Introduction: I use my decades of musical experience to help people reach their own musical goals, whether they've played before or are complete beginners. I'll give you concrete goals and ongoing motivation in a friendly, nurturing environment, teaching from my location or yours. I like watching the "Ahha" moments when my students suddenly "get it." They come in thinking they don't know something or don't know how to do something. Then, I show them or tell them, and they realize that that new knowledge wasn't really that big a secret. They just needed a little help locating it.

Bass Guitar Lessons (for adults)

Writing this review for the second time thanks to Thumbtack's requirement that I have an account first. Nonetheless,I would recommend Lou Savage very highly. Not only is he an extremely accomplished musician, he can teach other people to sing or to play a musical instrument. You will learn more in half an hour with Lou than you could learn in a month of tabs or "reading music" lessons or "how to" music books. He truly knows music and how to teach music.

Singing Lessons

Took a voice lesson with Lou to tighten up on some weaknesses in my vocals. I found Lou to be very knowledgeable about music in general and very practical in his approach to teaching voice. I look forward to a continued relationship w Lou and much improved confidence and practical knowledge about singing.

Lou is great! He is an amazing musician and teacher. He has taught my son guitar for a few months now and I'm impressed with how motivated my son is to practice after each lesson.

I have been taking voice lessons from Lou Savage for a few months now he is excellent. He has a great way of referencing a movie or describing a great meal or talking about how a sailboat sails on the water, and how these references can influence singing and learning how to use one's voice in performing. I have really enjoy my time with him. Thank you for everything Lou.

Bass Guitar Lessons (for adults)

I have been playing bass for over 20 years but always considered myself a mediocre player at best. I wanted to bring my playing to the next level and eliminate my crutches (tab) and bad habits. At the time of this writing I have had two lessons with Lou. I knew within 5 minutes of the first lesson that I had picked the right mentor. Very cool guy with a ton of knowledge. Lou is patient and is good at explaining theory. Mastering music theory and becoming comfortable with an instrument is definitely challenging but I feel comfortable with Lou and confident that I will eventually reach my personal goals with his guidance. Highly recommended.

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I charge by the month. Visit "pricing and details" at my website. Fees are $35/30 minutes, $50/45 minutes, $70/60 minutes.

  • How did you get started doing this type of work?

    Most... actually, "all" professional musicians will say that they didn't choose playing music, music chose them. As far as teaching, you could say that I just wanted to do for others what my teachers did for me. I look back at my teachers with with warmth and fondness.

  • What types of customers have you worked with?

    I work with every type of person, aged 4 to 82, students, professionals, doctors, lawyers, moms, dads, plain-old people... every type. The interesting thing is, that no matter what you do or how well you do what you do, everyone starts from step one when learning music. The way of thinking is completely different. Whatever thinking strategies you've used to get where you are, they rarely work when learning an instrument. The reason is that music uses a completely different area of the mind than most other professions. Aspects of it are rational, but one needs to train one's self to access a new part of the mind. It's a simple process, but we often can't see how simple it is.
