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

Online Bass Guitar Teacher

My bass experience began later than my guitar experience, but I pursued it just as fervently! Over the last 13 years or so of playing I have played bass in many projects. From alternative, to metal, to folk, to indie-rock. I've been a guest studio bass player on a good number of tracks and still continue to play and teach today. I play bass (in addition to other instruments) almost nightly at the a dueling piano club I regularly play for.

Most bass teachers that also play guitar are really just guitar players that can play their way around a bass on a basic level. However, there is much more to a bass than just playing what a guitar player or other musician might be playing!

The bass is a unique and colorful instrument in its own right. It shares some things in common with a guitar, but has a wide range of its own qualities and abilities. The bass plays a PIVOTAL role in almost all music. I would argue that it is even MORE crucial than many other instruments like guitar or ...

About Andrew

Music is my life. As cheesy as that phrase goes, for me, it holds true. Everything I do and have been doing has been geared towards music. I've been in one working/gigging band or other without break for the past 10 years. I began intensely learning to play guitar at the age of 9 and have not stop

Kyle
Incredibly knowledgeable in physical techniques required for guitar; He is a master of all the subjective hands-on knowledge you can't learn from a video or a book, like individual hand/wrist placement, strength building, muscle memory, string bending. His curriculum is excellent for developing the raw ability to play as desired.

We initially did lessons in person then transitioned to Skype once I moved away. I found no difference between in-person or Skype.
Alex
Before I became a student under my teacher, I thought that my previous teacher was good. However, looking back, my first teacher (Not Robert Grant), was horrible. The one distinct difference between many of the casual guitar teachers and Robert is that he has a great curriculum for teaching kids and adults the proper techniques, different styles, and practices for playing the guitar. I remember on the first lesson, he immediately commented my wrong form for my picking hand. Since then he has assisted me in correcting bad technique, pursuing my strengths and passions, and expanding my knowledge in music theory, both specific for guitar and for music in general. His curriculum is equal if not better than many college courses for music(classical, jazz, etc. courses). I have been with him for 3-4 years now and I find myself greatly improved from when I first started. I would recommend going to Robert if you want to seriously learn how to play the guitar with a brilliantly structured course.
Justin
I've been playing guitar for 28 years and Robert has done more to advance my playing in the last 5 months than anything else I've done over that time. Whether online or in person, Robert has a great mix of laid back attitude with a task-master's approach; he encourages his students to have fun with the guitar, but to take it and their work with it seriously. In a really short time, I've picked up a wealth of music theory and my technique has improved dramatically. Most importantly, I'm having more fun playing than I have in years. I can't recommend Robert highly enough.

I will work on technique,improvisation in jazz and other styles,classical repertoire, playing different grooves,constructing bass lines, and overall bass playing (accompanying)

I will also work on styles such as RnB, Soul, Rock, Pop, Fusion, and Country.

I will mainly focus on learning new music and applying new techniques to new songs. We can also focus on real world application of various techniques. These might include bass line construction, ear training, composition, and reading.

"I loved my lessons with Omar! He's very knowledgable, and not just about the instrument but music in general. He worked with me for about 7 months to help achieve my goal of learning to improvise on the bass guitar. Omar is very easy to talk to and very funny. He knew how to take complicated music theory and really break it down so that I could understand it better. I left each lesson with an assignment, a technique or a song to practice what we learned in that week's lesson.

I feel very comfortable with being able to be at a jam session and play along with the rest of the group. He taught me how to come up with licks using factorials, how to create a solo using modes and adding some flavor to the solos with techniques such as pop and slap or changing the tempo.

Thank you, Omar, for being such a great teacher! I feel much more confident in myself as a bass player because of the time you spent with me and all of the knowledge you departed onto me. I am very appreciative of you for that - thanks again!"
