I believe in personalizing music! We don't learn music to learn technique and theory, but because we want to express ourselves. After years of formal music education and a Bachelor's from Berklee College of Music, I've developed strategies for integrating the study of technique and theory into learning music and songs that YOU love. Whether you love jazz, pop, indie rock, heavy metal, or anything in-between, I believe that together we can further our passion for music while studying how to sound like your favorite artists.
About Alan P.

I'm a professional bassist, composer, and producer based out of Los Angeles, Cali. I graduated from Berklee College of Music in 2019 with a dual degree in Contemporary Writing and Production and Bass Performance. During my years on the east coast, I took the stage at many New-England based venues, including The Boston Exhibition and Convention Center, The Berklee Performance Center, The Music Hall in Portsmouth, and many others performing with artists such as Tia Ray, Nana Ouyang, Insaneintherain, Sophia Lanuza and Sam Robbins. I've also spent time recording with artists like Inmo Yang and BASTARZ of Block B, as well as taking part in international tours in South Korea and Kenya. I teach Bass along with Music Theory and Writing to all levels of students, from true beginners to well-established music community members. I love teaching music through a contemporary lens and using contemporary music theory to explain and understand the music that we love today. I feel as though all music is worth learning from and is valuable, so I love students that bring in their favorite songs or artists. For students who also want more direction, my repertoire of transcriptions is challenging musically and technically for those seeking a more intense practice routine. I look forward to meeting you and to getting to grow together in understanding and loving music!

Amazing teacher. He understands how to break music down to its core components and explain things perfectly, along with personalizing the lesson plan to suit my learning style and music preferences. 10/10 would recommend!
