I just had my first upright bass lesson with Charles. Playing an instrument, when you know how, is one of the most fun things you can do, But getting lessons can be stressful. This was relaxing, pleasant and fun. Stress free. And I learned a lot. I can't wait to get back on that bass and practice this stuff.

Very patient and knowledgeable. I had never played an instrument before and had just been playing around with my bass prior to the lesson. I learned a lot and improved over the course of the lesson. I’m looking forward to working with Charles again!

After one lesson, I’m very stoked for more. Charles is patient and smart in how he teaches. Plus his price/hour is the best out there. Highly recommend!

Great first lesson! The instructor really took his time to figure out what level I was at and made sure to ask lots of check in questions. He’s very passionate about what he does, which makes lessons much more exciting on the student side.
