Everybody learns in a different manner so I strive to tailor instruction to the individual. I believe all students are highly capable with the right approach. I am experienced in most genres of music and I specialize in the art of improvisation and training ears.

About Jakob L.

Music has been my whole life since I was a young teen over 20 years ago. I was so interested that I taught myself music theory from various books I could get my hands on and started making home recordings when I was 15. I've been in over 50 bands across almost every genre under the sun.

In addition to bass guitar I also play double bass and cello. I really love the low frequencies.

Groove and improvisation is what I gravitate towards and I love being a conduit to inject more groove into the world via my students.

So far I’ve taken a handful of lessons and Jakob has greatly improved my feel and playing a noticeable amount! He is able to hone in on what I need as a fledgling bass player. I often jam with my friends and jakob has given me advice on improve my abilities and role within a live setting. Patient, well spoken and I Can tell he cares about his students success.

Jakob took the time to understand where i was at and where i wanted to go. He broke things down well and gave me clear guidance on how to move forward. I would definitely recommend Jakob to anyone looking to up their bass game.
