Bass guitar is one of the most underrated roles in music. Many musicians, even bass players, keep bass too simplified by not exploring what it has to offer. I'm looking for that student who is a true beginner and has no identity in music yet or maybe the student who rocks out with his/her band and just wants a new edge. I teach bass players theory, how to play tight pocket grooves, and how to fly all over the fretboard to enjoy the simple but provocative instrument. I will teach you how to be the perfect compliment to your band, play solo and fill up space, as well as be the lead instrument if desired.

About Jeremiah
Hello, My name is Jeremiah and I'm excited to be your teacher. Music has been in my blood since birth. I come from a family of singers and performers. I started my musical journey as boy singing in choirs. In middle school I picked up the saxophone, in high school I started guitar, and I've been playing the keyboard all along the way. At this time I perform in churches, conventions, coffee shops and public events using my voice, guitar and keyboard. Music is my passion and teaching music is the way I can contribute to this generation.

What I can offer you is the ability to play or sing any song you want within a few short lessons and all popular music in a little as six weeks. Even though teaching music is what I do I love to connect with people in general. There are principles in music that can be used in life : diligence, self-worth
, pride, and focus are just a few. I'm looking forward to meeting you and helping you meet your goals. Thanks for stopping by!!!

*** Lesson Details ***
I'm a very easy going person. I like to wear a smile and have fun. With that being said, you can expect me to politely influence a student to go the extra mile. I do make things clear when it comes to practicing and effort but you'll be happy finding out how easy that can be. In 6 weeks you can expect a student to be playing full songs in different keys and vocalists to become more comfortable with the vocal instrument they were born with. Thereafter, is entirely up to what a student wants to do with their talent. Within 3 to 6 months a student should be comfortable playing or singing in front of a family crowd or even publicly.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I have keyboards, guitars, basses, plenty of chairs, rooms, whiteboards and amps. Bring a notebook and mobile device.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Instrument (guitar or keyboard) and amplifier (if electric). Writing paper.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in worship music, gospel, alternative rock, pop, fusion, r&b, motown, neo-soul and jazz. Using the circle of 5ths as well as the number system I've been able to teach students how to play any song they want in any key on their own.

I just finished a series of online upright bass lessons with Dr. Norman. It's wonderful to have a lesson without toting the bass around town. Dr. Norman is impressive in skill and knowledge. There was nothing musically he didn't know, couldn't explain, or demonstrate on the bass. He has a keyboard at hand to play chords or emphasize a particular key, and he is proficient on that too. Dr. Norman is A++.

I focus on musicality when I teach any instrument. With the bass, that means keeping great rhythm, playing melodic bass lines that compliment the piece, and playing with careful expressiveness.

We learn from the greats (Beatles, Police, Radiohead, etc) and learn to create and express from there.

About Colin
I'm an avid music fan familiar with rock (indie rock, classic rock, alternative), pop, funk, disco, and classical genres. Music has been my "thing" since the day I was born and I love connecting with people through their favorite music.

My lessons focus on empowering each student with the skills to play what they want to play.

If you want to have a good time playing great music, you've come to the right teacher!

*** Lesson Details ***
You and I work on simple exercises that help get you to the next level in your performance and then apply the principle taught to a piece of music you are familiar with. It's a great method that gets you playing what you want to play at the level you want to play it at.

*** Studio Equipment ***
All of the instruments that I teach (guitar, bass, upright bass) as well as recording gear (Pro Tools
, mics, synths, etc.)

*** Travel Equipment ***
Any instrument that I teach.

*** Specialties ***
Classical Upright Bass and Music Production (mixing, mastering, Pro Tools recording, beat sequencing)

I have been playing, teaching, and recording bass guitar for about 12 years now. I started out teaching jazz bass...and now play all forms of music with it.

