I have been learning bass with the Dom for over a month now. I am a complete beginner but already making good progress. He has a great knowledge of the bass guitar. As Dom is a accomplished Jazz guitar player I find it great to be able to learn songs and then play along with guitar aswell as learning music theory and sight reading. Dom is great teacher with years of experience who understands how to pace the lesson. He always give you enough to practice without overloading and follows up with emails and musical reference of things discussed in the lesson. If you are thinking of taking lessons either on Bass or Guitar, accomplished or beginner, I would highly recommend Dom Paul
Phenomenal musician, great teacher, cool cat - I rate David First INFINITY STARS. I've studied music here and there, but it wasn't until I started taking bass lessons with David a few years ago that it all came together for me. He explains music theory in a way I can understand and translate to actual practice that is not a chore, it is fun and addictive! Besides developing technical skill, Dave also helped me grow as a musician by getting over feeling awkward jamming with other people. I eventually felt comfortable enough to audition for bands and ended up in a fun one, playing out in the city even! David was there for my first gig, too. My husband was so impressed with my progress, he started guitar lessons last year and has come so far, it is amazing. We feel like Grasshoppers to David's Master Po. He is the best, ok I'll stop now, you get it.
As an adult who never had piano lessons and doesn't play any instruments (so far) I think Broderson Music Studios provides excellent instruction. I am still early in the process, but have found Gary to be very encouraging and patient. He is able to answer questions in a way that is clear and understandable without ever feeling "dumbed down". I look forward to learning more!
Jimi is the best! I took bass lessons from him for years- extremely knowledgeable and patient, an excellent teacher!
His teaching is excellent , everything is broken down to my understanding and he is a friendly person. Literally love playing the guitar, Kevin is very comical and I enjoy the guitar lessons!
I have been taking Bass Guitar and Drum lessons from Steve for over a year. Steve exhibits the utmost in professionalism and take the time to make sure I've mastered the task at hand before we move on to the next lesson. I would highly recommend Steve to any aspiring musician. Joe B
Over the coarse of 6 or so years Chris Schreiner has given me countless one on one bass lessons. Not only is he a personable guy, he always finds inventive ways to help a student succeed; Professionalism (on time, proper equipment, and real life experience), clear articulation (Terminology and Explanations), and positive attitude will not only encourage you but motivate you to do well. His versatility is also a plus. He has no problem catering to peoples musical needs no matter how far out it may be. All in all, great guy, great teacher!
Luke Daniels is an absolute gentleman, a professional, serious teacher, extremely patient, brilliant, talented bass guitar instructor. He will definitely be my teacher for life. A+ Super positive experience. Thank you.
I have had the honor of taking guitar lessons with Larry Meyer for about 3 years. Larry introduced me to the world of JAZZ and the concept of musical freedom through improvisation. Larry has truly inspired me to be a musician, and to think beyond my original guitar mind set. If you ask him a question, you will get an answer backed by a lifetime of musical exploration and experience, not to mention the serious undeniable pure talent. It is impossible to get a lesson from Larry and not be infected by his excitement of the music and the joy of revealing that infinite world to an aspiring player. I thank you Larry for your friendship and patience as you helped direct me through each musical stepping stone.
Great guitar teacher - my 16 year old son likes him and is enjoying learning to play the guitar (two big wins!). Focuses on getting the child 'making music' right from the start so that they start having fun right away and stay thus engaged and interested. Really flexible with scheduling lessons for those of us who are 'calendar-challenged'. I'd highly recommend Joey to others.
I took guitar lessons for three years with Lou at U Music and the quality of instruction was incredible. Lou clearly knows what he's talking about when it comes to understanding the guitar. He provides a holistic and fun approach to learning the instrument, backed up by many years of experience as a musician and teacher. I would recommend him as a teacher to anyone from the earliest beginners to the most veteran guitar players. I'm also pleased to say that every one of the instructors at U Music is friendly and easy to talk to. I took voice lessons with Ann (which were also fun and helpful), and I've had numerous chats about music and other things with both Greg the bass teacher and Nick the drum instructor. Great people, great instruction in my experience, and altogether a great place to learn about the wonderful world of music.
Jaf has been giving my boys guitar lessons for 2+ years. He is very patient and talented. Both boys have developed a love for music and playing, and enjoy their sessions with Jaf. My husband and I are pleasantly surprised at their improved ability under Jaf's excellent tutelage, and their eagerness to continue with lessons. Jaf is also understanding and flexible, when life gets in the way of a scheduled lesson.
My daughter has been taking guitar lessons with Mike for the past eight years. The valuable lessons she has learned from Mike while learning to play guitar were applicable to playing violin for her school. Learning how to practice, reading and writing music, playing a song by ear, understanding difficult rhythms, and being exposed to a variety of genres are just a few examples of the valuable lessons she learned over the years. Mike also recorded her playing her grandfather's favorite song so she could give it to him as a gift. My daughter has learned to love music and we have Mike to thank for that. I have also had the pleasure of learning how to play guitar through Mike. We both feel our time with Mike is always well spent.
I've been working with Andy for over a year. He's tried to work with my strengths on bass guitar and provide me with ways to overcome my weaknesses. He teaches in a way that's clear and not overwhelming and what I learn leads somewhere. I would especially recommend Andy for adults because of his patience and willingness to adapt his lessons to me, the person that he's teaching. I'm so looking forward to learning more and playing live.
I loved taking lessons with this man. He has an extremely solid foundation of both practical and theoretical knowledge and can tailor it to you depending on your level and interest. He also is great at bass, not mean or rude, and taught me something worthwhile at every lesson.
My daughter has been taking violin lessons with David since she was 9 years old; and more recently, she has started classical, acoustic guitar lessons the summer before entering college. He is a dedicated professional and diligent in making sure his students learn correct technique and become more musical in their own personal way. More importantly, David has the ability to keep his lessons fun and varied! Her lessons have always been highlights of my daughter's week! I recommend David without hesitation.
I started taking guitar lessons as a beginner a few months ago and am totally happy. Billy has given me a combination of the basics and is also gearing me towards what I want to learn, rock and metal. His explanations are clear and I come away with great notes to help me practice. I really feel like I'm coming along and that makes me excited to keep at it. Most of all, he makes learning guitar fun! Highly recommend!
I've know Jay for over a decade and have always wanted to take bass lessons. He was respectful and patient. He was also flexible in terms of scheduling and location, I live far from where he lives and I often worked overtime, so his ability to accommodate or travel to where I was, was in deed a plus. He gave clear directions and encouragement when needed. I learned quite a bit and would have continued lessons if I had the time. I would recommend him to anyone because of his professionalism and compassion as a teacher.
Brian is a great teacher, patient and easy going. He's particularly good at applying concepts and techniques in the context of real songs and real music, something I found lacking in previous teachers. Studied with Brian for almost a year now off and on and still learning new stuff every lesson. Also very punctual, reliable and flexible with lessons, no last minute cancellations. Highly recommended.

I have 35 years of playing in rock bands, on the guitar and the bass. I play classic rock and pop. My specialty is teaching students how to play in a band, what effects to use, how to read tabs as well as how to create the sounds to allow the student to stand out. Beginner, intermediate, and advanced students are welcome.
