Private Bass Guitar Teacher

When you sign up for bass guitar lessons, you will begin by learning the basics of the instrument including proper holding and playing position, tone production, rhythm, first position notes, and notation. Once you get the basics down, you will learn how to play your favorite songs regardless of style. All of this can happen within the first 4-6 months of playing.

I haven't played the violin since I was in middle school, and I wanted to re-learn to play it. I am so glad I picked Dave, he is very professional and made me feel very comfortable. I jumped in with both feet and Dave made the instructions at our first lesson easy for me to understand. Excellent location and studio is awesome.
Rushia Hendricks
Excellent lesson. Does a wonderful job at taking older students and gently holding their feet to the fire to bring out the best- even under the most challenging of circumstances. Kudos to being such a uniquely great teacher!
Tom L.
I realize it was the first lesson but I was a little disappointed that we spend nearly the entire time on housekeeping items, like canceling and re-scheduling appointments. I think that could have been covered with an e-mail or handout. I also thought we spent too much time going over the differences between acoustic and electric guitars - considering my age and background. Would have liked to see him demonstrate what I was asked to practice before the next lesson instead of just being told to refer to the workbook.

Funk, slap, walking, in-the-pocket. All strange terms that you'll need to know. Let me show you how to put down the foundation to most musical styles from rock to r&b or even metal!

About Ian

I started playing guitar originally in 1991. I picked up bass and ukulele (and then over the ensuing years, gradually a plethora of other instruments, such as voice, drums, piano, and harp). I started teaching in 2001 throughout the Chicagoland area. First in music stores, then schools, then people

Excellent!

First lesson was great. It took a little time setting up and getting to know each other. For a first lesson, I came away with some very useful information on a song I was having a problem with. I like the direction it is going. Looking forward to the next lesson.
Krista S.
Well hello there budding musician- I started taking ukulele lessons with nearly zero previous experience and little idea what to expect a few months ago. As a teacher, Ian is extremely patient, accommodating, and attentive, but remains very much human throughout the whole process. His years spent teaching across instruments, ages, and levels of expertise make for a trustworthy experience. Definitely recommend.

Online Bass Guitar Teacher

I teach both electric and upright bass. My focus is on a healthy and sustainable technique, ensuring fluidity in your playing with minimal strain on your body. Whether you're playing folk, reggae, funk, or metal; fingerstyle, or with a pick, I can help you sound better, play longer, more imaginatively, and more comfortably, and have more fun.

I've been playing folk, country, and rock guitar since 1995, and played upright bass, banjo, and rhythm guitar in gigging old-time bands for ten years. I currently play bass and sing in a cover band, and release original music and collaborations on major streaming platforms.

About Dan

I've been playing music since I was five years old (so, over 35 years now), beginning my 'stage career' as a saxophonist in school bands, then playing guitars, keyboards, accordions, mandolins, banjo, and bass in a variety of live acts throughout my adult life. I've made (as of January 2020) 16

Study of the Electric Bass. Technique, groove, rhythm, playing in a band and with a drummer, and ultimately, live performance. The lessons may go in any stylistic direction, from Jazz to Pop and Rock, and whichever subject we study, we will look at the role of the bass in that particular music.

Ramiro is a really chill guy, and he teaches me at a comfortable pace, yet challenging me at the same time. He helped me fix my bad habits and creates fun exercises to do for technical stuff so I don't get bored. Definitely would recommend !

I highly recommend Paul if you are interested in getting better at the bass!"

"Awesome Instructor

I have been studying the bass with Andrew for just over two years with a concentration on Jazz theory. Andrew uses a step by step approach geared to my learning style - we have switched directions several times. Andrew's attention to detail and his desire for me to learn the right way is more than impressive. There have been lessons where I have not played a note but instead focused on reviewing different concepts. I'm fifty-seven years old and things don't come as easy as they use to and I really appreciate Andrew's patience and availability. I highly recommend Andrew for someone who is serious about learning to play the bass."

"More then just bass lessons!

I went in to lessons with Peter looking for some review on theory and notation reading but I received much more. When I asked for a lesson on a specific subject he addressed exactly what I was looking for, as well as a quick history of the topics that we discussed. The combination of playing the bass, learning music theory, and music history, made these lessons very unique and a lot of fun for me. I would recommend Peter to any musician who likes a well rounded approach to music."
