Expect to go over the basics of scales, arpeggios, chords, and rhythm exercises. Along with that we'll also be practicing timing to a metronome. Other exercises may include the isolation and practice of each hand (one that does the fretting and the other for finger style/pick technique). The main thing is the application of what we learn towards real life situations

Allen's an awesome teacher. He definitely knows his stuff and he's a well-rounded guitar player. He's really easy going and doesn't ever make you feel intimidated or dumb asking questions. He's really helping in bringing my guitar playing to the next level.

Allen is a very knowledgeable, kind and patient instructor with a laid-back and hands-on approach to teaching the guitar. I have already taken few sessions with him and see quite a bit of improvement, and I always look forward to my next class. I recommend Allen to everyone who feels the passion for learning the guitar at any level.

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'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!

I found Mark through TakeLessons a little over a year ago when my dad and I were looking to start learning guitar. I could not have been more pleased with how accommodating Mark was with our schedules and different skill levels. Whether its reviewing what we learned the week prior or taking on something new we are being challenged every lesson. My dad and I have come a long way since we started last year and Mark is to thank for our success. I highly recommend Mark if you are just starting out or have a few years under your belt. He is crazy knowledgeable!

Really knows his stuff and is very patient. Cares about you wanting to play to the best of your ability and really stays on topic and down to business but at the same time makes you feel comfortable when talking about your influences.

At 61 years old I wanted a challenge, and that was to learn how to play the bass guitar. Having had absolutely no previous training, and being quite terrified, James gave me the confidence that this was possible to achieve.

His knowledge to teach a simple approach in the theory of music, his patience, and ability to instruct in a way that makes sense, made learning exciting for me.

Highly recommend him to anyone who is interested in going beyond what they think they're capable of in a caring one on one environment. :)

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.
