BOOK AN INTERVIEW WITH TIMOTHY NOW
As a teacher, musician, and person, I am passionate about sharing the joy and transformative power of music with others. For me, drumming is not just a skill, but a way of life. It is a means of expression, communication, and connection that transcends language and cultural barriers. My approach to teaching is rooted in the belief that every person has the ability to learn and grow as a musician. I strive to create a supportive and collaborative learning environment, where students feel empowered to explore their creativity and take risks. I understand that every student is unique, with their own strengths, challenges, and goals, and I tailor my teaching style and curriculum to meet their individual needs. In addition to my formal training at Humber College and with Trinity College London, I have had the privilege of studying privately with some of the most respected drummers in the world. These experiences have not only helped me to develop my own skills as a musician, but have also influenced my approach to teaching. I believe that a great teacher must also be a great student, always open to learning and growing. So, whether you are a beginner or an experienced musician, I am committed to helping you achieve your musical goals and discover the joy of drumming. With a focus on developing your physical technique, musicality, and most importantly, having fun, my lessons are designed to challenge and inspire you to reach your full potential. If you are interested in studying with me and embarking on this exciting musical journey, it would be an honor to have the opportunity to be your teacher.
Name: Timothy (Full name will be provided upon registration)
I'm a drummer currently in my second semester at Humber College, where I am pursuing a degree in music. At Humber, I've had the opportunity to learn from some of the best drummers and musicians in the industry, which has allowed me to deepen my understanding of rhythm, music theory, and performance. In addition to my studies at Humber, I hold an Advanced diploma (LTCL) in music performance from Trinity College London. This rigorous program not only provided me with a strong foundation in technical skills and performance, but also exposed me to a range of styles and approaches to drumming. Additionally, I have been fortunate enough to study privately with some of the world's best drummers. Their expertise and mentorship has not only helped me to refine my technique and musicality, but has also influenced my teaching style.
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).
