Victor P. Kansas City, MO

I've been a bass player most of my life, and have played all genres, from Classical double bass, to Jazz, to Rock, Country... pick a genre, I've probably done at least one show. Yes, I teach slap too. Bass-playing is an art like no other; subtle, not the first instrument that the audience pays attention to, but as a bass player YOU "drive the bus," and YOU are the one who makes the groove.

About Victor

With a Doctor of Musical Arts from the prestigious Indiana University Jacobs School of Music, and 12 years of University music teaching, you will be hard pressed to find a more comprehensive, diverse, and qualified music teacher anywhere. Let me help you create a music lesson experience tailored to YOUR specific interests and needs! One size does NOT fit all, and I have the experience you help you reach your musical goals in a way that focuses on your strengths, while catching you up on those less-strong bits.

Victor is very patient, with us. He is nice and a very good teacher. We have had Victor as our teacher for about 8-9 months now and we have improved so much. FOxtrot is always on time and on a great mood. I could barely play Mary had a little lamb and now I can play Nintendo songs and play the blues.-Luke
Michael F. Pleasant Hill, MO

The bass guitar is amazingly easy to get started with. People are surprised when they are playing a song that they love in the first or second lesson! I can teach you a variety of techniques including jazz, rock, and blues techniques.

About Michael

I love teaching students that love music of absolutely any age! Some of my favorite students are senior citizens starting a new hobby. No matter what the age, I love to see my students faces light up when they realize that they can play music that they love so easily. I can't count the amount of times that my students have told me, "I should have started doing this a long time ago."

About Aaron

How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time! This is how I approach music. Learning to read, play/perform, and write music is a skill that ANYONE can attain and my goal is to help you learn to do it! We will work together one lesson at a time to master skills that are going to a) help you to understand music, b) help you to perform music, c) help you be a successful musician; and I will work with you, whatever level you are at from beginner to professional. My background as a musician is very extensive. I have performed with bands, wind ensembles, orchestras, small ensembles, choirs. The genres I have mastered are Classical, Jazz, Rock, Pop, Country, among many others. My professional resume includes teaching music in the schools and privately, performing with the United States ...

Raul R. Blue Springs, MO

I've been teaching for 8 years and have been playing for 15 years. We can learn together out if a book or based on your own personal learning style and I can develop a lesson plan that is just for you. My philosophy is you tell me what you want to learn and you're gonna know it.

About Raul

I am a follower of all things music. I have been playing the guitar for 14 years now. I have been actively instructing professionally for 7+ years and wouldn't trade it for the world. I am well versed in many styles of music as I have been a session guitarist on many albums on Music Row in Nashville TN. I have a very keen interest in seeing you reach your goals. ¡Hablo espanol!
