Private Bass Guitar Teacher

Bass lessons with me focus on the importance of pocket, groove, and ear training for improvisation.

We will look at famous bass players such as Parliament's, Bootsy Collins and seasoned bassists Charlie Parker, Pino Paladino and Thundercat. The lessons will be curated behind the students goals/desires if that's creating unique baselines or learning songs and the theory behind them.

friendly, good taste, knowledgeable. excited to learn!
Joseph
We are three lessons in so far with Kevin. He is working with my 15 year old on his electric guitar skills. So far, he has evaluated my son's skills, worked on bar chords, a couple of songs, and they changed the strings on the guitar. My son is enjoying the lessons and is very responsive to Kevin's teaching style. We are early in the lessons, but I am pleased with the overall progress.

As a first time piano student at age 70, I find Masa. very patient with me. He encourages me to understand music theory as well as playing. I enjoy the lessons very much, even after 15 months!

When it comes to bass guitar we are looking at it like the rhythm section along with drums. It is a very important piece to any ensemble. I will be showing you basics of the bass guitar and prepare you to head in the right direction to be able to play live one day.

Just had my first lesson with Billy and it was fantastic! He created the perfect balance of learning something enjoyable that I would be excited to go home and practice along with things that I had skipped over and knew I needed to re-visit in order to improve. I was impressed with his ability to quickly gauge my skill level and prior music knowledge so it didn’t feel mundane but challenged me just the perfect amount. Excited for our next lesson already!

Billy helped me understand what i wanted out of music and tailored the lesson to do just that...started w the basics but then let me direct whete i wanted to take my playing...easy going and made it so much fun....i would recommend him to anyone at the beginner/intermediate level, as he is adept at getting to know who u are as a player and goes at the appropriate pace....great teacher!
Gail P.
William is an awesome teacher. He is exactly what I was hoping for, very knowledgeable, low key, great personality. I am excited to be learning from him!

5 star teacher - coach and mentor - Great patience for a beginner like myself - never played before but now I’m comfortable easing into lessons - he shows you why your playing and then guides you through the lessons at your own pace - he also has the latest technologies to help - like overhead screens and sheet music that you can understand- I just signed up for another discount series of 7 lessons - I never give reviews but in this case if I can help someone who us not sure were to start - he is the perfect instructor-

"My favorite night of the week is what I call "guitar night," and it is my favorite because Ahmad is the best teacher I've had in just about anything (sorry, erstwhile college professors). The bass guitar can be intimidating, especially if you've put it off until your 30s like this gal. Ahmad makes the whole thing cake.. . I was playing a song by my second lesson. When I am occasionally downtrodden by what I feel like is the futility of a guitar in my grubby, fat hands, Ahmad, like a sensei, helps build me back up, developing my skill and pointing out what is, in fact, a burgeoning talent. It takes time. It takes practice. And I feel lucky to have chosen Ahmad as my instructor for his easy nature, graciousness, and what you can tell is a true love for the guitar that is infectious. Put it this way: I feel like there isn't anybody he can't teach. Even my significant other has remarked upon the tremendous progress I have made and the increasing confidence in my playing. It's a pleasure to be his student. I might even say an honor."

Shon has the educational AND professional background to take any musician to the next level - even if you have your degree and have been playing for years. And of course he is ideal for beginners and intermediates with a patient and systematic approach. Give him a try, you won't regret it."

"Greg has the ability to understand and know where any musician is at in their quest for knowledge about how to play their instruments with more confidence. He listens and is very intent on the students needs and not trying to overwhelm them with too much. Greg has helped me with a better understanding of how to play my bass better along with encouraging me to step out a little more to learn the whys and how comes we all wonder about music at times. He also enjoys learning from our own joirneys in music. I would recommend Greg to anyone, every time it is worth it. I have found new levels of playing the bass that i did not know that existed in me. He is just a great all around Christian man who loves to serve the Lord with those who God has put in his path."

"Tim came recommended from a friend. I had been playing guitar and bass for close to 20 years, without ever taking a single lesson. I'd been focusing on bass for the last 10 years, and decided that I wanted to take my bass playing to the next level - theory, reading music, etc.

Fast forward a year later, and I'm reading and learning music not only from sheet music, but from jazz charts - something I hadn't even imagined going in. I've gained a new appreciation for the music as a result.

Everyone that knows me well has commented on the improvement in my overall bass playing, from the wife to people who I've spent years jamming with. In short, if you're looking to expand your abilities, you can't go wrong with Tim."
