About Geoff

I totally enjoyed my class with Geoff. We immediately started my lesson with tuning the ukulele. Then we went over the cords and strumming. I have been researching on playing the ukulele and his explanation on the strumming was a lot better than the book. He is teaching me how to play by listening to the notes which is great because I would be able to play the Hawaiian music for my hula classes. In addition, his studio is only a 5 minute drive from my house, which means I don’t have to deal with traffic.

I had taken guitar lessons as a kid, but hadn't played in many years. During our first lesson, John figured out my skill level and started the lessons on the right track. I've enjoyed our lessons and the "assignments" he has given me, which are just what I wanted.
Chris
Great first lesson. Just the right level of difficulty. John is very patient and helpful.
Maya A.
Awesome first lesson. Friendly teacher. I have no musical talent but I was playing chords by the end of the first lesson.

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 like playing funk, jazz, rock, pop and Motown bass. My favorite players are Jaco Pastorious, Pino Palladino, James P. Jameson and John Paul Jones.

Pain free playing, good tone, dexterity in the fingers, great time, and learning style appropriate techniques (slapping, double thumbing, fingerpicking, harmonics etc.) are what my bass lessons are all about.

Jo
I started learning Ukulele with Kevin and then picked up Guitar lately, Kevin has a systematic way of teaching, instead of covering each and every chords, he summarizes them by different shapes, and also their variations, so you can memorize the basics and find their "relative" chords easier. He also taught music theories, how each chord is formed, and if you want to play a specific song, he's also glad to help on finding the exact chord and transfer them into different notes that suits you. Definitely have your notebook ready since there's a lot to learn. The harder thing for myself is with the online class, it's not as efficient as a face-to-face one, I also tend to be less motivated to practise but you ought to just find your own motivation!
Jennifer Closson
I have been involved in singing for many years now and I can tell you that Kevin knows what he is doing with his special skills teaching voice and guitar. I feel lucky to have found him and I hope to continue learning from him for a long time.
Anthony
Kevin offers helpful advice and insight. An instructor with a deep understanding of music, he demonstrates a great ability to guide new students. He brought clarity to problems I experienced as a new guitar player. I highly recommend inviting Kevin into your music journey.

Right from the first lesson, you're already given homework and expectations to meet and ONLY because Ben absolutely does his best to help and support your goals and what you intend to accomplish in the future. He wants you to succeed. :)"

"There is no finer teacher anywhere than Greg!
Having never played any instrument before , Greg took away any worries or anxiety I might have had. His patience and vast expertise with stringed instruments is truly amazing. Students learn at their own pace not the instructors. Greg has students making actual music very early in the process. Being able to actually play something right away is highly motivating and more importantly Fun !
Greg’s personality and his amazing talent makes it very easy to engage in the process . Having taken Bass Guitar lessons for several years with Greg , I can’t imagine what it might have been like with another teacher. Greg is an amazing instructor !
You won’t be disappointed!"

"Dustin Newbold began teaching my son guitar lessons when my son was 10 years old and continued for the past 6 years. He taught him to play the electric guitar, the acoustic and then the bass guitar. Dustin taught him tabs, chords and reading music. He became affluent in each of them.

My daughter began taking violin lessons with Dustin and then took trumpet lessons. She progressed so much in such a short amount of time.

Dustin has a tremendous love for music and is such a talented musician. His love for music is apparent and quickly spread to both of my children. He chooses music that they like to play and that keeps their interest and causes them to practice without prompting. I have always been amazed at how quickly they advanced with their talent and knowledge and how much they enjoyed going to their lessons. My only regret is that he moved away from our area. I would highly recommend Dustin Newbold to anyone of any age seeking to begin learning a musical instrument or advancing in their own personal knowledge."
