Private Bass Guitar Teacher

I've been teaching music for 15 yrs on guitar, piano, bass, cello and bass. My students have ranged from from 5yrs to 75yrs of age. I have seen many student go on to join orchestras, bands, broadway shows or simply continued their education to a university or college. Being able to read music profeciently has given me the opportunity to teach off many method books but like to use Alfred Method, Mel Bay and Frederick Noad Method books. I teach many styles ranging from classical, jazz & blues, rock, contemporary and pop. I do stress and recommend all my students to learn how to read music and usually by our second or third lesson they will playing simple songs. I am here to help you make music!

Ray is an amazing teacher. My 11-year-old has high-functioning autism and has a great interest in learning music. I was hesitant to hire just any teacher, as many teachers don't have the patience and understanding to work with special needs kids. However, Ray has been not only patient, but he has an exceptional way of teaching my son in a way that he would understand and retain the information. Ray is creative, intuitive, and experienced. My son is very happy and enjoys the lesson every single time. Thanks Ray.

Online Bass Guitar Teacher

Bass isn't just "easy guitar." bass was actually my first instrument until I learned guitar, so I have a very special connection with it. I work on fundamentals like strong right hand technique, left hand muting, and scales. These things make any genre of music much more enjoyable to learn and perform.

Another big part of bass playing that separates it from other instruments is that an ideal bass player has a special intuition to react to other members in subtle but insanely effective ways. I work on basics of theory and harmony to bring these out, as well as encouraging listening to all kinds of music.

"Before I met Corey, I was a recovering drummer, transitioned to Bass. All self taught. Little did i know, I was a ROOT NOTE player just getting by. After Just over a year being taught by Corey, my skills have advanced so drastically. It's a great experiance being taught by the BEST. I now have bands calling me to sub or wanting me to join. If you're looking to advance your chops, or maybe you're a beginner, Corey is THE ONE for you.
Thank You Corey, I appreciate all you do."

"Ahmad is basically the best guitar teacher I have worked with. I've learned more about music from him in a year's worth of lessons than I did from five years in band. His books are both comprehensive and accessible in addressing beginning to advanced musical concepts, and he's a very patient teacher who also works well with whatever your style is. Through supplemental songs and riffs, he makes the driest aspects of musical theory and rhythm entertaining. No matter what your background is, you'll quickly become a much better musician through taking lessons with him."
