Private Upright Bass Teacher

Upright Bass is my main instrument. It's what I love and I want to share that love with anyone who wants to play the bass. The lessons are your time as a student. I am here for you and I am here to guide you on the path to success. What I think is really important is always being goal oriented. We will take what you want to do with the bass and plan how we will get there using technique exercises, solo pieces, and fun stuff you choose to learn.

About Michael

I am a professional freelance upright bassist in the Philadelphia Metro Area. I came to the Classical Bass when I was 17 and fell in love with it! In my experience, I have learned that there are two very important things: Musicality and Flexibility. The music always comes first! It's what I do

The main focus is on technique (bowing, fingerings) while covering any classical repertoire. I can also cover jazz, rock/pop if the student wishes.

Nathan was great! We lost internet at our house during the last 10 minutes of the lesson and Nathan was quick to solve the problem by adding another 10 minutes on to the end of our next lesson. It's nice to know that he has the flexibility and willingness to do that when things happen that are out of our control. And 2020 is often out of our control, Am I right?!

​Having studied in LA, Chicago, and Boston, I have a broad range of exposure to different playing styles and schools of thought that I bring to my teaching.  My main goal as a teacher is to help my students become self-sufficient in critiquing their playing and problem solving while practicing. 

I am a strong believer in practicality and utility, and so I take an organized approach to teaching students. I have found through teaching and my own studies that when students have simplified, clearly outlined goals, they learn more quickly and with greater ease. 

Additionally, I prefer to teach through musical examples focused on a student’s interests rather than etudes and general exercises without specific applications. We play music because it is beautiful and fun and students should feel that way about the music they study.  

I am experienced in playing both french and german bow which allows me to teach students of either technique at a high level. I accept students of all ability ...

My name is Jerry. I LOVE music and passing my knowledge on to others. I have played many different instruments in many different kinds of bands. It all one major thing in common, it was FUN! If you are not having fun while learning an instrument you won't want to learn. Lessons can be fun AND educational at the same time. I have had many parents tell me I'm one of the best teachers they have ever seen. (A couple of them were public school teachers themselves). I truly want my students to succeed and I will do everything in my power to help them accomplish that!

Extremely unprofessional to abruptly cancel scheduled/paid lessons without the courtesy of a message or any notice because this instructor was unhappy with a 12-year-old child's progress. Very surprised by and disappointed in the manner in which he handled this situation, certainly could have been handled with more respect and maturity.

Jerry is a wonderful instructor. I wasn’t sure how online lessons would go but they have been seamless and fun and my son is making progress with the bugle. I would highly recommend this format and this teacher. The convenience and quality of instruction are excellent. We are signing up for more lessons and may move on to another instrument once my son feels confident on the bugle.

I have studied with educators Gerry Pineda and Tom Derthick in the Sacramento area. Through my studies, I have been exposed to a broad range of musical styles which include jazz, classical, funk, Latin, and pop. I believe that my unique approach to teaching emphasizes the importance of technique and fundamentals, which will give the student skills to achieve their highest musical aspirations.

Jessica is a great instructor who we would highly recommend to anyone! 🏆
Our daughter (7yrs old) has studied violin with her in person (and now online) weekly for the past 3.5 years and enjoys their time together. Jessica has good communication and is caring and patient yet firm and steady in her teaching.

Jessica is a talented and accomplished musician who goes the extra mile for her students. Again, highly recommended! If you are looking to get your child on the right path as a musician with an effective player and teacher, look no further, Jessica will take great care of you!

Iv'e had several bass teachers over the years...non compares to the knowledge and application of music theory and its application to playing bass as Jessica.. She's taught me more than just how to play song on bass but also the application of the theory in a song

"Can't say enough great things about Daniel. We are very experienced when it comes to music teachers, my daughter (9) has been learning Suzuki violin for 5 years with multiple teachers and last year she decided to also start taking Bass. Her lessons are both challenging yet inspiring at the same time- a combination that is hard to do. Daniel listens to the student and has a natural knack for knowing how to change up the lesson when needed while still focusing on building a solid foundation. He understands that playing an instrument also needs a growing appreciation for music/songs that the instrument can play and he continues to grow her repertoire of song styles far beyond the classical that she is used to. Most importantly she looks forward to her lessons and loves playing to songs she is learning."
