For over 10 years Jan has helped bass students attain proficiency on the instrument by developing their sense of time, their knowledge of scales and chords so that they can effectively write a bass line in a band situation, and their general musicianship and music theory. A good mixture between learning songs and specific exercises geared to the student's needs, combined with frequent writing and recording opportunities, will fuel your inspiration to want to practice and progress on the bass guitar.
Learning an instrument in a music recording studio environment has many advantages and is a lot more fun, creative and rewarding. From your teacher jumping on different instruments for you to develop your independence and timing as a player and recording prepared projects you've been working on, to playing at a higher volume to get to know your gear's real sound, the rocking' memories you'll walk away with will fuel your inspiration to practice and improve fast. My focus is to help you achieve your goals on your instrument. With each individual student, I offer exercises, songs and techniques to practice that will help you to immediately begin seeing positive results. I believe that anyone can play an instrument and take their next step in music. It makes a big difference if you
Can teach all genres and styles.
