Bass is about rhythm, but it's also about melody. If a piece of music doesn't have a really catchy or musical bass line, it will almost always feel flat. In our lessons, you'll learn classic bass lines that will show you what makes a really great bass line work. We'll also learn how to come up with your own bass lines to chords, and if you want, how to rip a really righteous solo...

I wanted to learn some Black Sabbath songs for my dad’s birthday and Peter was extremely helpful instructing me to do so. He was extremely patient with me and my lack of rhythm.

Super positive experience. I’m not the most dexterous person in the world, and peter is super patient and clear in his instruction. 10/10

Peter is hands down the best teacher ever! I had such a hard time learning the basics of acoustic, but he taught me so many tricks and made the learning process smooth. I feel like a pro now! Will be continuing learning from him!

Jeegar P.
Jason is a fantastic teacher and really easy to work with. We focused on fundamentals and understanding the fret board. This was a new approach for me as he weeded out bad habits and taught me proper form. It took a month or so, but when i was able to develop an ease with the fret board and spacial awareness with my strumming hand, I was able to navigate the guitar with so much more confidence.

Highly recommend working with Jason as he is patient and wants you to become a strong musician instead of learning a few songs really well. Also, he is upbeat and provides good feedback so you continue to develop and grow.

I've been going to Jason for a few months now and I have significantly improved my playing ability and increased my music knowledge. Lessons are tailored to what I want to learn and there has been noticeable improvement even over a short period of time.

As far as specific methods, it depends on the student. Everyone is unique and I find it essential to cater to each individual's learning styles, abilities, pace and personalities in a unique fashion. I will find the appropriate approach and learning material for each student, and apply the appropriate curriculum for them. I will provide all the essentials for getting a solid foundation, while using the proper motivation and patience, as well as keeping it fun and interesting.

Really enjoyed my personalized lessons with Eric! He helped me with finding the rhythm in some of my original songs. He is very encouraging and affirming.

Great instructor; always prepared and patient. He works towards my goals always.
Ben
Eric is the real deal as a guitar teacher. I personally play the guitar myself, but as any parent knows when it comes to teaching your own child there is going to be some resistance no matter what! Lol. Eric is very well educated in music and has the rapport to teach beginners as well as advanced students. My son looks forward to his time with Eric and considers him a friend as well! In closing, if your looking for an instructor that has a solid music background that can channel that knowledge into your child or self, look no further!

"I loved my lessons with Omar! He's very knowledgable, and not just about the instrument but music in general. He worked with me for about 7 months to help achieve my goal of learning to improvise on the bass guitar. Omar is very easy to talk to and very funny. He knew how to take complicated music theory and really break it down so that I could understand it better. I left each lesson with an assignment, a technique or a song to practice what we learned in that week's lesson.

I feel very comfortable with being able to be at a jam session and play along with the rest of the group. He taught me how to come up with licks using factorials, how to create a solo using modes and adding some flavor to the solos with techniques such as pop and slap or changing the tempo.

Thank you, Omar, for being such a great teacher! I feel much more confident in myself as a bass player because of the time you spent with me and all of the knowledge you departed onto me. I am very appreciative of you for that - thanks again!"

"I started taking lessons from Dustin Newbold my Sophomore year of high school. I took his guitar class and learned the basics then moved on to bass guitar. He went at a pace that was not only easy to learn and memorize, but also seemed more exciting than what I would have thought learning an instrument would be. After the first year of guitar lessons, Mr. Newbold recommended that I move up from guitar class to actually being in the school band. The fact that he took me from knowing nothing about music, to me to joining the school band was an amazing feeling. This opened many doors for me, including a full ride scholarship to college for band and choir. I would highly recommended Mr. Newbold as a Music Instructor."

"Most Excellent Teacher

I feel very grateful to have found and now be taught by Jesse. Despite my considerable age beyond his, he treats me as a peer and has kept me on my toes with learning tasks. Further, lessons are actually fun as well as challenging and about once a quarter, we have "band night" where many of his active students come together to socialize and to "jam" together.
I've had other teachers in my life (I'm in my 60's) and Jesse is by far the most intelligent, skillful and enthusiastic.
My only regret is that I didn't find him sooner."

"A Great Musician and Bass Guitar Instructor!

Jon is one of the best instructor's I've come to know. Although I've only been taking lessons from him since February 2013; he has proven to be a true musician and a great teacher. His teaching style is relaxed which removes the pressure from learning how to play which allows you to absorb more instruction. He instills confidence in you while you're trying to play the instrument which motivates you to want to learn more. We even have a "jam" session at the end of my lesson which is really fun. I enjoy taking lessons from Jon and am sure that every who does (and plan to) share the same feeling. Good job Jon!"

Looking for a way to make your bass lines move? Bass guitar teacher Miller W. shares his three step plan to creating walking bass lines...
