Music has played a significant role in my life. Learning music can be healing and motivating to anyone out there and I find joy in helping others get in touch with their musical side and form a strong connection with music. Making progress and having fun with harmony and theory, rhythm studies, ear training and technique is my main focus. I like applying everything I teach in a practical sense so that everything isn't just a practice drill or rudiment. As important it is to practice technique through repetition, it is also important to apply everything you learn to create music and enjoy the process, and I strive to help you learn and create. I also love sharing music with everyone, so you're in for a treat when it comes to artist recommendations!

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

Age: 30's

Gender: male

My music journey began when I was 14 years old and I've dedicated my life to music ever since. I have spent the past 14 years in learning and mastering the craft of playing the guitar and music composition and becoming a better professional musician. In the earlier part of my life, I had private guitar teachers and attended smaller music schools back in India. Later in 2018, I graduated and earned an Associate of Arts Degree in Music performance for Guitar, from Musicians Institute, Los Angeles. After that I have years of experience in teaching Guitar and music to students of all ages.

I am proficient at playing guitar, music composition and production as well as playing instruments such as the drums and bass guitar. My main genres of music include, but are not limited to, Progressive Metal, Jazz, Fusion, Funk and Rock. Through the years of learning music, I have also released 3 albums and have learnt music production skills through that process. I have over 10 years of experience in using music production software and studio recording.


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).
