- Levels Taught:
- Beginner, Intermediate
Apart from learning simply about the bass, I will do my best to also train the student's ear with exercises that make use of the bass as well as voice. For example, singing a brief melody and learning how to play it back on the bass guitar.
Alongside ear training, there is the necessity to introduce the student to music theory.
Of course, not all players are eager to learn ear training and theory, so I would make sure the student is comfortable with this before engaging in any type of exercises like this.
If the student simply wants to learn some of their favorite tunes on bass, that's perfectly okay with me!

- Teaching since:
Music has been a huge part of my life since I was a kid. I started drum lessons when I was in second grade and eventually switched to learning bass in seventh grade. I've been playing bass ever since (so for about ten years now).
In high school, I studied music extensively and worked one-on-one with many of my teachers to gain a better understanding of the subject.
In 2012, I was accepted for Jazz bass performance at UMass Amherst back. After a semester of intense music study, I switched majors and graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Computer Science with a focus in Software Engineering.
In high school and in college, I tutored students via an online tutoring portal (similar to TakeLessons). Subjects I've tutored in include 5th grade and 7th grade mathematics, as well as college level music theory.
I look forward to meeting you and learning what it is exactly you wish to improve. I'll do everything I can to help you achieve that goal and hopefully have fun doing it!
