“I believe learning music should centre around the core of the process, that it is called "playing" for a reason.”
BOOK AN INTERVIEW WITH ROMAN NOW
Whether you want to start a career in music, serenade your friends around the campfire, or rock your local coffee shop, with a little push in the right direction, anybody can play music. I believe learning music should centre around the core of the process, that it is called "playing" for a reason.
Name: Roman (Full name will be provided upon registration)
I have a Bachelor of Music from Grant MacEwan University in Edmonton, Alberta where I majored in Performance for guitar. I am currently a Masters student at the London College of Music in the UK where I am also a Performance student, studying Country Music.
Graduated with Distinction - Grant MacEwan University
I am fortunate to have been, and continue to be, a session guitar player for some of Alberta's top country artists and have toured with multiple bands and artists across different genres. I have been the musical director on a number of projects, including an artist I toured with for nearly two years. I have worked some studio sessions and been able to front a number of my own projects. I have teaching experience both privately and in a music store setting, but consider myself a student for life. The guitar sparked my love for music, but it is the music that keeps me playing today.
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).
Roman 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.
