My daughter (9), son (7) and myself are all taking lessons and Cris Is able to adapt for all our learning needs and makes it fun along the way too.

I had my first lesson today. Cris is the real deal. He is an excellent guitar player and was able to coax what little skill and talent I possess into a formidable lesson early on. I'll be booking my Son along with myself and returning. We are blessed to have someone in the Rancho Bernardo/Rancho Penaquitos area like Cris!

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.

Private Bass Guitar Teacher

As a bass player in a punk rock band I learned to apply the concepts I know on the guitar over to bass and slowly started introducing intervals and right and left hand techniques that are not as common on the guitar. A few of my bass students are professionals and have applied to big name music schools after taking my class.

Peter is very easygoing and fun to work with. I was very pleasantly surprised and impressed how much we accomplished in our first 45 minute lesson. Look forward to continuing lessons with him!
Brenda N.
My first lesson was a lot of fun! Peter is great at helping you feel at ease and comfortable. I was extremely nervous and he was great with making me feel like I was right at home with a friend! I also appreciate that he is not rigid in his teaching techniques or format. He caters your lesson to what your learning desires are and is very good at recognizing your skill level (or lack of 😁). I also appreciate how encouraging he is. I’m super excited to continue on my Saxophone journey!

My child really enjoyed his first lesson with peter. Peter is a very talented musician and he made the lesson fun! My child seemed to learn a lot from just one lesson with peter and he enjoys practicing what he learned at home.

"As a beginning, self-taught bass player of four months, I wanted to find a teacher who could analyze and critique my playing. I scheduled five lessons with David over a time period of three months. David was instrumental in analyzing and critiquing bad techniques and habits I acquired. He very thoroughly emphasized proper fretting technique and finger positioning; exercises were given that helped me obtain full tonal quality and efficient fretboard navigation skills. We also reviewed basic theory, scale modes, rhythmic weight, pentatonics and arpeggios; seminal knowledge for the beginner.

A technical type player, David has excellent playing skills as well as a comprehensive knowledge of theory and its practical application. He is a good listener and showed a genuine interest in helping me achieve my goals. I definitely can see an improvement in my playing skills....playing more confidently and efficiently.

Highly recommended......."

"Greg is an amazing person and instructor. Our son has been practicing, consistently, with him for a couple of years, and he loves playing more and more every week. Our son's first lesson with Greg was when he was around 3 years old. It was lots of fun. Then, when our son showed interest in really getting into playing, we came back to Greg. Our son's excitement about practicing with and studying under Greg appears to us to come from the joy in playing and variety of music that Greg brings in every session. We are constantly impressed at how much our son learns and enjoys the learning and enjoys having Greg as the instructor."

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 …
