Private Bass Guitar Teacher

"For every good bassist, there's a dozen great guitarists." Someone said this to me when I was a young wannabe rocker, I have found it to be true. The bass is the part of the song that everyone really hears. If lead guitar is the icing, bass guitar is the cake. Learn how chords work, and how to map them easily, and let your creativity take over from there.

Scotty is a excellent teacher.
I've been learning bass from him and he is very knowledgeable in everything from the history of music, theory, techniques and much more.
Corey S.
overall good teacher

I've been taking lessons from Scotty for over a year and have learned a lot about theory, form, and style. Had taken lessons from other instructors and felt that I should had been further along after 1 year. One hour lesson time is perfect for me and I always leave wishing I had more time.

Great Teacher

Great teacher takes time to cover theory of music, and does hour lessons unlike most teachers in town who do 30min lessons. Have taken lessons from other teachers in the past, and all they do is teach you songs without explaining the reasoning behind it. Have learned more in the last few months then I’ve learn in years with other teachers.

Teaching Style
I believe first and foremost in supporting and developing what musically inspires a student’s decision to study and play music. In order to fully develop control, musicality and understanding of the music language, it is important to focus on several components including music theory (scale and harmonic structure/function and rhythm), style, ear-training, reading and performance skills.

Expectations of Students
Like any aspect of life, consistency and patience are two very important qualities to posses when working towards a goal. The duration of each practice session is proportional to the level of the student. Learning how to practice efficiently with your instrument is key for adherence and success in obtaining your goals.

"I took around 15 lessons for bass guitar with James and really enjoyed it. James was able to tailor the experience for what I wanted, which was heavy on music theory, but still made sure we applied the theory to the instrument. I had prior experience with some music theory and playing, but hadn't touched my bass in almost 10 years. James was able to figure out exactly where to pick up, provided great materials, and kept me engaged. James is very knowledgeable, a great player, and a cool cat."

"I play a few instruments and had music teachers for other instruments before, but Ahmad is the most passionate, helpful, and efficient teacher I've ever had. What I really like about him as a teacher is he customizes the lessons according to your level and need (what genre you are interested in, what techniques you need to learn for specific songs and bands you are interested in, what theory you need to learn, and etc.). So if you are at intermediate or even advanced level and like to excel further, he is the best teacher and wouldn't waste your time at all! Personality-wise he is also very chill and easy to get along with. I highly recommend him for any level!"

"Paul's great. He's been amazing about listen to me and what I want to learn. I'm actually more interested in music theory, and learning about bass than I am interest in becoming proficient at playing. It's obv that not only does Paul play both Bass and Guitar, but he understands theory and he can talk intelligently about different styles.

Overall a really nice upbeat guy too. I was hesitant b/c I didn't want a guitar teacher who also played bass. I wanted a bass teacher, Paul definitely is serious about Bass, and does NOT approach it the same way he does guitar"

After only five lessons last summer, I was not able to continue with Rob due to personal time constraints and lack of practice time, but during those lessons Rob gave me invaluable instruction, fixed my hand positions, took me in the direction I wanted to go, and as my last request from him, developed a very comprehensive long term development plan I could follow on my own, as time permitted. Rob was very patient and seemed extremely knowledgeable regarding the specifics of bass guitar technique and theory. Thanks, Rob, for giving me a direction and helping me get started the right way."
