It is my goal as a teacher to give you the tools to play music but more importantly to create music.

My Teaching Philosophy

Left Hand-
Scales and arpeggios our the bedrock of music. They are the foundation of everything harmonically and melodically. We will begin with learning our major, minor and pentatonic scales and corresponding arpeggios. Once we have an understanding of those we will delve into our modes and more “exotic” scales.

Right Hand-
The right hand is our time machine. It gives us the ability to play in time and with groove and feel. We will work on rhythmic studies string crossings and practicing with a metronome. Remembering music is harmony, Melody and rhythm working as one.

For those who are new to playing music the hardest thing for some to master is rhythm/time keeping. It is the black and white right or wrong of the music world. Often times our want to progress quickly is hampered by skipping over the basic building blocks of rhythm and ...

I can’t believe how much material was covered in a 60 minute lesson! Steven was engaging and encouraging. My 16 year old son learned a lot and had a great time doing it. We are looking forward to future lessons!

Private Upright Bass Teacher

I have been playing professionally since I was 14, and full time since I was 20. I am a seasoned pro who has toured with three different Broadway shows, worked on cruise ships for six years, and played with a myriad of very famous artists in jazz and beyond. I have released an album and a single, and there is another album on the way this year. I have classical training, but I am primarily a jazz musician, so I apply the strictest of fundamental classical technique to my jazz playing and do the same for my students. Ever thought about soloing with the bow, for example? I can help you learn to do that!
I also work on ear training and theory with all of my students.
I have studied with Mike Richmond, Ron McClure, Victor Wooten, Steve Bailey, Anthony Wellington, and many other amazing players and teachers.

Private Upright Bass Teacher

As a professional upright bass player for the past eight or so years, I have toured both domestically and internationally. Drawing from these years of experience, I can help you with any thing from the basics to what to know for a professional gig. I can teach classical technique, Jazz soloing/walking, how to get good sound/intonation, and give help for those trying to bridge the gap into the professional realm.

About Christopher

In my many years of teaching and being taught I have realized that the best teachers are those who really focus on the needs of the student and help them realize their passion for playing music. This usually involves a lesson plan which combines both technical aspects and working on songs, so that

I've taken bass lessons from Chris for about a year. He's a very skilled musician and is also very good at communicating in a way that makes concepts easier to understand. He has a laid back personality that makes lessons enjoyable but he still demands effort. Overall, I would recommend taking lessons from Chris
Emily
I have no musical background, but I thought it would be fun to learn the guitar as an adult (I'm 31). A friend recommended that I take lessons from Chris; there's no question that Chris was qualified. Overly qualified! But it's not Chris' talent that makes him an effective, influential teacher. Rather, it's his calm demeanor and clear vision of how best to teach the basics and mechanics.

It's be a blast learning from Chris. Our weekly lesson is always a highlight for me! He's as great as they get.
Katherine
I’ve done both in-home & remote lessons with Chris. Chris is a really great teacher, with a deep knowledge of music theory and technique, but also the ability to adjust that to whatever level you’re coming in at. I was a near complete beginner with a lot of anxiety about playing in front of other people when we started and Chris was able to work through that with me with a lot of humor and kindness. His agenda is to work with his students on songs they are interested in learning, and along the way weave in lessons on how notes and chords work, which I’ve really enjoyed. He also teaches bass guitar to my teenage daughter, who really enjoys her lessons and has improved greatly since they began. I highly recommend Chris.

Private Upright Bass Teacher

A couple years ago I combined the upright position of my cello with the strings of my electric bass to pick up the double bass and have been in love with it since! I’ve spent a great deal of time developing comfortable technique and practice habits that I am eager to share with beginner upright bass players. I have experience playing a wide variety of styles, ranging from jazz and bluegrass to rock, pop, and country. Regardless of the style, my lessons typically focus on reinforcing a strong technical foundation (pizzicato and bow) and productive practice routine including, but not limited to, scales and arpeggios, rhythmic training, ear-training and theory, and reading (sheet music and chord charts). I am prepared to work with my students on any bass goals they have, from refining orchestral repertoire to improvising walking bass lines and soloing. In the past I have used Essential Elements 2000 and Rhythmic Training (Rob Starer), as well as several scale and theory resources to help

Kaylie
I have always wanted to play the cello but never had any musical experience. I was hesitant doing online lessons at first but that worry quickly ran away when I had my first online lesson with Jordi. Jordi was so welcoming and it made me excited for the next lesson to come! He is extremely patient and encouraging whenever I would mess up or get a bit nervous playing which helps my anxiety. I always learn something new from him every time we meet and he creates a clear plan on what to work on for my next lesson. He is an understanding teacher and tailors to your experience level and the kind of music genre you like to play. He is also very flexible with his schedule. I'm a senior in high school so I have many things on my plate but he's willing to make time fit mine and his schedule. I'm very thankful to have him as my cello teacher. If you're researching and contemplating which teacher you should choose, picking Jordi is the smartest choice! :)
William
My daughter loves her cello lessons and has made amazing progress. Jordi is both professional and relaxed which is a great combination.
Leslie
Jordi was a Godsend when the pandemic hit. I had a life long desire to make music as well as listen and learn how to relax. He has far surpassed any of my expectations of an instructor. He is phenomenal. He teaches, he listens to my questions; He even anticipates my questions. His smile immediately says “I understand where I can help.” I am always eager to meet with him every week.

Jeff brent is an amazing Musician and teacher as well as a man who cares about his students, His systematic approach enables the student to go as far as they want! He worked with my daughter who played violin and piano with Jeff. Eventually she was writing music and was second chair violin at RCC Community College. Her Piano was amazing as well. She also helped other students in high school and college. She loves music like her mentor Mr. Brent. I have also been a student of Jeff fo about 12 years. At first I knew nothing about music except I loved it and I wanted to share music with Itzel.Now, I play Guitar and I am learning how to play saxophone as well. I am also a teacher at RUSD and I use my music to help my children learn how to learn phonics vocabulary story structure and how to write a song. Music in the class really is a game changer and it really inspires my children to learn vocabulary and language skills. Now, I am a gigging musician and I have played in bands coffee houses restaurants and even the streets. I love all of it. Now I am beginning to write songs and I am looking forward to my next chapter in my Musical Journey. Music is a huge part of my life and it fills me with hope and joy everyday of my life. Thank you Mr. Brent, You are a teachers teacher and I am so blessed to have you in my life. Mr. Brent you are one of the best!

Fun, friendly, super knowledgeable. All around great teacher!

Jeff will teach you how music works in a way that is easy to understand. You’ll be happy you chose him as your teacher.

Peter has not only honed my daughter's previous skills, but introduced techniques and music theory that was completely new to her. Peter has sought out music that will challenge and interest my daughter specifically. We've been very pleased.
Brian
Peter is an extremely patient and knowledgeable teacher; it has been a privilege studying the piano and cello with him for the past 2 months. In that brief time, I have completed 16 of the 17 pieces in the first Suzuki book for cello! I have also enjoyed the piano exercises and repertoire he has assigned, which are technical but melodious. He has a great understanding of theory and technique; he is very personable and encouraging; and he was flexible and accommodating about the times and modes (in person and online) for my lessons. I recommend him wholeheartedly to other adult beginners like me and am grateful to be under his tutelage.

Peter is exceptional. His instruction is simple, straightforward and progressive
