Private Bass Guitar Teacher

I've been playing bass since I was 11. I have a degree in jazz performance so improvisation plays a key role in my lessons, but am fully capable of teaching any style. If you take lessons with me, we will certainly cover the basics of two finger style grooves, but can easily dive into advanced techniques like two hand tapping, artificial harmonics, chordal playing, three finger techniques, and slapping and popping.

About Tommy

My name is Tommy. I've been playing bass and guitar since I was 11 years old. When I was in high school, I won my school's Duke Ellington Jazz Performance Award my junior year. Around this time I began to work at my neighborhood's local lesson shop Let's Play Music! off of W Broad Street in Falls C

Private Bass Guitar Teacher

David enjoys teaching students from all different backgrounds and levels of proficiency. Whether you are just starting out or a virtuoso shredder in the making, he is happy to teach you! Over all, he is fairly laid back, as long as you practice. He usually combines work with reading off of the treble clef (what he likens to "eating your vegetables." You may not want to do it, but it will make you a healthier musician!) with learning more popular songs (or songs the student says they would like to learn) through tablature and chord charts, depending on the style of the song.

David is also very pro music theory. He usually incorporates music theory into the curriculum in conjunction with the material already being discussed. He is also very knowledgeable about composition/songwriting, and if the student is interested in learning more about this area, he is happy to share what he knows!

About David

David is a successful singer/songwriter/guitarist out of Fairfax, VA. He has a bachelor's degree in Music with a concentration in composition from Salisbury University, where he also studied jazz and classical guitar . In the 25 years he has been performing (20 of those professionally) and playin

I was surprised at how easy it was to connect with Aaron. His diving right in was fun as we got into playing music from the first moment.

Aaron knows how to work with kids. After 30 minutes my 6 yo came out confident and ready to play!! He doesn’t realize that he still is terrible because he at least knows one chord!! Lol!

"Very friendly, Got to know my son and what his interests were for playing Bass as well as what he already had learned. Asked the direction of his music and what he liked. Gave him some basic things to start the juices of music flowing. 2nd lesson was amazing because Kyle started applying what he taught my son as well as jamming with drum beats and guitar to give my son a real feel to playing and learning to apply what he was taught."

For me, when Peter is playing the drums or Piano after he has given me the structures/scales makes it very easy to learn. Very patient and encouraging. Ask yourself- Why aren’t YOU taking lessons with Peter?"

"I've only had a couple of lessons so far, but am very, very pleased. Instead of being the next guy to show up, and Jonathan trying to remember who I am and what I'm here for, Jonathan actually spent time through the week looking for resources that would help me and what I want to accomplish. While I spend 30 minutes a week in the actual lesson, and I spend some time throughout the week practicing, Jonathan is actually investing time for the lesson outside of the lesson, and that's really important to me.

Jonathan has a very diverse background, and experience with lots and lots of instruments and musical styles, which all help in the lessons - strategies from concert bass that electric bass players can incorporate, chord inversions common to classical music which can help "pop" type progressions to move forward better, and places where it's appropriate to play funk or Latin styles in straight-ahead folk sorts of tunes. I highly recommend Jonathan, even if just to sit and talk about music for a couple of hours."
