“I aim to create a friendly and inviting atmosphere, without stress or performance pressure.”
BOOK AN INTERVIEW WITH JULIUS NOW
I am passionate about music, very open minded and curious about any style and genre. I was taught by some great teachers and want to continue applying these principles with my own students. I am happy to discuss personal wishes and needs, I am very calm and empathic, yet very impassioned about music. I seek to support my students on their journey and provide technical knowledge, a wide range of expertise coming from my international performances, but mainly want to support the joy of music. I aim to create a friendly and inviting atmosphere, without stress or performance pressure. I am looking forward to meeting and working with you!
Name: Julius (Full name will be provided upon registration)
I started to play and learn about music with my grandfather at the age of five years. He thought me to read notes and play some tunes on the accordion, after which he decided to sent me to the local music school. Attending my accordion lessons, I started to be very curious about the piano as well. Quickly, I could find myself a teacher and was playing both instrument with the same level of commitment. Being introduced to Jazz through my piano teacher, my education was diversified and is ever since continuing to do so. I played in several Big Bands, smaller ensembles and started to compose as well. Finishing school, I started to study both accordion and piano in Germany and finished with two Bachelor of Musics. Having spent one interim year in Copenhagen, Denmark, I am now very happy to continue my studies at the Université de Montréal.
Awarded among others with young talent development award in Germany, German National Music Competition and others.
Rates and Studio Policies
Registration Fee: $25.00 (One-time lifetime registration fee may be used by all family members)
Rates for instruction:
30 minute private lesson: $39.00
45 minute private lesson: $49.00
60 minute private lesson: $59.00
Travel charge: additional $15.00 per visit (for lessons in a client's home as opposed to my studio)
1. Cancellation Policy
Lessons not cancelled or rescheduled with at least 24 hours notice are billable to the client and payable to the teacher. This does not of course apply to travel fees unless the notice is effectively given at the door and the teacher has travelled to the location.
2. Cessation (quitting) Policy
A client must provide a 2 lesson notice period to stop lessons. So a weekly student needs to give 2 weeks of notice, a biweekly student works out to 3 weeks notice and a twice weekly student works out to a week of notice.
3. Illness Policy
Lessons cancelled due to illness or extraordinary circumstances with less than 24 hours notice remain billable to the client and payable to the teacher.
BAH teachers are encouraged to offer a make-up lesson at a future date in the interest of client relations and general goodwill. This only makes sense as teaching a student with the flu for example, will ruin the rest of your week's employment.
No more than 2 lessons may be made up due to illness within a 60 day period.
4. Rescheduling Policy
Any lesson can be cancelled or rescheduled with at least 24 hours notice.
Summer Vacation and Extended Absence Policy
Clients may schedule longer absences for trips etc. 24 hours notice is required.
It is normal and typical for students and about 20% of our teachers to schedule a break in the summer. We do not enforce a notice period (see cessation of lessons) at the end of a long summer break.
5. Evaluation Period
There are no free trial lessons with Beethoven at Home but we do offer a 2 lesson evaluation period where it is easy to try out a teacher. There are no free lessons during the evaluation period and clients may choose to discontinue the lessons at any time by providing the required 24 hours notice. After the student's 3rd lesson the required 2 lesson notice period will apply (see cessation of lessons above).
