I am 48 years old and have been playing Bass since 9 years of age. I’ve played classical and jazz professionally since I was 14 years old. I play Electric as well as String Bass. I am currently a resident Bassist at the legendary Preservation Hall Jazz Club in New Orleans LA since year 2000. I tour extensively having performed in many countries around the world. I teach adults as well as children and feel it is an opportunity for me to give back to the world that which music and more specifically the Bass has given me.

Excellent lesson, looking forward to continuing...

I've been taking on-line lessons from Mitchell for the last few months. He's helped me to steadily progress. Mitchell is a highly experienced working bass player and he has a strong sense of exactly what I need to work on next in order to more fully develop my skills. I highly recommend him especially if you are interested in learning to play jazz, walk your bass and improvise. He knows the way.

This was my second lesson. Mitchell has made thoughtful and practical suggestions to improve my playing and he seems to know exactly where we're headed. Great lesson.

Quickly figured out what I needed and began working on the plans to move me forward. Felt like I learned a lot in the initial lesson and am looking forward to the ones to follow.

I had been looking for a Hamond Instructor for a long time. Finally found one - and I can not say enough good things about Ricardo.

I recently was discharged Sep 3rd)) from one of our local hospitals. My health, and my age (86 today) will prevent me from taking any further lessons.

After all these years of hunting for an instructor, I feel I just can not keep going -- and I also feel like an anchor to Ricardo.

Private Bass Guitar Teacher

I have been playing bass professionally for over 40 years and teaching at Los Angeles Music College for over 26 years. Each student is different so after finding out their level, I will design lessons that will cater to their needs. The areas that I will focus them on will be reading, technique, theory and styles just to name a few. I am comfortable with all levels and all musical backgrounds. Playing music needs to be fun as well and so we will spend some time learning music that contains iconic bass parts from great bass players. Looking forward to meeting you and getting started.

All the best, Steve B

The instructor was very personable and knowledgeable. Took the time to assess where I am currently and invited input on where I wanted to go with my playing in the future. Exercises were useful to understand what I need to work on. Also, helped with posture and technique.

Steve actually researched a style of play that he was unfamiliar with to teach me. Obviously a master musician, he analyzed the basics of the style and started from my baseline, teaching me the technique from the ground up. A dedicated and friendly teacher, I'd recommend him to anyone.

"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 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."

"Paul's great. He's been amazing about listen to me and what I want to learn. I'm actually more interested in music theory, and learning about bass than I am interest in becoming proficient at playing. It's obv that not only does Paul play both Bass and Guitar, but he understands theory and he can talk intelligently about different styles.

Overall a really nice upbeat guy too. I was hesitant b/c I didn't want a guitar teacher who also played bass. I wanted a bass teacher, Paul definitely is serious about Bass, and does NOT approach it the same way he does guitar"
