Mark has been a great teacher for this adult beginner! I take lessons in clawhammer banjo and ukulele with him, and his easy-going nature and skill in identifying ways to improve make it a joyful experience! Highly recommend.

Mr. Sylvester is one of the greatest. He is not just an amazing guitarist, but he is also very kind. He treats people with so much respect. He speaks to me and my mom so nicely. He is very patient. He has a deep knowledge of music and knows how to get the most out of even the least talented people (like me!). He doesn't ever get mad if you make a mistake or forget to bring your music notes. We were so lucky to find Mr. Sylvester.
Virginia
Mark is a talented musician who plays and teaches multiple stringed instruments. His lessons are always informative and supportive. They are driven by the student’s interest, so anything you want o learn— styles of music, how to do a particular technique, music theory— you can bring to class. And every now and then he organizes a recital— terrifying but great practice!

Mona
Damien explains the concept very well and asks questions to find out how much I already know. He tailors the classes to my abilities (I used to play piano and guitar) and interests. I am inspired to practise the techniques so I can play the music I chose. Just my third lesson and Damien is already introducing “improvisation” and that I was ready as long as I practise my scales. Being taught by Damien is exhilarating. Very blessed.
Ben Snyder
I really enjoyed my lesson and am very excited about learning to play the banjo and taking more lessons!
David R.
Damien does a great job of mixing theory with practical application.

In each of our lessons, we will dive deep into learning the bass and mastering theory. We will go over easy rock tunes for you to go and start jamming, go over soloing and advanced chord progressions, provide the tools for you to solo in any key or in any genre, I will teach you advanced theory and the steps you need to take in order to become a performing musician, and I will give you the tools you need to play any genre or any song by ear. I will make sure to get back to you in at least 24-48 hours to set up a date for a lesson. Can't wait to jam with you!

Online Bass Guitar Teacher

I’m currently working on my masters in jazz studies at UTA and I’m privately studying with Brian Mulholland (played with Maynard Ferguson) and sometimes Eddie Gomez (Bill Evans bassist of 11 years). I also studied with Jerry Watts Jr (John Daversa big band and countless others) in Los Angeles, along with Andre Berry (played with Marcus Miller), Steve Billman, Joey Heredia, Ralph Humphrey, and many others.
I’m well versed in jazz, rock, funk, pop, metal, technique, sight-reading, music theory, and would be happy to teach whatever you’d like. If you want some general beginner lessons we can work on technique and theory and reading and incorporate music that you’re into. If you’re looking for something more advanced I can see where you’re at and recommend some good things to work on.
I’m really flexible and down to earth, fun and easy to get along with, and I’m very passionate about music and sharing that with other people.
I look forward to teaching you!

About Cody

I’m originally from Los Angeles where I studied at L.A. Academy of Music and played in many different bands all over Los Angeles. I got stuck in a good sales job that I really didn’t like so I decided to further my studies in music and am now working on my masters degree in jazz studies from UTA.
