For those who want to groove.

Time, tone, voice-leading,and melody!
These are the four components to great bass playing.
I like to focus on learning how to be a great bass player by working through technique and learning great bass parts from recordings.
As students progress we can work on how to write your own bass lessons, and get into more advanced but crucial subjects, such as voice leading.

All around wonderful teacher

Marcus is quite the gifted teacher. By far the best I've had the pleasure to aspire under. He is very easy to understand, and doesn't overwhelm you, taking time on the little things (the most important). He creates an atmosphere that is encouraging to learn in. We all know those teachers that create a stressful environment that inhibits progressive learning, as well as frustration in yourself. Marcus is certainly the opposite. He is also quite easy to communicate with--Creating lesson plans, setting goals, etc... In summation, a professional and a friend I would recommend to anyone and everyone.

The best of the best!

I've been taking bass lessons from Bjorn for over a year. As a beginner, I struggled to play until I started taking lessons with Bjorn. As a skilled instructor, he knew how to take me several levels ahead. In a matter of a few lessons, I was able to understand theory, strengthen my hands with proper exercises, and play complete songs. Every lesson is structured and meaningful. Bjorn is a professional and dedicated instructor who knows how to bring out the very best in you. I would highly recommend him to both beginners and advanced players alike!

Seriously the best!

I've been taking lessons from Bjorn for nearly 7 years now (since I was 15) and I honestly could not have asked for a better experience so far! He is a phenomenal teacher that covers everything from theory and technique to improvisation and incorporates your own unique music preferences, influences, and interests into every lesson. He is a true rocker and a great friend. He is patient, but knows how to push you to be your best and that, among everything else I've listed and more, is what makes him so amazing.
If you want to learn from the best in a super chill environment with an amazing guy Bjorn really is the teacher for you :)

Bass Lessons - The RIGHT Way

I have been taking lessons from Bjorn on and off for some time now. I had already been playing bass for years, but Bjorn pushed me in the direction of experiencing a whole new skill level. Focusing on technique and muscle memory training, he showed me ways how to tackle any riff or song so I could have complete confidence while playing out. I play in several cover bands and even if I think I have all of my songs down pat, I get a lesson from Bjorn just before a show and he shows me a new world of possibilities. Bjorn's expertise allows him to train almost any bassist, aspiring or seasoned. I always look forward to my upcoming lessons and highly recommend Bjorn to take your playing to the next level.

I am a beginner at bass and Joshua is very patient. He makes learning fun and teaches in a way that is easy to follow. He is a very skilled musician and his passion for music shows. I highly recommend him.
Owen C. Los Angeles, CA

Electric bass is a great introduction to bass instruments and to the world of music in general. Playing just one note at a time allows younger children to experience the fun of playing music without being overwhelmed by chordal instruments like piano and guitar, where more coordination is required at first.

About Owen

Thank you for taking the time to look at my profile!

I love to share my knowledge of music with other people. At UCLA I taught and performed for children of all ages in Los Angeles and around the world.

Teaching is important to me because I feel that music is all about connecting with others. It is also about so many other things: self expression, communication, and lifelong learning. Also, it's just plain fun. I want my students to enjoy learning as much as they do playing!

In our lessons we'll focus on learning how to play the music that you want to learn! And along the way we'll work on fundamentals that will allow you to branch out into other genres, too.

Music is my favorite thing in the world, and I want it to be yours too! It can change your life!

Seth W. Los Angeles, CA

I can teach beginning bass lesssons. Fretboard knowledge, tuning, various techniques and following chord progressions as well as melodic concepts and unique ideas to give your playing an edge.

About Seth

I've taught students of all ages everything from popular songs to music theory, technique, all aspects of performing and bands, gear and equipment knowledge and much more.

I approach every student differently and give them goals to reach that will help them in moving forward with their playing and musical knowledge. I make the lessons as enjoyable as possible, mixing taking the music seriously which is essential with a great sense of humor that is also essential. Playing music is supposed to be fun! I will help you reach your goals and have the best time doing so.
