Fingers or a pick? Why did you you choose electric bass over the guitar? I’ll help you understand the role of a bass guitar and show you basic techniques to those catchy fills that have been remembered for decades.

Beginner level: technique and positioning is paramount. I prefer to use fingers over a pick to begin with but it is purely your choice. I will start from one position (left hand) and work with the right amount of finger strength (both hands), timing of notes, and coordination. A plethora of popular songs can be played in just one spot on the fret!

Next, I will incorporate some simple theory and show you how to move around the fretboard comfortably by shifting or sliding and really emphasize cooperation with the right hand. You want to make those notes shine and “mean it”. You are the band’s “anchor” and you Must listen to your bandmates (even if you are just jamming to your favorite songs).

My goal is to make you feel comfortable in your role and get the ...

George was so patient with me. I knew absolutely nothing about playing guitar and I learned exactly what I needed. He gave me the confidence I needed to learn the guitar.George is an amazing guitar player and I feel fortunate to have him as my instructor. I loved my lesson and can't wait for the next.

I've been playing Bass since 2012 when my jazz banded needed me to jump in and I fell in love with it! With me teaching bass you will learn how to get different tones from your fingers, how to read chord charts, how to walk a proper bass line, different genres of bass, how to jump in with your own bands even if you don't know the song.

Andrew has taught me so much! I am really enjoying taking lessons from him. He is a great teacher and really knows a lot about guitar. He has made learning guitar a great experience for me!
Mark
I have been taking guitar lessons with Andrew, and he has been an excellent tutor. Though I started without too much experience in music or in guitar playing, Andrew demonstrated a lot of patience to ensure that I master the basics. His patience is definitely a rare trait for a musician who is as accomplished as Andrew, and in my opinion demonstrates not only his commit to music, but also his passion for sharing the joy of guitar to everyone. As a newcomer to learning this amazing instrument, I could not ask for a better instructor.

"Robert has been great to work with. He comes to our home weekly to work on bass guitar with our daughter. She has come so far in only a few months. They work on all aspect of the music- theory, finger placement, drills, and they pick some really fun music. He has let my daughter pick several songs she really likes so that she stays engaged. Meeting time been flexible which is a huge bonus! So much easier on all of us! Thanks Robert!"

"Great teacher who has many talents

I am an adult who started taking a new instrument and just after a few weeks with him, I'm already able to play much more than I ever dreamed I would. He is down to earth and easy to get along with - but pushes you to always do better. I would recommend him to anyone looking to advance their skills or start from beginning like I have."

"Investing in an instructor was the best decision I have made with regard to learning to play. Prior to this, I relied on friends and You Tube videos which doesn't even touch the surface.

I recently started studying with Ahmad and have learned so much in the short time we have worked together. He is genuinely down to earth, patient and a natural at teaching. He understands how to teach. The continuity of his instruction superceded my expectations. After each lesson, he emails a "lesson recap" detailing what we went over during class along with helpful materials to review and practice for the next session. I feel honored to work with an instructor of his caliber. If you're serious about learning, I highly recommend Ahmad. You will learn so much from him and be challenged along the way. His passion for guitar and music in general is awe-inspiring!"

I came to Joe with some basic knowledge and skills on bass, he recognized this and built on it very quickly. I feel my skilled has tripled in the short time I've taken lessons with Joe. Our lessons are never boring an he does so much more than tell me to play a set of notes, he challenges me to make my own way and improvise. I would definitely recommend him for anyone wanting to learn an instrument."
