I am comfortable in a variety of styles on the bass and teach students how to not only play fun and important bass parts - but how to embellish them and create original ones as well.

About Jared
I am overjoyed and grateful to say I have been playing music for more than half of my life. It has never stopped being the light in my day and now it is my hope to shed some of that light onto you or your child. I am a very friendly and fun teacher with a great deal of professionalism and patience, even more importantly I love teaching and music with a passion.

I have been playing an instrument since the 4th grade (cello) and, as I learned more about how music works, was slowly able to pick-up a greater variety instruments with an increasing degree of ease. In high school, I decided to pick-up the guitar just to "have fun and rock out". I joined a band, played in the high school orchestra, joined the high school jazz band and began to practice songwriting and cover songs. Still, it was not until after I took my first class on music the
ory that I knew how much I not only loved the thrill of playing music but the discovery of how it worked. With this experience I can show you or your child why learning an instrument can be not only an exciting experience but an interesting and enthralling one as well.

I have been teaching music for over 7 years and have had the privilege of teaching children as young as 4 to adults in their late 80's. I am a very attentive teacher who can not only help get you moving in the right direction but keep you on that path until your are a self-sufficient musician. A level of musicianship that simply means you can learn whatever you want on your instrument on your own, whether it be for business, pleasure or for mere self-improvement.

Through my own student career in private lessons I had the chance to study with graduates of the Musician's Institute (MI), the California Institute of the Arts (CAL Arts) and Berklee College of Music. This has provided me with an inside look into how and what each institute teaches, as well as a first hand look at the techniques and ideas that the great players from these remarkable schools have come to produce.

My formal music education consists of 2 years at Pasadena City College where I obtained my general Associates Degree (much of the studies included music) and a semester at California State University Long Beach as a Jazz Guitar Performance Major. Additionally, I completed a great deal of California State University Long Beach's teaching credential program (focusing on the teaching of history/social studies), where I learned strategies and theories of how and what to teach my students - making me that much more knowledgable of my craft. At Pasadena City College I studied with jazz/classical guitarist, Ron Berman, who has played with such jazz greats as Herb Ellis and Jimmy Wyble. At Cal State Long Beach I studied with jazz guitarist Ron Eschete, a former teacher at MI who has toured with the likes of Ray Brown, John Dizzy Gillespie and Jim Hall.

Most importantly I hope to show you or your child a new way to love and appreciate music. And to provide you with the ability and know-how to have the most fun on your instrument as possible.

*** Lesson Details ***
Throughout my lessons, I always encourage basic skills including scales, sight-reading and technical exercises. But what I hope to give all my students is a basic understanding of music and their instrument, providing them with a practical ability to navigate the vast world of music for a lifetime.

Beyond these skills, I always have songs, styles and theory for you to work on but I am often more interested in what you as an individual want to learn on your instrument. Getting to learn concepts that you have chosen yourself will help encourage practice and will make the finished product all the more the rewarding.

I can custom tailor a teaching curriculum and/or style for any of my students: we can focus on learning songs, learning to read, how to write music, how music works, and even how to play specific styles of music (including funk, rock, jazz, Latin, flamenco, classical, country and blues). I also self tailor my own worksheets and set weekly goals with my students to help encourage practice, understanding and progress. For students interested in more advanced concepts, I can also teach ear training, music theory, advanced jazz improvisation as well as advanced playing techniques.

All this in a friendly and easy-going teaching environment.

Chicago, IL
View Full Profile

I have been playing bass guitar for nearly eight years, and have spent four of those years in college for bass guitar performance. I have a very deep level of understanding with high-level concepts with bass guitar, which helps me teach students of all skill levels. Beginners students will enjoy a knowledgeable and patient teacher that always caters to their needs as growing musicians, while more advanced students will have access to a very deep well of knowledge about music and bass technique to help inform their continuing studies.

About Nicholas
I was born in the West Suburbs and began playing bass during high school. I moved to the city to attend music school at Columbia College Chicago, which I concluded with honors in the Spring of 2013. Since then, I have had the opportunity to play with a variety of bands at venues such as the House of Blues, Cubby Bear, Abbey Pub, Elbo Room, and others. With a firm grasp on a variety of styles of bass playing, such as pop, R&B, rock, alternative, blues, jazz, etc., I have had the opportunity to perform with numerous artists making original music in Chicago. Over the past year, I have also spent time touring on a national and international level with the Nick Moss Band, a blues outfit based in Chicago.

