Private Bass Guitar Teacher

I earned MM in Jazz Performance, Bass Guitar Major, in 1993, and play/teach lessons for Bass Guitar since that time. My prospective students will receive rigorous training in both Bass Guitar performance and musicianship focused on the specifics of the subject of study. The level that we would begin lessons with will depend on the student's abilities and potentials. We will strive to create professional and friendly working atmosphere, and will begin lessons with careful assessment of the student's performing abilities; we will also set our goals, based on both individual expectations of students and on professional experience of the instructor. My teaching philosophy lies on three aspects; on patience with people; on love for the subject of teaching/study; and on rigorous training, offered to people, for their benefit and general musical development.

Charlie is the most patient and musical music teacher I have ever experienced and I am old! His approach to teaching is first rate. He is incredibly knowledgeable about all forms of music.
Larry B
This guy is incredible. He creates a safe space where you feel inspired to improvise and experiment with music. He showed me songs that changed my music taste and playing style completely. The best part of learning with him is that it feels like you are jamming with a good friend. He not only is an incredible musician but also a great mentor. I have only good things to say about Charlie
Kevin
Charlie McClaren is one of the greatest music teachers I've ever had. Learning music with him never felt like a chore, rather it was a journey we shared. He's patient and understanding, but he'll make sure you understand the music thoroughly. He showed me that music was more than an art form, it's a lens you see the world through. I can't recommend Charlie enough, no matter where you are on your musical journey, he'll take you to the next level!

I have nothing but good things to say about my lessons with Ray, he's very easy going and he teaches you the theory behind the music as you're progressing so you get the full experience, he's a great teacher and I look forward to more lessons with him

Ray is a very knowledgeable and skilled piano instructor. He's especially good at finding a balance between making sure that I understand concepts already covered, and challenging me with new ones. I love that he teaches music theory concepts and shows real-life examples of how it's used in music genres that I'm interested in. He also makes "dry" material much more palatable by showing me how to practice things like scales and chords in novel ways that keeps things interesting. I recommend him highly to adult beginners.

Online Bass Guitar Teacher

Bass guitar is the foundation of many modern musical ensembles. From jazz to rock, it's popular and reliable. There is always need for a solid bassist.

Vince began playing bass as a teenager. He first learned by ear; transcribing a lot of classic rock (Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Rolling Stones, etc...). Although Vince primarily studied trumpet in college, he continued playing bass with off-campus bands. Vince applied what he was learning in music school to his bass playing. He is a fully literate bassist.

Vince is the bassist and musical director for Phloyd: A Pink Floyd Tribute band based in Philadelphia. He's recorded bass on a few of his solo albums including Syzygy and Sound Plan. He played bass with the John Byrne Band and still subs occasionally when the current bassist is unavailable. For three semesters, Vince taught bass at Rock to the Future, an after school music program in Philadelphia. There he taught all the bass students; focusing on technique, reading, and ...

About Vince

Vince privately teaches trumpet, guitar, electric bass guitar, arranging, composition, music theory, ear training, and improvisation to students of all ages and levels. “Basically he’s the go-to cross-genre horn-blowing utility man of the Philly scene” (John Vettese, The Key). Vince is a profess

Cameron is an excellent teacher for me. I am 11 years old and have been playing for almost a year with him. He is patient and makes me stretch to be a better guitarist. He takes time to find songs at my level of learning and accommodates my tastes in music. I would recommend him for anyone who is interested in playing guitar.
Kim K.
I enjoyed my first lesson with Cameron. He explained things clearly so I could understand. Can't wait for my next lesson.
Pat A.
A solid teacher with a lot of experience

Cameron is great at tailoring the lessons to my musical taste without compromising the theory, basics and fundamentals.
I have been taking lessons for one year and will not go elsewhere anytime soon. His vast musical knowledge helps merge the theory with concrete examples. No question remains unanswered.

Mr. Blackwell constantly challenges you to go further with every lesson. The best part of the class is the jam sessions! I love playing songs being the lead at times and a support to the band.
