Private Bass Guitar Teacher

I've been playing bass since I was 11. I have a degree in jazz performance so improvisation plays a key role in my lessons, but am fully capable of teaching any style. If you take lessons with me, we will certainly cover the basics of two finger style grooves, but can easily dive into advanced techniques like two hand tapping, artificial harmonics, chordal playing, three finger techniques, and slapping and popping.

I have been playing electric bass for 8 years and upright bass for 7. I have played bass in both jazz and rock bands, with some experience in classical. With the first lesson, we will go over the string names and playing with the right hand. In the next lessons we will work on the left hand and putting them together.

Picture this....you get home after a long day of work or school, you feel a little stressed out by the world, wishing you had more time to get the endless list of things done and more energy to do them.....

Instead of turning on Netflix and zoning out, you pick up your guitar and play your favorite song.

Feels pretty great right?!

Learning to play an instrument is one of life's most rewarding endeavors, that just keeps getting better the longer you pursue it.

With playing an instrument, you will have something you love to do and look forward to doing every single day, enriching your life and those around you.

If you'd like to chat or have any questions just shoot me a message and I'll get back asap :)

Thanks for checking out my profile and I hope to hear from you soon.

"Worth His Weight In Gold!!!

I've been taking lessons with John for over a year now and I've learned so much from his teachings. He has a way of making you feel at home and relaxed during the lesson. I'm partial to playing the Blues but, he has taught me how to relate the different scales to the different types of music.

At this time I'm learning how to read music and understand the theory behind it. The stage that I am at it comes down to practice. If I put in the practice I will be ready to play for that Jazz/Blues band that I so desire.

At the end of my lesson with John, he always find time for us to have a "jam session" be it Pink Floyd's "Money", Eric Clapton's "Sunshine of Your Love", or some good ole' down home "Blues", we get it done! John is a great teacher, musician, instructor and is as advertised!

He is patient and encouraging. He affords his students more than just how-to's - he asks of them to truly connect with the instrument they want to learn. He is well-worth your investment as he will truly invest in you."

"At 61 years old I wanted a challenge, and that was to learn how to play the bass guitar. Having had absolutely no previous training, and being quite terrified, James gave me the confidence that this was possible to achieve.

His knowledge to teach a simple approach in the theory of music, his patience, and ability to instruct in a way that makes sense, made learning exciting for me.

Highly recommend him to anyone who is interested in going beyond what they think they're capable of in a caring one on one environment. :)"
