Bass Lessons in Cleveland

I offer a complete system for learning the Bass Guitar. What are your goals as a bass player?

What can I learn on the Bass Guitar?

When you study with me, you will ultimately develop a system of knowledge that leads to mastery of your instrument. This will help you express yourself, with music, to the fullest of your potential.

What are some Techniques on the Bass Guitar?

I make it fun and easy by providing great examples for you to play and taking it step by step; in my comprehensive and empathic teaching style.

Interactive / Multi-media

I can show you how to use a computer to compose your music. For example, the free program Audacity.

Got a loop pedal or other effects pedals that you want to learn how to use? Let's wipe the dust off those instruction manuals and I'll show you how to get the most out of your effect pedals!

Songwriting Lessons

As a composer, I always analyze songs from a songwriter's perspective. I can show you how songwriters think. For example, I can help you with ideas for accompaniment for your songs. I will show you how to count time in the song (understand the time signature and count the bars and beats for each section.)

Opportunities for students to play out/perform

I've seen my students go from learning their first songs to performing at open mics and live events. I can keep you in the loop about good open mics, drum circles, and music-related events in the Cleveland area and help you get ready to perform in front of a live audience, if that's your goal. I encourage my students to take advantage of all these opportunities.

I teach something that other instructors cannot replicate; my perspective

In other words, no one will teach you the same things, in the same order and give you the same feedback as I would. Every lesson is a unique experience.

Advanced Lessons

Already play the bass and know some music theory? Maybe there is a style or technique that you need help with. Maybe you need help improvising and jamming with someone. Try one lesson; perhaps there is something I can show you that you don't know already. Want to learn how to play with others or in a band setting? I have guitars and a drum set that I could use during the lesson.
