Hi, my name is Nate W. I'm an electric bassist and pianist with 16 years of experience playing in various groups - from classical to jazz to rock. I've been giving bass (beginner-advanced), piano (beginner), and music theory (beginner-intermediate) lessons since 2012.

I studied composition and performance as a Dean's List student at Berklee College of Music, and graduated with a Bachelor of Music degree. While there, I studied with some truly gifted musicians including Victor Bailey and Danny Morris. I also attended master classes with world renowned bassists such as Bootsy Collins, Ron Carter, and Victor Wooten.

· Piano · In home My son Noah is enjoying his lessons with Nathan. He thinks they are fun and he's progressing well. Nathan keeps him motivated with short daily "homework" practice sessions.

· Piano · In home Nathan was great. My son didn't want to take piano lessons at first, but had completely changed his mind by the end of his first lesson. He said Nathan was "so cool" and he showed me all the things he learned in his first 30 minutes. We can't wait to continue his lessons.

· Piano · In home Nathan taught my three children for only about six weeks, unfortunately, due to his relocation, but he kept the kids interested, engaged, and challenged. He always made sure that lessons were fun and energized. We will miss him and wish him the very best in the Boston area!
