The bass guitar doesn't get a lot of love. That's unfortunate, because playing bass is an incredible feeling. It's a foundational instrument and bringing that sense of stability to a song can make it go from sounding okay to sounding like real music you hear on the radio.

My bass students are taught the foundational skills and techniques, but also the rhythm and feel of playing bass. An instrument with a fairly low barrier to entry, bass is one of the best ways to get playing quickly. Will you pick up the bass today?

Avi has been teaching me for four months and somehow he has turned me into a semi-decent guitar player. I didn’t think it was possible to make so much progress so fast but it’s all due to Avi. I cannot imagine a better teacher. Knowledgeable, patient, kind and just has a way to take music from a page to the student’s hands. If I could give Avi six stars, I would.

Awesome first lesson with Avi! Natural ability to connect with kids!

My teaching style really depends on who the student is. I am always happy to work together towards what the student wants to be able to play while supporting that with helpful and relevant exercise.
I am able to teach theory, technique, reading music, improvisation, playing scales and stuff like that but I am also happy helping people learn specific songs they want to play and working on groove, time and sound.

Noga is a kind, patient, sensitive teacher with a deep understanding of musical theory and technique and a warm, encouraging and professional sensibility. Not just a great teacher but also a punctual, communicative scheduler. She's just wonderful to deal wit. 10 out of 10 would recommend!
David C
Noga is a great teacher!!! Always prepared and really knowledgeable. Totally recommended!
Nick C
Noga is all-around the best musical instructor I have ever had. What makes her lessons special is her passion for teaching and for music. She motivated me to challenge myself on the bass both through her creative exercises and supportive charisma. On top of that, Noga is a true master of the bass guitar. She has an immediately recognizable groove that you can hear whenever she plays, and her skill is incredibly wide-ranging. Our lessons have touched on driving rock, jazz walking bass, and ambient soundscapes to name a few, and she is very open to delve into new musical territory together if you have any questions on how to achieve a certain sound. Every lesson with her will have a great impact on your playing.

I structure my lessons so students learn what they want to learn, while also building a strong foundation of classical guitar skills. I specialize in rock.
First, I will determine your level and purpose of classes. In the first lesson for beginners, I usually give basic information about the guitar (for example, the history of the guitar, the structure of the guitar, the correct fit when playing the guitar, tuning the guitar)

Electric bass has been an obsession of mine for many years. It was my first instrument, and it is certainly one of my favorites.

It is my philosophy that learning and playing an instrument should be an enjoyable experience, and it is my goal to spark a love of music in all my students. I will have you playing in no time, and will also teach you the theory behind music that is so essential for any musician to understand.

Great learning experience with Eric.

I can't say enough good things about Earl's instruction. He's extremely knowledgeable and talented and yet responsive, inspiring, and kind. Rather than applying a narrow and rigid approach to teaching, lessons are built around my abilities and interests and he has taught me new ways of looking at music and playing guitar.

"Fantastic Teacher!

Alex is an awesome teacher! His ability to communicate information in a way that is easily understood no matter the complexity is a rare thing. Alex is obviously extremely passionate about teaching and music. Alex goes above the expected level of effort from a teacher, making sure every lesson has new and interesting material to be covered, as well as staying in contact as needed outside of lessons to answer any questions that may arise while practicing. If you are looking for someone who is dedicated to your learning process, as well as doing everything they can to keep material interesting and fun, I would suggest Alex."

"I enjoyed my first bass lesson! It was nice to hear my playing and technique bounced off of someone else, especially since I've been learning by my self since I got my guitar.

The feedback that I would give is that I wish there was more of a plan for my first lesson. I was simply asked to talk about my musical experience, which is fine, but I wish I was asked to play some scales, riffs, intervals etc. Also, we didn't talk very much about knowing goals for the lesson or for music were so the lesson felt a bit undirected. But music is pretty exploratory so I might be a bit harsh."

"Mr. Blackwell is an outstanding music teacher! With the method he uses to teach, the student will not only be able to master playing the instrument but they will also be able to read music. I am an older student who has never even touched a bass and in a matter of weeks I have been able to play songs under the instructions of Mr. Blackwell. Bravo to him and his teaching method!"

"Rob is great!

Rob is great. His teaching style is informal and comfortable. He is very laid back. Rob is very patient with beginning students and can really coax their talent from them. I've seen him with more experienced students too, and their sessions seemed to be almost a jam session.
Rob has taught my son since he decided to take up the Bass and so we have known Rob for many years and have become friends. We've seen him perform in a lot of venues. He can sound like Paul McCartney or John Lennon as a Beatle or Geddy Lee in Rush. I'm sure he can surprise me with his stylistic range. Even as a bassist, which usually are very staid, he leads the group with his vocals.
He can act too, and make us laugh with just the right timing.
As a teacher, you can't do better than Rob."
