Victor P. Mission, KS

I've been a bass player most of my life, and have played all genres, from Classical double bass, to Jazz, to Rock, Country... pick a genre, I've probably done at least one show. Yes, I teach slap too. Bass-playing is an art like no other; subtle, not the first instrument that the audience pays attention to, but as a bass player YOU "drive the bus," and YOU are the one who makes the groove.

About Victor

With a Doctor of Musical Arts from the prestigious Indiana University Jacobs School of Music, and 12 years of University music teaching, you will be hard pressed to find a more comprehensive, diverse, and qualified music teacher anywhere. Let me help you create a music lesson experience tailored to YOUR specific interests and needs! One size does NOT fit all, and I have the experience you help you reach your musical goals in a way that focuses on your strengths, while catching you up on those less-strong bits. Lessons are friendly, relaxed experiences that not only teach you to play the instrument of your choice (and the recording studio is an instrument!), but also supply you with valuable theoretical and historical context to provide a richness to your musical experience that most ...

Michael F. Pleasant Hill, MO

The bass guitar is amazingly easy to get started with. People are surprised when they are playing a song that they love in the first or second lesson! I can teach you a variety of techniques including jazz, rock, and blues techniques.

About Michael

I love teaching students that love music of absolutely any age! Some of my favorite students are senior citizens starting a new hobby. No matter what the age, I love to see my students faces light up when they realize that they can play music that they love so easily. I can't count the amount of times that my students have told me, "I should have started doing this a long time ago."

Jeremiah S. Kansas City, MO

Professional musician of 5+ years with formal training and studio experience. If you've been needing that extra push either with your band, or in your own personal endeavors, hit me up.

About Jeremiah

I've been a professional musician for roughly five years. Music has been my passion since I was 16 years old, and the bass guitar has been primarily my instrument of choice. Mostly self taught, my biggest struggle until college was music theory. I moved out to Kansas City in 2009 and took two years at a local pioneering music school to further my education. Since then I have been on multiple studio projects and I currently play professionally in the local music scene with several different acts. If you consider yourself a level 1 or 2 musician, need help reaching that next level with your improvisation, or just need some basic help with music theory feel free to contact TakeLessons!

Things you can learn from me:
-rhythm and timing
-various techniques and hand ...

I've been teaching for 8 years and have been playing for 15 years. We can learn together out if a book or based on your own personal learning style and I can develop a lesson plan that is just for you. My philosophy is you tell me what you want to learn and you're gonna know it.

About Raul
