Name: Liam (Full name will be provided upon registration)
Delighted to share my musical journey at Visible Music College in Memphis, TN! Majoring in guitar while studying piano and music production, I made the Dean's List. Released my first solo album during the program and followed up with four more projects. Grateful for my amazing guitar teachers, Holden Hastings and Dave Clo, who inspired me.
Visible Music College - Dean's List Finalist
Working at Long & McQuade, Canada's largest music retailer, was an incredible privilege. It provided me with invaluable opportunities to cater to the unique needs of every musician who stepped into the store, regardless of their expertise level. Whether they were beginners or seasoned veterans, I learned to address their individual requirements with care and attention. During my time at Long & McQuade, I not only grew as a musician but also embarked on creating my first solo projects. This process taught me how to piece together the musical puzzle, encouraging me to explore other areas of music beyond my core expertise in guitar. These experiences have significantly enhanced my musical abilities and, in turn, have made me a more adept instructor. Through these diverse and enriching experiences, I've honed my skills and knowledge, empowering me to connect with my students on a deeper level. It's a fulfilling journey of growth that has allowed me to share my passion for music and guide others along their musical paths.
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).
