“The development of a musical self is something complex and unique to each person.”
BOOK AN INTERVIEW WITH LOïC NOW
The development of a musical self is something complex and unique to each person. I experimented a lot in that field by crafting different exercises for myself all along my progression. I want to help my students discover their ambitions and how to pursue them. I followed both a classical and a jazz formation and I realized the importance of learning the different styles that follow our musical taste. For example , classical music, as a acquired taste, is sometimes not suitable for some young musicians. Learning music is a long journey and we must build a strong ear to accompany our technical progress. That's why music listening and ear training are also important elements of my teaching.
Name: Loïc (Full name will be provided upon registration)
I studied piano privately from from the age of five until the age of sixteen, I completed the 11 degrees of the preparatory school of Université Laval during that period. Then, I got accept to Cégep St-Laurent in Classical Piano Performance where I studied one year with Guy-Francois Morel. My education path changed there and i finally earned a double major in Jazz Composition/Jazz Trombone Performance. This program helped me develop my craft in Classical and Jazz Trombone, Jazz Piano, Arranging, Improvisation and Composition. I'm currently studying at McGill University in the Jazz Performance program with Dave Grott. I have also sang in choirs all of my musical life.
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).
