Award-winning guitarist Chris S., hails from Winnipeg, Canada. Coming from a musical family, Chris started playing music at an early age. His first professional band was playing old time fiddle music with his dad, Albin, an accomplished violinist.

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.

PPP - Professional, Patient, Precise (Exceptionally Outstanding)

For such a young person Nanette is at the very top of her game and she loves her profession. That love is felt and gives me much confidence in my ability to improve and one day perform a rock song.

She is very precise in explaining each note, how to arch your fingers and move between notes.

Take Lessons is very fortunate to have Nanette!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

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 ...

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?
Kurt B. Van Nuys, CA

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.
