I teach beginning and intermediate Bass Guitar. The bass guitar is tuned the same as the four bottom strings of the guitar only one octave below. The fingering is the same as the guitar. I've played bass guitar in rock and pop bands and in country bands. Playing bass is a fun experience.

Speedy is an awesome instructor. We have had one guitar lesson with him and he was kind, and covered a lot of material and walked us through the lesson wonderfully.

Our first violin lesson with Speedy was awesome! He is kind and walks you through the lesson and covers a lot of pertinent material without overwhelming the student. He did a wonderful job!

Just had my first lesson and Speedy seems awesome. I can tell I'm really going to enjoy his teaching style.

Speedy is patient, knowledgeable, and very talented. This was my first lesson with him and his encouragement and positive feedback helped me solidify my desire to learn.

Speedy is a very patient & knowledgeable instructor to my super active (not always attentive) 8 year old. He has been making many improvements.

I've been getting lessons for 2 years and I've improved greatly.

I've taken lessons with Speedy for 6 years, since I was 11. Everything I know about violin is from him, and he also encouraged me to join Civic Youth Orchestra which is one of the best decisions I've ever made!

I have been taking violin lessons from Speedy for almost 10 years, and I cannot describe how much I have improved. He is a patient, funny, and kind individual who truly enjoys teaching music, as he teaches young seven-year-old's (like I was) and adults alike. I just recently began taking Skype lessons with Speedy, and I enjoy and learn from lessons as much now as I did when I took lessons in person. Speedy is profoundly organized, as he often times remembers what we worked on during the previous lesson better than I do. I would also like to accredit him for flexibility when I have a schedule conflict or cannot make the lesson. I genuinely do think that you come across a teacher like Speedy once in a blue moon.

My daughter and I feel he is the best instructor out there. So much so that when he moved out of state, my daughter still wanted to continue with him online. He can teach anyone from beginning to advanced. My daughter has been first violin for many years, but still improved her playing tremendously when she started taken lessons with Mr. Speedy about a year a go. He really is a great instructor!!!