With a style firmly rooted in traditional music theory, I have a strong grasp over the concepts upon which 99% of Western Music is built,
from modern pop songs to the compositions of J.S Bach. That, combined with a very strong musical ear, gives me the ability to learn and teach music by ear or on paper, a valuable skill that any musician can use to their benefit.

*** Lesson Details ***
Lessons with me can be expected to not only go into the basic techniques of bass playing, but beyond that to the application of music theory, ear training, sight reading, etc. I don't just want to make you a great bass player, but a great musician.

Lessons with me are as rigorous as you want them to be; I don't believe in putting down students who don't have time in a week to devote hours of their time to the concepts discussed the previous week. We all have busy lives, and every student is different, so you will call the pace for our lessons together. If you are in a position to dedicate yourself to the instrument, I guarantee that there will be no shortage of material to which I can introduce you.

Here's a rundown of things I hope to work on with my students:

-Basic technique, such as finger position, plucking methods, and exercises to practice these skills
-Practical music theory, such as the fundamentals of melody, harmony, and rhythm, and how to apply these to learning new music or writing original material
-Ear training exercises to aid in discerning bass parts without the "Guess the Note" game
-The ability to read standard music notation for bass (sheet music) as well as how to interpret chord charts
-The ability to transcribe efficiently. This means listening to a track of your choosing and writing out the entire bass line from beginning to end.
-Standard rehearsal etiquette to build discipline, an invaluable tool for any musician in a rehearsal scenario
-Anything you have questions about! If you ever have a song with a favorite bass part that you would like help in figuring out, I would be more than happy to help you.

Let me emphasize that I have no intention of giving my students more than they can handle. The above list is an outline of the services I can offer, but is not a requirement for all students. Again, I will work at the pace that you decide, and help facilitate your development as a musician. That, above all, is my top priority.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Students are asked to have an amp and bass on hand. I will bring my own bass, but no amplifier.

*** Online Lesson Details ***
Students need to have a webcam on their PC/laptop with a bass and amplifier, so that I can hear them well over the internet.

*** Specialties ***
I'm proficient in most/all genres of American popular music dating back to the fifties, be it Blues, R&B, Rock, Soul, Alternative, Folk, etc.

As a fellow music instructor I know a great teacher when I see one and Nick is one of the best. His high level of musicianship and extensive knowledge inspires everyone around him.

Aside from being an amazing player, Nick is a kind and reliable person. He is great at breaking concepts down and explaining them in a clear way, which is essential for helping students through their most difficult challenges.

If you are looking to become the bass player of your dreams, Nick is your man!

Great students make great teachers!

Nick was my bass student at Columbia College - he also studied with Chuck Webb. He was an excellent student, always motivated. punctual, enthusiastic and right on top of all the assignments.

He has turned into a terrific professional player and will make a fantastic bass teacher. He knows the instrument inside out and is an excellent communicator. I highly recommend him to teach you or your child the bass guitar.

Nick has an immense amount of music theory and bass technique knowledge but I think the thing that sets him apart is his patience, reliability, passion, and his belief in others. Nick has a wonderful work ethic and will work hard to provide his student's with whatever they need.

This class is perfect for beginners and intermediate students! We will learn techniques, styles and how to craft our tone while studying the history of the bass guitar and the influential musicians who played them.

About Rachel
I started my musical path in a Ballet Studio. I fell in love with the crackle of the vinyl record playing as I learned to listen and dance with the rhythm.

I started playing the guitar when I was in elementary and took classical lessons until I was a teenager.I really enjoy the art of practice and the journey of patience. The process of learning has helped me carve out and cultivate my style of music. It's opened up a lot of doors for me in my life. I've had the honor to play with a lot of great performers and have been lucky enough to tour the U.S. and Canada with festivals and showcases such as Vans Warped Tour, South By Southwest and the Halifax Pop Explosion.I've been the opening act for Carolyn Wonderland, Maria Taylor, Tsunami Bomb, Tilly and the Wall, Basia Bulat, Rise Against, Strike Anywhere. Anathallo, Cursive, Milton Hopki
ns, and Pony Up.

When I have free time I volunteer with the Houston Chapter of Girls Rock Camp to help teach girls empowerment through songwriting and music.

*** Lesson Details ***
I began teaching as an afterschool job when I was 16. I was homeschooled, so I feel that the experience taught me that everyone learns differently and that there is not just one standardized method to playing music.

