Private Bass Guitar Teacher

I focus on playing bass like a bass player and not as a guitar player that plays bass just because he can't find anybody else to do it in the band. I teach mainly using examples and talk a lot about how a bass fits in with other players.

Frankie helped me with my clarinet tone within the first 15 minutes of the first lesson, and gave me many more helpful playing tips throughout the hour. He was really interested in what my goals were. Looking forward to many more lessons with Frankie.

Online Bass Guitar Teacher

I have a good 4 years of experience using my band performance guitar abilities, and knowledge of music theory/production towards bass technique and practice. I understand the role a bass should play in most pop/funk/soul/rock/reggae/alternative/blues settings, and I work with students on right hand finger technique, holding rhythm and staying in the pocket, theory and scales, and learning songs is a great benchmark to cover all of those essentials.

About Juan

I am an experienced musician, singer, and teacher. I have six years of performing and touring experience, and six years teaching private lessons as well as at the School Of Rock in Ballwin, MO. I like to work with my students on their specific needs/interests/desires as singers and musicians. Wheth

Shawn is very well informed on music theory. I have had discussions with him on numerous occasions, quite enlightening.

He is a very patient teacher and really goes the extra mile when it comes to explaining things I'm having trouble with.

My daughter became interested in playing the bass guitar after seeing a friend perform in the Jazz Band concert at her school. After asking around, Shawn came highly recommended. He was nice, knowledgeable, dedicated to teaching and I was impressed with how kept my daughter engaged and motivated. He is someone I recommend highly.

"Alfred has an infectious enthusiasm for the bass guitar that carries over in his lessons. I wanted to learn the slap and pop techniques of my favorite bass players including Marcus Miller and others. Alfred is a skilled percussive bass player who is fluent in these techniques. He is a patient teacher who will introduce new techniques and concepts at your own pace, whether you are a beginner or more advanced player. The lessons always go over the time allotment and we often have to force ourselves to “call it a night” and put down our bass guitars. The bottom line is that I’m having fun and making good progress. Online lessons have their place, but you don’t get the feedback and accountability that comes from taking in-person lessons. I can highly recommend Alfred to anyone who is serious about learning how to properly play bass guitar."

"I had my first lesson with Theresa today. I am very impressed. She's very friendly and has a deep knowledge of bass and music in general - she showed me some finger exercises for flexibility, we discusses various picking/plucking techniques and went over general bass playing basics (scales, metronome work) for me to practice. We also had a discussion about how great we think John Entwistle is :)

I am very pleased and look forward to growing as a musician under her tutelage."
