Dom is my current teacher, I can only recommend him: beyond his wide knowledge and experience with music, he is a kind, fun, and patient person who makes it all easier for total beginner learning bass guitar like me. No hesitation here, if you are looking for a good teacher on the UWS he certainly is your go-to person.

I've been working with David as a "beginner" bass player for only a few weeks at this point, but I am already seeing really remarkable results, even in such a short time. He is very clear in his explanations, methodical, patient and knowledgeable. My lessons are a good mix of theory and practice (which is in response to my expressed interest in knowing more compositional theory). I feel much more confident about my bass playing, and am able to communicate better with band members. Most importantly, I have confident that with his continued guidance, I will be able to reach a level of competency and creativity. Based on my experience, I recommend him to anyone who want to learn the bass guitar, without any reservations.

Mr. Batchelor gave me lessons for the electric bass guitar. His teaching was set to my personal needs as a musician, rather than being forceful. I was able to quickly regain my confidence as a bass player and improved greatly over a short amount of time. The theory that he taught me through the bass helped me get into my college's music conservatory. I now study Music Studio Production at Purchase College. Very good man, teacher and mentor

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!

Awesome teacher, a lot of guitar teachers dont focus on theory or teaching you how to understand guitar and instead focus on songs and I'm glad to say Kyle isn't one of those teachers

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.

Marc has been teaching my daughters piano and guitar for 15 years. During that time he not only taught them how to play instruments, but also inspired their love of music. They talk about favorite artists and share playlists. My older daughter is now in college and looks forward to continuing her lessons with Marc when she's home for vacations. Marc is a great teacher for kids (and adults) of all ages.

Erik has been my piano/guitar teacher for about 6 years and the experience has been excellent. His knowledge of instruments and music as well as his ability to teach made learning very simple and entertaining. He's always been patient with my brother and I and every lessons ends with us learning something new about music. I highly recommend him as a teacher.

My 12-year old nephew has been taking guitar lessons with John for about three years now and I can't believe how much he has improved! John is patient, kind and inspiring and my nephew is always excited for his next lesson with him. We have had a couple of teachers before John but John is by far the most experienced and motivating. He also has a very structured approach to the lesson and my nephew always walks away with a clear idea of exactly what he needs to practice. I should also mention that my nephew is interested in many different types of music and John is knowledgeable in all fields, and is happy to cater to my nephew's musical tastes while at the same time maintaining an organized teaching regiment. I would recommend John for anyone, he is a great teacher all around!

Kiyoshi is an excellent guitar teacher and a fun person to hang with for an hour. He has knowledge in a variety of musical genres, something that was important to me. I've been playing by ear for almost 50 years and wanted to go back and learn theory and technique, on both acoustic and electric. After just 3 months I can now easily transpose to different keys and am beginning to learn how to improvise leads based on a variety of scales. When teaching a song, he emphasizes technique in terms of rhythm, emphasis, tone, muting, bending, and attack. All great: I look forward to the lessons every week.

Today was my first bass lesson with Junichi. After carefully reviewing all my options all I have to say is I'm extremely satisfied. From the moment I arrived he made me feel right at home and started playing a song by Harabe de palo: La Flaca which I've always wanted to learn. I was impressed with Junichi's ability to keep me relaxed throughout the entire lesson. He pointed out several software programs he uses with students to facilitate the learning process and maximized use of time. Can't wait till my next lesson! We need more instructors like Junichi!

Yeah.... I think Billy's an excellent instructor. The quality of his lessons are top notch. He always comes in with a lesson plan and it begins from there, before you know it you're playing a bass riff or two from the lesson you just given. And he also playing along with you. I find it to be a lot of fun, and I haven't had as much fun with learning since Junior High. I'd recommend him to anyone who'd want to learn how to play bass guitar.
