The instructor was very personable and knowledgeable. Took the time to assess where I am currently and invited input on where I wanted to go with my playing in the future. Exercises were useful to understand what I need to work on. Also, helped with posture and technique.

Private Bass Guitar Teacher

I have been playing bass professionally for over 40 years and teaching at Los Angeles Music College for over 26 years. Each student is different so after finding out their level, I will design lessons that will cater to their needs. The areas that I will focus them on will be reading, technique, theory and styles just to name a few. I am comfortable with all levels and all musical backgrounds. Playing music needs to be fun as well and so we will spend some time learning music that contains iconic bass parts from great bass players. Looking forward to meeting you and getting started.

All the best, Steve B

Kara
Nick was a patient and enthusiastic teacher. I was nervous to start music lessons in my late 30s, but he made me feel comfortable and I never felt embarrassed. He taught me the songs I was interested in learning, but snuck in music theory and the basics along the way! Highly recommend
Shannon
Nick has done a great job with our 14 year old son! He has a great laid back style that is appreciated and keeps the lessons fun and engaging. Not only is he learning to play some of his favorite songs, but he is also getting ear training, music reading, picking, chord building, etc. We would highly recommend Nick!
Rachel
I would very highly recommend Nick as a guitar teacher. I've been taking lessons for five weeks and he has already helped me a lot with my technique. He has a great combination of the knowledge of a professional musician and also the patience and guidance of a very experienced teacher.

I also like that he is helping me with ear training. I've had previous experience with reading music, but he is really expanding my horizons with listening to music and trying to figure it out by using basic principles. This is a way to learn that I hadn't experience before in guitar lessons in the past, and I think it's a great way to learn.

I'm looking forward to many more lessons to come. This has really helped me to enjoy playing the guitar again!

We just started our lessons with Spiros a few weeks ago, and we’re having a blast! He’s very patient with our struggles, but pushes us enough to grow. He also helps us with our study habits. It’s great to have the guidance as well as the accountability of a private tutor. It’s clear he will do his best to help us succeed! Highly recommend!

"Greg is very dynamic and a really fun teacher. He understands how to read our son’s musical ability and gear the lesson to him. He instructs and plays music with our son during lessons in a manner that seems very effective, and our son comes home after his lesson wanting to play more and wanting to practice to be able to play cool stuff with Greg in the next lesson. Our son definitely feels challenged every lesson. We feel very fortunate to have found Greg and look forward years of lessons to come, as playing music with Greg is one of our sons favorite things."
