J'ai suivi une formation au Cégep de Drummondville, où j'ai obtenu un DEC (Diplôme d'Études Collégiales) en Musique. Cette étape a posé les bases solides de mes compétences musicales et de ma compréhension de la basse électrique. Par la suite, j'ai poursuivi ma passion musicale à l'Université de Sherbrooke, où j'ai décroché un BAC en musique avec une spécialisation dans la basse électrique. Cette expérience universitaire m'a permis d'approfondir mes connaissances, d'explorer de nouveaux horizons musicaux et de me perfectionner en tant que bassiste électrique. Mon parcours scolaire en musique basse électrique m'a doté des compétences techniques et artistiques nécessaires pour exceller dans ce domaine exigeant. J'ai acquis une solide compréhension de la théorie musicale, une maîtrise de divers styles musicaux et une capacité à m'exprimer de manière créative à travers la basse électrique. Ces deux écoles ont joué un rôle essentiel dans mon développement en tant que musicien professionnel. I received my education at Cégep de Drummondville, where I earned a DEC (Diplôme d'Études Collégiales) in Music. This stage laid the strong foundations for my musical skills and my understanding of the electric bass. Following that, I continued to pursue my musical passion at the University of Sherbrooke, where I obtained a Bachelor in Music with a specialization in electric bass. This university experience allowed me to deepen my knowledge, explore new musical horizons, and refine my skills as an electric bassist. My academic journey in electric bass music equipped me with the technical and artistic skills necessary to excel in this demanding field. I gained a solid understanding of music theory, mastery of various musical styles, and the ability to express myself creatively through the electric bass.

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).
