We purchased a 12-lesson package for my daughter as a Christmas Gift. My daughter is 14 years old, and after completing these lessons her love for music has grown. She had only taken a beginner's level course in piano and guitar prior to working with Mauricio. My daughter looked forward to every lesson, and would come home to keep practicing and improving her skills. We plan to work with Mauricio again in the near future and would highly recommend him!
Maria
3rd lesson so far, and my daughter has learned so much!! She enjoys her classes with Mauricio and looks forward to each class. Mauricio has a small home studio with various musical instruments. His experience and skill in teaching music is quite apparent and much appreciated!

"Not being a complete beginner, I sought David's instruction to improve my skill set. I really enjoyed the way David breaks down complicated topics into manageable components that I can drill in between lessons. I was mostly a metal head but through exploration, David also opened me up to the idea of Jazz and improvisation. As a bonus, we had some really good functional programming conversations as well. He is also a talented Scala engineer."

He learned so much and has come so far! I'm so appreciative of the jamming they did together and the way Mr. Campbell treated my son and our family with friendly respect. He is wonderful with kids and marvelous with music."

"Dustin Newbold began teaching my son guitar lessons when my son was 10 years old and continued for the past 6 years. He taught him to play the electric guitar, the acoustic and then the bass guitar. Dustin taught him tabs, chords and reading music. He became affluent in each of them.

My daughter began taking violin lessons with Dustin and then took trumpet lessons. She progressed so much in such a short amount of time.

Dustin has a tremendous love for music and is such a talented musician. His love for music is apparent and quickly spread to both of my children. He chooses music that they like to play and that keeps their interest and causes them to practice without prompting. I have always been amazed at how quickly they advanced with their talent and knowledge and how much they enjoyed going to their lessons. My only regret is that he moved away from our area. I would highly recommend Dustin Newbold to anyone of any age seeking to begin learning a musical instrument or advancing in their own personal knowledge."

Are you ready to do more than play air guitar along with your favorite songs? If so, bass guitar lessons in Los Angeles can get you one step closer to a real stage. Studies show that music lessons are beneficial to the brain, and according to many students—playing an instrument is also good for the soul.

The Benefits of Taking Bass Lessons in Los Angeles

This vibrant community of four million residents has fueled out a number of famous bass guitarists over the years. While one of the better known greats is Greg T.

Those aspiring to gain notoriety amid the LA music scene and “go professional” should definitely consider taking bass lessons in Los Angeles. Professional lessons can jump-start the learning process and help you network with other local musicians. However, many students enroll in classes simply to have another hobby to enjoy.

Another benefit of being in this spectacular city of entertainment is that there’s no shortage of exceptional bass teachers in Los Angeles, in addition to ample places to practice your skills. You’ll find outdoor jam sessions both planned and impromptu at Pershing Square Park and Griffith Park.

Practicing Bass Guitar in Los Angeles

Before investing a lot of time and money into lessons or a brand new instrument, do a bit of research on the bass guitar. It’s important to understand the various types of basses, their materials, and what price range to expect. Online searches will give you a number of free resources, as well as the local Los Angeles Central Library.

When you’re ready, check out the Amp Shop Bass Exchange for great deals on new and used equipment. All in One Guitar is another popular choice for new musicians, and the acclaimed Los Angeles Bass Works is geared more toward the pros. (Note: This store sees customers by appointment only!)

Practicing bass guitar in Los Angeles is possible every night of the week, as there are jam sessions and social gatherings always going on around town. For example, the Echo Park DTLA Musician Artist Exchange is an ideal place to meet with other musicians.
