Beginning bass lessons

About Mike

I attended the Berklee School of Music in Boston, and I have a BA in Music. I am a working pro musician, regularly playing all different kinds of gigs with different bands, as well as solo, and regular gigs on TV. I have taught music lessons, and guitar in particular, for 17 years. I play all styles, but my favorites are Rock, R&B, Country, Rockabilly, and Blues (I also enjoy playing jazz, classical, and other styles as well). My main instruments are guitar (electric and acoustic) and voice, but I play keyboards, bass, mandolin, and drums also.

Highly recommended: Amazing teacher!

Mike is a patient, supportive and incredibly talented teacher. From music theory to practical application, he's got all the answers... And he makes learning fun!

I took guitar lessons more than ten years ago and found it frustrating and I was terribly uninspired. Recently I took my old guitar out of mothballs and was determined to make some progress on the dang thing. A good friend recommended Mike and I've been taking lessons for nine months with him.

What's great about Mike is that he customizes my lessons. I'm not learning out of a book (which, I could if wanted) but I'm learning the songs that I love and learning the theory behind the chords, too. Then he keeps building on what we just learned. I go home from my hour lessons and play for another two hours because I'm so inspired.

I can't recommend Mike highly enough. He's a gem of a music instructor in the concrete jungle of Los Angeles.
Jared J. Burbank, CA

I am comfortable in a variety of styles on the bass and teach students how to not only play fun and important bass parts - but how to embellish them and create original ones as well.

About Jared

I have been happily playing music for over half of my life and it has always been the light in my day. Now it is my hope to shed that same light onto you or your child. I am a very friendly and fun teacher with a great deal of professionalism and patience, even more importantly I love teaching and music with a passion.

I have been playing an instrument since the 4th grade (cello) and, as I learned how music works, was slowly able to pick-up a greater variety instruments with an increasing degree of ease. In high school, I decided to pick-up the guitar just to "have fun and rock out". I joined a band, played in the high school orchestra, joined the high school jazz band and began to practice songwriting and cover songs. Still, it was not until after I took my first class on ...

Jared has been helping my 14-year old daughter become passionate about playing cello again. My daughter had taken years of conventional school lessons and had all but given up due to boredom and monotony. She has only had a couple of lesson from Jared but so far, so good. Even the tone in my daughter's voice regarding her cello has improved so much. She sounds excited and proud regarding playing and I am so glad!

So, Jared is a one-of-a kind person who is able to tailor his craft to you. He is observant and watches you carefully, "tuning" his coaching to exactly what you need, when you need it. He is affable and easy to learn from. As if that isn't enough, he is - hands down - an excellent musician. He is a pioneer, willing to stretch to use technology to make things work for his students. Recently we managed a Bossa duet (guitar and cello) via Skype. He is exceptional and has my highest recommendation.
Brian N. Van Nuys, CA

We'll work to find the music that inspires you and work on forming a solid technical foundation along the way.

I encourage students to learn to read simple musical notation and basic music theory, but everyone's individual goals are accommodated, as well.

About Brian

I've been making my living playing all kinds of music for over ten years. I feel that working on and creating music night in and night out with bands and artists from rock to hip-hop, pop to jazz, folk and country to disco has given me unique insights into what makes a good bassist. There's a balance to be struck between theory and instinct, as well as technique and emotion.

I tailor each lesson to each student, creating most of my own lesson materials. These can range from pages of scales and arpeggios, to full transcriptions and even audio recordings of practice tracks. I like technology and feel it can be a valuable part of the learning experience. But generally, I teach by having students learn songs and basslines, then illustrate musical ideas and principles by ...

Slap-a-da-bass man? Pic? 5 string?

I have played guitar since 1992, when I started taking lessons in high school. I have studied guitar and guitar theory for 4 years at college and have nationally toured as a guitarist. Guitar is my best instrument and I have taught countless students all types of guitar music.

About Jason

I've been playing music for over 20 years. I've been teaching for over 10 years. My main instrument is guitar but I also play and teach piano, drums, uke and bass. I play with two acts in the area: Nataly Lola (acoustic covers) and We Were Superheroes (original rock). I am constantly listening to new alternative music (98.7 and AltNation) as well as learning the classics for the cover band. I never have a bias for a song and am always surprised when the pop song on the radio is actually quite clever when broken down to its roots. As a teacher I cater to the student. I've taught Old Country, Jazz Theory, New Metal, Russian Ska (yup!) and anything else that you want to learn.

Andrea B. North Hollywood, CA

I can teach you how to play with fingers and pick, walking bass Lines for blues or jazz, popular rock and pop songs.

About Andrea

I come from Italy, but have been living in the US for the past twelve years. I have achieved two degrees (production & performance) cum laude at the prestigious Berklee College Of Music in Massachusetts and have ever since worked as a guitarist and producer. I have been teaching for over ten years privately and in schools. I have helped students of all levels from beginners to fellow professionals.
My philosophy is to make the learning process as enjoyable as possible and at the same time make sure the student keeps marking solid progress towards their goals. I believe to achieve that as many of my students told me I had helped them not just in the subject, but in their overall confidence, concentration skills and the quality of their study or practice.

Andrea is a very good guitar teacher, I can guarantee. While he was in Italy this summer, I had the chance to take a few lessons from him. I am a beginner, so we focused on rather simple things, but what I can say without a doubt is that his approach to teaching is very useful and at the same time funny. I had taken some lessons with other teachers before, but they were somehow dull and left me a sensation of "incompleteness" like I hadn't been able to fully comprehend what was taught to me. This was not the case. Plus, he's Italian, so could you ask for more than a good lesson AND pasta?

Electric bass is my specialty! I have years of playing experience in professional situations including studio work and international touring. I can teach students how pros do things in the real world, as well as what to expect in these situations! I also specialize in beginner/intermediate reading and all techniques involved with playing bass.

About Kurt

I hold a bachelor's degree in electric bass performance from Musicians Institute in Hollywood. I also have national as well as international touring experience playing for a platinum selling artist with a major label. I also worked at MI as a teachers assistant helping to run performance based classes, as well as helping students improve their chart writing and song writing skills. I teach real world principles in electric bass playing, and am able to teach students that only want to play for fun, or those who seek professional work in the industry.
