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, but lessons at my home, or via Zoom, are also possible though at more limited times during the week.
(I live in the 15th arrondissement near the Centre Commerciale Beaugrenelle, metro line 10 Charles Michels, or RATP bus 30, 42, 70, or 88).
On Mondays and Tuesdays I 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 contact Matt or Jason at Rock-U (https://rock-u.fr/contact-us/ or email:firstname.lastname@example.org)
I do not teach on Fridays or Sundays.
All lessons are 1 hour in duration.
Note that tuition fees are paid in advance for 4 lessons at a time (see below for full details). Prices are…
40€ per lesson starting between before 5 PM, weekdays (i.e. 160€ per block of 4 lessons)
45€ per lesson starting after 5 PM on weekdays, and all day Saturday (180€ per block of 4 lessons).
Payment and Scheduling
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.
While most students will choose weekly lessons, you are not obliged to book a lesson for every week – the 4 lessons you pay for can be spread across the 2 month period as you require. Use this flexibility to your advantage try to anticipate travel, school vacations etc. I only ask that you book lessons definitively when you pay for them.
Missed lessons: Once lessons are booked and paid for, I will always try to make up for missed lessons before our next scheduled lesson but it simply may not be possible. No refunds or credit will be given for lessons that students cancel or miss.
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 40€ 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.
