I like playing funk, jazz, rock, pop and Motown bass. My favorite players are Jaco Pastorious, Pino Palladino, James P. Jameson and John Paul Jones.

Pain free playing, good tone, dexterity in the fingers, great time, and learning style appropriate techniques (slapping, double thumbing, fingerpicking, harmonics etc.) are what my bass lessons are all about.

It was only a first lesson but I can already tell I'm going to be taking more lessons with Daniel. He's very knowledgeable, patient, and dedicated. He detailed a specific plan for me to work on that isn't too rigid or boring, I'm looking forward to relearning the flute with him.

Great 1st lesson! Looking forward to continuing and learning more

"Well, for starters, Marc is a great teacher (and all around great guy). My decision to choose Marc was solely based on his student's reviews. Do yourself a favor and look no further. If you really want to learn and quickly absorb the lessons, choose Marc. I'm learning quite a bit and although I thought that I'd be struggling, I'm picking up things rather quickly due to his style of teaching/explaining."

"Excellent teacher for students of all ages and experience

Robert has been assisting me with my bass guitar and acoustic guitar education. He has expertly weaved music theory into my lessons and has given me a huge boost to my musical confidence. I used to think some things would be too difficult and perhaps insurmountable but with his encouragement I feel a lot more confident. I have been helped because his lessons have been tailored to my needs and weaknesses. Robert is a very friendly music teacher who would be able to assist anyone of any age. I cannot recommend him enough."
