Gabriel offers private lessons to students of all levels. Acoustic and electric guitar are welcome. Private lessons are catered to each individual student's needs, whether you are learning your first chord, itching to dive into music theory, or want to master that thrilling lick.
By scheduling private lessons, you acknowledge that you have read and agree to the payment and cancellation terms listed below.
PRIVATE LESSON PAYMENT POLICIES
Payments reserve a specific weekly time slot for four lessons per month. There are no prorated rates for missed lessons. Why?
I understand that things come up, but reserving a weekly lesson time encourages steady progress for the student, and ensures that the time slot will be held for you when you return. This makes a predictable living wage possible for me as a self-employed teacher.
Payments are due no later than the 21st before the applicable month.
New students: Payment must be received three days prior to your first lesson. Otherwise, the time will be made available to other students.
Please check the lesson calendar below to confirm lesson days. If the calendar shows fewer than four lessons in a month, charges will be adjusted.
PRIVATE LESSON CANCELLATION POLICIES
There are no refunds or make-ups (ie. rescheduling) for canceled lessons.   Why?
When you pay for lessons, I reserve that time slot for you and turn away students who may also want that time slot. With a cancellation and a make-up lesson, two time slots are dedicated to a single student, one for free, and I cannot schedule other students. This creates unexpected gaps in both my schedule and in my primary source of income. Click here for an article on this topic.
