“Discipline is Key, but motivation is The Door. ”
BOOK AN INTERVIEW WITH LEIBNITZ NOW
Discipline is Key, but motivation is The Door. I believe that there are five essential elements that are conducive to learning. (1) The teacher's role is to act as a guide. (2) Students must have access to hands-on activities. (3) Students should be able to have choices and let their curiosity direct their learning. (4) Students need the opportunity to practice skills in a safe environment. (5) Technology must be incorporated into the school day. I aim to bring an open mind, a positive attitude, and high expectations to the classroom each day. I believe that I owe it to students, as well as the community, to bring consistency, diligence, and warmth to my job in the hope that I can ultimately inspire and encourage such traits in the children as well.
Name: Leibnitz (Full name will be provided upon registration)
I have attended the following music schools and universities: - Berklee College Of Music Latin - Piano Performance - National University Of Colombia / Program For Initiation in Music Arts - Fernando Sor Audio & Music School / Singer-Songwriting Composition Studies Furthermore I have attended piano masterclasses with Svieta Solodovnikova from Russia and a live masterclass with the renown pianist Lang Lang from China. Although my piano professors were strict in teaching me classical music, it is almost automatically I developed the ability to apply the perfect classical technique to any other music genre such as pop, funk, jazz etc. I was also part of the choir in the National university Of Colombia.
Honours in Songwriting Studies with an average career score of 4.5 / 5.0
Although formal education has been a deciding and crucial factor in any professional career, I would say that internet has become such a great tool to be able to achieve one's personal goals or objectives. For this reason, I proudly admit that my ear training, my voice, jazz and composition skills have been deeply rooted and enhanced in self-curiosity and online courses. Thanks to the current access to global information, I also have been able to record, produce, mix, and master music projects with excellent results and quality.
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).
