I play bass guitar as a member of "The Morris Oakley Band", a 5 piece classic rock cover band. My knowledge of music theory translates perfectly to the bass.

Joe is amazing when he gives vocal lessons. His examples are spot on. His ability to read into your strengths and weaknesses helps you to customise your lesson and focus on those aspects that'll give you quick and sustainable results. Thank you Joe.
Katelyn B.
So far my daughter is pleased and is looking forward to working with Joe. She has only had 1 lesson so far but it was smooth sailing and all went well.
Kyle A.
As someone who was nervous and horrible at singing Joe made me feel comfortable and confident.

I just had my first upright bass lesson with Charles. Playing an instrument, when you know how, is one of the most fun things you can do, But getting lessons can be stressful. This was relaxing, pleasant and fun. Stress free. And I learned a lot. I can't wait to get back on that bass and practice this stuff.
Jamella G.
Very patient and knowledgeable. I had never played an instrument before and had just been playing around with my bass prior to the lesson. I learned a lot and improved over the course of the lesson. I’m looking forward to working with Charles again!

I love to help others discover the joy of playing the bass! I believe every person is musical and everyone has the ability to learn to play an instrument, no matter how young or old.

Our lessons will explore the concept of music as a language, and together we will work to build a musical foundation with the student's goals in mind. Lessons will focus on the student's musical goals and aspirations, and be personally designed for each student's skill and confidence level. We will utilize your favorite music to learn the basics of music theory in a low stress environment, and begin training in the art of group performance.

Feel free to send me a message with any questions. I look forward to working with you!

Phoebe
I highly recommend Josh to anyone who wants to begin or improve their bass skills. He has so much passion and knowledge to share, and he does so in a way that makes you feel entirely at ease. The way he explains music theory and playing techniques/exercises makes things so simple to understand and work with, even as a total beginner. Knowledge and proficiency aside, he's also a joy to learn from and talk to! Every time I have a lesson I feel more inspired and motivated than before. My only complaint is I wasn't learning from him sooner!
Ken
Josh is exceptional in playing bass guitar. His overall demeanor and musical prowess, coupled with his enthusiasm of constantly expanding his abilities, only adds to his reputation of being an excellent teacher. I highly recommend him!
Katrina
It has been great learning about music from Josh! His thirst of learning all he can about music and his passion for music is incredible. He is a very down to earth instructor and I look forward to learning more from him.

I have been playing electric bass for 8 years and upright bass for 7. I have played bass in both jazz and rock bands, with some experience in classical. With the first lesson, we will go over the string names and playing with the right hand. In the next lessons we will work on the left hand and putting them together.

Bass Guitar is the sweet spot between rhythm and melody. Learning that bass is not just a low-end guitar, but a pivot between the drummer and guitarist(s) in the band, you'll find yourself listening to and playing music from an all new, entirely unique perspective. I've been playing bass for 15 years, and have found of my session work as a bass player. Being able to keep the beat while enhancing and shaping the melody of a song is key, and on top of various techniques, that will be the focus of our lessons.

I feel lucky we found Dave! My son who is 11 yo was having a hard time with his other piano teacher. Dave is patient, friendly and encouraging. What I really love is that Dave notices where my son is having a problem and comes up with exercises to work on that issue!
Julian
Dave is a great teacher and has helped me for 2 years whenever I have a problem he takes time out of the lesson to help me on a specific instruction. He pushes me to do better but we still go at a place we’re I am comfortable.

My kids loved Dave and can’t wait for him to come back!

"I am really lucky to have found Al. I am just learning my instrument as an adult and have tried three different teachers (as well as self-managed lessons) before Al. Why I am enjoying my lessons with Al so much is because he brings energy to the session, he encourages questions, he's ready (even excited) to dig deeper into the why of what I'm learning. He challenges you to get the basics and get them right, but he's also willing to indulge in a student's curiosity and let me take the lesson where I want to do as well. All this means I am developing a lot faster than I did when I tried to learn on my own. I'd highly recommend giving Al a try."
