Teaching Voice is a delightful journey of discovery for both my students and me. Together, we explore and understand the intricacies of their unique vocal instruments, continuously learning and growing in the process. Witnessing their joy and excitement when they grasp a new concept or uncover something special in a song is incredibly rewarding. Throughout our lessons, I guide my students through exercises to expand their physical capabilities and deepen their understanding of music with their vocal instrument. But it goes beyond technique; we also dive into the art of combining words and music to express the emotions and sentiments that hold significance to them. This creative aspect of music allows them to connect with songs on a deeper level, bringing a sense of fulfillment and accomplishment to their performances. Seeing my students flourish in their vocal journey fills me with immense satisfaction and gratitude.

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

Age: 60's

Gender: male

My academic and performance training include the following: Indiana University - Doctor of Musical Arts in Voice University of Northern Iowa - Master of Arts in Music University of Iowa - Bachelor of Music AIMS in Graz, Austria

I have performed Classical, Music Theatre, Jazz and Pop repertoire in Canada, the United States, Germany, Austria, and Italy. One of the things I enjoy most about teaching students Voice is learning about their voices together. In that way, I learn new things about Voice as we both discover their instrument. So, I add to my knowledge as well as theirs.





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).
