Private Bass Guitar Teacher

I never had picked up a Bass Guitar until I was in College. My first month I met two guys who had known eachother from high school and wanted to start a band. They both played Guitar (my main instrument at the time) so I lied through my teeth and told them I played the Bass but I didn't have room to bring it so I'd have to borrow their's. I was currently in my first semester of Music Theory and the tuning is the same as the bottom four strings of a Guitar so I just went for it. They liked me and I was hooked! I was in that band for over 7 years!

I began teaching Bass in 2005 when I joined The School of Rock in Downingtown, Pennsylvania and haven't stopped since! My teaching method uses a lot of Music Theory and popular, noteworthy Bass songs to teach students how to be rock solid as the backbone of a band. I am an expert at figuring songs out by ear so pick your favorite tunes and we can learn to play them! From 'never played before' to 'I wanna learn a Jaco tune (if you don't know

I can't say enough good things about Earl's instruction. He's extremely knowledgeable and talented and yet responsive, inspiring, and kind. Rather than applying a narrow and rigid approach to teaching, lessons are built around my abilities and interests and he has taught me new ways of looking at music and playing guitar. I feel very fortunate to be one of his students.

Are you a beginner or intermediate bass player interested in learning how to memorize the fret-board, find notes, play funky rhythms or create your own? Maybe you want to rock out to your favorite band and play that bass line that's been stuck in your head.

I've been playing Bass for about 2 1/2 years now, and picked up all the theory I needed to know about the bass on the road playing shows. I had to learn quick and usually on stage (while singing), so I can show you all my tips & tricks to enhance your playing or help you get started.

Whether you are planning on playing in a band, by yourself, or just want to learn for fun as a hobby, I can teach you all you need to know to meet your bass guitar goals! If you have any questions, please message me!

"This is the guy you are looking for.

At 42 I finally got around to buying my first guitar (no musical background other than fan) and set about teaching myself with books and videos. 10 months later I realized that in spite of working at it every day I was going to get to the 1-year mark and not be able to play a single song all the way through (of the 70's and 80's hard rock that I love, I could play "Twinkle-Twinkle Little Star" pretty well). I was rapidly becoming "that guy" who can play sloppy intros to 300 songs, but nothing else.

I looked around the web, and settled on Ahmad because of his credentials and reviews, and I could not be happier with my choice.

The thing that makes Ahmad special is that he put as much effort into becoming a great guitar teacher as he did in becoming a great guitar player. Every lesson is tailored exactly to my ability at that time. If ever I have had particular trouble with something Ahmad is ready with additional material, alternate ways to learn it, different ways to explain it. No matter what the technique or concept, Ahmad has seen this mistake before and knows just what to do. Some days I leave with many pages of material to master, and some days just one or two. It is all about how slowly or quickly I am picking up the new thing, and all about learning things the right way so that the foundation is solid when I am ready to advance to the next level. There is no schedule or competition (except with myself) and the only objective is to learn more and get better.

To show examples in action Ahmad routinely finds 70s and 80s hard rock for me (not every single note is from Guns-n-Roses of course, but if a particular concept relates to something in a familiar song from the genre, that's the one Ahmad will pick for me to master). You do not have to learn jazz! (I mean if jazz is your thing I am certain that Ahmad can teach you that.)

I really doubt that there is a player at any level (or in any style) who would not learn a lot from Ahmad (that is if you are prepared to be humble and possibly review some foundational material you think you know already... if you knew it, Ahmad would not be teaching it to you... he can hear that your timing is off, or if you didn't hit all of the strings in that chord, and so can your audience). (Once, while I was performing an exercise from the previous lesson, Ahmad had his back to me digging in his filing cabinet for my next materials and said "Did you play the fifth note with an upstroke?"... He heard that, it was supposed to be a down stroke and he heard a difference so slight I didn't even know I was doing it.)

If you are a beginner as I was, my advice is to commit to four lessons with Ahmad. By the end of that time you will hear that you are advancing, and more importantly you will understand where you were and where you are going. It might seem kind of basic at first (which is why I say to go with at least four) but it does not take very long to understand how much better you will be with strong fundamentals. If, instead, you learn to play badly, and you practice regularly, eventually your speed will improve... and then you will play badly fast which actually sounds worse than playing badly slow... all that work for less than nothing.

I have been taking lessons for about a year and half. I can play some Lead Guitar now. And I can play some real songs now. Even those 300 intros are getting tight, that is to say I now play them with the right timing, technique, phrasing and feel!

PS - If Ahmad says "it's time for the Harmony Classes", do it! Like most things Ahmad has taught me, I have resisted it in some way at first, and the harmony lessons are no different. Like everything Ahmad has taught me, the harmony classes have immediately made me better at playing guitar, and have provided a foundation that makes the next thing and the next thing and the next thing easier, faster, and better."