My teaching style varies with each student, but the one constant is my ability to make each and every client I encounter completely fall in LOVE with music. It's my super power.

Lesson plans are tailored for your specific needs and to help you achieve your musical goals and aspirations at your desired pace. I enjoy my students and making music with them.

Here is an overview of the lessons that I provide.

Guitar:
Finger Picking, Song Writing, Rhythm, Lead, Scales,Modes & Ear Training.

Songwriting and composition: Learn techniques, how to brain storm and plot your musical story line. This class pairs great with vocal lessons or guitar lessons.

Bass:
Scales, Rhythm, Beginner and Advanced song structure, Ear Training

Ukulele :
Technique, Intro to Chords, Ear Training, Strumming patterns - Ukulele is one of my favorite classes to teach. You simply can not help but smile when playing this instrument!

Vocals :
Breathing techniques, Scales, Harmonizing

My primary goal with all of my students is to help them make great music that is true to themselves. I also try to stick with a sound-before-symbol approach to learning music. What this means for my teaching is a focus on training both the ears and technique. I always prefer a more personalized approach to teaching, working with students to find repertoire that speaks to them and improves their musicality and technique.

About Isaac

Isaac studied jazz bass at New England Conservatory of Music where he received a Bachelor in Music and contemporary performance at Berklee College of Music’s Global Jazz Institute, where he received his Master’s degree.

Isaac is an excellent teacher and is highly recommended. His method is not centered on drills, music reading or repetition, but rather on getting an understanding of how the notes, chords work together. In so doing, the student gets a great understanding of theory and it opens the door to improvisation. In addition he's very patient with folks such as myself who don't come to class with a deep understanding of music theory.

I can teach slap bass, nice bass lines, walking bass lines, in pretty much any style of music you can think of!

About Christopher
Hello! Hola! Benvenuto! My name is Christopher S. and I am a classical guitarist, composer, polyglot, and experienced language and music teacher.

I am a recent graduate with a Masters of Music degree from the New England Conservatory of Music in Boston, MA. There I studied with the world-renowned guitarist Eliot Fisk who is a direct student of the legendary guitarist Andres Segovia.

Currently I work part time teaching 12 students guitar at the University of South Carolina, in Columbia. I also I teach ukulele, Spanish, Italian, and English to a variety of students online. At the same time I am pursuing a Doctoral degree from the university to strengthen my skills as a guitarist and expand my knowledge as a teacher for higher education. I have also just completed my debut album titled, "Anima - The Music of Spain and Italy for the Gu
itar."

This album is a tribute and memorial to an amazing journey I had traveling and living in Europe for 3 years.

After I graduated from my undergraduate degree, I realized that in order to better my skills as a musician and become the guitar teacher I wanted to be I had to travel abroad. I moved to Seville, Spain where for three years I studied the art of classical and flamenco guitar.

I studied with a international known Spanish guitarist named Francisco Bernier at the Conservatory in Seville. During this time I was also teaching English as a second language to high school and middle school students. From traveling and spending so much time in Europe, I also developed and studied my love of languages and I became fluent in Spanish and Italian.

The experienced was an experience of a lifetime and I made many friends working and living abroad that to this day, I still keep in contact with.

If you are interested in having lessons with me, please contact me and we can begin learning the art of making beautiful music or learning the beautiful languages of the Mediterranean! "Hasta pronto!" "A presto!" and "Speak to you soon!"

I can take you down the route YOU want to go, whether that is trying to progress with music theory OR simply learning to play your favourite songs, I can help you.

I believe that a practical approach is the most effective way to learn music, we will play EVERYTHING we discuss right then and there, however everything I teach I will provide written handouts for you to take and work on at home.

ALL styles can be learnt, music IS easy! It's all about making the unfamiliar, FAMILIAR!

About Jack
Hello there. I'm a native of Manchester, England now living/working/teaching in Washington Heights, NYC. I am a professional working bassist who thrives on sharing my knowledge of my craft with others who wish to learn. I have been teaching bass for 10 years and playing for 15. I also teach guitar and piano.

I started teaching bass 10 years ago to fellow students (music/non music students) at South Cheshire College in the North West of England. When I began my Bachelor of Arts Degree in Jazz at Middlesex University (London), I continued to teach privately. I also have experience teaching ensembles. I taught a rhythmic awareness class for 6+ people over a summer at Middlesex University. When I moved to the US I resumed my private teaching classes. I have taught in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, Nashville, Tennessee and New York, New York.


