Private Bass Guitar Teacher

I learned the bass guitar when I began listening to rock music. I would often double on bass and sax. I have a Hohner, a Stingray V and a DP Custom 5 string and plenty of stage experience.

About Hayes

I've played sax for 27 years, bass for 22, and taught many students and performed with a variety of acts. I studied music and education at Kent State University, obtaining a bachelor's degree in 2006. Musical instruction is therapeutic for some, for for others it can be a journey to some destination

Hayes is super helpful and encouraging. I walked in feeling a little intimidated because I haven't really played in 30 years. He made me feel very comfortable and motivated. Good first lesson.
George
As a middle-aged guy who has played drums all my life, I wanted to add the bass guitar to my repertoire. Hayes is exactly the right guy and was able to show me how to get off to a quick start and then be able to add to my skills as I keep playing. I would recommend him highly!

Really enjoyed my personalized lessons with Eric! He helped me with finding the rhythm in some of my original songs. He is very encouraging and affirming.
Sam
Great instructor; always prepared and patient. He works towards my goals always.
Ben
Eric is the real deal as a guitar teacher. I personally play the guitar myself, but as any parent knows when it comes to teaching your own child there is going to be some resistance no matter what! Lol. Eric is very well educated in music and has the rapport to teach beginners as well as advanced students. My son looks forward to his time with Eric and considers him a friend as well! In closing, if your looking for an instructor that has a solid music background that can channel that knowledge into your child or self, look no further!

Mike taught Leo in person before the pandemic started and has been doing online lessons with him for the past eight months. He is amazing with both. Leo has a very short attention span, but a deep love for music. Mike has been able to hold Leo’s attention every week for over a year — even during online lessons. Leo has become an awesome little pianist, and has developed a love for the piano. It has given him the ability to express all of his feelings and has helped his attention span for his schoolwork. Mike has so much patience, and always inquires about Leo’s favorite activities. He is great with kids and makes them feel so comfortable. Leo loves his “booming voice” and the free play blues music they get to play together every lesson.

Private Bass Guitar Teacher

I am an experienced bass guitar teacher with 10+ years of professional career behind me.

I'm looking for eager students of all experience levels and ages! I structure my lessons so students learn what they want to learn, while also building a strong foundation of good playing habits (learning the right songs that you makes you a better musician!). I specialize in rock, jazz and funk. I focus on playing by memory but sheet music and cheat sheets are also available upon request.
I also have the following tools available to use during lessons: sound recordings, sheet music, and more upon request.

Let's plug in that guitar and play some smooth bass lines :)

I have been taking lessons for over a year with Dee. I started with mandolin and then switched to piano. Dee is very knowledgeable about both instruments and is an extremely patient and approachable teacher. I’m an older student so I really appreciate her patience and ability to challenge me at the right level. I’ve tried other teachers that were either too rigid or too unstructured and Dee is neither. I highly recommend Dee as a music instructor, she clearly has a lot of experience and knowledge about how to teach.
Mike O.
Very patient and understanding person. At my age of 62 and trying to learn the bass along with the challenges of issues brought by life, these sessions have become therapeutic in nature....
Mike O.
Dee was very informative and answered all my questions. She understands that myself an older student returning to music has a different approach and she is going to work with me. I am looking forward to next week.

"Dustin Newbold began teaching my son guitar lessons when my son was 10 years old and continued for the past 6 years. He taught him to play the electric guitar, the acoustic and then the bass guitar. Dustin taught him tabs, chords and reading music. He became affluent in each of them.

My daughter began taking violin lessons with Dustin and then took trumpet lessons. She progressed so much in such a short amount of time.

Dustin has a tremendous love for music and is such a talented musician. His love for music is apparent and quickly spread to both of my children. He chooses music that they like to play and that keeps their interest and causes them to practice without prompting. I have always been amazed at how quickly they advanced with their talent and knowledge and how much they enjoyed going to their lessons. My only regret is that he moved away from our area. I would highly recommend Dustin Newbold to anyone of any age seeking to begin learning a musical instrument or advancing in their own personal knowledge."

"Our son took bass lessons from Alex and really enjoyed them! He learned to listen to current songs and find the bass line. Xavier also learned how to read tab, and he really enjoyed playing his bass along with recorded tracks. Our son is a pretty busy kid, trying to balance sports, school, scouts and music. We did not want him to feel pressure about learning the bass, but we did want him to get a taste of how fun it can be to play music! We also wanted him to understand that learning to play requires a combination of listening and reading music. Alex was a great fit for our son! And now Xavier has a basic musical skill that we know he can build on someday!"

What is an Acoustic Bass Guitar? A Look at the Instrument 

If you’ve ever seen or heard an MTV Unplugged concert, you’ve probably seen and heard an acoustic bass guitar. This is a hollow body instrument that is the size of an acoustic guitar, but has the sound of a bass. In the 1980s and 1990s, rock bands would perform their electric guitar songs with acoustic guitars, and bassists could be heard or seen playing these instruments that are not too common in the world of music.  But if they made it all the way to the MTV screens for decades, why h …
