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 ...

Hello Students,
I have been playing most of my life. I started playing professionally at 17, playing with a number of professional bands playing all over Michigan. I have been teaching drum students since the age of 19, teaching well over 500 students to date.

Teaching students has been one of my passions with music. I hope to motivate my students to learn to play and love the drums as much as I do.

I work with each student on an individual basis to help them learn and understand drumming technique using books and techniques that will help to develop instinctive skills and ear technique.

I work with snare drum / rudimental technique with all my students and drum set technique, as most students want to learn how to play a drum set. Many of my students are in school band learning snare drum and percussion technique. Basic snare drum technique is important for any student to master and understand to learn to apply to snare drum and drum set technique.

Building a solid

My 1-on-1 artist business coaching starts with mapping out goals for your dreams, then breaking everything down into manageable chunks based on your unique strengths and skill set, and helping you stay accountable along the way, without any guilt or shaming.

I will equip you with the tools needed to get exposure and influence in your industry: branding, digital marketing, public relations, competitive benchmarking, social media marketing, distribution, pitching, booking, promotion, and much more.

These tools are valuable for artists, but they also apply if you’re a professional looking to become a more sought-after expert, or an online business owner looking to get more traffic.

Albert is willing to go the extra mile to structure a lesson plan that met my specific exam goals. He is very knowledgeable and accommodating.
Matt
Albert did a great job working with my high school son. Despite his quiet demeanor, after the very first lesson, he mapped the most efficient plan to get my son help, asking questions that were straight to the point. Ever since, he won’t allow my son to digress from that path set, and it has seen phenomenal results!

We all love the gut kicking bass that we can't help but have involuntary movement when we hear it done right. I've played bass for over 30 years in the studio and touring all over the US, Mexico, and Central America. I can teach you how to play with seemingly effortless technique, how to create unforgettable bass lines, how to improvise solos, how to slap, tap, 2 hand tap technique, and bring thunderous energy into your playing venues! I look forward to speaking with you soon

Shon is very accommodating to helping you learn at your own pace. He is very patient, encouraging and insightful. Shon is very relaxed which helps me feel comfortable and not feel pressured. He gives reassurance all the time that the "growing pains" of learning guitar are normal things everyone fights through. I would highly recommend him.

"great teacher for beginner to advanced

Paul really got me into playing the guitar. I was disinterested when I first started but he encouraged me to stick with it and to keep practicing. When i got over being a beginner, we got more advanced and learned theory and I took lessons with him until I went away for college where I ended up majoring in music. I highly recommend Paul, even if you're just looking to play some songs and have fun!"
