Well, so far this is only my first bass lesson, so I didn't even know if I would like it. But I must say I'm more excited than ever! Kevin is clearly a virtuoso player, with a pleasant, relaxed demeanor, clear teaching style, and the best sense of humor. That really takes any edge off any nervousness. I'm looking forward to the next one!

About Rich
Music has always been my biggest passion. I started playing guitar at the age of 10, and I haven't been able to put it down since. In grade school I started my first gigs playing in bands and spent all of my time outside of school playing guitar.

Coming from a family of eight where there wasn't much money for schooling, I put myself through high school and college gigging, and teaching.

I earned a music degree from Wayne State University in performance guitar, studying under the likes of Joe Fava and Charles Postlewate. At the same time playing extensive clubwork, shows, concerts, studio work and teaching.

My styles include virtually all elements of guitar. Rock, Blues, Metal, Country, Classical and Jazz.

In "2006", I opened up a guitar studio in South Lyon Mi, where I taught, along with lessons from my home.

*** Lesson D
etails ***
I take a very serious, professional approach to my music studies and my teaching, but with a very humorous, and free-flowing concept to keep my students interested. I am very patient, and truly care about the progress of each student.

Each student that I teach has a different lesson structure depending on what the student wishes to accomplish. I tailor each lesson to help them move closer at a rapid pace to whatever style of music they have the strongest interest in. But because guitar is such a diverse instrument with many different established forms of technique, I do advocate developing proficiency in multiple styles of playing.

While I completely approve of learning to play music from TAB which expedites the playing of actual songs, I highly recommend that beginning guitarists learn to read music as you never know what they might end up doing with their knowledge. (Studio work, shows, teaching, or other scenarios where reading music is essential).

Starting to learn any instrument can be a challenge. But with persistence, guidance, and actual progress, learning how to play an instrument can be of the most rewarding experiences, regardless of your age. With my help, you or your child will be able to enjoy the experience of discovering how fulfilling playing can be.

*** Studio Equipment ***
lessons in living room, music stands, acoustic & electric guitars, amps/cables

*** Travel Equipment ***
Will provide a loaner guitar for a lesson if necessary.

*** Specialties ***
All styles - Rock, Country, Jazz, Classical, Blues, Metal

Look Forward to seeing you!

Anything you want to learn about playing Bass!

About Clay
I started playing guitar when I was 14 years old, and I continued to pursue music as a serious profession when I attended McLennan College for Commercial Songwriting. Now I am currently teaching guitar and basic drums for a music school, while also performing in a live Top 40 cover band. I consider myself a serious songwriter as well, and I have been writing and recording my own tracks for 8 years.

I encourage my students to bring in music they are interested in learning because learning how to play guitar or drums is more than just theory and techniques. Music is meant to be fun! I also personalize each lesson for every student based on what they are looking to learn and improve. Every student learns at a different pace and there is no rush to get where they want to be -- patience is just as important as practice.

I've played everything from Bluegrass to Big Band jazz. I don't place any limits on the styles or genres we can explore in our lessons. My main intention is to make music exciting and educational. I tailor my lessons to fit each students goals. We can learn to read, improvise, and play by-ear. For those who are interested, I also enjoy discussing what it's like to make a living as a musician (music equipment, live performance, studio recording, starting a band, finding gigs, etc).

About Zachary
Music is one of the most important parts of my life. I started playing when I was 6, and I've been hooked ever since! I've performed with bands in many different genres. Over the past two years, I've shared the stage with The Wailers, Charles Bradley, The Bellamy Brothers, and countless others. I've also performed with musicians such as Chuchito Valdes and Jennifer Holiday. Currently, I'm a touring musician based here in Tampa. I perform with a 10-piece soul band, a Nashville-based country outfit, and my own jazz trio. I love teaching and sharing my stage experience!

Memphis, TN

View Full Profile

I like to have fun and teach songs. I can teach plenty of theory but I've found after teaching over the years students want to play songs. So that's what I do. I teach students how to break down songs and train their ears. Bass is half of the rhythm section. It is important for the bass to lock in with the drums rhythmically while also standing on its own. I teach the fundamentals that will change you from being someone that plays bass to being a BASS PLAYER

About Derrick
Derrick has been a professional bass player for over 20 years. His less is more approach has been the backbone of his style and career alike. A strong work ethic and positive attitude has helped make Derrick a first call bassist for both live touring and studio recording.

After 5 strong years on the road, Derrick moved to Memphis and worked with some great local Memphis bands such as Mudflap King, Pulse Party Crew, and Country Artist Derek Joseph.

In August 2014, Derrick made the leap back to Nashville and became the touring bassist for McKenzies Mill. Derrick was also the session bassist for McKenzies
Mill’s EP, recorded with New Voice Entertainment in 2015.

Shortly after, Derrick became the house session bassist for Loud Sound Ridge Productions. Recording radio quality tracks for artists Paul Newton and Jay Bragg.

In April, 2016, Derrick made Memphis, TN home-base again.

As of July, 2016, Derrick is now the in-house bass instructor at Circle Music Center and Martin Music.

Starting in October, 2016 Derrick became the first call drummer for MGP Studios, recording bass tracks and performing in live showcases for the various artist under the MGP Record Label.
