Private Bass Guitar Teacher

Bass Guitar is the sweet spot between rhythm and melody. Learning that bass is not just a low-end guitar, but a pivot between the drummer and guitarist(s) in the band, you'll find yourself listening to and playing music from an all new, entirely unique perspective. I've been playing bass for 15 years, and have found of my session work as a bass player. Being able to keep the beat while enhancing and shaping the melody of a song is key, and on top of various techniques, that will be the focus of our lessons.

I feel lucky we found Dave! My son who is 11 yo was having a hard time with his other piano teacher. Dave is patient, friendly and encouraging. What I really love is that Dave notices where my son is having a problem and comes up with exercises to work on that issue!

Dave is a great teacher and has helped me for 2 years whenever I have a problem he takes time out of the lesson to help me on a specific instruction. He pushes me to do better but we still go at a place we’re I am comfortable.

Online Bass Guitar Teacher

I have been playing bass guitar professionally since 2010, and have had the chance to tour all over the US with a handful of groups. After only a few weeks, I can help a beginning bass student play basic baselines in any genre, while simultaneously teaching them to understand their role as bass in the music. It is the foundation, which determines the role of everyone else in the group. Intermediate to advanced students might enjoy coming to my home studio for lessons, so that I may hop on the drum set and we can jam together. My specialties are "feel" and fluency in the genres listed below and pattern based learning of the instrument and music theory.

About Julian

This was my 14 y/o and my very first lesson. We learned chords, strum patterns, and melody. Super fun evening! Julian even gave my 12 y/o a lesson on his drum set while we practiced on our guitars. Now the family is hooked! Excited for our lesson next week.
David
Julian has spent lots and lots of fun time with his nephews and nieces (age 13-2), playing music with and teaching--ukulele, piano, guitar and drums over the last few years, and as a result they all have some great skills, confidence, and excitement about music. He's kind and very tuned in to where his students are.
I'm his Dad so I've seen how rewarding it can be for his students. He's also given me a basic set of skills on the guitar. It goes without saying, I recommend him highly!!

"Robert has been great to work with. He comes to our home weekly to work on bass guitar with our daughter. She has come so far in only a few months. They work on all aspect of the music- theory, finger placement, drills, and they pick some really fun music. He has let my daughter pick several songs she really likes so that she stays engaged. Meeting time been flexible which is a huge bonus! So much easier on all of us! Thanks Robert!"

"I really enjoyed working with Jordan! His flexible approach to teaching and learning was refreshing. He was able to quickly assess my skill-level and meet me where I was at. During our lessons, I learned what I felt was applicable, as he gears the lessons towards the student, not teaching from a one-size-fits-all lesson plan. He is open to learning new ideas, as I understood the instrument from one perspective, and he a different perspective. He was willing to listen and adjust his teaching style towards my level of understand, and I was able to quickly progress. With his knowledge and his experience, he answered so many questions I had about music. If I take lessons again in the future, I will request Jordan."

She's very friendly and has a deep knowledge of bass and music in general - she showed me some finger exercises for flexibility, we discusses various picking/plucking techniques and went over general bass playing basics (scales, metronome work) for me to practice. We also had a discussion about how great we think John Entwistle is :)

I am very pleased and look forward to growing as a musician under her tutelage."
