Lesson Details

Bass Guitar

Levels Taught:
Beginner

Just starting out on the Bass? Don't worry, I'm here to help!
Having played Bass for over 10 years, with experience recording and tracking bass, I'll be sure to walk you through the steps of how to play the bass and get you grooving and rocking in no time!
Students can expect to start simple; learning catchy bass lines to practice with, and then learning the scales and theory going into the music they have been practicing. No matter what genre of music you are into, this is a great place to start learning the bass!

2016

I am a member of a progressive rock band and have played guitar for over 11 years, and bass for about 10. I give beginner and intermediate students of all ages a relaxed one-on-one environment in which they can learn to play the guitar, or build upon their current skillsets.

I'm very open to the students' musical interests when structuring lessons. Each student's needs and interests will be met in a teaching experience tailored to the individual. It's easiest to learn an instrument when you get to learn the stuff you're interested in, after all!
I look forward to helping you find passion in playing the guitar, and growing as a musician!

Genres of music I am best with: Rock, Metal, Blues, Latin, Jazz, Funk

Andrew has taught me so much! I am really enjoying taking lessons from him. He is a great teacher and really knows a lot about guitar. He has made learning guitar a great experience for me!

I have been taking guitar lessons with Andrew, and he has been an excellent tutor. Though I started without too much experience in music or in guitar playing, Andrew demonstrated a lot of patience to ensure that I master the basics. His patience is definitely a rare trait for a musician who is as accomplished as Andrew, and in my opinion demonstrates not only his commit to music, but also his passion for sharing the joy of guitar to everyone. As a newcomer to learning this amazing instrument, I could not ask for a better instructor.
