Bass is about rhythm, but it's also about melody. If a piece of music doesn't have a really catchy or musical bass line, it will almost always feel flat. In our lessons, you'll learn classic bass lines that will show you what makes a really great bass line work. We'll also learn how to come up with your own bass lines to chords, and if you want, how to rip a really righteous solo...

About Peter W.

As a professional guitarist and bass player with a degree in music performance from Berklee College of Music, I've toured and performed extensively across the U.S. and Europe, and recorded on numerous records. With over ten years experience teaching students of all ages and skill levels, I really strive to help students of any skill level reach their full potential on their instrument.

I usually teach through the lens of songwriting and improvisation. I believe that in addition to just learning songs, students should learn what makes a song tick: how is it structured? what kind of music theory does it use? How can a student use what they learn form a song to write their own music? I tailor my lessons to the age and experience of each individual student, and work with the student to constantly readjust lessons as necessary to meet their needs and interests. Lessons with me are always fun and relaxed, but focused. I want to help you get excited about your own increasing ability. If I can inspire you to work hard at your instrument on your own, then I feel like I've really done my job.

I wanted to learn some Black Sabbath songs for my dad’s birthday and Peter was extremely helpful instructing me to do so. He was extremely patient with me and my lack of rhythm.

Peter is hands down the best teacher ever! I had such a hard time learning the basics of acoustic, but he taught me so many tricks and made the learning process smooth. I feel like a pro now! Will be continuing learning from him!

Peter is a knowledgeable & super patient instructor, which made me feel at ease as a total beginner. I can tell that I'm visibly improving with each piano lesson and look forward to taking more of them. I would highly recommend him as a teacher!

Peter is awesome! I got back into playing guitar after a (very) long hiatus. It's super fun to learn to play again, and he is patient with me. He knows a lot of music theory and is walking me through the basics in a way that's easy to understand. Thanks Peter!
