“I strive to make any learning process fun! ”
 - Marko


I strive to make any learning process fun! I prioritize giving as much freedom as I can as music at its core is being creative and expressing yourself. I provide engaging material while also leaving you with enough room to ask your own questions.

Name: Marko (Full name will be provided upon registration)

Age: 27

Gender: male

I have a Bachelors degree in music from Humber College, which includes performance and music theory specialized in guitar. I've had the pleasure to study under some of Canada's greatest musicians such as guitarist Ted Quinlan, famous drummer Mark Kelso and proficient guitarist Geoff Young just to name a few. Through this program I was able to fully learn and understand a wide variety of music theory concepts and also develop my performance skill through playing in ensembles on campus and also off campus sometimes going as far as the United States.

In my 3rd year of Humber College, I had the pleasure of accepting an award from Yamaha Canada Music for being one of the busiest students playing on 16 final recitals.

I am a performer at heart! I've been so fortunate in the last few years to have played with some of the best tribute bands in the world such as Hotel California (The Original Eagles Tribute) and Absolute Journey (A Tribute to Journey) playing in front of crowds as large as 10,000 people in Canada and the United States. I've had the pleasure of travelling to Connecticut to teach at an arts camp for 2 months and was able to really understand what it meant when it came to learning something new and how important it is to make the process as fun and stress-free as possible. I also had an amazing teaching during my high school years. Through his years of experience and knowledge as a Doctor in music education, he showed me early on in my musical path how important it is to train my ears and listen critically to myself and any piece of music.


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).
