Private Bass Guitar Teacher

I’ve been playing bass since I was 10. I can teach how to fill the role of a bassist in a band for a number of genres.

About Mike

I am a music supervisor/ coordinator for film and TV. Since the quarantine has put a hold on the productions I'm working on, I have time to pick up a few students online! I graduated from Penn State with a bachelors of music in double bass performance. When the corona virus started shutting everyt

Mike is a gem and true natural when it comes to music education. His passion for music, patience, charismatic personality, and lifelong devotion to learning really shines through during his lessons with my son. In fact, my son enjoyed his weekly music lessons with Mike so much that we booked time for years to come. Finding an instructor like Mike is rare, and I’m excited to have him help grow my son’s musical knowledge in a very accessible way through FaceTime, SO easy! Within a few short lessons my son was already walking around the house singing and playing the guitar like a young troubadour.
Liz
Mike is such a patient, engaging, kind teacher, and has kept my six-year-old son busy via FaceTime one hour/week learning the basics of music. Knowing that my son is engaged and learning with a great teacher has been invaluable to me as a working mom, especially during the current quarantine, but I plan to have my son continue taking lessons because of how much he's learning and enjoying his lessons. Mike engages my son by incorporating subjects that interest him - like Super Mario Bros. - into his lessons. I can't recommend him highly enough!

My name is Chris B. and I've been playing music for most of my life. The best lesson that I've learned is that we're never done learning. Once you start believing that you know everything there is to know about your instrument then you've stopped growing. I've also learned that I enjoy sharing

I have been taking lessons from Chris for 5 years. He is very open to learn and teach all styles of music. in turn, allowing me learn and play music I though i never would. His guidance in "the technology" of music is also greatly appreciated.
The learning experience with Chris is top notch, never an issue with communication or punctuality.Always able to move around his busy schedule for the "adult" student.

About Nadav

Hi there, My name is Nadav and I have been a professional guitar player and teacher for most of my life now. I have a very extensive experience playing festivals and venues in the U.S and abroad and have been teaching beginner and advanced guitar/bass and musical ensemble classes for 15 years.

Bill T.
Speaking from the standpoint of a colleague of Nadav’s for many years and professional musician/educator myself, Nadav is the real deal. He is my top recommendation, without question, for anyone looking to study the guitar and/or music in general.

Nadav is an extremely gifted and skilled musician, composer, and bandleader with very deep understanding of playing the guitar. He has the experience and versatility to so in a multitude of different styles ranging from R&B, Pop, Funk, Jazz and Ethiopian groove music (check out his incredible band: Abbess Orchestra). He is also extremely kind, has a gentle yet “matter-of-fact” demeanor and is the consummate professional.

For anyone who has interest in learning the guitar and needs an instructor, no matter their experience level, it’s impossible to go wrong with Nadav. Just check him out and sign up!
Eran
I was a self taught guitar player since a very early age, so when I met Nadav for the first time I already knew many songs and chords. But my technique was a mess.
Nadav helped me establish a healthy and meticulous practice routine that fixed my technique very quickly.
I would recommend him as a teacher for every level.
Randy
Great teacher with good vibes! Nadav showed me great ways to practice harmony and soloing on the guitar. Highly recommended.

Great instructor; always prepared and patient. He works towards my goals always.
Ben
Eric is the real deal as a guitar teacher. I personally play the guitar myself, but as any parent knows when it comes to teaching your own child there is going to be some resistance no matter what! Lol. Eric is very well educated in music and has the rapport to teach beginners as well as advanced students. My son looks forward to his time with Eric and considers him a friend as well! In closing, if your looking for an instructor that has a solid music background that can channel that knowledge into your child or self, look no further!

"I always wanted to learn bass and I was referred to Kevin by a friend. She told me she’s seen him playing in bands around the area and he could definitely help you out. I started meeting with Kevin once a week and he knew how to break down the songs to help me learn them. He started teaching me the theory behind bass guitar and my scales. Fast forward a year later, I’m not confident enough to play in a band! I can’t thank Kevin enough for everything he’s done through our lessons. I always mention him when people ask me how I improved so much. Thank you Kevin!"

"Excellent Bass Guitar Instructor!

Rick has been my son's bass guitar teacher for the last year. We are impressed with his genuine care and concern for our 17 year old son as a person and a bass guitar player. He always works with us and our schedule considering we have to make a 30-40 minute drive across San Antonio for his lessons. We highly recommend Rick for both his great character qualities as well as his guitar instructor expertise!"

"Before I met Corey, I was a recovering drummer, transitioned to Bass. All self taught. Little did i know, I was a ROOT NOTE player just getting by. After Just over a year being taught by Corey, my skills have advanced so drastically. It's a great experiance being taught by the BEST. I now have bands calling me to sub or wanting me to join. If you're looking to advance your chops, or maybe you're a beginner, Corey is THE ONE for you.

"Right Then!

I took bass lessons with Jeff in my formative years as a musician (as did many of my friends). He is the perfect teacher: Highly skilled, informative, patient, friendly, challenging and a lot of fun!

Jeff was more than willing to teach me things I wanted to know but more importantly, he set me straight on developing good technique, note and chord chart reading, understanding theory, ear training and improvising. He also turned me on to tons of great life changing music that was not yet on my young radar! He is a walking encyclopedia of musical knowledge.

Lastly, he has remained a friend throughout my whole life. I've even had the honor of playing many gigs with him, something I would have never imagined as a young beginner!

From beginners to advanced students, Jeff is your man.

Thank you for everything, Master Stetson!"
