About Ray

Ray is an amazing teacher. My 11-year-old has high-functioning autism and has a great interest in learning music. I was hesitant to hire just any teacher, as many teachers don't have the patience and understanding to work with special needs kids. However, Ray has been not only patient, but he has an exceptional way of teaching my son in a way that he would understand and retain the information. Ray is creative, intuitive, and experienced. My son is very happy and enjoys the lesson every single time. Thanks Ray.

Private Bass Guitar Teacher

Fingers or a pick? Why did you you choose electric bass over the guitar? I’ll help you understand the role of a bass guitar and show you basic techniques to those catchy fills that have been remembered for decades.

Beginner level: technique and positioning is paramount. I prefer to use fingers over a pick to begin with but it is purely your choice. I will start from one position (left hand) and work with the right amount of finger strength (both hands), timing of notes, and coordination. A plethora of popular songs can be played in just one spot on the fret!

Next, I will incorporate some simple theory and show you how to move around the fretboard comfortably by shifting or sliding and really emphasize cooperation with the right hand. You want to make those notes shine and “mean it”. You are the band’s “anchor” and you Must listen to your bandmates (even if you are just jamming to your favorite songs).

My goal is to make you feel comfortable in your role and get the ...

George was so patient with me. I knew absolutely nothing about playing guitar and I learned exactly what I needed. He gave me the confidence I needed to learn the guitar.George is an amazing guitar player and I feel fortunate to have him as my instructor. I loved my lesson and can't wait for the next.

Private Bass Guitar Teacher

25+ enjoyable years teaching music to hundreds and hundreds of students. My specialty is teaching the great songs of The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, RUSH, Journey, Yes, Paul McCartney, Motown, Pink Floyd, Eagles, Simon & Garfunkel--there is just so much great music from the 60s, 70s and 80s. It never gets old!

It's helpful for a student to learn the names of the musical notes, how scales and arpeggios work, and to practice a bit of ear training. Of course, each student has his or her own technique to develop.

If you love music I encourage you to learn to play an instrument. It makes your life better!

Lance was my guitar teacher for over 8 years. Lance is the best of the best! He can play any style of music and caters his lessons towards your interests. More importantly, he teaches you how to learn on your own. Lessons with Lance provided me with the skills to evolve as a person - with and without a guitar in my hand. Highly recommend!

Lance was my guitar instructor for 5 years. I was brand new when I began, and Lance was extremely helpful and methodical with his teaching. He picked the first few songs I learned based on his decades of experience, and then from then on, I could either chose my own songs to learn or pick a suggestion of his. I learned countless Led Zeppelin, AC/DC, Def Leppard, and Aerosmith songs. I also learned a few songs in their genres as well. Lance is quite proficient in being able to teach a song from just listening to it, which allows him flexibility to teach you almost anything you’d like.

Lance is also amazing at getting you to think about music and your life in ways that you may not have previously done. Lessons could be as theoretical or hands-on as I wished, and I learned a great bit about different ways to view the world from time I spent conversing with Lance.

I absolutely recommend Lance to anyone for his professionalism, genuine attitude, skill, and flexibility.

Lance is the best guitar teacher I could've ever asked for. He knows exactly how to teach you as you can tell he has a lot of experience instructing. He is very good at getting rid of bad habits quickly and will teach you whatever you want to learn and teach it at any level. He is a very good guitar player himself and can teach form, rhythm, and music theory very well. I've been learning from him for 11 years and I still learn more to this day!

I've been teaching bass for nearly 20 years. As a professional bassist playing 5-8 gigs weekly for about 10 years, I learned a wide range of bass lines and playing styles.
I can help bassists of all levels improve and diversify their playing technique and awareness of all things bass!

Unfortunately, yesterday was my last lesson with Mark, as I am moving to Guam. I would definitely not be giving up my weekly lesson with him if that weren't the case! I've learned so much in the short couple months taking lessons from him. I would recommend him to anyone of any skill level. Very helpful and kind. :)

"Excellent teacher for students of all ages and experience

Robert has been assisting me with my bass guitar and acoustic guitar education. He has expertly weaved music theory into my lessons and has given me a huge boost to my musical confidence. I used to think some things would be too difficult and perhaps insurmountable but with his encouragement I feel a lot more confident. I have been helped because his lessons have been tailored to my needs and weaknesses. Robert is a very friendly music teacher who would be able to assist anyone of any age. I cannot recommend him enough."
