Hi there bass player!

I am a professional bassist with over 15 years of experience playing live, recording, and writing. I have a deep love for playing with great time, groove, feel, and knowing the difference between the three. ;)
Not only do I love everything about the low-end, I really really love to teach. Seeing students achieve their goals in each lesson while being able to see (and hear!) their own improvements from week to week is what I'm really passionate about.
I enjoy working with students at all levels from complete beginner to seasoned professional.

If you are interested in working on any the following, I would be happy to work with you:
- How to play bass in a band setting
- Reading music
- Understanding chord charts
- Playing with a metronome
- Learning how to practice
- Scales, chord changes, and harmony
- Writing and constructing bass lines
- Time, groove, and feel
- How to get an idea from your brain to the bass
- How to be a great bassist in the studio
- ...

About Erica

I have played in many bands over the years, some you might have heard of! Playing music is my favorite thing in the world, and I'm here to help you get to know and love the bass too!

My classes are very flexible when it comes to what the student wants. I can go from just teaching very basic bass playing to advanced harmonic concepts and jazz improvisation. On the first class, I give the student the choice of controlling our lessons materials about what they want to learn. Or the student can choose to let me control our classes, in which I will bring my own materials and ideas in which we should work and will go through the whole academic process of learning music.

Studying with Chris has been awesome. We started working together on music theory and since then he has helped me to better understand songwriting, live performance and sound production. I feel so much more confident in my abilities as a musician with the skills I’ve leaned from him. Chris is patient and very thorough. There were several moments when learning music theory that I felt I wasn’t picking it up fast enough and he continued to review the material with me until I understood it. Chris is very fluid in his teaching approach. He is able to shift from one topic to another based on what I am wanting to focus on in each lesson. My favorite part of working with his has been diving deep into my original songs and brainstorming ways to improve them. Chris always has tons of ideas to offer that are rooted in theory which makes them both practical and effective.
Julia Kwamya
Chris is a magnificent teacher. I had an elementary level of music theory when we started last year. Now I am able to hear music in ways that I simply could not before. As a teacher, he is patient and has a great sense of humor. I recommend studying with him if you are attempting to level up your musicianship skills.

Teaching Style
I believe first and foremost in supporting and developing what musically inspires a student’s decision to study and play music. In order to fully develop control, musicality and understanding of the music language, it is important to focus on several components including music theory (scale and harmonic structure/function and rhythm), style, ear-training, reading and performance skills.

Expectations of Students
Like any aspect of life, consistency and patience are two very important qualities to posses when working towards a goal. The duration of each practice session is proportional to the level of the student. Learning how to practice efficiently with your instrument is key for adherence and success in obtaining your goals.

With over 20 years experience in music and over 10 years experience teaching, I use each student's unique qualities and personal preferences in my instruction. Each lesson is tailored to the needs and goals of the student. Music theory, technique, reading music, basics and beyond are just some of what my students learn as they master the style and genre of music they enjoy playing the most. Best of all, no matter the skill level my students come to me with, they leave the very first lesson with the ability to play a real song!

About Heather

"Greg continues to lead me to places unknown, like after I'd spent months working with modes and wondered what the next step was. Greg said i was ready for a looper but I didn't know what a looper was. Greg took time out from his busy day to demo how to operate it. Now I do know and the looper is an important part of
my practice routine. Thanks Greg."

"I started taking lessons from Dustin Newbold my Sophomore year of high school. I took his guitar class and learned the basics then moved on to bass guitar. He went at a pace that was not only easy to learn and memorize, but also seemed more exciting than what I would have thought learning an instrument would be. After the first year of guitar lessons, Mr. Newbold recommended that I move up from guitar class to actually being in the school band. The fact that he took me from knowing nothing about music, to me to joining the school band was an amazing feeling. This opened many doors for me, including a full ride scholarship to college for band and choir. I would highly recommended Mr. Newbold as a Music Instructor."

"I always wanted to learn bass and I was referred to Kevin by a friend. She told me she’s seen him playing in bands around the area and he could definitely help you out. I started meeting with Kevin once a week and he knew how to break down the songs to help me learn them. He started teaching me the theory behind bass guitar and my scales. Fast forward a year later, I’m not confident enough to play in a band! I can’t thank Kevin enough for everything he’s done through our lessons. I always mention him when people ask me how I improved so much. Thank you Kevin!"
