Hi! My name is Paul and I'd love to share the joy of playing the guitar with you! I have been a professional musician and teacher for over 20 years. I know much about playing the guitar and being an artist. I am passionate about music, which is why lessons with me are so fun. I know how to customize a program for the motivated student that will bring out the potential of the student at all levels. I will give the student a complete and practical program for advancement and help he or she discover their own talents at a pace that works for them. I even on occasion will conduct blues jams and other challenges such as recording and how to do a You Tube video production that will give the student a chance to use their developing skills by themselves and with others. Here is feedback ...
Beginning bass lessons
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.

I focus on a comprehensive approach, incorporating each student's natural abilities as well as musical interests - whether you want to learn how to play your favorite songs, learn all the skills to play with ...
I have been playing the bass ever since my father bought me a cheap fender P-Bass at 13 (I'm happy to report I still have it). During my lessons, I love to focus on the songs you want to learn. We will learn how to read music and how to practice properly. I perform frequently as a bass player, largely for rock bands, cabaret showcases, and jazz groups. I love to teach a variety of genres, to increase every players palate.
Hello! My name is Peter. When I was a toddler, I would sit on my dad's lap as he played piano, fascinated by the sound he created. I knew then that I wanted to become a musician. I began to study the guitar, bass, and drums relentlessly, recording my own little demos on an ADAT recorder. Since then, music has allowed me the chance to travel the US, both as a performer and a recording artist/engineer. I began teaching guitar just after graduating from the Evergreen State College in 2006. Since then, I have taught ever age imaginable and have even taught full classrooms of 20+ students. Now, here in beautiful Los Angeles, I am excited to meet new students and share in the discovery of music.
I am new to TakeLessons, but I have a few quotes from the parents of past ...
I can teach beginning bass lesssons. Fretboard knowledge, tuning, various techniques and following chord progressions as well as melodic concepts and unique ideas to give your playing an edge.
I've taught students of all ages everything from popular songs to music theory, technique, all aspects of performing and bands, gear and equipment knowledge and much more.
I approach every student differently and give them goals to reach that will help them in moving forward with their playing and musical knowledge. I make the lessons as enjoyable as possible, mixing taking the music seriously which is essential with a great sense of humor that is also essential. Playing music is supposed to be fun! I will help you reach your goals and have the best time doing so.
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.
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.
I can teach you how to play with fingers and pick, walking bass Lines for blues or jazz, popular rock and pop songs.
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.

"My daughter's wedding was weeks away and I had never been able to dance a step. With Jenny's help, I came further than ever before in such short time in any subject."
