Sahar ..
Kept missing class without any heads up so I had to just wait around and hope he'll show up, ignored my calls and messages to reschedule, so I had to just get a refund from TakeLessons. As a teacher he is good, but very unprofessional behavior in terms of accountability and respect for students' time.

I’m a super beginner. So far so good! He starts from the beginning and doesn’t make you feel dumb.

Online Upright Bass Teacher

Playing the upright bass can be a wonderfully fulfilling activity for all! No matter how old you are or how much time you have during a day, You can master this skill to the level of enjoyment!

Music is a movement, an emotion, an ingenious thought, and an extraordinary way of communication! And all those little details that it possess have been lightened in many different ways by the students I taught - that is what inspires me the most in the teaching process.

I also encourage my students to analyze and talk about the piece we play, or discuss anything they are interested in music in general. Along with that, music theory and ear training lessons can improve your musical performance and knowledge about music.

I am looking forward to enjoying playing and learning music together with you!

Mr. Eddie
We would like to express our gratitude for all your kindness and time spent with our daughter. She made her first music steps with you and now she can get rid of the piano.
She enjoyed working with you while your teaching methods help her be able to play complex songs.
We recommend teacher Nevena without reservation to everyone who would passionately like to dive into music.

I just finished a series of online upright bass lessons with Dr. Norman. It's wonderful to have a lesson without toting the bass around town. Dr. Norman is impressive in skill and knowledge. There was nothing musically he didn't know, couldn't explain, or demonstrate on the bass. He has a keyboard at hand to play chords or emphasize a particular key, and he is proficient on that too. Dr. Norman is A++.
