Private Bass Guitar Teacher

David enjoys teaching students from all different backgrounds and levels of proficiency. Whether you are just starting out or a virtuoso shredder in the making, he is happy to teach you! Over all, he is fairly laid back, as long as you practice. He usually combines work with reading off of the treble clef (what he likens to "eating your vegetables." You may not want to do it, but it will make you a healthier musician!) with learning more popular songs (or songs the student says they would like to learn) through tablature and chord charts, depending on the style of the song.

David is also very pro music theory. He usually incorporates music theory into the curriculum in conjunction with the material already being discussed. He is also very knowledgeable about composition/songwriting, and if the student is interested in learning more about this area, he is happy to share what he knows!

About David

David is a successful singer/songwriter/guitarist out of Fairfax, VA. He has a bachelor's degree in Music with a concentration in composition from Salisbury University, where he also studied jazz and classical guitar . In the 25 years he has been performing (20 of those professionally) and playin

"I took bass lessons with Jason during the summer. Jason provided a thorough assessment of my skills and challenged me to improve with each lesson. He was always well-prepared when the next lesson commenced. I could also always count on Jason to patiently answer any questions I had. He is also versatile in his teachings (knowledgeable about music theory, too) and will do his best to make certain your musical interests are addressed. Jason’s calm demeanor and patience were also appreciated.Jason did a great job of making certain I was satisfied with my lesson and what I was learning. Kudos to Jason for always giving his best when helping a student reach his/her music goals."

He’s one of the best bassists I’ve ever played with.
He’s got a fantastic ear and great musical knowledge.
I would definitely recommend taking lessons from him if you’re looking to pick up a new instrument or are wanting to improve on what you already know."

"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!

What is an Acoustic Bass Guitar? A Look at the Instrument 

If you’ve ever seen or heard an MTV Unplugged concert, you’ve probably seen and heard an acoustic bass guitar. This is a hollow body instrument that is the size of an acoustic guitar, but has the sound of a bass. In the 1980s and 1990s, rock bands would perform their electric guitar songs with acoustic guitars, and bassists could be heard or seen playing these instruments that are not too common in the world of music.  But if they made it all the way to the MTV screens for decades, why h …
