Alfred has an infectious enthusiasm for the bass guitar that carries over in his lessons. I wanted to learn the slap and pop techniques of my favorite bass players including Marcus Miller and others. Alfred is a skilled percussive bass player who is fluent in these techniques. He is a patient teacher who will introduce new techniques and concepts at your own pace, whether you are a beginner or more advanced player. The lessons always go over the time allotment and we often have to force ourselves to “call it a night” and put down our bass guitars. The bottom line is that I’m having fun and making good progress. Online lessons have their place, but you don’t get the feedback and accountability that comes from taking in-person lessons. I can highly recommend Alfred to anyone who is serious about learning how to properly play bass guitar.

Alfred is a phenomenal teacher. There are a lot of wonderful musicians that are expert at their crafts but does not have the expertise of teaching it to others. Alfred not only he is a wonderful bass player but his teaching skills is amazing. I've been taking leasing for about a month and a half and it is amazing the amount of things I've learned. Furthermore, I signed up for 30 minutes lessons, I can't recall once so far where our lessons only last 30 minutes. we almost always go over an hour. This is what I call true passion for music. I couldn't ask for a better teacher. I've enjoyed every lessons and can't wait till the next one. With Alfred help, I know i'll reach my goals in no time.

excellent instructor and a wonderful person

I have been taking music lessons with Daniel since April of 2013 and it has been a great learning experience.

I had no musical background and I started learning Saxophone with Daniel and 7 months later, I am able to play popular songs that he chooses to fit best for enhancing learning curve. He does a great job with reinforcing correct habits from the very beginning and has been very encouraging and has highlighted improvement as we go from class to class. As music learning can be frustratingly slow, the feedback and reassurance he provides definitely helps in keep going back for more.

I wanted to learn guitar and piano with him as well, he encouraged to learn only Piano (for enhancing learning curve for musical theory concepts) and hold guitar for later. Which speaks about how he is genuinely concerned about your learning of music with sound reasoning. So now I take guitar and Piano lessons with him. He is very patient, polite and professional. He is great with students of all ages and easily modifies teaching style as per student needs.

Besides all that he is a great person to talk to. Numerous times we have had great discussions about things outside music.

I would highly recommend Daniel for music lessons to everyone.

Christopher is a Great Teacher.

I am so glad I found him to be my Grandsons violin teacher. Kevin is 8 yrs. old and never played an instrument before. Christopher really knows how to relate to him on his own level. He makes learning easy and fun. Kevin looks forward to his weekly lesson and has learned so much already.

Our son looks forward to lessons with Steve!

Steve is a great drum teacher! He has been working with my son for almost a year. He is very patient and has a nice sense of humor (which is necessary when training kids).

He conducts a review with my son at the start of each session and offers words of encouragement throughout. After the lesson is over, Steve always confers with me and objectively reviews the lesson's achievements, parts to work on, and goals for next week. Our family recommends him for young and adult students!

One of the best teachers around!

I have known Steve for many years as a fellow drummer and educator. We come from the same background as far as schooling and theory's on how to teach students. I have subbed for him several times and have always been impressed with the knowledge and skill level of even students that have been with him for a short time. I would highly recommend him to anyone thinking about starting or advancing their skills!

Dan is very knowledgeable and has an extensive background in music. My 10 yr. old son looks forward to his weekly piano lessons and mentions how much he appreciates the teachers patience and kindness. Dan does an excellent job of teaching the material while remaining friendly and fun! He constantly provides feedback and encouragement and does a great job of instilling enthusiasm for learning music while adapting to my son's skill level and needs. I also love that he is punctual! We would definitely recommend Dan as a music teacher to adults and kids alike.
Michael C. Skokie, IL

I have 30 years experience playing and teaching bass guitar and I can teach from the very first notes and riffs all the way up to advanced improvisation, recording and performing techniques. I teach full pedagogy and theory and I teach score or tab reading, depending on students preference. All lessons are based around equal parts technical instruction, theory explanation and actual playing time, just to make sure it stays fun!

About Michael

Hi there!

I am a bass, guitar and piano player with 30 years of experience to offer my students. I graduated from Duquesne University in 1992 with a Bach. of music performance, jazz emphasis. I have toured, recorded and given lessons all over the world. Check out my videos for some examples of what I do.

My passion as a teacher is to help you quickly learn to play and enjoy music. I tailor my lessons to suit your specific needs, from beginners to more advanced students. Whether you are a beginner who wants a solid foundation, a busy adult who just wants to learn enough to play with friends, or an advanced player who wants to more fully develop your improvisational skills, I develop an approach that will bring clear results.

I've been playing for 30+ years but really just memorized tab. So I could play mechanically - get my fingers to the right place - but never understood how it fit together. After 3 lessons I am understanding chord structure and "why" the music sounds good. Mike also plays along with me...he'll play chords while he challenges me to muddle through leads (one of the things I want to learn) and vice versa...after playing on my own for so many years it's the first time I've actually ever created music with someone else - it's a great feeling. Thanks Mike - I look forward to learning more and would recommend you highly.

Michael's enthusiasm is clear and he has been a joy to work with. He always goes above and beyond to ensure that my daughter is learning songs that she loves, and even stayed late a few times to help her adjust her guitar.
He's always happy to focus on the things that are important to her, and is very patient and encouraging. I'm so glad we found someone who is as passionate about guitar as my daughter is!
