“ I will tailor each lesson to what WE believe is best for you, as a musician and a person.”
BOOK AN INTERVIEW WITH LOGAN NOW
Music is a fundamental part of the human condition. It speaks to us physically, emotionally, and spiritually and has lasting, transformative effects. I believe in the whole musician. The cause of a wrong note could be anything from anxiety to poor posture to the lack of an emotional connection to your song. I will tailor each lesson to what WE believe is best for you, as a musician and a person.
Name: Logan (Full name will be provided upon registration)
I have a BM from Ithaca College where I studied voice both scientifically and in practice through speech pathology and neuro-psychology classes. I have additionally studied the voice through the lense of conservatory training in Vocal Pedagogy and Performance. I additionally hold a master's degree from the University of Durham in the UK in Music Cognition research. My voice training focused on vocal mechanics, studied through musical theatre, folk, and the classical styles. Additionally, I have been a voice teacher and music director for a theatre company for the past 5 years.
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).
Logan can provide online instruction. While other platforms are possible BAH strongly recommends the use of the Zoom video conferencing platform as it is optimized for music lessons and audio quality.