About Joe
I absolutely love teaching music! After over 20 years of teaching, performing, writing, and recording in all styles/genres, it continues to be a great adventure. It is a joy to pass this on to others...especially seeing my students that never touched the instrument going on to be very proficient players.

I take teaching seriously, but definitely try to make it enjoyable for the student. I studied classical guitar in college, but was playing everything from Van Halen to Jazz to Country & Blues before that. Currently, I'd consider myself a flat out musical mutt...enjoying anything and everything. The love of guitar has also expanded to a multitude of instruments that I record, gig, & teach with.

I can teach you all the funnest bass riffs and show you how to make your own bass lines and jam in several styles. I can also show you how to use your ear so you can jam along to whatever music you hear!

About Mike
I've studied piano and other instruments for 30 years, have been teaching music for 20, and have been a full time professional musician and music teacher for 11 years.

As a musician who was raised on classical piano but has also spent his life playing in bands, jamming, and composing in several genres, I believe that a well-rounded musical education is not only practical, but that it brings out the most enjoyment in music.

I also believe in teaching students whatever they love whether it's classical, rock, pop, jazz, world music, or a mix of everything! The more they love it, the more they will practice, and in turn the more they will love how they have improved - a circle of awesomeness!

As a professional musician, I play over 130 shows a year throughout North America as lead singer-guitarist for Celtic Rock group The Whiskeydicks, a
s the touring pianist for classical crossover group Vivace, as a solo singer-guitarist-pianist, and as the lead singer-guitarist-pianist-composer for my own symphonic-rock-fusion group, The Living. I've also toured extensively in Europe as keyboardist and backing vocalist for singer-songwriter Melanie Dekker.

My compositions have been performed by the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra, The Plastic Acid Orchestra, Turning Point Ensemble, Ad Mare Wind Quintet, Vivace, The Living, The Whiskeydicks and cellist-singer-songwriter Cris Derksen.

I have a B.Mus in Piano and Music Composition from The University of British Columbia. I'm an IVA Certified Level I Voice Instructor and have studied Vocals with John Henny, Jeffrey Skouson, Guy Babusek, and Spencer Welch; piano with Terence Dawson, David Vandereyk, and Ross Taggart; composition with Dorothy Chang, Keith Hamel, and Armanini; drums with Jay Deachman and Morgan Childs; bass with David Spidel; and accordion with Jelena Milojevic.

I've just moved to LA from Vancouver where I had about 40 students, so this is the time to sign up as I have room for new students for the first time in years!

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 music education. There are many things I wish I would've been taught when I was younger that would have accelerated my growth, and I love using that knowledge to accelerate my student's growth. I teach tonal harmony (as you'd learn in music school), focus on groove and rhythm (which is commonly neglected in music school), and an awareness of new technology (which was ignored when I was in music school). I believe because no matter which direction you are coming from, you will come to this intersection making music in this era.

He had a lot of ideas and suggestions that were really helpful in trying to create a unique composing style. He's a trained musician, and it shows when he helps me with music theory and exposing me to lots of different styles of music.

The Bass is probably my second favorite instrument to play, you really can control the groove and the song along with the drums. Lessons include technique, scales and patterns, holding down the groove, forming the song around you, playing more than the root note, and playing the song.

About Eric
MUSIC!
I think music is the most beautiful thing in the world, so lets take time to learn and play music together.
I have been playing the drums for over sixteen years, and been in over fifteen bands in the course of that time. I have a degree in Music from the Berklee College of Music were I studied music theory and focused on Music Production and Engineering. I have been playing Piano, Bass, and Guitar for about ten years in addition to the drums, and have been recorded in sessions on each. I have a deep passion for synthesizers and electronic music, so lets make some bleeps and bloops together.

I am extremely kind, friendly, and funny so lessons with me are very relaxed and have an easy to learn environment. However I am very passionate about teaching to fit student needs; so if a student likes deadlines and homework, if that is w
hat will help them learn the best, then that is how I will teach.
Lets make some sweet music together!!
