BOOK AN INTERVIEW WITH MIGUEL NOW
I consider music to be essential to everyone's education since it's a basic part of who we are. And, on the other hand, different aspects of music can be approached from different points of view, that's make the study of music even more fascinating. You never stop learning, and overall, when you have the opportunity, to discover the music with a new teacher or a teacher with different background.
Name: Miguel (Full name will be provided upon registration)
I studied composition at the Royal Northern College of Music from 2002 to 2003. My body of work includes several premieres such as "Sweet Water Poems" in 2001, "Whale Project" (an electroacoustic piece) in 2003, a String Quartet in 2004, "Mini Piezas" in 2010, and "A una Dama Bizca y Hermosa" in 2011. I also composed incidental music to be performed in real-time for the movie "The Gold Rush" in 2012. One of my notable achievements was the international premiere of the children's opera "Yorick, El Jorobado" (Yorick, The Hunchback) in Buitrago de Lozoya, Spain, in 2015. In addition to composition, I earned a Bachelor's degree in singing from the Conservatory of Music of Celaya in Mexico. I've had the privilege of training vocally with Stuart Graham in Toronto, Carlos Aransay in London (U.K.), and also in Mexico. As a performer, I've been involved in several operas like "Dido & Aeneas," "Suor Angelica," "Die Zauberflöte," "Bastien und Bastienne," "La Serva Padrona," and "Yorick, The Hunchback," all with the group Opera Omnia. I've also participated in lyric galas, operatic galas, and international tours. Some of the tours that stand out include performances in the Madrid Sierra in 2015, Panama in 2016, and Castilla y León, Spain, in 2019. In 2017, I had the honor of conducting Mozart's Requiem during a concert series at the San Martin Pinario Church in Santiago de Compostela, Spain.He also obtained a Bacherlor in singing from the Conservatory of Music of Celaya in Mexico.

Rates for instruction:
30 minute private lesson: $39.00
45 minute private lesson: $49.00

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).
