Lesson Details

Bass Guitar

Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate
I tailor my lessons specifically to the student, depending on their favorite music and preferred styles. My students get a well-rounded bass education, training their ear and rhythm to become versatile players. Students of mine will be able to improvise from a very early stage, quickly putting them ahead of the game. I don't teach through a boring bass book curriculum (unless you prefer it!), that way we can have fun with our lessons and really hone in on the student's needs and interests. I can teach composition and music theory in a way that's accessible and understandable as it directly relates to the bass guitar.

Teaching since:

I'm an easy-going, patient teacher who remembers what it's like to be a beginner. A lot of teachers can have a tendency to get frustrated with students. I understand what it's like to be a student, and I understand what makes students want to quit. It's my mission to make sure my students have a good time playing and improve as quickly as possible.

I can teach technique, songs, song learning, composition, improvisation, ear development, music theory, and more.

I am a versatile bass player who was played styles ranging from rock n' roll, metal, and progressive music to avant-garde, pop, and funk. I've even played shows live not knowing the songs and made them sound great. Students of mine, if interested, can work towards developing their ears and technique to such a degree that they can do the same.

If you have any questions or reservations at all, please feel free to ask!
