Private Bass Guitar Teacher

Bass is a key part in a song which helps the grove and pace. It could be as simple as playing the root notes and as intricate as playing arpeggios, modes, and sometimes soloing. I will teach you the fundamentals of playing bass either by yourself or with a band. We will work on drills, scales and learn other songs that are related to the genre you are interested in.

Noah is very patient, encouraging, and enthusiastic. I felt comfortable and encouraged when taking lessons with Noah. I've taken private lessons for other instruments, but I'm a beginner with formal guitar lessons. Noah made it easy for me to get started at the first lesson. I would highly recommend Noah for beginners or experienced musicians.

Noah is an excellent teacher who does a fantastic job of tailoring his lessons to his students interests, and clearly communicating the concepts he is teaching. I've been taking lessons with him for several months and he has been able to keep the lessons fun and engaging.

Noah was a great teacher because he knew his stuff and he was patient. From jazz to rock, Noah had the tricks for licks! 10/10 would recommend. Why aren't you taking lessons from him already?

Hristo is patient and full of passion for music. He is very knowledgeable and capable of imparting this knowledge well on children, as he has done thus far with our 10-year old and 6 year-old (first full month of lessons). He is flexible and even came to our house for the lesson when our schedule for that day was affected by another commitment.

Its going well thus far and our sons look forward to the lessons every week.

This guy loves what he does!

Histro is always on time and is very knowledgeable. He is a college grad that can teach you soo much. I've never played guitar before and after my third lesson with him, I already know 12 chords and am capable of playing at least two songs. A very relaxing way to spend my sundays. He makes it fun to learn the guitar!

Bass is my primary instrument - I love playing bass! I also love to teach it.

As a bassist, my primary concern is with your technique. I will show you proven strategies to help you play with power, control, and minimal effort. These principals set the foundations from which all world-class players are built. Every single lesson is designed just for you. We focus on your goals while having fun playing music together. We talk about good practice habits and how to achieve new heights with your abilities. You learn to play songs that you recognize as well as improvising basslines of your own.

Bass is a fabulous instrument because it has the biggest influence on harmony. We will see exactly WHY the bass controls the music and HOW to get the results your ear is searching for. By helping you understand the fundamental principles of music we can take the guess work out of your playing, enabling you to make solid choices with consistent results.

Talk to you soon!

"So glad to have Jonathan as my teacher

I am a busy professional in my 50s that wanted to learn how to play the electric bass. After searching the web for in home lessons I found Jonathan Greenberg.
Jonathan is an absolute professional with the ability to quickly connect with a student at their level. I have already learned an amazing amount in 4 weeks and have confidence that Jonathan will have me playing at a high level in a very short time period.
He gives me "homework" and he follows up to determine if I am staying with it.
A great mannerism and teaching style make Jonathan a teacher well worth asking for.
