Description of the service
EastChamber.com is a website listing people who provide or wish to provide independent private music teaching and mentoring services in Canada and other select locations around the globe (hereinafter 'instructors'). The information in the listings is as provided by instructors and may include instructor's description, photo, location and other information. Potential learners can use the website to find independent music instructors matching their requirements and send music teaching inquiries via a form on the Site or direct email to contact instructors.
EastChamber.com is owned and operated by East Chamber Music Inc. (hereinafter "The Company" or "We"), a music education and services company registered and located in Ontario, Canada. The instructors listed on the Site are not employed by the Company in any way and serve fully independently as independent providers of music teaching services.
The Company actively promotes EastChamber.com and its content online, thus helping independent instructors find more potential students. For the service, The Company charges a commission fee which is included in teaching rates shown on the Site.
The Company accepts listings from people in Canada, the USA and some select cities worldwide who provide or willing to provide independent private music teaching services. These can be professional music teachers, musicians or those who are confident that their music skills are sufficient to teach music.
A person who would like to be listed on the site is required to submit certain information which includes full name, contact information, city, information on your music background, experience, preferred teaching place, availability and photo. Upon submission, their profiles shall be reviewed and, if approved, posted on EastChamber.com.
The Company shall provide instructors with additional details, terms and conditions once it receives the first inquiry for services provided by the instructor.
An instructor may delete or put on a hold his/her/their teaching profile at any time by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
People who consider hiring an independent music instructor (hereinafter 'Learners') can submit a music teaching inquiry describing their music learning needs and other preferences by using the form on the Site or by direct email. It can be an inquiry addressed to a particular instructor or a general teaching inquiry in a specific city or town. The Company shall review the inquiry and forward it to the appropriate instructor, alone with learner's contact information. An instructor shall try to get in touch with the learner by using the contact details provided by the learner. If the requested instructor is unavailable or does not meet some learner's requirements, we can suggest the learner to consider some other instructors. We can further help establish an initial contact between an instructor and learner.
When an initial contact between a learner and instructor is established, they shall deal and communicate with each other directly without any involvment from The Company. This applies to all communication, discussion of all the details, arrangements related to the place and time for teaching sessions, their frequency, teaching methods used, specifics of particular teaching sessions, etc. In particular, a learner is supposed to pay the Company directly prior to each teaching session by purchasing one of the lessons packages offered on the Site.
