About Jonathan

Very Good Teacher

I took bass lessons with Jon last year, and it was truly a phenomenal experience! Jon worked with me on my level and really broke down music theory in a clear manner. He also was able to pinpoint the areas I needed the most work in, and then developed drills for me to use at home between lessons. His teaching style helped me develop from a below average bass player to a proficient level…in less than 6 months! I highly recommend Jon no matter your experience level.

Benjamin K. Glenside, PA

About Benjamin

I grew up in Glenside moved to Pittsburgh for school and came back because I love it here...I've been playing for 17 years and have a smorgasbord of influences from Zeppelin to the Beatles to Phish to Radiohead to the dirty projectors to Jay Z to Kurt Rosenwinkel & John Scofield. I have been composing and working with original bands for some 11 years and play regularly in the city and up and down the east coast. I have also been teaching for the past 11 years all over the Philadelphia area. i teach from a method I derived myself from years of learning both in and out of school. I think teaching music is both aural as well as visual and encourage students to listen to music a lot. most of all i feel that music is fun and the students should enjoy learning so i incorporate their ...

Ben was fabulous! He taught me music I wanted to play at a speed that fit for me and simplified harder songs for a beginner like me to still be able to play a song I loved! Great teacher and picks up on your strengths and weakness. I would highly recommended him as a teacher! He's also funny and would make lesson's enjoyable! He was friendly to my dog and birds as well :)

Excellent Instructor

I highly recommend Benjamin! I have had several instructors and I can honestly say that he is the best I've had so far. He doesn't stick to any rigid lesson plans. His teaching style is very dynamic, he will taylor the lesson to fit your interest and level of playing. He keeps things fun and interesting and is good at coming up with creative exercises to try and challenge you. He also knows a lot of different music styles from what I can tell. I highly recommend him.
Vince T. Philadelphia, PA

The electric bass is often the sonic foundation for rock music and many other contemporary styles, supplanting the upright bass and tuba (in some genres).

Vince began playing electric bass in 2002. He approached the instrument shortly after picking up the guitar. Vince is largely self taught, having transcribed many rock songs and by applying music theory to electric bass. Vince considers bass as a melodic instrument. He has recorded and performed on bass primarily for rock oriented music.

About Vince

Vince is a trumpeter, multi-instrumentalist, and composer/arranger in the Philadelphia and New York regions. His primary instrument for the past 16+ years is trumpet; he also performs on assorted brass, electric bass, and vocals. Vince holds a Master of Music degree in Jazz Performance from the University of the Arts; and holds a Bachelor of Science in Music degree concentrating in Jazz Studies and Theory & Composition from the State University of New York at New Paltz.

Vince first began teaching music in 2006 as the trumpet instructor at Silver Creek Central School; he directed trumpet master classes for high school students. Vince later took on various private students teaching trumpet, guitar, electric bass, improvisation, and arrangement & composition. While earning his ...

Arrangement and Composition · In studio
Vince is a wonderful teacher and a fantastic performer. He introduced me to a handful of rather advanced music theories when I was still a pre-intermediate music student and was able to communicate the ideas clearly and precisely. We don't play the same instruments--I'm a guitarist, he's a trumpeter--but it didn't matter since Vince uses clear language and live examples to demonstrate what he teaches. I learned a lot from him and would highly recommend lessons with him, especially one-on-one style lessons.

Vince really knows his stuff! I play acoustic guitar. I guess I would classify myself as an intermediate player. What I really like about Vince is the variety of instruments he can teach. I have had the chance to also learn about playing electric guitar and electric bass.

Vince is a very gifted multi-instrumentalist and recording engineer. He is an excellent trumpet player, bassist, backing vocalist and pro-tools engineer. His ear for arrangement is spot-on. Other defining attributes are his patience and willingness to teach. Vince will never look at the clock or feel like he is doing you a favor when he is teaching you something challenging. That, to me, is as important as technical prowess. Hire Vince as your teacher and you'll have no regrets!

Michael C. Philadelphia, PA

Using your favorite songs form any genre of music students become familiar with musical scales, arpeggios, chords, music notation and theory, rhythm and ear training.

About Michael

Michael C. was eleven years old when he began to play the electric bass guitar. He decided to get an electric bass because it was the one instrument needed to start a band among his friends. In addition to playing the electric bass, Michael enjoyed time practicing on the guitar and piano in high school. Transferring the knowledge and finger technique to the guitar came easy because of the similarities between guitar and the bass. And growing up with an upright piano in the house always lead to tinkering and eventually became a proficiency after college. In 1996 Michael enrolled at the the Philadelphia University of the Arts. He was awarded a presidential merit scholarship and a university grant based on his entrance audition. During his studies Michael was recruited for a student ...

Original Gift Idea

I purchased 5 lessons from Michael as a Christmas gift for my wife. It was a fantastic idea- she loves her lessons! Michael is a very skilled teacher and I have already noticed improvements in my wife's playing.

I highly recommend Michael for anyone looking for a music teacher.

Nathan D. North Wales, PA

I can teach 4-string, 5-string, and 4-string fretless bass.
I can show you all styles, from jamming along to basic notes of the radio-friendly variety to intricate scales that outline the melody.

I can teach you how to use a pick, which great for beginners. I also play finger-style and slap, which are more advanced techniques.

You'll learn how to keep it low in the mix and tightly maintain the rhythm section. Then if you want, stand out on a crowded stage with blistering leads and tasty slap parts!

I will also show you the very important methods to hone in your tone and gain properly to play properly with others and on recordings. I can show you how to play in lower tuning as well!

I typically will teach and write bass using tablature instead of standard sheet music. These are a simple set of lines and numbers that are much easier to read, and once learned will instantly give you access to thousands of songs.

I can give tips on playing live or being in a band, as ...

I have been playing guitar for 18 years on and off again (key words: on and off again). I must say that I have been in a “stalemate” in terms of advancing my capabilities for the longest time. I have been playing the same main riff Def Leppard songs over and over for years… In addition, I had no grasp of musical theory whatsoever, with the exception of the very basic chord formations.

I recently saw Nathan perform at a local open mic night. I was so taken back by his seamless ability to flow up and down the fret board. He is one guitar virtuoso, to say the least. He made an announcement to the crowd that he gave guitar lessons. I was intrigued and inquired more after he performed.

Currently, I have taken half a dozen guitar lessons under the guidance of Nathan. He has taken my guitar work to a whole other level – somewhere I couldn't even imagine doing. I told him my goal is to “solo” more and he taught me just that.

Nathan started teaching me in the key of C and tied in the boring theory in an easy way to grasp. By the end of my first lesson, I grasped E Phrygian, G Mixolydian, D Dorian, etc. and how they all interweave together.
Nathan is a class A guitar teacher. Without reservation, I recommend Nathan as your guitar teacher. He is respectful and will teach you at “your” pace, which is something my previous teacher 18 years ago never did. Thumbs up, Nathan; looking forward to next week’s lesson. I have been practicing a lot and I owe that to you!!!!!!!

My daughter had been taking lessons at a local guitar school for over a year before we tried Takelessons.com and found Nathan. It was the best thing that could have happened for us. My daughter has a renewed passion for her guitar. Nathan has worked at her pace and gotten her excited about learning,again. He is super friendly and can keep up with my nine year olds' never ending questions. He is very patient with her and tries to work with her interests. I'm sure we will be using him for lessons for a long time to come.
