Ruben is a great instructor and very flexible. He tailors his lesson strategy to the student's goals and creates a supportive environment. His focus is on building a solid understanding of music structures first and then applying to the guitar.

There was some confusion with the 'take lessons' website in that it scheduled my lesson for CST when both I and Ruben are in PST. I didn't spot it until 'day of' and Ruben was gracious and flexible in still being able to do the lesson at the later time. Not his fault and I appreciate his willingness to adjust his schedule once the issue was realized.

Private Bass Guitar Teacher

I can teach 4-string, 5-string, and 4-string fretless bass.
I can show you all styles, from jamming along to basic notes of the radio-friendly variety to intricate scales that outline the melody.

I can teach you how to use a pick, which great for beginners. I also play finger-style and slap, which are more advanced techniques.

You'll learn how to keep it low in the mix and tightly maintain the rhythm section. Then if you want, stand out on a crowded stage with blistering leads and tasty slap parts!

I will also show you the very important methods to hone in your tone and gain properly to play properly with others and on recordings. I can show you how to play in lower tuning as well!

I typically will teach and write bass using tablature instead of standard sheet music. These are a simple set of lines and numbers that are much easier to read, and once learned will instantly give you access to thousands of songs.

I can give tips on playing live or being in a band, as ...

Tristan
I've taken guitar lessons on and off for a while, and Cameron is hands-down the best teacher I've had. He points out specific technical good points and bad points, and offers concrete suggestions and examples for improvement. The lesson material is progressively challenging, but not overwhelming, and is targeted to the student's interests, and lessons are fun and interesting. Fantastic instructor.
Tessa
Cameron is an excellent teacher for me. I am 11 years old and have been playing for almost a year with him. He is patient and makes me stretch to be a better guitarist. He takes time to find songs at my level of learning and accommodates my tastes in music. I would recommend him for anyone who is interested in playing guitar.

I enjoyed my first lesson with Cameron. He explained things clearly so I could understand. Can't wait for my next lesson.

Private Bass Guitar Teacher

I work with beginning, intermediate, and advanced bass players, helping them to understand how music works, how to get the sounds they want from the bass guitar, and how all of it relates to music they like.

About Rob

I'm a professional bass player in Austin Texas, the Live Music Capital of the World. At one time or another I've played just about every style of music, and I have more than a decade of teaching experience. I love 'opening doors' for students, helping them understand how music works and how they can

Rob will meet you where you are and guide you to where you are trying to go. He is extremely knowledgeable, accommodating, and encouraging.
I play left-handed, and he is the first teacher to not hassle or try to sway me to be anything but me.

He has been playing 40+ years, and proven his commitment through study which culminated in graduating from the Bass Institute in Los Angeles. He brings a level of both scholastic and practical knowledge which is well worth the price of admission.

Rob is going to provide a level of knowledge and personalized coursework that is absolutely not going to be had elsewhere. Due to my location, we conduct the lessons online. I will say it has not been a hinderance. I started lessons with tempered expectations, but Rob has continually gone above and beyond.

Anybody looking to deep-dive into the culture, craft, and practice of playing bass would be extremely well served to seek out Rob.
Sulley S.
Great teacher! We went over the different chords and he picked out a song I liked to go over together and made me some sheet music with the fret positions labeled for each note. He was patient and gave me room to fix my own mistakes.
Iavor
I'm enjoying my bass lessons with Rob. He explains every concept thoroughly and always checks in with me to make sure I understand what he's teaching. He responds quickly to any questions I have in between lessons. I also appreciate the notes he provides after every lesson as it gives me something to practice and helps me review what I learned.

"I have been very lucky to have had Vlad as my first bass instructor, in 5 lessons I have progressed from not being able to play the bass at all to now having completely learned one song and beginning to learn others. Something I appreciate very much about Vlad's instruction is his emphasis on learning theory of the instrument instead of just memorizing songs, giving me the skills I need to eventually play songs and teach myself independently. He also definitely makes the most of each lesson and has often gone over our allotted time to make sure I fully understand what we're learning. If you're ready to really learn and work hard, Vlad is the teacher for you!"
