Andrew naturally has an ear and talent for music, always has. His passion for music started self taught and advanced throughout his professional career. His music range is wide spread stylistically, thus as a teacher he can focus on many different areas with each of his students. His improvisation skills are effortless both on stage and in our jam sessions. Andrew has a way of teaching that makes learning music very approachable. He is patient and well thought out about the process. Always fun to watch on stage and a joy to work with.

Michael C.

Philadelphia, PA

Using your favorite songs form any genre of music students become familiar with musical scales, arpeggios, chords, music notation and theory, rhythm and ear training.

About Michael

Michael C. was eleven years old when he began to play the electric bass guitar. He decided to get an electric bass because it was the one instrument needed to start a band among his friends. In addition to playing the electric bass, Michael enjoyed time practicing on the guitar and piano in high school. Transferring the knowledge and finger technique to the guitar came easy because of the similarities between guitar and the bass. And growing up with an upright piano in the house always lead to tinkering and eventually became a proficiency after college. In 1996 Michael enrolled at the the Phil
adelphia University of the Arts. He was awarded a presidential merit scholarship and a university grant based on his entrance audition. During his studies Michael was recruited for a student ensemble also know as Metagroove. During this time Michael had shared stages with guitarist John Scofield, Singer Ike Willis (Frank Zappa Band), Medeski Martin and Wood and The Disco Biscuits among countless others.

C. has completed a Master of Arts in music education as well as Bachelor of Music in bass performance. Michael is qualified to teach on bass, upright bass, guitar, drums, piano, voice and a rare instrument called steel pan (steel drum) among others. Michael performs as a freelance musician. He can be found performing regularly at private parties and events around the greater Philadelphia area. He has performed playing most styles and genres of music. Among these styles are Pop, R & B, Blues, Hip Hop, Jazz, Calypso, Flamenco, Latin, Pop, Musical Theater and Rock & Roll.

C. is a trained professional and prefers to cater his lessons to the individual need of each student. He believes that each student is unique and will encounter challenges in their own manner. Michael likes to supplement his lessons using musical interests of the student. C. has been known to arrange popular pieces for recital performances for his students. Some of the pieces he has arranged for his students include Something in the Way She Moves (Beetles), Long distance Run Around (The Who), Iron Man (Black Sabbath), That' €™s What Makes You Beautiful (One Direction), Hall of Fame (The Script) among many more. Michael encourages his students to use the music they love to challenge their ability and cognitive processes. Michael has the experience and training required to inspire and motivate you to become successful not only in music but in your daily endeavors.

*** Lesson Details ***
Michael has over twelve years experience teaching music and chooses to cater his lessons to the goals of his clients. He does not follow a set curriculum because different students tend to have different goals and expectations.

Brian M.

Marlton, NJ

I like to teach by breaking down songs my students want to learn. My students learn the fundamentals of music through playing the songs they like. Through studying your favorite bass lines, we can learn song forms, outlining chords, and how to walk. We can study music together to learn theory instead of going the other way around.

About Brian

Hey! My name is Brian and I teach guitar, bass guitar, and music theory out of Duke's Bike Music Studio in Marlton, NJ. A little about myself, I'm 33, married and have two kids. I've been playing guitar and bass since I was 12 and professionally teaching music since 2008. Aside from playing in various bands in the South Jersey/Philadelphia area, I'm a guitarist, upright bassist, and vocalist in the 553rd Air National Guard Band of the Northeast. I'm also the Music Director for the 553rd's popular music ensemble. I studied music and music education at Camden County College and Berklee Col
lege of Music.
Over the years, I've developed a method of teaching that uses songs my students like as the example for learning technique and music theory. My students are of all ages and range from never-played-a-note to gigging musicians looking to change things up a bit. Duke's Bike Music Studio is conveniently located near the Promenade shopping center. My rates are competitive and my schedule is flexible. Hit me up and we can get you scheduled right away.
Thanks!

