Thanks for looking into bass lessons! I think that learning an instrument is one of the best things you can do for yourself. Playing music is both fun and challenging. It is something you can enjoy for hours by yourself, but is even more fun to do with other people. Here are a few benefits of learning an instrument:
- Increases the capacity of your memory
- Refines your time management and organizational skills
- Boosts your team skills
- Teaches patience and perseverance
- Enhances coordination
- Exposes you to cultural history
- Sharpens your concentration
- Fosters self-expression and relieves stress
- Promotes social skills
- Boosts listening skills
- Promotes happiness in your life and those around you

So let’s get started! We’ll start from wherever you are and head towards wherever you want to go. We can work on constructing basslines, learning particular tunes or styles, music theory, how to play with other musicians, improvisation, or we can just work on jamming. Whatever works. The goal is just to have fun and learn something new!
I am a gigging musician who has been playing bass for over 20 years. I have also been a high school and college teacher for over 18 years (not teaching music). I’m sure my combined experience can help you learn the bass or guitar, or take your beginner or intermediate bass playing to the next level. I do lessons in and around Murphys, CA (Arnold, Angels Camp, Columbia, Sonora).
