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

Private Bass Guitar Teacher

Looking to teach students whatever they want to learn whatever style of music. Can also teach music theory, scales, improvisation. Basically I want to cater to the student and teach him or her whatever they most want to learn. I find that I want to provide the the best experience for the student and that he enjoys wanting to learn music. I have been playing guitar and bass since I was 9 years old and now I am 30, multiple bands, symphony, and saxophone in band in school. So I can teach jazz theory, how to read music, but mostly I just want it to be a fun experience for my students.

About Max

I like working with all different age groups teaching them in a way where they can go and learn to play their favorite songs. I can also teach music theory but I find that with kids it is more exciting for them to learn how to play the type of music they are into. Once we have established that we

"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!"

"I had played bass for a few years, and decided I wanted to take lessons when I felt stuck. It was fun, but I didn't really have a focus on bass I was excited about. I found that with Kellen. He really focused on rhythm and grooving with the drummer and I got hooked. I highly recommend him, especially if you need to work on your groove!"

"To play off what Chaz said, I'm a recovering trumpet player who initially tried my hand at the guitar about 5 years ago. Corey quickly figured out that my talent and background were better suited to the bass. There's been no turning back. Corey's a great teacher! He's always patient, he makes you work, and you enjoy the process. I'd give him more than 5 stars if I could!!"

What is an Acoustic Bass Guitar? A Look at the Instrument 

If you’ve ever seen or heard an MTV Unplugged concert, you’ve probably seen and heard an acoustic bass guitar. This is a hollow body instrument that is the size of an acoustic guitar, but has the sound of a bass. In the 1980s and 1990s, rock bands would perform their electric guitar songs with acoustic guitars, and bassists could be heard or seen playing these instruments that are not too common in the world of music.  But if they made it all the way to the MTV screens for decades, why h …
