Mike S.

Lehighton, PA

I've played bass professionally for over 30 years, including touring with blues artists Mike Dugan and the Blues Mission.
All levels and styles from contemporary electric rock and funk to classical contrabass.

About Mike

A professional musician and music instructor for over 30 years, Mike has established himself as not only a world class player but also an excellent teacher of all ages and skill levels. He teaches for several area conservatories and hosts master classes on composition, performance, guitar and bass improvisation. Mike now offers lessons in his professional home studio.

*** Lesson Details ***
Mike's approach is to use the student's own musical tastes to develop an appreciation for the instrument. If you like rock, you learn by playing rock. If you like jazz, you learn by playing jazz. Mike's
approach makes it painless to learn to read, train your ear and develop monster chops quickly.

*** Studio Equipment ***
1) Recording studio - 1200 square feet - all instruments and seating for parents

2) Private teaching room w/ all instruments and seating for parents

*** Specialties ***
For the last few years I've had good results teaching theory as part of a greater performance focus. I've taught Hal Leonard and Suzuki Method in the past, but find this more enjoyable and rewarding for the students.

Just what I thought a ukelele instructor to be-I learned a lot and it was fun! He also directed me to a you tube video of the Ukelele Orchestra in Great Britain-pretty amazing stuff!

The fact that Mike went to Juilliard for teaching should entice one to give him a try. However his ability to keep a student engaged, while having fun was the reason that I decided to make Mike my long-term teacher.
I learned more in one hour than I had in many years.

I very much enjoy the time I share and learn with Mike. He has been very patient with my slow learning curve. I have noticed that he caters to a person's strengths, which works for me since I have been slowly learning technique and muscle coordination in respect to playing the violin.

I highly recommend anyone at any age to call upon Mike for instrumental instruction.

To TakeLessons, thank you for offering a system that lets people connect with highly competent instructors.

I can teach you to read notation and play like Les Claypool, slapping, tapping, and just keeping a groove

About Scott

I have a digital recording studio at home, and regularly perform with bands as a singer, guitarist, saxophonist, bassist, percussionist, and as a sound engineer. I perform as a music therapist, singing and playing tunes with an acoustic guitar. I wrote, performed and recorded my own album which made it up to the 2nd round of the 52nd Annual Grammy Awards, and was previously a voting member of the Philadelphia Chapter of the Grammy Committee and NARAS (National Association or the Recording Arts and Sciences.) I started piano lessons from age 5 and just kept picking up more instruments and ge
ar as I got older and never stopped learning or enjoying it

*** Lesson Details ***
I have been teaching Guitars, Basses, Percussion, Piano, Saxophone, Music Production, Recording, and Live Sound for 12 years.

I can teach you note-reading, tabs, ear training, music theory, composition, improvisation in any style of music.

I LOVE working with people writing songs. I can help you write and record your own songs. A computer and internet access are preferred to take full advantage of the technology for learning and producing music.

Knowledgeable in Instrument repair, set-up, and maintenance, I can help you fix it, and how to spot a good instrument.

Patient and experienced, with a broad knowledge of music in all areas, I can give you hundreds of good references from previous students I've taught over the last 12 years

*** Studio Equipment ***
I have :

Guitars, basses, percussion and drum sets, a piano, organ and synthesizer, saxophones, hand drums, microphones... it's hooked up here :)

a 20-track digital recording studio with studio monitors that are equalized to the room's acoustics for accurate listening and mixing.

and an assortment of microphones, amps, mic stands, cables, and connectors and the best part ... I know how to use them all together!

*** Specialties ***
I am comfortable teaching all styles. I do love the songwriting process and recording and will encourage you to do the same.

Joe is awesome

I came to Joe with some basic knowledge and skills on bass, he recognized this and built on it very quickly. I feel my skilled has tripled in the short time I've taken lessons with Joe. Our lessons are never boring an he does so much more than tell me to play a set of notes, he challenges me to make my own way and improvise. I would definitely recommend him for anyone wanting to learn an instrument.

Joe taught both my kids and made it a wonderful experience

We wanted our son and daughter to have an appreciation of music and at the same time enjoy the experience. Joe was the perfect solution. He has the ability to reach out to kids and make them feel comfortable. He encouraged them to select the music they enjoyed and then molded his lessons around their interest. We didn't really need to push them to practice, they actually enjoyed it. This had not been the case at other organizations, where it was always a chore to have them practice.

Nathan W.

Bethlehem, PA

I've been teaching all levels of electric bass in all major genres (rock, funk, blues, R&B, country, and classical) since 2012. It's my goal as a private instructor to be approachable, encouraging, and fun! I want your weekly lesson to be something you look forward to rather than dread. I take a personalized approach to teaching, which means finding what works best for YOU and not anyone else. No matter what genre you're interested in, I look forward to helping you reach your musical goals!

About Nathan

Hi, my name is Nate W. I'm an electric bassist and pianist with 16 years of experience playing in various groups - from classical to jazz to rock. I've been giving bass (beginner-advanced), piano (beginner), and music theory (beginner-intermediate) lessons since 2012.

I studied composition and performance as a Dean's List student at Berklee College of Music, and graduated with a Bachelor of Music degree. While there, I studied with some truly gifted musicians including Victor Bailey and Danny Morris. I also attended master classes with world renowned bassists such as Bootsy Collins, Ron
Carter, and Victor Wooten.

Mason B.

Macungie, PA

Bass has always been a solid instrument in my skill sets. I've contributed bass riffs and rhythms to recordings for years and became important parts of local bands in the past. Certain topics to be studied include exercises, picking techniques, slapping, note reading, chord embellishments, modal scales, and other very important techniques used in bands. Bass is an awesome instrument. I can't tell you how many times that I was told "bass players are the least known people in the band". No! They are known, and they are considered the most important contributors to band music in general. See for yourself!

About Mason

My Name is Mason and I've been teaching music to students of all ages since I was 14. I originally taught at a facility near Reading, PA called Zeswitz. While I worked there I studied along side other seasoned professionals in genres like jazz, heavy metal and folk styles. Currently I run a small business. My experience, since I was 8 years old, was built on private lessons from select very accomplished and certified guitarists. I also played in several profitable bands including jazz duos, classic rock trios and currently a blues duo with my lovely wife. I'm also always building and helping l
ocal bands. I'm very pro learning and never satisfied with my playing enough to say I don't have to practice any longer. I share to same attitude towards my students. There are always new grounds to break and new people to meet especially when it comes to guitar. Like Duke Ellington once said, "The wise musicians are those who play what they can master". Thank you for considering!
