I have been taking lessons with Frank for several years and I think he is an excellent instructor. He has helped me have confidence in my abilities and is patient when I get frustrated. He has been able to teach me about music theory in such a way that it is understandable. I have been to some of his performances and he is a talented musician as well as instructor.

I think the best thing to do is know what kinds of music you want to learn. What songs you want to learn and how fast. If you want to know theory then ask the instructor if that's what they start with. If it's just learning chords or songs then great, if it’s what you want, get after it. If you want to be a rockstar, ask the teacher their opinion on what it would take to make this experience more enjoyable for you..

Frankly, if you're not having fun then why do it?

Beginners
I'm not currently taking beginner bass students. Please refer to my studio partner Melissa:
https://takelessons.com/profile/melissa-m62

Intermediate
Expand use of arpeggios and look into common variations in traditional harmony. Also begin to look into the applications of polyrhythms in bass playing.

Advanced
Break out of basic arpeggios through use of modes and chromaticism. Really push your rhythm to the limit through more advanced polyrhythms and use of asymmetrical meters. Also exploring different types of tone and methods of making sound.

Online Bass Guitar Teacher

Bass guitar students start with five subjects.

1) Technique is concerned with the development of the physical mechanics involved in playing the instrument.

2) Scales are part of the basic vocabulary and building blocks of the musical language.

3) Intervals are also basic vocabulary of the musical language and progress into chords, and yes, bass players think and play chords.

4) Note reading is not required for every student. It really depends on the student's goals. However, I strongly encourage learning to read musical notation, (more than tablature). Literacy in reading music is analogous to literacy in reading in our English language. Can you imagine how much smaller our world would be if we couldn't read?

5) Songs utilize the skills and concepts of all the previously mentioned subjects and are the goal of studying music. And by the way, they are really fun to play, especially when interacting with other musicians or performing for an audience.

These five ...

I've been teaching bass for nearly 20 years. As a professional bassist playing 5-8 gigs weekly for about 10 years, I learned a wide range of bass lines and playing styles.
I can help bassists of all levels improve and diversify their playing technique and awareness of all things bass!

"After my first lesson I can see Eric is ready , willing and quite capable of taking on the challenge to work with me as an adult beginner on the instrument. He took the time to really get a good idea of where my skill level currently is and gave clear instruction on exercises to use in order to build from there. Furthermore, he gives a clear picture of the path the instruction will follow in order to get to the level of playing that I want to achieve.
Eric's personality combined with the spacious home studio setting provides a comfortable atmosphere of learning without distractions.
Not only do I feel Eric will be a good instructor for me but, I will also be scheduling my daughter for lessons with him to learn her third instrument, the guitar. So yes, I do recommend him for lessons!"
