“ I take into account the student's strengths and weaknesses and try to work around their interests.”
BOOK AN INTERVIEW WITH SUDHANSHU NOW
I believe that every student requires a personal touch and added effort from the teacher , so as to bring the best output that he or she can deliver. One size fits all is generally not the approach I take when starting with new students. For students who have played guitar for a few years I take into account their strengths and weaknesses and try to work around their interests. Songplaying and songwriting is also an approach that I try with enthusiastic players who seek music education to transform their hobby into profession and as I am also a qualified music producer so my insight to recording, editing and producing music also helps my students.
Name: Sudhanshu (Full name will be provided upon registration)
Musician, Composer and a Guitar Instructor, I was born to a conservative Brahmin family. My grandfather was the 13th generation of Sanskrit, Arts and Hindu philosophy Scholar and Educator. As my mother played Indian Classical Sitar, I started taking interest in music, and thus, my foundation was laid in Indian classical music at a early age. Later at the age of 9, I started playing Guitar as I was influenced by Pink Floyd, Guns n’ Roses, Rush and other bands from the rock n’ roll era. I studied Classical Music Theory from Associate Board for the Royal School of Music, London and Electric Guitar from Rockschool, London. I have been playing live music and doing studio sessions for other artists since 2011. I am also an Audio Engineer and a producer and have worked at Oviya Studios, New Delhi for a few years. My playing style is heavily influenced by players like Guthrie Govan, John Petrucci, Greg Howe, Tom Quayle and Steve Vai and my legato techniques and diverse fretboard knowledge makes my playing style both unique and recognizable for an avid music listener. I am currently studying Game Audio Design at Berklee College of Music.
Won Best Guitar Solo 3 years consecutively at IIT Thomso Fest from 2007 to 2009
Legato Techniques learnt from Tom Quayle Privately leant rock fusion guitar from world renowned guitarist Greg Howe
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).
