Nathan is kind and encouraging. My son is enjoying the lessons and making progress towards playing tapas and reveille. He sounds good!! Online classes are convenient to add into a busy schedule.

This is the first lesson I got to listen to of my son working with Nathan. Usually I'm not home from work. I am really impressed with how much he was able to help my son improve so quickly. I wish we had started this much sooner.

He is really patient and kind, and he got playing songs in days.

Jason tailors the course to a student's individual learning pace and needs. There is also a good combination between theory and learning cords to play a song. Technique is emphasized to build good habits and a foundation for future growth.

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

I've been teaching Bass Guitar for about 15 years. I typically use the Hal Leonard Bass Guitar Method by Ed Freidland books 1, 2 and 3. Great set of books, Covers all aspect of bass playing. Early on, I like to introduce some Blues patterens for the 12 bar blues. These are easy to play but sound great so the students really like them. They give the student an idea of what they will be playing like. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

Eric is infinitely patient. He's really attentive to detail and relaxed about it.
Rose
I’m a non-traditional music student, so I was a little nervous starting music at such an “advanced” age. Eric makes every lesson interesting, but, more importantly, he makes them fun. We laugh a lot and I’ve learned so much in the short time I’ve been taking lessons. If he’s this good with an old lady, he must be fabulous with children. I highly recommend Eric for any aged student. Call him!

Open and individualized lessons will teach each student in a unique fashion to fit them best. Chords, theory and musical reading will be the main focus of these lessons. My individualized approach works well for many students so that they learn what they want, how they want, and see the results that they specifically are looking for.

Students can expect to learn anything from basic chords to advanced theory and improvisational techniques on their instrument.

Although bass guitar is a secondary instrument for me, I have always taken much enjoyment in playing and teaching it. I have been playing bass for nearly as long as guitar and feel that it is a very important instrument that could be just as rewarding to play as any other instrument. My mastery over bass comes more from my time spent as a guitarist, however I do understand many nuances behind playing bass and can instruct you confidently on the correct/required methods as far as this instrument is concerned.

"All around wonderful teacher

Marcus is quite the gifted teacher. By far the best I've had the pleasure to aspire under. He is very easy to understand, and doesn't overwhelm you, taking time on the little things (the most important). He creates an atmosphere that is encouraging to learn in. We all know those teachers that create a stressful environment that inhibits progressive learning, as well as frustration in yourself. Marcus is certainly the opposite. He is also quite easy to communicate with--Creating lesson plans, setting goals, etc... In summation, a professional and a friend I would recommend to anyone and everyone."

"I've been going to Eric weekly for over a year and he's been great. I've always wanted to play an instrument but never took the plunge and I'm very happy I did. He's super patient with me, and takes the time to make sure I can play real songs. We spent a lot of time at the beginning getting me to play normal songs instead of diving into theory first which I really appreciated. I could see myself starting to play. We added heavy doses of theory into the class throughout the year and now I understand how music is made. I'm a slow learner and need to practice more on my own but now I can actually play!"

He will go at your pace and make sure he is focusing on what you really want to accomplish. not to mention he is an actual gigging musician so he plays a lot. If you want to play in a band or play with a group he has feedback on that information for you as well!
I personally don't think you could go wrong with a teacher like Andrew."
