About Matt

I have been teaching guitar to students on the East and West Coasts of the United States for over 20 years. I was always interested in music and made my first “recording” at the age of 2 and a half. I got serious about playing the guitar when I was 10 years old after hearing the legendary Randy Rho

Private Bass Guitar Teacher

The bassist of a band is, in my opinion, the unsung hero of most ensembles. That’s why I try to instill in every bass student a sense of who they are in the ensemble and the importance of their role.
I would say that I teach bass guitar from the perspective of an upright bassist, that is I focus on getting the student to learn the correct pitch names (rather than fret numbers) of the positions they play in. I think that is one of the secrets to becoming a versatile bassist in any genre of music.

About David

My name is David and I'm a professional musician who just moved to North Austin. I came from Cincinnati, where I went to the University of Cincinnati College Conservatory of Music, taught dozens of students at all levels and played regular gigs every weekend.

I searched for an excellent upright bass teacher for a good while. Then I found David Lloyd. David is patient, humorous, friendly, knowledgeable and very professional. He carefully taught me all the necessary groundwork to enable me to continue on my own for a while. In a few months I will, without question, continue my studies with David. I would, without hesitation, recommend David to anyone interested in seriously studying the Upright Bass.

David is awesome with kids, very calm and works well with those who need a little more encouragement. We’ve been with him for 3 months and are happy with the progress.

Private Bass Guitar Teacher

I've been playing bass since 2003, tackling everything from metal to jazz to chamber orchestral & band music. When teaching bass, I like to cover as many areas as I can to ensure my students are as well-rounded as they would like to be (& then some). We will discuss proper bass techniques, writing walking bass lines, reading chord changes, how to achieve good bass tones & gear, etc.

The bass guitar doesn't get a lot of love. That's unfortunate, because playing bass is an incredible feeling. It's a foundational instrument and bringing that sense of stability to a song can make it go from sounding okay to sounding like real music you hear on the radio.

My bass students are taught the foundational skills and techniques, but also the rhythm and feel of playing bass. An instrument with a fairly low barrier to entry, bass is one of the best ways to get playing quickly. Will you pick up the bass today?

Taking lessons with Avi has been a great experience. He has been more than willing to work with my complicated schedule and very obviously cares about teaching. I tried learning guitar off of youtube for a little while but eventually hit a block. Learning with an actual teacher has been a world of difference.

Jake is such a good instructor! He's not just teaching me how to play individual songs, he's getting into the fundamentals of music theory and how music *works*. I learned more in one lesson than I learned in six months trying to figure it out on my own. He's good at finding fun songs at my skill level that push me through to the next level. I look forward to these lessons every week!
Aman Hemnani
Jakob it's a very knowledgeable and patient instructor. It was very easy to talk to him and let him know what I was wanting to learn. He was able to incorporate music theory and technique in a very easy and simple way to understand and work on. Of the different instructors that I've had lessons from, Jakob was my favorite and the one that I gained the most knowledge from. I would definitely recommend him to others. You won't be disappointed!

"I consider myself an intermediate bass player. Learning with Alex has increased my knowledge of the fret board and he knows and plays various styles of music. Which is what I need to increase my vocabulary. He is patient, laid back, fun and a great teacher. He will take the time to make sure you understand what you are playing, give homework, and positive feedback. The only negative thing is that I can't practice in person and all day with Alex. He by far is the best teacher I have ever had. And your crazy if you don't learn alot with this guy!

"Tim came recommended from a friend. I had been playing guitar and bass for close to 20 years, without ever taking a single lesson. I'd been focusing on bass for the last 10 years, and decided that I wanted to take my bass playing to the next level - theory, reading music, etc.

Fast forward a year later, and I'm reading and learning music not only from sheet music, but from jazz charts - something I hadn't even imagined going in. I've gained a new appreciation for the music as a result.

Everyone that knows me well has commented on the improvement in my overall bass playing, from the wife to people who I've spent years jamming with. In short, if you're looking to expand your abilities, you can't go wrong with Tim."

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 …
