Once basics are covered special attention is paid to chordal theory and how to use it. We will also work on technique as needed. The goal is to have you ready to gig in a very short time.

I enjoyed my lessons with Greg. He is very helpful, always upbeat, patient and positive. He takes things slow so that you don't feel like you have tons of things to practice. And over all he's just really nice and fun and a very good teacher to have.

Greg is a great men also a great teacher, when i first meet with Greg for my first lesson that i known i will be learning by the great teacher.
I had played guitar in the past many, many years but for sometime in my life was so busy working, and focus on raising family but i had to put away my guitar i bought 25 years ago. finally, now i decided to learn to play my guitar again and find Greg on take lesson.com and he has been teaching me just like i am a beginner playing but i am now so happy that i am on a good hand and Greg had been teaching me playing my guitar again. so far so good. Thanks Gregory

I took lessons from Greg when I was much younger say 12-13 for a year or more. He taught me a lot and had me playing guitar really fast, I always tried to do what he asked and he never ever got frustrated if I did it wrong or couldn't play what we were learning right away correctly!. Also all of what he taught me stayed in my head all these years some how and I kinda progressively got better and better!. I'm pretty happy with my playing and a lot of others are to!. Greg has something special about his students and teaching them to play the guitar correctly no matter what or how long it takes, he cares about you as a student. You get out what you put in ,but be patient cause it also takes time. But you'll see the difference later down the road that Greg was the right teacher for learning to play and the theory behind the guitar.....I recommend him as a great guitar teacher!. I myself take lessons from him again at the age of 38 , I was able to find him on Facebook after all these years and we do lessons via Skype, I'm a very happy student, very happy!. And I thank Greg Gladman for that!.

The bass guitar is first and foremost a melodic instrument, so I'm prepared to have you learning the basics so you can get started playing whatever style you enjoy the most. I'll especially help with all the hardware that playing an electric instrument comes with. I choose music with my students so the music they're playing is both fun and educational.

We're gonna play some grooves and HAVE FUN! I'm a professional musician and have been a performing bassist for over 20 years, and I hope to pass along some of my knowledge and expertise to you. I customize your lessons to your needs and what you want to do with your ability to play bass. I can prepare you for any genre as I include fundamentals (for example, scales and arpeggios) in your practice. I use these books for reference and/or lesson work:
- Hal Leonard's Bass Method-Books 1, 2 & 3 (Ed Friedland)
- Mel Bay's Deluxe Jazz & Rock Bass Method (Vincent Bredice)
I can help you learn how to play with a pick, how to "slap & pluck," how to sing and play simultaneously, and even how to sightread.

About Rob

Hey there! I've been performing music for as long as I can remember, and performing professionally for over 30 years. I have formal training and 12 years of teaching experience. I teach with positivity, patience, and perseverance and help you express the music in you! *** Lesson Details *** A

Andrew has been the best music instructor I've worked with. While there is great structure and implementation key fundamentals, he is all for self discovery as a musician and developing individual styles. He takes care to focus on the improvements as an individual as opposed to a cookie cutter mold for instructions. I've grown more than I thought I would in this time!

Andrew is fun, patient, knowledgeable and insightful. My skills and knowledge have grown vastly while enjoying every step along the way. Recommend him highly for anyone.

Alex is a very patient and down to earth teacher. I've had teachers before but none have helped me progress as fast as Alex. He is very knowledgeable and shows me what a wonderful instrument the guitar is. I'm always excited to play more after our lessons. Would highly recommend him to anyone who wants to pick up the guitar.
Edward
I've been Alex's student for over 3 years and I've definitely noticed how much of a great teacher he is. He is very resourceful and knowledgeable so he can teach a lot of different genres from classical to the pop songs we hear today. His ability to teach makes it easy for me to learn and understand songs and pieces. Not only that, Alex cares about my progress and makes sure that I'm not confused or lost about any of the material he teaches me. In my time with Alex, I've noticed how much progress I've made and definitely recommend him for anyone who's looking to learn how to play the guitar.

"Greg knows his instruments inside out. He has explored every genre from countless musical perspectives and brings this to his teaching.

He is patient and encouraging. He affords his students more than just how-to's - he asks of them to truly connect with the instrument they want to learn. He is well-worth your investment as he will truly invest in you."

"Jeff Stetson is & has been my #1 recommendation to learn to play music for 20+ years!

Jeff was probably the best thing to happen to me as a teenager. I took bass lessons from Jeff for 5 years & in that time, my world of music expanded as did my skills in playing music. My lessons with Jeff prepared me well enough to enter into college level music courses. If I had an audition, Jeff zeroed in on what I needed to know & helped me get the gig. His study techniques work, if you work em'! He will show you what you want & you will get a whole lot more. Ask him about the Louie Louie/Wild Thing thread & you will get the history & learn to play R-n-R, the Blues, R.n.B, Funk. & the foundations of Jazz. All levels, all styles, Jeff Stetson is my #1 recommendation for learning music. Thanks Jeff, I am positive you helped keep me out of trouble & possibly jail too."
