See improvements in your bass playing right away, learn how to properly groove!
Hi there bass player! I am a professional bassist with over 15 years of experience playing live, recording, and writing. I have a deep love for playing with great time, groove, feel, and knowing the difference between the three. ;) Not only do I love everything about the low-end, I really really love to teach. Seeing students achieve their goals in each lesson while being able to see (and hear!) their own improvements from week to week is what I'm really passionate about. I enjoy working with students at all levels from complete beginner to seasoned professional. If you are interested in working on any the following, I would be happy to work with you: - How to play bass in a band setting - Reading music - Understanding chord charts - Playing with a metronome - Learning how to practice - Scales, chord changes, and harmony - Writing and constructing bass lines - Time, groove, and feel - How to get an idea from your brain to the bass - How to be a great bassist in the studio - Recording your bass using Logic or ProTools - And more! I hope to hear from you soon. -Erica

Erica makes it so fun to learn the bass!

Taking bass lessons with Erica is a great experience. She's a very skilled bassist, with a deep well of musical knowledge and great taste that spans all genres: jazz, rock, blues, funk, R&B, "indie rock" and everything in between. She is dedicated to teaching proper playing technique and music theory, but she always makes things approachable and fun. As someone brand-new to the instrument, I feel like I "level up" with each lesson—which to me is the mark of a great instructor. Highly recommended!
