Private Bass Guitar Teacher

My bass experience began later than my guitar experience, but I pursued it just as fervently! Over the last 13 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. I play bass (in addition to other instruments) almost nightly at the a dueling piano club I regularly play for.

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 ...

I've been in one working/gigging band or other without break for the past 10 years. I began intensely learning to play guitar at the age of 9 and have not stopp

Private Bass Guitar Teacher

I have taught bass for over 10 years and believe students should get to play what they want to play! Students are asked to come up with a list of songs and/or artists they would love to play. Through teaching chords, note reading and theory, the song possibilities are endless! I also can help the aspiring singer/bass player to be able to both play and sing simultaneously.

I have a degree from Bowling Green State University (Ohio) in Music Education. I've taught lessons for over 10 years and truly love working with eager students of all ages

Best instructor ever. Very patient. Knows how to handle an old guy like me. My playing doesn't really deserve someone as good, but I'm thankful to have her.

This class is perfect for beginners and intermediate students! We will learn techniques, scales, melodies, chord progressions, and styles. We will also take a look at how to craft our tone while studying the history of the bass guitar and the influential musicians who played them.

About Rachel

I started my musical path in a Ballet Studio. I fell in love with the crackle of the vinyl record playing as I learned to listen and dance with the rhythm. I started playing the guitar when I was in elementary and took classical lessons until I was a teenager. I really enjoy the art of practice

"Our son took bass lessons from Alex and really enjoyed them! He learned to listen to current songs and find the bass line. Xavier also learned how to read tab, and he really enjoyed playing his bass along with recorded tracks. Our son is a pretty busy kid, trying to balance sports, school, scouts and music. We did not want him to feel pressure about learning the bass, but we did want him to get a taste of how fun it can be to play music! We also wanted him to understand that learning to play requires a combination of listening and reading music. Alex was a great fit for our son! And now Xavier has a basic musical skill that we know he can build on someday!"

"I play a few instruments and had music teachers for other instruments before, but Ahmad is the most passionate, helpful, and efficient teacher I've ever had. What I really like about him as a teacher is he customizes the lessons according to your level and need (what genre you are interested in, what techniques you need to learn for specific songs and bands you are interested in, what theory you need to learn, and etc.). So if you are at intermediate or even advanced level and like to excel further, he is the best teacher and wouldn't waste your time at all! Personality-wise he is also very chill and easy to get along with. I highly recommend him for any level!"
