Instructing you how to play the bass in a fun and energetic way.

About Joshua

Music has always been a part of Josh's life. He started playing around with instruments at the age of three and singing at the age of seven. He instantly fell in love with music and grew a passion for it. At the age of five he attended his first musical concert, Garth Brooks. Josh loved every minute of it and he could see himself on a stage like Garth Brooks in the future. One day he heard someone playing guitar down in an alley and from that day forward he knew he wanted to play that instrument and it would become his specialty. In high school he played in the jazz band and was the lead guitarist. He also picked up the trumpet and played it in the jazz band. During his high school days music became his life and he created his own personal band. He wrote songs for his band ...

Very Helpful Singing Instructor

Josh has been teaching me singing for 3 months now and I feel like i've made a world of improvement. He works with me to find what my problems are and how I should go about fixing them. I think that any level of singer will be able to learn a lot from him.

Awesome guitar teacher!!!!

Josh is a great guitar teacher. He is patient when he needs to be and makes me work hard when he needs me too. I have learned a great deal about guitar taking lessons from Josh. Not only do I know how to play guitar but he also teaches me the theory behind the music and for a bonus he teaches songwriting also. Everything you need to be the best musician you want to be. I would definitely recommend Josh to anyone who wants to start learning guitar. He can teach all ages so don't wait.
Ray M. Arlington, TX

Beginner to advanced.
Bass guitar is one of the most enjoyable instruments in the world, in my
opinion. It's not difficult to learn (if you play guitar, you basically already know how to play bass), and one can begin learning songs very quickly.
All styles and techniques, including slap-style.

About Ray

Born in Arlington, Texas, I began playing guitar and bass guitar in high school. After studying for several years under Joey Faust, I studied Jazz, Classical Guitar, and Music Theory at TCC in Fort Worth. I've been teaching since 2003, my students ranging in age from 3 to over 70. I also play piano, mandolin, banjo, ukulele, and auto harp.

*** Lesson Details ***
I believe lessons should be fun, so all lessons are tailored to the individual student, based on the student's interests and goals. Students are free to progress at their own pace, and to choose their own learning material. Styles and techniques include Rock, Country, Blues, Bluegrass, Jazz, Shred, Slide Guitar, Classical Guitar, and Slap Bass, to name a few.

My Banjo Lessons

Ray has already helped this 47 Year old kid to make large leaps in my understanding of music theory and my instrument. I really appreciate Rays knowledge of music and his ability to break it down so that anyone can understand and put into practice the knowledge gained very quickly. My hour lessons go so fast that I wonder where the time went.

Ray has been very flexible to this student and has been very accommodating to all the questions I have. He is patient and will go over anything again until you understand the lesson.

I Highly recommend Ray to any level of student all ages just starting out or someone who wants to gain more knowledge with the instrument you have.

I appreciate what he has taught me so far and am very excited to see where this journey takes me.

Ray is awesome!

I am not your typical mandolin student. I am a 54 year old grama who decided to learn to play the mandolin for something fun to do. I'm so glad i picked Ray as a teacher! I chose him initially based on high reviews from parents of young children, so I figured I would probably not be too much of a challenge for him. I looked forward to my lessons every week. Ray is positive, upbeat, encouraging and very patient. Even though I only go for half an hour each week, I have been able to learn one song every week. I am now working on my third song. I highly recommend Ray to any age group.
Billy H. Arlington, TX

I am mostly experienced in bass thru playing on country and pop recordings in the studio. I have also played live gigs on bass thruout my life for many years.

About Billy

I teach my students how to understand how music is put together so they can learn even more on their own.

I read, write, and play all styles and I focus on teaching the student fundamentals that work in all styles of music ....AND I get them going on the style they are interested in - pop, rock, country, folk, etc.

I have spent my entire life in the music industry and I can show you how to use what I teach to apply to the real world. I have also been a successful songwriter and I can work with students to learn about song structure and song writing.

I am also good at preparing students for college music classes.

*** Lesson Details ***
I like to break it down into small steps and accomplish them, then move on to the next.

Each person learns differently and I am good at ...

My son has been in lessons with Jordan for over 2 years now. It is his favorite hour of the week! He naturally enjoys the technical aspects of guitar but Jordan's ability to make him feel confident and love the music that their learning has been my favorite part of the time we spend with Jordan each week. "He's just cool." -my 11 y/o son. Most importantly, we value that our family shares an eternal perspective with Jordan and my son is now practicing on Sunday nights with the 5th grade worship team at our church. We could not be more pleased with Jordan as our teacher.

My 10 and 5 yr. old are currently taking piano lessons with Jordan. Jordan is very patient especially with my 5 yr. old who prefers to play rather than practice however he was able to get her to focus and learn the pieces. They enjoyed working with Jordan as well since I no longer hear complaints from them when it's time for lessons. :)

I wanted to express how much my son loves to play guitar thanks to Jordan who is a wonderful and patient teacher. He really listens to what my son likes and wants to learn and makes sure his lessons are achieving that goal. Jordan has a real gift to work with and teach children music. My son always comes home from lessons and wants to play us what he has learned. I am so glad I found Jordan to teach my son guitar!

Nothing can beat seeing an experienced person playing the bass, except being able to ask that person questions and get answers. One on one private lessons are what I offer in a comfortable, relaxed environment. I can show you exactly how to make all the moves for playing correctly. This makes progress exponentially faster. We also get into theory, which is WHY you are playing the notes you play in songs.

About Michael

My name is Mike E. I am a resident of Lake Highlands. I played by ear for eleven years before starting training on music and how to teach by Mr. Terrill Gardner. Terrill took me through music from the Rolling Stones all the way through "Modern Method for Guitar" books I, II, and III from Berklee College in Boston. He was my mentor and taught me a method that he spent thirty years perfecting. It works, guaranteed. He also taught me on bass guitar and banjo. I can help you.

Lessons are customized to meet the needs of the individual, with the primary focus on playing songs as soon as possible. I am talking about playing along with the pros, not reading notes for months and playing "Mary Had a Little Lamb." I have combined my "by ear" knowledge with ...

Mike is great, he simplifies a complex music reading into plain simple English. Within a few lessons, Mike had me playing all the major chords and using them to play songs. I look forward to being able to play more complex songs with Mike.

Mike amazed me!

On a free introductory meeting with Mike, he taught me every major chord on the piano in ONE SENTENCE! Then he taught me every minor chord in ONE MORE SENTENCE. His personality and demeanor matched his knowledge. Most of all, he made it all fun.
