Because I have played Guitar for a long time, it was easy to play Bass Guitar. I have played Bass Guitar in different Rock ensembles and enjoyed the instrument. In this course I'll go through scales, accompaniment patterns and basic playing technique. After this course you'll be able to play a lof of songs alone and together with other instruments.

We could not be happier with Matthew! He has the perfect deameanor and teaching technique for our 7 year old. Our son has learned an unbelievable amount in the last two months, but more importantly, he thinks playing is fun. We are so happy to have found Matthew!

I can teach a variety of styles from classical Contra-bass an bow technique to jazz, or if you prefer we can work on syncopation for metal, holding down changes for country or just rocking it out. If you need to learn how to slap it or want to learn to strum it, then you got the right guy. I can help you work or learn to sight read sheet music, learn tab, and improve over changes/modes. Basic or advanced music theory is alright, or if you want to get really deep into it then you've got the guy that discovered Siegel Harmonics. Google it and yes there is a follow up (double blind peer-review) study coming!

I also spent a year singing and playing Bob Dylan covers on bass while on a solo tour in Stockholm Sweden. Stockholm is where they hand out the Nobel Prize, the year following Bob Dylan won a Nobel Prize. There is more to the story I assure you. Now, I cannot officially claim there was a connection, but if you my future student want to believe that there was a connection then I ...

Bgcheck Background Checked


I've been teaching piano for over ten years, and my students have gone on to make piano a life-long hobby, play in recitals and at church, or just enjoy playing for friends and family. My objective as a music educator is to instill in students a lifelong passion for music. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to play basic melodies and as time goes on you'll begin to play your favorite tunes comfortably. I love working with students of all ages and levels, and I can't wait to meet you!

Caleb comes highly recommended from the Hannibal Family. My daughters (Sydney and Reagan) took over 2 years of piano lesson under the guidance and supervision of Caleb, through the USC School of Music, and found him to be an excellent choice for them. Not only is Caleb very knowledgeable and devoted to teaching in the area of music, he's also a great motivator and excellent with children because of his patience and passion for the arts.

Caleb was a great instructor. My son Tarun started taking Piano lessons when he was 7. Caleb was very patient with my son who can be very difficult to teach. Tarun has had another teacher since then but he still talks about Caleb. I would not hesitate a second if I had to pick Caleb as our Piano instructor if had a chance.

Phillip was on time and professional, introduced himself and coordinated with us appropriately. His first lesson made our twelve-year-old feel comfortable and she really got a kick out of when he asked her what she thought SHE needed to work on. He did a wonderful job expressing her creative outlet and was very comfortable in the mechanics of the French horne. Would recommend any time!

I can’t say enough good things about Hannah! My daughter is taking lessons from her and has learned so much already in such a short amount of time. She is so kind and makes it such a comfortable and fun learning environment for her students. My daughter looks forward to lessons every week and I would highly recommend her to anyone interested in learning to play the violin!

"Wonderful Instructor

I studied music--voice and piano--with Ronda for a number of years when I was a teenager. She left a lasting impression on me, and I know that I flourished under her direction. She is patient and kind, but also meticulous and knowledgable. Her teaching style is both engaging and professional. She has a long history of successful music instruction and this is evident in her lessons. I highly recommend Ronda."

I had taken flamenco lessons in the past with other instructors, but this is the first time I've actually made progress. He's done a great job of creating a lesson plan and teaching a very technical style, while keeping it fun and exciting. I really look forward to my lessons every week, which is a credit to Guilherme's ability to balance method with fun. If you're at all interested in latin styles or jazz, I very highly recommend Guilherme!"
