Private Bass Guitar Teacher

First of all, I want to know what are the students wills and objectives in music. Understand why they want to learn music and what are their interests. This is a major thing to me, to know the student. After that, I work my way by giving the student material that will improve their skills and knowledge. This can be done by several methods (classical, Jazz, etc) that I have or by assignments that I will create in order to solve specific problems. I also want to focus on specific music interests that the student have, by giving repertoire and musical examples that will motivated them.

Online Bass Guitar Teacher

I've been teaching bass guitar for more than ten years. Offering individual styled lessons for the foundation of bass guitar--including techniques, scales and modes.

About Omar

My passion is sharing music with people. I love to answer questions and learn things I don't know, I know a good amount about guitar repair, improvised instrument building, how to buy a good instrument and not spend to much, and I have a vast knowledge of obscure instruments, and audio producti

I loved my lessons with Omar! He's very knowledgable, and not just about the instrument but music in general. He worked with me for about 7 months to help achieve my goal of learning to improvise on the bass guitar. Omar is very easy to talk to and very funny. He knew how to take complicated music theory and really break it down so that I could understand it better. I left each lesson with an assignment, a technique or a song to practice what we learned in that week's lesson.

I feel very comfortable with being able to be at a jam session and play along with the rest of the group. He taught me how to come up with licks using factorials, how to create a solo using modes and adding some flavor to the solos with techniques such as pop and slap or changing the tempo.

Thank you, Omar, for being such a great teacher! I feel much more confident in myself as a bass player because of the time you spent with me and all of the knowledge you departed onto me. I am very appreciative of you for that - thanks again!

Omar is just the best. Even when I've not practiced as much as I should between lessons I always make sure to go, because he always has so much to teach and I always leave feeling uplifted and excited about music. Omar never makes you feel stupid for asking "stupid" questions, and incorporates a range of methods to make the lessons meaningful. I never thought I'd be able to improvise a blues riff after just a few lessons with him playing backup drums! Omar thinks outside the box and is so adaptable to your needs. He showed me a "bass" he made out of a cast-off guitar with weed-whacker filament as strings for a client with very limited hand motion. Book a lesson with Omar; you won't regret it!

Daryl
Great instructor. Attentive to your skills and needs/desires as a guitarist. Will teach you both how to play any song you would want to learn, fundamentals, and also will push you while still being positive and encouraging.

Added bonus he has a cute puppy!!!

Online Bass Guitar Teacher

Bass is thought of as easier than guitar, but if you believe that you're just not playing the instrument right. The bass is arguably the most important instrument in any kind of music (Jack White doesn't agree with me on this) Every chord has a bunch of matching scales and lines and riffs that every serious bass player should know front to back to be able to carry a good band. All levels welcome.

About David

I am a 32-year old Massachusetts native and have been playing music since I was 8 years old, starting on the piano with a wonderful teacher in Beverly who also went to Berklee. I picked up the guitar and the bass in high school and got into rock, jazz and blues and haven't looked back. I received

Looking for a way to make your bass lines move? Bass guitar teacher Miller W. shares his three step plan to creating walking bass lines... The walking bass line is one of the most fundamental parts of American music. It is found most commonly in blues and jazz, but as you learn bass guitar, you will hear its influence in almost any style of music.
