Andrea
As an adult learner, I was put at ease and able to work on songs I was interested in right away. Wonderful teaching style.

I've had a great experience with Rick so far. He quickly identified my level of play and has provided good content for me to learn as well as new styles. Very knowledgeable on banjo, I would recommend to anyone looking to improve their banjo skills.

Private Bass Guitar Teacher

I'll help you develop your bass technique, learn the bass lines of your favorite bands and get you ready to play with a live band. If your primary instrument is guitar, like me, I'll help you understand that the bass is NOT a 4-string guitar. : )

About Chris

Chris grew up hearing his dad play guitar around the house and at live shows. He “caught the bug” around age 13 and hasn’t stopped playing since! He’s been teaching guitar since 2003 and received his Bachelor of Arts in Music at North Central University in 2008 where he studied jazz, blues, rock, c

Renee
My 15 year-old son started guitar this summer. He has truly enjoyed working with Chris. Chris is patient and encouraging, as well as being a cool guy that my son looks up to.
Helen
My 13-years old son was reluctant to take music lessons. He had not liked piano (with a different instructor) when he was younger, but agreed to try guitar. Since the first trial lesson, he has been excited to learn more!

Chris is a fun teacher who knows his stuff and who communicates well with both his students and their parents. I have three kids and have found it’s difficult to find a teacher who is responsive to parents + engaging with youth + gifted at music.

His rates are very reasonable for our area. His in-home lesson space is professional and comfortable — I get to sit on a comfy couch and get work done during my son’s weekly lesson. In addition, Chris goes above and beyond to make sure the lessons are meeting our expectations. He tracked down strings for us when we accidentally broke one. He has rescheduled lessons due to our busy schedules. He is genuinely kind and such a pleasure to work with — we couldn’t be more thrilled!
Brian
Our kids have loved working with Chris. He picks songs they're excited to play, teaches them patiently, and has a lot of fun with them. They've made a ton of progress since they started with Chris, and they're always excited to see him!

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.

I’ve been playing bass since I was 10. I can teach how to fill the role of a bassist in a band for a number of genres.

About Mike

Brad
Mike is a gem and true natural when it comes to music education. His passion for music, patience, charismatic personality, and lifelong devotion to learning really shines through during his lessons with my son. In fact, my son enjoyed his weekly music lessons with Mike so much that we booked time for years to come. Finding an instructor like Mike is rare, and I’m excited to have him help grow my son’s musical knowledge in a very accessible way through FaceTime, SO easy! Within a few short lessons my son was already walking around the house singing and playing the guitar like a young troubadour.
Liz
Mike is such a patient, engaging, kind teacher, and has kept my six-year-old son busy via FaceTime one hour/week learning the basics of music. Knowing that my son is engaged and learning with a great teacher has been invaluable to me as a working mom, especially during the current quarantine, but I plan to have my son continue taking lessons because of how much he's learning and enjoying his lessons. Mike engages my son by incorporating subjects that interest him - like Super Mario Bros. - into his lessons. I can't recommend him highly enough!

I like that he gives a variety of things to work on, and provides ample feedback on ways to improve. This is perhaps the best lessons I've ever found."
