You will learn posture using French or German bow. You will be guided by me through method books and use supplemental materials I create for you to advance. You will learn some jazz styles and how the bass works in a rhythm section. You will learn about chord progressions in songs. I've been teaching upright for 5 years. You will learn to make the bass sing as a solo instrument. Most of my students have gone on to play in jazz combos and trios. I want to be your next instructor.

I learned a ton in my first lesson! Mark is very knowledgeable. He was able to break musical concepts down which made it easier to understand. He was very positive, which helped stay positive!

About Rene

Knowing at the age of 5 that music was my life, by being brought up surrounded by praise music and gospel, my early exposure to music helped me to find every Instrument and style just my thing!

so far so good. very happy my son involved in online lessons with JAMES! thank you
Chris C.
I took around 15 lessons for bass guitar with James and really enjoyed it. James was able to tailor the experience for what I wanted, which was heavy on music theory, but still made sure we applied the theory to the instrument. I had prior experience with some music theory and playing, but hadn't touched my bass in almost 10 years. James was able to figure out exactly where to pick up, provided great materials, and kept me engaged. James is very knowledgeable, a great player, and a cool cat.
Tom
James is a highly qualified instructor and was very thoughtful in answering my questions. I was impressed with the amount of resources he had on hand, such as worksheets, method books, sheet music, etc. I would definitely recommend James for anyone curious about learning music theory and/or the many instruments he plays.

Elisabeth has been teaching our 12 year old son piano for several years. She is very methodical in working through curriculum in her instruction, but also flexible to include other “fun” songs that he wanted to play to help keep him motivated. She is very patient and efficient during the lesson time. I may add that my husband is a classical pianist so we were looking for a high quality instructor. We also appreciate that she is flexible with changing lessons times on occasion when our schedule may change for a season. We’ve been very pleased with the progress our son has made under her teaching.

If your searching for an amazing teacher your search is over. Elisabeth has been wonderful violin teacher to my son! She makes corrections without being critical..that's huge!! We highly recommend her!!
Denise
Elisabeth is helping me realize a dream of learning to play both the cello and the violin in my not-so-youthful years. I deeply appreciate her patience and encouragement, her knowledgeable and confident guidance. Each lesson session is a joy because of Elisabeth's upbeat, positive outlook and her genuine desire to see and hear my playing abilities improve.

I’ve been a bass guitar player for decades. I decided to learn the Upright Bass as I’ve always wanted to play in an orchestral setting. Well, as chance would have it, I picked the PERFECT teacher. Mitch is a Pro. He’s patient, knowledgeable, humorous and a TERRIFIC teacher. If you’re SERIOUS about the bass - electric or upright - do yourself a favor and give Mitch a call.
Matthew D.
In the short timespan of five lessons, Mitchell has provided so much inspiration and practical guidance for my playing, it has been nothing less than transformative for me on the instrument (granted, this is not automatic - I’m working really hard)! He is kind, thoughtful, and extremely knowledgeable, and I think his teaching style would suit a huge range of students. Mitchell gets my absolute highest recommendation, and I am sincerely grateful to have found him on TakeLessons. Can’t wait for the next lesson!

Excellent lesson, looking forward to continuing...

Conor is an outstanding bass teacher! He has great patience as was seen in his tutoring of my 12-year-old child who has a different learning style and attention difficulties. He is an extremely talented, wonderful teacher, and is very committed to his students.

"Can't say enough great things about Daniel. We are very experienced when it comes to music teachers, my daughter (9) has been learning Suzuki violin for 5 years with multiple teachers and last year she decided to also start taking Bass. Her lessons are both challenging yet inspiring at the same time- a combination that is hard to do. Daniel listens to the student and has a natural knack for knowing how to change up the lesson when needed while still focusing on building a solid foundation. He understands that playing an instrument also needs a growing appreciation for music/songs that the instrument can play and he continues to grow her repertoire of song styles far beyond the classical that she is used to. Most importantly she looks forward to her lessons and loves playing to songs she is learning."

Since working with him, my son has qualified for Northeastern Senior Districts Orchestra and the All-State Orchestra. He has helped him take his bass playing to the next level and enjoy opportunities that he may not otherwise have had!"

"I've taken lessons from a number of double bass teachers. I've never found an instructor who gave me exactly what I needed until Geoff. He's the consummate professional double bass player and teacher. Geoff is intelligent, courteous, patient, humorous and above all knowledgeable. So, if you're a serious upright bass student, I would, without hesitation, recommend Geoff Bowater."

"My 11 year old has attended an after school music program in our district for a few years playing the double bass. When Covid hit, she was no longer able to continue learning, but her music teacher recommended her to audition for a selective music program at Berklee College of Music. That's when I reached out to Darren via his website to see if he could work with my child for the 8 week period to prepare for the online audition submission.

Darren worked with her every week on a completely new song, introduced great techniques that enabled her to learn quickly and develop new skills. Those 8 weeks were very productive as my she learned the entire song, did the audition and was accepted into the Berklee music program. Darren is a very knowledgeable and dedicated music instructor and I am grateful to him for helping my daughter get into a selective music program. The online lessons from Darren are exceptional. You will not be disappointed with his instructions."
