My goal as a teacher is to give you the facility to express yourself through music. The key parts to developing this facility are: 1. theory -- notice i say theory, not rules. learning music theory is not about learning rigid rules that will stifle your creativity. when you learn theory, you learn to identify patterns and give them names so you can remember and reuse them. the more you know your theory, the more ways you know to express your ideas 2. technique -- the last thing you want is for your technique to hinder your ability to express your idea. Having good technique lets your ideas flow naturally. and really, why would you not want to be the best you can be? When you take lessons with me, you get out of it what you put in. Your job as student is to be honest with what you expect to achieve and my job as teacher is to give you the tools to achieve it

Where to Take Bass Guitar Lessons in New York City

Getting to New York bass lessons can propose a challenge, even for those with flexible schedules. It’s no secret that traffic congestion and construction delays in the City of Dreams are far from dreamy, regardless of the time of day. So, when scheduling bass guitar lessons in New York City, be sure to keep in mind how you will get there.

The good news is that the city has a diverse public transit system that includes buses, trains, the subway system and even a free ferry for those traveling to one of the nearby island communities, like Staten Island. The famous NYC cab is also a good option, as are walking and biking if your chosen lesson location isn’t too far away.

One idea to consider is taking online lessons with your instructor, to ease the traffic and travel burden. These sessions would be ideal for refining your sound and skills, or following up on previous in-person lessons.

Where to Practice Bass in New York

There are dozens of groups across the city that bass players looking to gain some practice can join. Check out Jazz in the Afternoon in the Local 802 Clubroom and their other weekly events. If you’re serious about playing, consider supporting #MusiciansofNY, which keeps the spirit of music alive and well in the cultural capital of the world.

Additionally, many opt to gather at open mic nights such as the Village Underground, Pete’s Candy Store and Prohibition. Street musicians are all the rage in NYC, but to play a bass guitar with an amplifier, you must obtain a Street Musician or Performers Permit from the city.
