Learn the practical application of music theory on the bass by studying songs. You will begin to understand how bass lines are written. After learning shapes and patterns you will be on your way to writing your own bass lines and jamming on your favorite songs.

About Eric
Music isn't just a career choice: it is a way of life. I have been playing music since I was a toddler; everything I have learned about life has been through music. I believe that self-expression is important to being confident with yourself. I look forward to sharing my passion for music and teaching with any students who are ready to learn!

I'm an accomplished composer and sound engineer with music featured on CBS, ABC, E!, Bravo, and other networks. I also write music for film & gaming. I am fluent in a range of professional software programs which includes Logic Pro, Pro Tools, Ableton Live, Amadeus Pro, Cubase, and MaxMSP.

I have over a decade of performance experience and have played along the East Coast with several bands. Some venues I have performed at recently include The Plaza Theatre in Orlando; Backbooth in Downt
own Orlando; The Crowbar in Tampa; The Bandshell and The Peabody Auditorium in Daytona Beach. I am a versatile musician who primarily performs and instructs on Drums, Bass, and Guitar (acoustic and electric). I teach nearly all styles of music, including classical, jazz, funk, and rock. I have graduated from Stetson University with degrees in Digital Arts, Music, and Business.

I feel that nothing is impossible. Great results aren't given--they are earned, and I know how to set goals to reach those results. This is a virtue I like to share with students. My dedication to music has helped me accomplish much at a young age.

*** Lesson Details ***
All lessons accommodate the unique needs of the student. My lessons don't merely teach you musical theories: I will teach you how to express yourself through your instrument as you learn those theories. You will gain technical knowledge and the tools to experience your musical potential. Lessons with me are the perfect extra-curricular activity for your child, or a great experience for you. A large part of my curriculum is more than learning how to play a few cover songs. The lessons are also about becoming more confident with yourself as a person and developing character along the way. You will learn about the discipline, patience, and dedication that it takes to stand out among professionals, not just as a musician, but as a strong individual. Music is a part of that. What you play becomes an extension of yourself. Young or old, everyone has something to share with the world through music.

In a given lesson, you can expect half of it to be about the basics of your instrument and the literature for reading music. The other half is about how you can apply these principles in a unique way that relates to yourself. However, the lesson is all about the student. If the student wants to learn in different ways that is never a problem. All I ask is that you're eager to learn! Everybody has different musical tastes and different learning styles. That is what makes every musician unique and every lesson exciting.

I enjoy teaching people of all ages 5 and up and have experience teaching groups or individuals. From beginner or experienced, hobbyist or professional, every person has a place in the wonderful world of music!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Separate studio: computer, recording gear, mics, amps, keyboard, guitars, bass, drum kit

*** Travel Equipment ***
When traveling to their house I ask students to provide their necessary performance materials, i.e. drumset, guitar and amp, essential books, etc. I always provide all necessary teaching equipment, i.e. computer, additional guitars.

*** Specialties ***
Drums- Funk, Jazz, Classic Rock, Metal, Punk, Blues, Hip-Hop

Eric is the real deal as a guitar teacher. I personally play the guitar myself, but as any parent knows when it comes to teaching your own child there is going to be some resistance no matter what! Lol. Eric is very well educated in music and has the rapport to teach beginners as well as advanced students. My son looks forward to his time with Eric and considers him a friend as well! In closing, if your looking for an instructor that has a solid music background that can channel that knowledge into your child or self, look no further!

About Mike
I teach all styles of music and all levels of ability

As I look back at my life, I see that music was my constant companion. My passion for music, and more specifically for the guitar, goes back to the time when, as a ten year old I received a guitar for my birthday. The sound of the instrument truly struck a chord in my heart and I learned to respect and love the instrument to the point that I thought of it almost as a companion, as something alive or, more exactly, as something my fingers could make come alive. At first I wanted to play rock and popular music, but eventually I switched to classical. When I entered the realm of classical music, a whole new world opened up for me -- new feelings, new emotions, and new challenges.
My enthusiasm for music continued, and beginning in 1990 I attended the Hartt School of Music, part of
the University of Hartford. I knew, of course, that the education of a musician is truly never finished, and between 1995 and 1997, I took Master Jazz Classes in New York City, under the direction of Dennis Cinelli, the international guitar player and soloist.
While in Florida, I attended classes at Florida International University. Between 2000 and 2003 I played in an orchestra on board the ships of the Royal Caribbean Cruise Line.
All along the way I have been teaching the guitar at just about every level, an activity that I always enjoyed but admittedly is somewhat limiting. Teaching brings us back to the basics, but for a musician performing is what makes us grow professionally and satisfy us emotionally.

Open and individualized lessons will teach each student in a unique fashion to fit them best. Chords, theory and musical reading will be the main focus of these lessons. My individualized approach works well for many students so that they learn what they want, how they want, and see the results that they specifically are looking for.

Students can expect to learn anything from basic chords to advanced theory and improvisational techniques on their instrument.

Although bass guitar is a secondary instrument for me, I have always taken much enjoyment in playing and teaching it. I have been playing bass for nearly as long as guitar and feel that it is a very important instrument that could be just as rewarding to play as any other instrument. My mastery over bass comes more from my time spent as a guitarist, however I do understand many nuances behind playing bass and can instruct you confidently on the correct/required methods as far as this instrument is concerned.

About Chris
I began teaching music professionally in 2015 and since then it has become my passion. I graduated college with a degree in music and teach professionally as my primary source of income. I regularly teach guitar and bass (4 string 5 string and fretless) as well as introductory piano and even college level courses such as: music theory, composition and songwriting; all of which can be applied to any instrument. I am also confident teaching left handed students and am great with younger students. If you have any questions, feel free to call, text, or email at any time.

