I've been playing the bass since I was 12.  I picked the bass because I wanted to be in a band with my friends, and since I already played the cello, I figured bass would be an easy transition.  It was only after I had been playing for a couple years that I realized what a great choice I had made, and what a vital role the bass has in every style of music. I attended Berklee College of Music in 2002, and graduated in 2006. I've been playing professionally in a wide variety of genres ever since.

Bass Guitar ·

Great dude, even greater Teacher.

I have only had Jacob for 3 lessons so far and I have already seen a massive improvement in my technique and knowledge of the bass guitar. Jacob is great at using the musical knowledge I already posses and translating that towards bass performance. So far every lesson has covered tons of ground, and he offers a great rate for a 1 hour lesson! He even did the first lesson for free!

Jacob is very good at communicating ideas and is totally open to questions so I never feel self-conscious about my own skill. And during the lesson it is very clear Jacob really wants to help you GET BETTER, not GET THROUGH the lesson, which is what I have sometimes experienced with other teachers. I guess I should also mention Jacob is a fantastic bass player and tons of experience in several bands and genres. I am so glad I ended having Jacob as my teacher and I am really excited to see where my skills are at in just a few months!

Seriously, PICK THIS GUY!
