Private Bass Guitar Teacher

I've been performing music for over 15 years. I've been teaching guitar and bass for the past three years. I like keeping guitar fun! I will work with each student's individual needs and goals. I like all kinds of music and styles so don't feel embarrassed if you wanna learn a Taylor Swift song or Old Town Road. I like pursuing what the student is interested in while still teaching essential skills like rhythm, note reading, picking, muting, etc. Reach out and lets chat about bass!

About Luke

I grew up in Beaufort, South Carolina, picking up the guitar and bass at age 13. Before that, I had a strong interest in all types of music. After learning the basics on guitar, I formed a band in my tiny hometown, constantly learning and writing songs. For college, I went to Western Washington

Private Bass Guitar Teacher

Bass guitar students start with five subjects.

1) Technique is concerned with the development of the physical mechanics involved in playing the instrument.

2) Scales are part of the basic vocabulary and building blocks of the musical language.

3) Intervals are also basic vocabulary of the musical language and progress into chords, and yes, bass players think and play chords.

4) Note reading is not required for every student. It really depends on the student's goals. However, I strongly encourage learning to read musical notation, (more than tablature). Literacy in reading music is analogous to literacy in reading in our English language. Can you imagine how much smaller our world would be if we couldn't read?

5) Songs utilize the skills and concepts of all the previously mentioned subjects and are the goal of studying music. And by the way, they are really fun to play, especially when interacting with other musicians or performing for an audience.

These five ...

Phil is a consummate musician and is extremely knowledgeable and patient. He helped me to arrange several songs and encouraged me to write my own arrangements, as that really helps one better understand the instrument. I loved our lessons on learning all the scales and modes, too.
Orlando R.
Phillips teaching is very low key and suttle but very effective. I am astounded at how much he has taught me in a few weeks.

I love to help others discover the joy of playing bass and percussion! I believe every person is musical and everyone has the ability to learn how to play an instrument, no matter how young or old.

We will explore the concept of music as a language, and together work to build a strong musical foundation. Our lessons will be uniquely designed toward each student's goals, skill, and confidence level.

Feel free to send me a message with any questions. I look forward to working with you!

Great instructor with a lot of knowledge on teaching bass guitar... on time with every lesson and flexible at rescheduling classes when needed.
Phoebe
I highly recommend Josh to anyone who wants to begin or improve their bass skills. He has so much passion and knowledge to share, and he does so in a way that makes you feel entirely at ease. The way he explains music theory and playing techniques/exercises makes things so simple to understand and work with, even as a total beginner. Knowledge and proficiency aside, he's also a joy to learn from and talk to! Every time I have a lesson I feel more inspired and motivated than before. My only complaint is I wasn't learning from him sooner!
Ken
Josh is exceptional in playing bass guitar. His overall demeanor and musical prowess, coupled with his enthusiasm of constantly expanding his abilities, only adds to his reputation of being an excellent teacher. I highly recommend him!

"I had my first lesson with Theresa today. I am very impressed. She's very friendly and has a deep knowledge of bass and music in general - she showed me some finger exercises for flexibility, we discusses various picking/plucking techniques and went over general bass playing basics (scales, metronome work) for me to practice. We also had a discussion about how great we think John Entwistle is :)

I am very pleased and look forward to growing as a musician under her tutelage."

"I met Jesse as a fellow musician when starting a band. Though I could PLAY bass, I didn't have the knowledge to apply theory and other tools to improve my playing and speed up my learning. Jesse started teaching me how the fretboard works (other than just numbers), keys, and the corresponding modal scales, and even technique for playing better. At first I was confused and impressed by this new world, but his ability to break down each element, and apply it to your personal learning style is really beneficial to any player. He's helped transition from playing bass like a rhythm guitar to playing bass like the instrument it should be, and opened me up to many opportunities to play with his other students as well. Definitely the teacher to check out if you want to improve your playing, and know you have the drive. He will call you on it, if you haven't been practicing!"

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 …
