NOTE: Due to severe Long COVID since February 2022 I am currently unable to teach. You should still contact me if you are interested in lessons and I will add your name to my waiting list, but at this point in time I do not forsee teaching before September 2023 at the earliest. Thank you for understanding.
I teach from Monday to Thursday, 9 AM to 9 PM, and SATURDAYS from 9 AM to 3 PM.
Lessons generally take place in your home, at my home, or via Zoom.
(I live in the 15th arrondissement near the Centre Commerciale Beaugrenelle, metro line 10 Charles Michels, or RATP bus 30, 42, 70, or 88).
I also teach at the Rock-U music program. You do not have to be enrolled in a Rock-U band to take lessons with me at Rock-U but priority may be given to existing Rock-U enrollees. For full details and prices contact Matt Black at Rock-U (https://rock-u.fr/contact-us/ or email:firstname.lastname@example.org)
All lessons are a minimum of 1 hour in duration (I usually go longer if we both have the time to spare).
50€ per lesson, paid in advance for block of 4 lessons at a time. Payment is due at the first lesson, when the remaining lessons in the set must be booked. Those 4 lessons can take place any time within 2 calendar months, though will usually be at the same time and same day of the week.
60€ per lesson « à la carte », for lessons whenever you wish to schedule them. The lesson is booked and confirmed when you pay.
No refunds or credit can be given for lessons that students cancel or miss. Please understand that no independent music teachers have waiting lists of people ready to take a last minute lessons. Every cancelled lesson would be real lost income, and we simply cannot run our lives and businesses that way.
I recommend students choose weekly lessons, but you are not obliged to book a lesson for every week – the 4 lessons you pay for can be spread across a 2 month period as you require. Use this flexibility to your advantage! Try to anticipate travel, school vacations etc.
If you need help deciding how often to schedule your lessons, see my blog post, “How often should I take guitar lessons?“.
Guitar Tech Services for my Students
It is very important to keep your instruments in top shape and optimum playability if you are to get the most enjoyment out of your playing, and your lessons. As an experienced guitar technician I am the perfect choice to help with your string changes, set up, adjustments, and repairs of your guitars. To that end I offer my paid students this service at a reduced rate of 50€ per hour, or in lieu of lesson time.
Note that standard prices for these services are typically €60 per hour. This represents a substantial saving to my students while keeping their instruments in their best playing condition.
How much it will cost you is not possible to say until I see the instrument and discuss your requirements. A simple string change might take only 15 minutes. A full clean, string change, and setup could take an hour and a half.
If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact me here, I always try to reply within 24 hours.
