I'm providing fun and engaging lessons for a wide variety of students, from beginner to intermediate! My priority is helping students reach their musical aspirations, by creating and maintaining simple and effective practice routines. I like my lessons to be fueled by the interests of the student, not a strict curriculum or regiment. I believe that music should be fun and constantly inspiring, so why should lessons or practice be anything but?

I've spent the last 7 years learning music as a Bass player and Producer through Self-education, private lessons, and at the Collegiate Level (Berklee College of Music).

I like to keep things simple and find the best approach for each student to learn what they want at their own pace.

I specialize in:

- Teaching beginners (anyone just starting out with minimal or no experience)
- Applications of Music Theory
- Ear Training and Listening Skills
- College/Conservatory Preparation or Audition Prep
- Audio Recording and Production

Here are some general topics that I often cover in lessons!

- Learning Songs (By ear or chart/sheet music)
- Ear Training Skills
- Groove and Rhythm/Feel
- Music Theory
- Comping or 'Jamming'
- Playing with Others
- Proper Left and Right-hand Technique
- Creative Approaches to Practicing

About Chris P.

As a teacher, I hope to help students of all ages and abilities explore their love of music and Bass Guitar by improving on fundamental skills that all musicians should possess. I aim to build healthy practice routines that encourage students to pick up the instrument every day and provide exercises that engage them on multiple levels.
I strongly believe that music should be a fun and fulfilling outlet for every student. Keeping that in mind, I work closely with them to achieve their goals: whether it be preparing for College or gig auditions, or simply exploring new styles and techniques, while finding ways to make the process as positive and stress-free as possible.
With 7 years of playing experience, I am currently a student at Berklee College of Music, having studied Performance and Music Production/Engineering. I have experience playing in styles ranging from Pop and Rock to Jazz, Funk, Country, Bluegrass, and more. Additionally, I have experience playing in ensembles of varying sizes, Pit Orchestra, and studio sessions.
In my lessons, I use music theory, and ear training on a regular basis to teach music through a holistic approach. Students will be using these skills to build repertoire, advance technique, and improve in areas like rhythm and time feel as well as reading abilities.
Beyond playing and practice, I hope to help my students continue to find joy and passion for music!
I look forward to working with you very soon!
