Currently, I play in a number of performing groups gigging regularly & produce artists for their own projects.

Since 2001, I have released 5 Albums which have received airplay worldwide on various digital platforms and radio stations. I am currently endorsed by Blade guitars by Gary Levinson.

If you are ready to start taking your music skills SERIOUSLY then stop wasting time and money on teachers who don't fully understand the instrument or subject matter themselves. My name is Russ and I have been playing guitar professionally for 20 years and teaching music and producing records for over 15. I have a Platinum #1 Billboard charting record under my belt, worked with artists such as Mac Miller, Sean Kingston, Red Velvet, Lifehouse and more; and have composed music to 100s of your favorite TV shows! Feel free to browse my official website for a full list of credits. Want to learn to shred guitar? Produce beats? Write your own songs? Dive into theory? Record yourself?

Beginners I'm not currently taking beginner guitar students, but I highly recommend my studio partner Melissa: https://takelessons.com/profile/melissa-m62 Intermediate Expand use of arpeggios and look into common variations in traditional harmony. Also begin to look into the applications of polyrhythms in bass playing. Advanced Break out of basic arpeggios through use of modes and chromaticism. Really push your rhythm to the limit through more advanced polyrhythms and use of asymmetrical meters. Also exploring different types of tone and methods of making sound.

I am an experienced bass guitar teacher with 10+ years of professional career behind me. I'm looking for eager students of all experience levels and ages! I structure my lessons so students learn what they want to learn, while also building a strong foundation of good playing habits (learning the right songs that you makes you a better musician!). I specialize in rock, jazz and funk. I focus on playing by memory but sheet music and cheat sheets are also available upon request. I also have the following tools available to use during lessons: sound recordings, sheet music, and more upon request. Let's plug in that guitar and play some smooth bass lines :)

In teaching lessons, it is my great pleasure to share with students of all ages and skill levels the knowledge that I've gained over 27 years of playing. I firmly believe that anyone can learn anything at any time, given the proper tools! In our first lesson, we will determine your musical goals and create a realistic path to achieving them. It's my job to help you along this path while keeping things fun. To maintain focus and week-to-week continuity, I always provide lesson notes to take home. I can also provide recordings of lessons and transcriptions of pieces, if desired. **Studio Equipment** violins, viola, mandolin, guitar, bass, ukulele, piano, recording equipment