I have had gigging experience both on land and sea, having played in the showband on both NCL (Norwegian Cruise Lines) and CCL (Carnival Cruise Lines.) I have also played in some off Broadway productions and regularly continue to perform with various ensembles around the City and Tri-State area.

I have a strong grasp of music theory and specialize in Jazz. I believe ear development to be the most important skill in music as the ear is what we use to enjoy music after all! However I am a confident reader and will gladly help my students to develop their reading skills. I am proficient in a wide variety of styles such as Jazz, Funk, Latin, Reggae, Hip-Hop, Rock, Pop, Blues etc. So just about anything you'll want to learn, I'll be able to help you.

Learn scales, modes, arpeggios, and understand why they work the way they do. By having this understanding, you will be able to apply this knowledge to a multitude of genres. If you are just starting out, no problem, we will take it from the beginning and get you grooving in no time.

About Jason
I first began teaching when I was in undergraduate school as a music major. I was a teaching assistant for an introduction to music theory class. It was always encouraging for me to see people grow in their understanding of music and to apply that knowledge in a meaningful way. From that point on, I sought for further opportunities to teach others the wonders of music and how it could transform their life in such a meaningful way. This led me to work at a piano store near to the college as a beginner piano instructor and teaching guitar, bass guitar, and piano on my own through private instruction.

I've always saw teaching as an opportunity to share with others what was given to me in a judgment free way. I also know for myself that people learn in different ways and at a different pace. Because of that, I always take each student fro
m where they're at and help them to grow in a way that is most natural for them. This helps the learning process become really enjoyable, which often results in retaining what we learn.

As for me, I began playing guitar at the ripe old age of 13. Later on, I picked up other instruments as well. I currently play for two different bands and take great pride and joy in doing so. I am also a lifelong learner and to continue to grow in my studies of music. It is my belief that as long as we are alive, it is an opportunity to grow. Won't you therefore join with me as we grow together in this journey of understanding.

One of the lasting joys of life is being able to sit down in your living room alone and play your guitar or keyboard. And you can play for the rest of your life. Now that is a bargain. Jason Menagio can help you make that dream come true with his passion for playing and teaching. Once you get that wonderful feeling of accomplishment that accompanies learning to play music, just like a hole in one on the golf course, no one can take it away. I have taught for 50 years and recognize in Jason a unique ability to not only teach the fundamentals, understand the psychology behind it, but also to feel the passion of music. That sets him apart.

About Jimena
With only 21 years old I’m a touring and session musician, guitarist, songwriter, arranger and composer. I graduated from Musicians Institute on Music and Guitar Performance, awarded the Synester Gates Scholarship.

I've played with Steve Vai and led a solo with his band, Paul Reed Smith, Scott Page (Pink Floyd), Carlos Alomar (David Bowie), among others.
EMG and LINE 6 artist and product tester. I’ve toured all the U.S twice having over 70 live shows.
I’m part of a worldwide community of female musicians and guitarists among the best of the world.

I have participated in benefit performances, recording sessions, directed music bands, got experience teaching guitar and bass lessons for all ages in English and Spanish. I have a total of 70 live shows only in Los Angeles.

I started uploading videos of her playing punk rock covers to YT
and received attention by going viral and being mentioned on social media by some of the bands or artists covered such as Simple Plan and Orianthi. One of my videos passed over 115,000 views. I’m followed on social media by several artists supporting my work such as Joe Satriani, Orianthi(Michael Jackson), Rob Scallon, Jared Dines, Synester Gates(Avenged Sevenfold), Nili Brosh, Chris Broderick John Illsley, Doug Doppler, Melia Maccarone to name a few.

I enjoy playing all music genres in general but I enjoy the most playing and teaching metal, rock, blues and jazz blues. No matter what level you are, I’d love to help you improve your playing, technique and knowledge. From basic chords to different chord voicings, scales, modes, exercises, finger strength, speed, arpeggios, reading, music theory or ear training, I look forward teaching you and sharing passion for music.

Jimena is great to work with and has developed quite the patience for a young teacher, we had a few casual sessions and she broadened my horizons and helped me understand more of the technical side of music. She’s is highly skilled and highly recommended for any level of player. I say this as a professional musician/ songwriter.

Great lesson. I am a beginner and Jimena was easy going and adapted to my pace. I believe she has talent, experience and knows a lot.