I have a good 4 years of experience using my band performance guitar abilities, and knowledge of music theory/production towards bass technique and practice. I understand the role a bass should play in most pop/funk/soul/rock/reggae/alternative/blues settings, and I work with students on right hand finger technique, holding rhythm and staying in the pocket, theory and scales, and learning songs is a great benchmark to cover all of those essentials.

About Juan
I am an experienced musician, singer, and teacher. I have six years of performing and touring experience, and six years teaching private lessons as well as at the School Of Rock in Ballwin, MO. I like to work with my students on their specific needs/interests/desires as singers and musicians. Whether that is on technique, performance, extending range, learning songs, or simply feeling more comfortable with your singing voice and your performing abilities, I am happy to help you grow as a singer and musician.

I've been taking lessons with remy for the past 2 months and my ability has massively increased. Not only is remy a great guitar player but his patience makes him an awesome teacher. His understanding of music is fantastic and he is very good at breaking songs apart to make it easy for the student to learn. As well as teaching he also uses his own time to find songs for me to practice that would improve my
Technique. I would recommend remy to anybody from beginner to intermediate. Great guy and awesome teacher.
Thanks Remy

These lessons will focus on getting a student to the point where they're comfortable playing while reading music, following a specific tempo, and creating their own rhythm. Each lesson will be customized for each student so that the learning environment is fun and energetic. Student's learn techniques while also learning a song that the technique applies too so that they can enjoy the music their making without all of the boring in-between.

About Austin
I love teaching others, and I love music. So what better to do with my time than to spread the knowledge and joy with others who are interested. Music is fun, relaxing, and exciting all at the same time. I've been teaching for 6+ years with several different types of students, and have studied with a professor at Stetson's University of Music, while also networking with several longtime instructors to learn how too better convey the information being taught. So if you're enthusiastic and excited about music lets take the journey together and pursue your aspirations further!

With ten year of experience playing bass and a college degree on the instrument, I am able to meet any student where he/she is at; be a beginner, intermediate, or advanced player, I can help take you to the next level.

About Cal
I started taking piano lessons when I was six before switching to violin. When I quickly reached an intermediate level on violin, I fell in love with bass guitar. I am now set to receive a music degree from FAU with a focus in bass guitar. Along the way, I have picked up guitar, ukulele, piano, drums, voice, harmonica, and even banjo! In total, I have about six years of experience teaching - both freelancing and at music stores, and over fifteen years of private lessons on various instruments. I love writing music, learning songs, and teaching students of all ages and backgrounds.

I've been teaching online and private lessons for over 30 years; students of all ages, levels, & styles. I have a bachelor's degree in music with a special emphasis on guitar and music theory, and I've toured the world with an international metal band (Manowar). Through my extensive teaching experience, I have developed a teaching style which caters to each student, helping them reach their musical goals and having fun at the same time! Let's get started with learning how to lay down the groove and a tight foundation with the drummer to help carry the band!

About David
I’m a professional guitarist, songwriter, and recording artist, respected by my peers and the industry as one of the top 10 shredders and fastest guitarists in the world. I’m well-known for playing 7-string over-the-neck scales and arpeggios, string skipping, and mastering many guitar techniques. This expertise has brought me many high-level guitar students from around the world, while I am still also very successful teaching beginner guitarists of all ages.

I was a member of the metal band Manowar from 1988 to 1995, playing on the epic, certified double-platinum album “The Triumph of Steel” and co-writing 5 songs on that record. I toured all over the world during those years, regularly performing to crowds of 10,000+, in over 50 countries. In later years, I played in front of some of the biggest rock and metal crowds all over the w
orld, including 70,000+ people at Earthshaker Fest 2005 and 40,000+ people with my own band DSG at the First Annual Magic Circle Festival in 2007.

I set out on my own from Manowar in 1995 and attended Roosevelt Music University in Chicago to further my guitar studies. I graduated with a Bachelor of Music specializing in jazz and classical guitar, music theory, and composition.

I continue to record and perform live all over the globe. I have recorded and appear on over 26 CDs as a guest solo guitarist, and there’s more to come. Even before my days as lead guitarist of Manowar, I had already received numerous accolades. My technique and blistering speed on the guitar won for me the moniker “The Shred Demon”. Such revered artists as Michael Angelo Batio, Joe Stump, Rusty Cooley, George Bellas, Uli Jon Roth and Tom Hess have testified. George Bellas has said, “DSG should stand for Dangerous Speed Guitar”.

My playing styles vary from classical to shred metal and everything in between. I teach the beginner to the advanced/master student, electric guitar, acoustic guitar, classical, and bass guitar, in various genres ranging from classical to metal to country to neo-classical. With 40+ years of playing professionally, and 30+ years of teaching, I use my expertise to cut off the fat and get down to the quickest ways for my students to become better players, allowing my students to excel at a faster pace. I look forward to taking YOUR playing to the next level in the shortest amount of time, and we can have a lot of fun in the process!

Ive been taking lessons from David for about a year. He is very versatile... everything from Blues, Classical, Rock and of course Metal. I've been playing for years, but decided to go to him to learn to solo better. He is great with beginners, from kids to experienced guitarists. He is absolutely the fastest guitarist I have ever seen, especially sweep picking. But, when he slows things down, he has tons of tone and feel, and I have learned a lot about that just by watching him play. He is educated in music, and has much experience from a life, as far as I can tell, dedicated to music. He truly seems to care about your playing, and seems to enjoy developing students into better players.
