Private Bass Guitar Teacher

I've been a musician all of my life. I have a music education degree and have performed in professional ensembles. I've played bass guitar in a funk rock band, covering many Red Hot Chili Peppers songs, as well as others from the 90's.

I currently focus my energy on the acoustic guitar, however I feel very comfortable playing and teaching introductory and intermediate skills on the bass, including techniques in finger picking and slap bass techniques.

Curriculum will include technique, styles discussion, songs, and performance.

About Joshua

I am a tutor who earned a music teaching degree, substitute taught, and didn't become a school teacher. I held professional tech retail jobs and am supplementing my life with my passion - education. Whatever subject or instrument I teach, I celebrate students' successes; and I enjoy helping learn

It help him understand about the instrument and the sound when he play. He do have a sense of humor which help my son to have fun and be more comfortable. He also teaches other instruments, too. Highly recommended to everyone!!!!

Had a really fun first lesson with Zelda! She provided a really clear structure to the session and I liked the pace. Very positive and upbeat energy, excited to continue <3
Shashi S.
Zelda is very encouraging instructor. I could see lot of improvement in myself. Thanks to her, I have not only improve my accent, but also helped me to gain confidence to go out and speak with Native speaker .
Randy D.
My sessions have been nothing but fun! I started playing the ukulele to relieve stress and classes with Zelda has made that possible. Going over chords, correct finger positioning, tempo, and playing popular songs has been exciting and I don't feel pressured. Each lesson is created to match my pace and gradually becomes more difficult as I improve. But, her instruction allows me to pick up the new skills with ease. Since taking classes, I feel I finally have a outlet to relieve stress from work/family through the rhythmic sounds of my ukulele. I would highly recommend this instructor for novice or veteran music lovers.

About Rachel

I started my musical path in a Ballet Studio. I fell in love with the crackle of the vinyl record playing as I learned to listen and dance with the rhythm. I started playing the guitar when I was in elementary and took classical lessons until I was a teenager. I really enjoy the art of practice

Private Bass Guitar Teacher

My bass experience began later than my guitar experience, but I pursued it just as fervently! Over the last 13 years or so of playing I have played bass in many projects. From alternative, to metal, to folk, to indie-rock. I've been a guest studio bass player on a good number of tracks and still continue to play and teach today. I play bass (in addition to other instruments) almost nightly at the a dueling piano club I regularly play for.

Most bass teachers that also play guitar are really just guitar players that can play their way around a bass on a basic level. However, there is much more to a bass than just playing what a guitar player or other musician might be playing!

The bass is a unique and colorful instrument in its own right. It shares some things in common with a guitar, but has a wide range of its own qualities and abilities. The bass plays a PIVOTAL role in almost all music. I would argue that it is even MORE crucial than many other instruments like guitar or ...

Private Bass Guitar Teacher

I knew I wanted to play bass when I was 12 and heard the bassline for Bob Marley's Stir It Up. I've been playing ever since then. The primary attraction to bass for me is the groove, and that's what I like to emphasize (which I think is severely neglected in standard music education). I have studied theory and composition extensively and like to tie those elements in and show where the bass fits into any situation harmonically and rhythmically. Most importantly teaching is a fun and rewarding experience for me and my students. I love to teach and get my bass students grooving!

About Kellen

I believe this is a great time to be a musician. I have come of age as a musician in a time when music making and the music industry have shifted dramatically. There are many positives in this shift, with new oppurtinites opening up for musicians. I also see these changes not being addressed in m

Kellen has been a fantastic and knowledgeable bass teacher. I came into this with no background in music whatsoever but his teaching process is very simple and easy to grasp. He got a feel for what I did and didn’t know within 15 minutes on the first day & jumped right into improving the relevant skills I needed to learn next. Every lesson I learn something completely new and there is no wasted time. If you want to be pushed to become a better bass player in a very easygoing and welcoming environment, Kellen is the teacher for you.
Fred Z.
Kellen is a gifted instructor. As an adult learner I wasn't sure what to expect, but I was impressed with his structured and thoughtful approach to creating an excellent foundation and building skills.

Great teacher! Kellen has made me really excited about the guitar again.

Private Bass Guitar Teacher

"For every good bassist, there's a dozen great guitarists." Someone said this to me when I was a young wannabe rocker, I have found it to be true. The bass is the part of the song that everyone really hears. If lead guitar is the icing, bass guitar is the cake. Learn how chords work, and how to map them easily, and let your creativity take over from there.

overall good teacher

I've been taking lessons from Scotty for over a year and have learned a lot about theory, form, and style. Had taken lessons from other instructors and felt that I should had been further along after 1 year. One hour lesson time is perfect for me and I always leave wishing I had more time.

Great Teacher

Great teacher takes time to cover theory of music, and does hour lessons unlike most teachers in town who do 30min lessons. Have taken lessons from other teachers in the past, and all they do is teach you songs without explaining the reasoning behind it. Have learned more in the last few months then I’ve learn in years with other teachers.

"I am absolutely amazed how laughter, insight and fun amplifies the learning experience. Corey helped me start, begin and continue on this journey to become the musician that I want to be. Corey listens to his students and in turn teaches us to really listen.
Corey has a wealth of knowledge and experience in making and teaching the art of music. He is always encouraging his students to become more than they perceive themselves to be.
16+ years ago I went 'live' for the first time with Corey's encouragement.
I was absolutely petrified.
I was convinced that it was possible to urinate down both pant legs simultaneously. Clearly I was mistaken.
That first introduction to musical performance by Corey has lead to so much in my life.
Under Corey's instruction I have played many styles of music. This has always been done in an encouraging, empowering, engaging and fun environment.
Please look at the first sentence of this review.
His teaching methods lead to positive results.
Become the musician that you wish to be."

"I have been studying bass playing techniques and music theory with Rob for several months now. Short story: he's great.

Rob's lesson format is pretty open. If you have specific questions/goals, Rob makes sure that they are addressed. He's been able to give me some great information on various techniques and styles, and I've picked up a good bit of general practical bass knowledge this way.

Rob is VERY knowledgeable about music theory, and its evolution over the centuries. That being said, discussions on music theory are always made relevant to bass playing. This makes learning the theory and patterns very practical, and for me, more approachable.

Thanks Rob!"

"Greg is an amazing person and instructor. Our son has been practicing, consistently, with him for a couple of years, and he loves playing more and more every week. Our son's first lesson with Greg was when he was around 3 years old. It was lots of fun. Then, when our son showed interest in really getting into playing, we came back to Greg. Our son's excitement about practicing with and studying under Greg appears to us to come from the joy in playing and variety of music that Greg brings in every session. We are constantly impressed at how much our son learns and enjoys the learning and enjoys having Greg as the instructor."

What is an Acoustic Bass Guitar? A Look at the Instrument 

If you’ve ever seen or heard an MTV Unplugged concert, you’ve probably seen and heard an acoustic bass guitar. This is a hollow body instrument that is the size of an acoustic guitar, but has the sound of a bass. In the 1980s and 1990s, rock bands would perform their electric guitar songs with acoustic guitars, and bassists could be heard or seen playing these instruments that are not too common in the world of music.  But if they made it all the way to the MTV screens for decades, why h …
