I played violin for fourteen years and picked up bass six years ago. I love any song with a good bass line. I have trained many zero experience peers to play violin as well as bass. It's the same thing just mutated a bit hah. Whether you want the full music theory, along with reading notes, or just learn how to jam, I can make that happen!
In my bass career I have played many many shows and have been in a band featured on the radio. Anyone could reach that level with some good practice and a little bit of passion. I am super passionate about music. Particularly, I love funk bass, as in my opinion that is the genre that really shows off what a good bass can really do. I specialize in jazz, funk and blues. I can help with techniques for other styles as well as for instance metal is like classical musical in many ways and classical music is my where I began.
I will keep the process of turning you into a groove master exciting and educational. You won't even feel the pain ...

Peter seems like at nice guy with a true passion for music. In a short amount of time, he was able to share a good place to start with in guitar. Thanks Peter!
George
I had a great time learning how to play guitar and am on my way to playing my favorite songs! Would highly recommend!!
Joseph
I learned everything I know about guitar from Peter, because of him I have an excellent understanding of not only how to play guitar, but how to structure and write music. This has led me to play live music and jam with musicians on a regular basis. He is an amazing guitar instructor, and can teach you whatever you want to learn — I highly recommend him.

Online Bass Guitar Teacher

Bass is my main instrument! I am genuinely passionate about your success in becoming the best BASS player you choose to be! I like to teach with repetition (wax on wax off) and prefer to present the big picture first so that every obstacle may potentially never be an obstacle for you. I take years of teaching experience and what have been topics of frustration brought to me from students in the past. I try to smooth the road and teach you, so you get the highest yield of success for your money with as little headaches as possible :)

About Greg

Hey musician! I am EXTREMELY excited to help you get to your best potential through lots of flight hours as quickly as you like! I hope you will pick me to help you avoid common setbacks in your progress. I look forward to helping you be your best on your instrument! I play fretted and fretle

Enjoyed the lesson. Greg is very interested in the "art" of teaching.
Charlie
Our first visit - Greg was patient and explained things well. He really tried to read my 12 YO son as to what he was experiencing & feeling. He was also encouraging which was great!
John
My son (electric guitar) and I (bass) love learning from Greg. He's a very clear teacher who gets his students and can work form as well as theory. Super combination and we're both farther along than I think we expected to be when we started. Highly recommended.

You are an exceptional instructor and I cannot express my thanks for your patience. The smile generated when i sit and play along with my favorite music is ridiculously huge! Thanks, Greg!

"David is fantastic. He is very smart and his formal education in music shines through in his teachings. He teaches the proper foundational techniques which may be harder to adopt initially but without it, advancement to high level playing is much more difficult and time consuming. David's direct teaching style creates very efficient sessions and maximum progression. David has the right balance of formal music education to ensure proper technique, and his personal band side project to ensure that you are enjoying the process since that's what's most important."

"Having taken guitar lessons as a kid myself I know the importance of having a patient passionate teacher Dr. Vincent possesses all those qualities and more. A qualified teacher, with a PhD, who knows his stuff but is also able to break down his vast knowledge into bits that even a middle schooler could understand. My son is excelling at his base guitar thanks to Dr. Vincent and is developing a love for his instrument I hadn't expected."
