Private Bass Guitar Teacher

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.

Nathan was great! We lost internet at our house during the last 10 minutes of the lesson and Nathan was quick to solve the problem by adding another 10 minutes on to the end of our next lesson. It's nice to know that he has the flexibility and willingness to do that when things happen that are out of our control. And 2020 is often out of our control, Am I right?!

Private Bass Guitar Teacher

Bass is a foundational instrument, an important piece of the band, and it seems like good bass players are impossible to find! So I’m glad you’ve decided to learn!
I focus on scales, form, and tone for the beginning bassist and make sure the student understands not only how to play the song, but how to truly play the instrument.

About Casey

I have been teaching students of all ages for nearly twenty years and I believe that instilling a love of music is the most important part. No matter the age, I am committed to making sure all my students are having fun and enjoying what they are learning. I also take care to make sure my students

Casey does a phenomenal job of teaching our 12 year-old daughter keys. He's very patient and is able to teach her at her pace, while still challenging her to improve. Since beginning lessons with Casey, we've seen a tremendous improvement in her ability and look forward to what she can do next!
Ireland
I grew up taking piano lessons, but it wasn't until I started taking lessons with Casey that I really gained confidence in my ability to play in front of an audience. I learned songs that I really enjoyed and that I still play six years later. I also took guitar lessons from him for a while, and I loved that he encourages you to know your instrument, to do your exercises, but also to just play what you like. His passion for music is evident in everything that he does, and he's a compassionate, knowledgeable instructor. I'd recommend him to anyone.
Seth
Casey is very encouraging knowledgeable! He made lessons fun and something to look forward to. I no longer take lessons with Casey, but now I’m pressuring a music career!
