Bass guitar is a very versatile instrument, it can cover almost any style of music. I have been teaching bass for 5 years and I have realized through teaching and learning that one of the most important aspects is understanding and being able to move around the bass comfortably. My goal is to help the students get a feel for the instrument and get an ear for the style they wish to learn while infusing and demonstrating the importance of theory and genre variety.

About Mark N.

I am a soon to be graduate of Rowan University, studying bass with a Jazz Studies degree. I have been playing and studying music for 16 years starting with piano at the age of 8. In the 4th grade I picked up clarinet for the school band and played that until graduating from high school. When I was 12 I switched from piano to electric bass and have been playing it ever since in various styles from rock to jazz to classical and so on. After graduating high school I started learning upright bass in college. I started teaching friends various instruments and general music theory as a freshman. After performing my senior recital at Rowan University I will officially be done with schooling and devote myself fully into playing and teaching music. I like to take an individualistic approach to teaching seeing as every person learns in their own unique way.

***Lesson Description***
-In regards to lessons it is my intention to first and fore most understand the student, what they want to learn, and why they want to learn it.
-I have a strong understanding of music theory which is something I would like to pass on to my students.
