Stop wasting your time - take Robert.

I only had the pleasure of taking piano lessons with Robert for two months since I got into Harvard and had to move to the East Coast, but I can confidently attest that he is a phenomenal teacher. To begin with, Robert brings to the table not only his classical training but also an open, creative, out-of-the-box approach. He is extremely knowledgeable and seasons lessons with fantastic facts about composers and pieces which makes everything a lot more interesting and memorable. lessons are versatile and designed to develop several key skills simultaneously. I never really played the piano before but after only two months with Robert I could read notes, develop my technique and actually play two beautiful pieces! If you are looking for a well-rounded, brilliant, cool teacher - search no more.

My style of teaching bass consists of technique exercises mixed in with song learning, song-writing and music theory proficiency. I believe that the music theory learned to write music is incredibly important as it is the universal language of music. During lessons, you will be taught the basics needed to write to various track utilizing different bass techniques that I give you. You may also request any song you'd like during lessons, and I will not only teach you the song, but will teach you HOW it was written

I've had weekly acoustic guitar lessons as an adult beginner for a little over a month now. I consider Brandon to be an outstanding instructor for several reasons: He makes it a point to understand my interests & goals, and always keeps the lesson plans moving in this direction. Brandon is patient with the learning process, and he also keeps things dynamic and challenging with a good balance of music theory, technical skills development, and application. Each lesson pulls me out of my comfort zone but he is careful not to overwhelm me. It's a pleasure to be instructed by someone who is so highly proficient with such a deep understanding of music, and who also wants to share their knowledge and experience with others to help them grow. I highly recommend Brandon.

Why TakeLessons?

Bass Guitar Lessons

One of the most constructive activities young people can engage in is to learn how to play a musical instrument. If rock, blues or jazz music are your style, bass guitar lessons are a great choice. Although guitar or drums tend to the most popular options, bass is a cool instrument because it helps to keep the rhythm going in the music with its low end rumble.

As you begin to learn bass guitar, you’ll notice that it is not a difficult musical instrument to learn. After a few months of bass guitar lessons with a TakeLessons Certified™ teacher, you should be able to play certain riffs or even full songs by ear. You’ll also find your senses heightened as a result of your instruction and ongoing practice sessions.

Based on how you’re progressing, our bass guitar teachers can also suggest which supplemental journals or ‘how to play guitar’ books to use between your scheduled lessons. This will ensure you continue to improve and you keep your bass playing skills sharp.

Still not convinced you need private bass guitar lessons? Check out the top benefits of our lessons:

• Lessons are fully customized for your age, experience level and interests. • Extensive roster of certified, friendly bass guitar teachers. • Access to an online lesson journal to keep you on track and motivated. • 100% Money Back Guarantee.