Brian is a very patient and enthusiastic teacher. I have gone through some challenging phases while learning basic music theory and technical skills on bass guitar, and Brian has been instrumental (see what I did there?) in encouraging me through those bumps in the road. Learning to read and perform music can sometimes seem daunting, but he's really great at breaking down the information into fun exercises and simple explanations. You can tell he really enjoys what he does.

I decided to pick up the guitar in my 30s and soon realized I was in over my head. I spent a few hours with Brian and he has been tremendous in helping me progress. He is a personable guy and has a knack for explaining instructions and techniques clearly. He gives a ton of feedback and has an eye/ear for correcting issues. Also, Brian makes music theory very approachable which has given me a greater appreciation and understanding of the complexities of music. I highly reccomend.

Brian is amazing. He is wonderfully patient with my 10 year old son and knows how to get thru to younger students and communicate with them etc. We are very proud of our son's progress towards being a really great guitar player and it's because of Brian's patience, ability to communicate as well as his knowledge and ability to teach. His rates are very affordable and he's quite flexible with our family's ever changing schedule as we are super busy

Sam is not only a wonderful teacher but also a talented bass player. He accommodates to the student's pace, but does it in an efficient manner. He also teaches in a fun manner that makes learning the bass not too difficult. He is always well prepared with lessons and uses encouragement to push me further. Furthermore, seeing how he is passionate about the bass inspired me to also pursue the bass guitar. I highly recommend him to anyone who is seeking for bass lessons, and without a doubt he will help you learn the fundamentals and strive beyond that.

Jason B.

Philadelphia, PA

I've been playing bass since the beginning of high school and have played in bands in all sorts of genres ranging through rock, jazz, folk and funk. I love teaching students that being a bass player isn't just some boring second hand guitarist's role, rather it is the connecting piece in music between the rhythm section and the harmony. I also focus on broader music theory and how that relates to the bass and informs what we should play.

About Jason

Hello, I'm Jason. Wether your kid is interested in picking up the bass guitar or you are looking to brush yours off again, let me help you. I teach bass lessons both in my home studio in Fishtown and in the homes of students around the Philadelphia area.

I am an audio engineer, producer and musician and I've been playing bass in various projects in Philadelphia since I moved here in 2006, primarily with my rock band, Busses. I specialize in rock and jazz but have performed in many other genres from folk to hip hop and polka to electronic. I studied bass with Jim Miller at Lebanon Valley Col
lege while completing degrees in music recording technology and music composition.

Lessons focus on solid feel, music theory and technique. I love discovering new music with students and will help students learn songs but we will also take time to make sure you grasp what's happening musically. The bass player is the connection between the harmonic voices and the drums, a critical role. Join me on the quest for the perfect bass line!

I didn't actually take lessons from Jason, but him and I were in a band for a few years and he is one of the more talented musicians I've had the privilege of working with in my career. We discussed trading lessons (I play drums) a few times but unfortunately never had a chance to. I know Jason is a great teacher as he is a very knowledgeable player and is quite good at explaining his ideas. He is at a professional level in chart reading/interpretation, musicality, improvisation, and performance. He's versatile in all genres and a very easygoing person. This is the guy to take bass lessons from.

Full disclosure, I am a drummer and have not taken bass lessons from Jason. Nevertheless, I've been making music with Jason for 8 years and have learned so much from him. He is without a doubt one of the best musicians I've ever had the pleasure to play with. He has a very advanced musical vocabulary and technical skill set. He is incredibly adaptable and able to approach any given song with a wide range of styles and melodies. Most importantly, Jason's bass lines just always have great feel. He is always in command of the groove and super responsive to all other instrumentation.

Last and certainly not least, Jason is articulate and patient, with no ego whatsoever. He's genuinely friendly and fun to be around. I can't imagine a better instructor to help learn the bass or brush up on existing skills.
