Patrick teaches my 14 year old daughter drums and is so amazing with her! Kept her engaged and advancing even on a virtual platform, and listened to her preferences but still brought great ideas and direction to each lesson.

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.

My personal pedagogy is a combination of the basic technical and theoretical aspects of the instrument and what music the student is interested. It is paramount that students of all levels are learning their instrument through performing their favorite music. All necessary technical exercises can be adapted to a specific genre of music. I have many resources and a vast library of literature available for my lessons that I have compiled through my years at Berklee studying with the world's greatest bassists and theorists.

My main goal in every lesson is to be as time efficient as possible. We start with introducing new warm up exercises or new approaches to playing the instrument with confidence and facility. This is important for students of all levels so we can learn the correct ways to execute our favorite music in the most efficient way possible. From there I always spend the most time on the student's goals, like learning a new song or perhaps theory and improvisation. My ...

Brody was there at my most important formative years as a guitarist. His ideas and methods took what I had learned on my own and helped me turn it into something cohesive and musical. I would highly recommend lessons from Brody.

"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."
