I started playing bass about 6 months after I've started playing guitar. I wanted to record bass lines to play guitar over on my recordings. But I also ended up being in a few bands playing bass even though guitar was my primary instrument. I started out playing a lot of janes addiction and Led Zeppelin bass lines. So I could get you started on bass or help you improve on your already established playing and style. I'd show you scales and octaves as well as slap bass techniques.

About Jeff P.

Hi my names Jeff. I grew up in Agoura Hills ,a suburb near Calabasas in LA. I went to high school with quite a few famous musicians including the guys from Incubus, Hoobastank and Mike from Linkin Park. So we had our own little music scene happening in that area of LA county. We would play gigs and parties together and we all lifted each other up to reach our goals. Any questions you have I'd be happy to answer for you. Looking forward to helping you meet your own goals musically.

Jeff is such a cool down to earth individual. He makes you feel very comfortable when learning how to play the guitar which I believe is very important as it can be a complex instrument. He is very skilled and knowledgeable about the guitar and I’m very happy to have him as a teacher. I’m loving the results so far as I can play along to some of my favorite songs.

Jeff was an amazing instructor. I had taken lessons twice before in the past decade and it never really clicked but when I met Jeff everything fell into place and I developed a whole new appreciation and love for that instrument. I would highly recommend him to anyone that is starting out or wants to take their skills to a new level.

Jeff was the best guitar teacher I’ve ever had. He made it fun to learn and easy to understand. It was low-pressure learning and very comfortable.

Jeff’s musical experience is immediately recognizable. His musical abilities are more than amazing, and he is able to customize learning to fit the student’s style and progression speed.

I highly recommend Jeff as a guitar teacher. You won’t be disappointed!
