My name is Menno Verbaten. I have been teaching bass guitar professionally for over 20 years and have worked in the music industry since 1998 as a free lance session bassist and instructor. I am truly passionate about bass guitar in all its forms. I have taught students from all walks of life, skill level and stylistic preference. I also offer music theory and reading lessons if requested. I provide all students with PDF notation and/or tablature of all subjects that were talked about in our lessons. Please feel free to contact me for any information regarding your bass needs.

Menno is an exceptional instructor and bass player. He's so kind and patient and still challenges me and is very thorough as an instructor. This is a great instructor for both beginners and pros alike!! And he's 100% reliable.
