private bass guitar instruction
group lessons & clinics
Lessons for motivated players and the bass-curious alike
that help you make real progress toward your goals
I am available for regular instruction on the bass guitar in group, private, or via remote/Skype lessons, and welcome students of all ages and abilities. I teach from my home studio, where all the tools needed are available (including instruments if the student doesn't yet have one). Rates are highly competitive for the area at $55 per hour and $30 per half hour, and discounts for monthly and semi-annual packages may apply. Please get in touch to discuss your needs and goals!
I believe in a holistic approach to music education; the bass guitar will be the focal point, but you will also learn the tools and skills that will make you an effective player in this team sport; music theory and application, reading notation, playing technique (including advanced articulation), music appreciation and genre studies, and more. However, the approach we take can also be based upon your specific interests and goals!
My first and dearest teacher, the late-but-great James Michael Thomas, taught me the importance of being a musician first and a bassist second. I'm happy to continue this wonderful ideology and tradition, to make you the best musician you can be.
