Luke is very cool and knows a lot about jazz. I used to only play in orchestra but now I play in jazz ensemble too and if there's a bass solo I don't get as nervous.

I do a Skype lesson once a month and it's awesome. Whenever I don't understand something, Luke always finds a way to make it make sense. Really laid back teacher and is super cool.

I'm an electric player who plays mostly rock but I play in a bluegrass band too (standup bass.) A million calluses later and I'm still using the stuff you taught me. He's a really good teacher for electric players who want to learn standup bass.

I took lessons from Luke when he lived in Ohio. He helped a TON with my right hand technique. Good luck out west dude!

I took about 3 months of electric bass lessons... He's a little quirky, but very chill and really patient. I was just starting out and he taught me all of the notes on the bass and how to read music. That was super helpful because now I can play in my high school's pep band without having to learn all of the songs by ear. I definitely recommend Luke as a teacher!
