Lesson Details

Bass Guitar

Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate
Hello, my name is Matthew and I am a student at Belmont University studying electric and double bass under some of the greatest bass players in the country and gain personal insight on their teaching styles as well as what makes great bass players. However, I understand that lessons with these professionals can be expensive and I want to be able to help students discover the joy of bass playing in the same way that I did. I treat each student individually and as the unique learner that they are and will create a curriculum for them depending on what they would like to learn! Of course there are certain things that I believe every student should learn such as scales and arpeggios and things the student shall be able to take whatever path they choose! Thank you so much and I hope to spend time with you diving into the amazing depths of the instrument that is the bass, both electrically and acoustically

Hello!
My name is Matthew and I am a student at Belmont University studying everything that has to do with Bass. I am 20 years old and have extensive experience teaching people of all ages both music and sports! I am very relaxed and understand the desire to learn songs and things you enjoy hearing on the radio over scales and arpeggios. Through what you enjoy listening to and playing we can incorporate everything else, such as scales and arpeggios, to help you gain an understanding for the reason music sounds the way it does and how the bass influences that! Look forward to hearing from you all and helping you become the best bass player that you can be!

I’ve been taking lessons with Matthew for the past six months and he is a very knowledgeable instructor and all around good guy. 10/10 would recommend.

Matt's a great teacher, musician and person all around. I've played guitar for years now but I always leave feeling like I've learned something useful and its never a dull time! I feel much more confident in my ability to pluck a bass and would recommend him to anyone at any level of playing ability.

Matt is a great teacher who is understanding, challenging, and nice. He is very easy to talk to and is a great teacher for all ages and levels of bass. He knows and understands his instrument well and is very motivational when teaching new beginners.

I've known Matt personally for about 7 years. He's super-personable, patient, and knows his stuff. I wouldn't hesitate one bit to recommend him!
