David did a wonderful job, teaching me bass via Zoom with a lot of focus on what I wanted to do. Even though my interests ranged from technical to classical to theoretical to funk, he always had something he could show me and proved to have great knowledge of the instrument as well as of music theory and history. I would recommend him to anyone.
Alec
David is a talented and extremely knowledgable musician. He has a deep love and respect for the music and imparts this love on his students. Always going above and beyond, he gives all of himself in his students, making sure they not only have proper technique, but a strong foundation of knowledge about the tradition of flamenco. He is able to breakdown and explain the complexities of this arcane art form in a way that is accessible to all levels of musicians. I couldn't recommend him more highly!
Aki M.
David is patient and enthusiastic about teaching how to play the guitar. He is also encouraging!

Bass guitar was one of those things I had a passion about for many years before I took it up. When I finally did, I explored the techniques of many of the great players like Victor Wooten and Jaco Pastorius. I have performed in several bands as the bassist, but I've most enjoyed studying it as a solo instrument while writing my own pieces and learning songs of great artists like Larry Graham and John Mayer.

I typically play a 6 string bass but I'm happy to teach any type of bass from a 4 to 11 string instrument. I love teaching improvisation and special right hand techniques, so whatever path you want to go down I bet I can help you.

About Jonathan

I studied music therapy and music theory at Temple University from '06-'10. Learned a lot. Then again, I learned even more teaching at a school for kids with learning disabilities and working as a traveling street performer. Once you see the world and work with some unexpected challenges, you learn

"I had played bass for a few years, and decided I wanted to take lessons when I felt stuck. It was fun, but I didn't really have a focus on bass I was excited about. I found that with Kellen. He really focused on rhythm and grooving with the drummer and I got hooked. I highly recommend him, especially if you need to work on your groove!"

"Collin is an amazing teacher! I started taking lessons with him on the electric bass - I was a beginner on the instrument, but I had lots of previous musical knowledge. Collin was incredibly patient with me from the get go, and had a lot of insight as to what tunes would be good for me to start with and what exercises and scales would suit my specific level of learning. He was patient and kind with me, and went at exactly the pace that I needed him to. Whenever I was struggling with a scale or bass line, he would immediately notice, slow down, and show me note for note what I was supposed to play. Conversely, whenever I was learning quickly and with ease, he would react accordingly and speed up the information a bit or move on to more difficult tasks. Collin a very skilled musician himself which makes it all the more inspiring to take lessons from him. He makes every lesson fun and informative. After each lesson, I felt pumped to practice and play during the week between our lessons. Collin is an incredible guy and a wonderful instructor - highly recommended!!!"
