Private Bass Guitar Teacher

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 ...

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.

Vasiliy is great! He's an amazing teacher, I know this because teachers usually get frustrated with me very quickly(I'm a slow processor and have some learning difficulties), but Vasiliy explained things in a way I could understand and never expressed anything but positivity and patience when I did get a bit confused or took extra time to understand something.
Overall, he's a really nice guy with a patient, calm, yet enthusiastic disposition, who is clearly very experienced in music and life in general. I'm an extremely nervous person and it usually takes me a long time to relax around a new person, but he's really chill and I felt pretty comfortable within a few minutes of talking.

I went into my first lesson frankly pretty terrified, and with almost no direction, and I left feeling uplifted with a clear path for pursuing music. The lesson exceeded my expectations by far, I would recommend him to anyone.

Rodrigo is an excellent instructor! He explains everything thoroughly and makes the accordion less intimidating to play.
Barbara Judd
I have been taking accordion lessons from Rodrigo for about 6 months. I had never been successful playing a couple of instruments from long ago. I have now made great progress from Rodrigo's instructions. He helps me understand music theory, reading music, simplifying music, and how to charge my musical working memory. I have long been a collector of music. This is the first time I've felt progress and success.

I teach beginning and intermediate Bass Guitar. The bass guitar is tuned the same as the four bottom strings of the guitar only one octave below. The fingering is the same as the guitar. I've played bass guitar in rock and pop bands and in country bands. Playing bass is a fun experience.
