I've been teaching The Bass for 17 Years, and have been playing the Bass for 24 years. After teaching 1000's of students, you realize that no student is ever the same. Everyone learns differently. Each student is inspired in a different way. Everyone has different strengths and weaknesses in a multitude of different area's. So weather you starting from scratch, perfecting a solo for new album, learn by ear, or only read music, I can tailor my teaching style and curriculum to you. :)

Chuck Made every step so easy, he's very good at explaining complex ideas in a really simple way.

It seemed like the knew exactly where I was at mentally with learning, and knew my limits, but pushed me to learn what I was actually capable of learning.

Chuck is very knowledgeable, he's been playing professionally for the last 20 years and it shows.

Excellent communicator, Excellent teacher, and explanor, patient with me, even in the times I didn't practice, and I know he could tell.

Very pleasant and easy going demeanor, and top player in MN.

Surprised the cost to go to him was as low as it was. I felt like I got an incredible bargain.

Thanks for Everything Chuck!

About Jesse

I take pride helping students of all ages achieve their music goals, whether it be to shred solos in front of a packed house or play intimate songs for close friends. When teaching young people (ages 7 to 18) I do everything I can to get them passionate about their instrument. There is no greater motivator than fascination. I get kids playing real songs within a few lessons. If a student can play along to their favorite Green Day song within a few weeks, they feel like they can do anything. I skip past the "Mary Had a Little Lamb" phase that puts off so many future rock stars and go straight to the real deal: strumming, solos, and songs. When I teach adults, I identify your goals and create detailed lesson plans to achieve those goals step by step. I strive to be clear, patient, and ...
