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 ...

With thirty-five years experience as a pro singer/stage director and vocal coach, I bring extensive international experience to my lessons. Having worked with singers at all levels of development, I will introduce you to vocal technique structured for where you are right now. I coach in multiple genres: Jazz -- determining keys, understanding charts and leadsheets, Broadway -- belt, mix and legit, Blues, and for classical singers, multiple languages. I work extensively with actors on both speaking and singing voice and with voice-over and media voices.

As a stage director, I offer stage and performance etiquette, interpretation and how to prepare for auditions and recording sessions. If you are a community singer and just getting started, I love teaching the basics and will help you build the confidence you need!

Lessons are in a double studio with high ceilings, great acoustics and both a grand piano and electronic.

My daughter said she felt very comfortable with Mrs. Diane and she can't wait for her next lesson.
Sonja
It is a pleasure to provide a recommendation for Diane McNaron and her studio. My daughter has been taking private lessons for more than three years and we have been exceptionally pleased with the results. Ms. McNaron’s extensive background and experience in a wide variety of musical genres allows her to customize lessons around the student’s vocal strengths and interests rather than force a cookie cutter approach. Ms. McNaron has nurtured her talent in a positive, professional manner and I highly recommend her for those looking to improve, learn, or simply polish their current vocal skill set. You will not be disappointed.

Love Claire! I am a dancer by profession but was looking to learn to sing on the side. Claire has been wonderful! I have really enjoyed all of my lessons with her & am looking forward to continuing with singing! I would highly recommend. :)

Claire's the best! She's always upbeat and encouraging. She's great at explaining things and is super patient with a beginner like myself. You couldn't ask for a better teacher. Our sessions are always so fun and I'm sad when they end.

My daughter had her first lesson this evening. Senobia is fantastic and my daughter really enjoyed her session. We will continue to use her. She gets to know what your goals are and really works to get you there.
Hands down, fantastic!

Senobia was knowledgeable and I appreciated her patience with my daughter as this was her first EVER vocal lesson. While my daughter was nervous, Senobia’s professional demeanor allowed my daughter to feel confident. She can’t wait for lesson 2.

About Carolyn

Coming from a large extended family in Hawaii, I was surrounded by luau music, kachi-kachi dancing, Japanese bon dances, handsome local guys singing and playing their guitars and my aunties strumming their ukes and singing old songs. I reveled in walking alone in Nature or playing piano and singing

Carolyn is phenomenal! I have 3 kids, one of them special needs, and she was able to take the info I provided about each of them, create a specialized experience for each of them, and meet them where they were at. All this after their FIRST LESSON. I was way impressed and can't wait to see how they develop under her direction!

"We are so lucky to have found Jerry. He is professional, patient and makes my 12 year old's trumpet lessons enjoyable yet always challenging. Wit in just a few weeks of working with Jerry, my sons grades in band have gone up. Even after my son broke his arm playing sports, Jerry manages to find effective ways to keep him involved and progressing with the trumpet."

"Mr. Mark is an amazing teacher who is very accommodating and so relaxed when he teaches that won't make a student be intimidated at all. I can see that my daughter is very comfortable with him during the lessons especially with sharing some ideas and thoughts for her improvement in playing her violin. After just a few sessions, my daughter already told me that she became more confident in playing with the orchestra in school. She said that Mr. Mark knows what he is talking about. 😊👍"

"Scott taught me introductory drums. Scott is warm, funny, and adaptable - he made learning fun and easy for me. I didn't feel dumb when I made mistakes, in no small part because Scott was very encouraging and pointed out the things I was doing well!

Another reason to take lessons with Scott - he's incredibly talented and plays multiple instruments. For example, I wanted to practice playing drums in a "band" setting, so Scott grabbed an electric bass and we started jamming.

10/10 would recommend, especially if you like laughing a lot while you learn a new skill!"

8-Year-Old Girl is Gnarliest Guitar Shredder Ever

I'm willing to bet that "playing like a girl" will stop being an insult within this little lady's lifetime! At just 8 years old, Lisa-X is able to play rapid fire metal solos that will melt your face off and blow your mind. She's smaller than her guitar, but she sure knows how to make it sound big and mighty. Plus, the sweet grin she gives the camera as she's bending a note around 1:46? Priceless! Child prodigies like Lisa are absolutely amazing, but there's really no wrong age to sta …
