Private Bass Guitar Teacher

I've been playing bass since I was 11. I have a degree in jazz performance so improvisation plays a key role in my lessons, but am fully capable of teaching any style. If you take lessons with me, we will certainly cover the basics of two finger style grooves, but can easily dive into advanced techniques like two hand tapping, artificial harmonics, chordal playing, three finger techniques, and slapping and popping.

About Tommy

Around this time I began to work at my neighborhood's local lesson shop Let's Play Music! off of W Broad Street in Falls C

Nathan was great! We lost internet at our house during the last 10 minutes of the lesson and Nathan was quick to solve the problem by adding another 10 minutes on to the end of our next lesson. It's nice to know that he has the flexibility and willingness to do that when things happen that are out of our control. And 2020 is often out of our control, Am I right?!

My lessons are designed to get my students playing songs and building technique as soon as possible. Because, that’s fun!
I’ve been playing professionally for over 35 years and teaching for over 25 years. I’ve been fortunate to play in several high-profile signed bands (Over the Rhine, Monk and Pay the Girl) and toured all over the world and played on lots of recordings. Fun!
As a teacher, I’ve founds many ways to explain and share this wonderful world of music; because not everyone learns the same way.
I specialize in fretless bass, fretful (lol) bass and upright bass.

Mike is an amazing guitar teacher. We started out having face to face lessons but then Covid-19 made that impossible. We started online lessons and the way Mike teaches online is the same way he does face to face. My son has learned so much and is playing better every day. Mike is vigilant when teaching and is able to show and correct hand movement, eye movement and posture when playing the guitar. I highly recommend Mike Georgin for online guitar lessons for anyone who is wanting to learn the guitar!
Malina
Mike has been the perfect teacher for my 11 year old daughter as she is learning to play bass! He has concentrated on proper technique, reading music, hearing the music, and nuances of what to expect when she gets a “gig” one of these days. He does an excellent job of building on basics and sprinkling in the fun songs so she can also play along with a couple songs she hears on the radio to keep her inspired to learn. I have been amazed with Mike’s ability to relate to someone brand new to the instrument while it is obvious that he, himself, has a very in-depth formally trained skillset himself and knowledge base. I would highly recommend Mike to both new and advanced players alike, for this very reason!
Jim
Mike Georgin is an outstanding instructor. He truly has a gift for teaching. I never stopped being amazed at the depth of his knowledge and professional musical capabilities. His music education plus years of on-stage and recording experience come together in each and every lesson. Mike is very patient, understanding, and works to be sure the lesson concepts are mastered without any pressure. If you just want to play some bass, Mike's your guy! If you want to play bass and learn music theory, Mike's your guy! Mike has the knowledge and experience to go as deep as you, the student, wish to go. I promise you will not regret having Mike as your instructor! He is awesome!

Jeegar P.
Jason is a fantastic teacher and really easy to work with. We focused on fundamentals and understanding the fret board. This was a new approach for me as he weeded out bad habits and taught me proper form. It took a month or so, but when i was able to develop an ease with the fret board and spacial awareness with my strumming hand, I was able to navigate the guitar with so much more confidence.

Highly recommend working with Jason as he is patient and wants you to become a strong musician instead of learning a few songs really well. Also, he is upbeat and provides good feedback so you continue to develop and grow.
Brenden
I've been going to Jason for a few months now and I have significantly improved my playing ability and increased my music knowledge. Lessons are tailored to what I want to learn and there has been noticeable improvement even over a short period of time.

He is really patient and kind, and he got playing songs in days.

"More then just bass lessons!

I went in to lessons with Peter looking for some review on theory and notation reading but I received much more. When I asked for a lesson on a specific subject he addressed exactly what I was looking for, as well as a quick history of the topics that we discussed. The combination of playing the bass, learning music theory, and music history, made these lessons very unique and a lot of fun for me. I would recommend Peter to any musician who likes a well rounded approach to music."

"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. :)"

Learn Bass Guitar: How to Play a Walking Bass Line in 3 Steps

Looking for a way to make your bass lines move? Bass guitar teacher Miller W. shares his three step plan to creating walking bass lines... The walking bass line is one of the most fundamental parts of American music. It is found most commonly in blues and jazz, but as you learn bass guitar, you will hear its influence in almost any style of music. A walking bass line provides a strong rhythmic and harmonic foundation by smoothly moving from each chord to the next using four quarter notes pe …
