Bass Guitar · In home

Keith has done a wonderful job introducing my son Thomas to bass guitar. From the first lesson my son enjoyed Keith's style of teaching. Keith is very flexible in adjusting to the learning style of the student. My son had particular songs he wanted to learn and Keith was open to helping him become familiar with the instrument through the songs that appealed to Thomas. I would highly recommend Keith for students at all levels. Keith is an experienced, personable, and talented teacher.

Helped me out in a jam with my Shakespeare class at NJCU. Was able to meet up with him in the campus library. Helped me understand King Lear so well that when it came to writing my essay on it, I didn't really need his help, save for some basic proofreading. Highly recommended.

I was a stubborn student, but Keith helped me explore different ways to think about chords and picking styles. It definitely helped in regards to my development as a guitar player and song writer and I am happy to have had him as my instructor! :-)

My 5 year old started with Keith while he was working at Jaime's Music in Bayonne. I've had nothing but a great experience with him. I was apprehensive at first, as I was told by other teachers that five was too young, but Keith helped us find the right guitar for him. My son is seven now, and although Keith isn't his teacher anymore, he's made a lasting impression. I even learned a little guitar, too!
