BOOK AN INTERVIEW WITH JEREMY NOW
Back when I was in high school, I remember my first performance with music. They may have been through the video game Rock Band; regardless, performing for a crowd left me with a surreal and sublime feeling! Music became more than just a pastime after that day; it became a lifestyle worthy of pursuit for the rest of my life! Even though I have studied hard to be able to perform and compose demanding and highly complex music, my goal is always to come back to those roots. Music is about having fun and tapping into the depth of your emotions! I like to incorporate a relaxed yet stern approach to my students so they are always on track to their fullest potential and having a blast along the way!
Name: Jeremy (Full name will be provided upon registration)
I have pursued an education in the field of music with a strong focus on guitar and music scoring, achieving notable honors along the way. I hold a Diploma from Vancouver Island University in Jazz Studies with a specialization in guitar, where I dedicated myself to mastering the intricacies of this versatile instrument. Additionally, I have earned a Music Scoring Certificate with high honors from Sheridan College, demonstrating my proficiency in the art of creating musical scores and arrangements. These achievements reflect my commitment to musical excellence and my passion for both performance and composition within the realm of jazz and beyond.
Honours in Jazz Studies, High Honours in Music Scoring to Film, Coast Capital Savings Entrepreneurship & Innovation Scholarship.
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).
