Carter N. Katy, TX

I've been teaching bass guitar for 8 years. The lessons focus on technique, and theory. I customize the curriculum to fit the goals and objectives of each student, while teaching how to play with other musicians and instruments.

My philosophy is to teach the student how and why things work the way they do so that the student can grow creatively.

About Carter

I've loved music since I was able to walk. When I was 5 or 6, I would listen to my mother's stereo system, with Jim Croce playing on the 8-Track tape deck.....(ok, so I'm aging myself a little bit). I would lay on the floor in between the speakers which were turned inward toward my ears. I could lay there for hours, tapping my toes to "Bad Bad Leroy Brown", "Roller Derby Queen", "You Don't Mess Around with Jim", and many others. I would also listen to the Beatles, Seargent Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band", and "Revolution" and be completely taken away. I didn't realize it then, but what captivated me were the songs that were written to tell stories, and the music that brought the stories to life. As I grew into my early teens, I got into Kiss, Alice Cooper, Rush, Ted Nugent, and Jimi ...

My son started lessons when he was 8 on acoustic guitar. I randomly chose a teacher and was hoping for a teacher who could be patient yet firm and be able to inspire my son. Mr Carter is the best teacher I could have asked for - he is all that and more. Quite often, I listen to the teacher and student conversation with admiration as they are discussing ideas and Mr. Carter's openness to receiving ideas on a tune or what Ashwin wants to learn. The frank and open discussion results in motivating the young student as they feel a sense of importance and builds confidence (sometimes too much!). At the same time, when the situation calls for it, Mr. Carter is firm and points out when Ashwin hasn't practiced or not done well and that pushes him to do better. I look forward to many years ahead.

I really recommend Rafael. He is a teacher, is not a person that knows only how to play. He is a person that also knows how to teach. He finds the way to explain things so I can understand them.

Recomiendo a Refael como profesor. No solo sabe tocar sino tambien sabe enseniar. Busca la forma de explicar las cosas y que estas sean entendibles para alguien que no sabe mucho de musica.
Robert C. Houston, TX

Although guitar is my main instrument, I have also played bass allot professionally over the years. There were times when I actually played more bass than guitar gigs. My focus in the bass lessons in to develop technique, rhythm and knowledge of the bass fingerboard. I can also teach music and chart reading and how to create your own bass lines.

Andrew D. Houston, TX

My bass experience began later than my guitar experience, but I pursued it just as fervently! Over the last ten years or so of playing I have played bass in many projects. From alternative, to metal, to folk, to indie-rock. I've been a guest studio bass player on a good number of tracks and still continue to play and teach today.

Most bass teachers that also play guitar are really just guitar players that can play their way around a bass on a basic level. However, there is much more to a bass than just playing what a guitar player or other musician might be playing!

The bass is a unique and colorful instrument in its own right. It shares some things in common with a guitar, but has a wide range of its own qualities and abilities! The bass plays a PIVOTAL role in almost all music. I would argue that it is even MORE crucial than many other instruments like guitar or piano.

There are not enough skilled bass players out there. Let's get to learning and add one more to their ...

About Andrew

Music is my life. As cheesy as that phrase goes, for me, it holds true. I'm Andrew. Everything I do and have been doing has been geared towards music. I've been in one working/gigging band or other without break for the past 8 years. I began intensely learning to play guitar at the age of 9 and have not stopped. The second I started learning I knew that that was what I wanted to do. Fast forward to now, and here I am loving every minute of it. I took lessons of my own as a kid, which helped shape me greatly. I then picked up bass at the age of 13. I've taught personalized lessons for over 5 years now without a single complaint. At this point in my musical career, the majority of my experience and attitude has come from being "in the field". I've played South By South West, ...
