Stop wasting your time - take Robert.

I only had the pleasure of taking piano lessons with Robert for two months since I got into Harvard and had to move to the East Coast, but I can confidently attest that he is a phenomenal teacher. To begin with, Robert brings to the table not only his classical training but also an open, creative, out-of-the-box approach. He is extremely knowledgeable and seasons lessons with fantastic facts about composers and pieces which makes everything a lot more interesting and memorable. lessons are versatile and designed to develop several key skills simultaneously. I never really played the piano before but after only two months with Robert I could read notes, develop my technique and actually play two beautiful pieces! If you are looking for a well-rounded, brilliant, cool teacher - search no more.

I also teach bass guitar. I double on electric bass whenver I called for a bass gig. Much of the concepts from guitar with technique and improvisation and reading and playing music carry over to bass guitar.

My daughter is 14 years old and although she had been playing the guitar for several years she was ready to advance to jazz guitar. She began lessons with Jesse and it was instant progress, she always enjoys the lessons and she is really good thanks to the constant support of her teacher Jesse, she plays in the school jazz band and has shown huge improvement over the past year. Jesse is extremely flexible which has really helped us with our daughters busy schedule. I would recommend Jesse to anyone interested in quality guitar lessons.

Jesse is an excellent guitarist who knows more tunes than you could ever imagine. He's knowledgeable, friendly, patient, and willing to adapt to many styles. He is rooted in jazz, but can teach to any preference. I highly recommend him for guitarists of any age/skill level in the market for a young teacher that is a quality veteran in his own right!

Each lesson is designed on the level of the student's ability from beginner to advanced. Rock, R&B, funk, jazz, blues, POP and country music. I like to use song learning as a vehicle to sharpen your skills. Learning skills through songs is more fun for beginners. More advanced students will work on everything from theory, reading, harmony; and how you can use scales and arpeggios in a number of ways over several different styles of music.

Why TakeLessons?

Bass Guitar Lessons

One of the most constructive activities young people can engage in is to learn how to play a musical instrument. If rock, blues or jazz music are your style, bass guitar lessons are a great choice. Although guitar or drums tend to the most popular options, bass is a cool instrument because it helps to keep the rhythm going in the music with its low end rumble.

As you begin to learn bass guitar, you’ll notice that it is not a difficult musical instrument to learn. After a few months of bass guitar lessons with a TakeLessons Certified™ teacher, you should be able to play certain riffs or even full songs by ear. You’ll also find your senses heightened as a result of your instruction and ongoing practice sessions.

Based on how you’re progressing, our bass guitar teachers can also suggest which supplemental journals or ‘how to play guitar’ books to use between your scheduled lessons. This will ensure you continue to improve and you keep your bass playing skills sharp.

Still not convinced you need private bass guitar lessons? Check out the top benefits of our lessons:

• Lessons are fully customized for your age, experience level and interests. • Extensive roster of certified, friendly bass guitar teachers. • Access to an online lesson journal to keep you on track and motivated. • 100% Money Back Guarantee.
