Buck has been giving lessons to my sons for years and we are very happy with him as a teacher. He is extremely knowledgeable in both bass and guitar. His knowledge of musical theory as well as a broad spectrum of types of music is also very impressive. He's always able to find something that my sons are interested in learning, and he is very patient with both young students as well as new students. I would highly recommend him to anyone with no reservations whatsoever.

I was been interested in learning to play the bass for a number of years and figured I could benefit from some personal instruction. I found Lou to be professional, relaxed, and easy-going in the lessons he provided. The lessons had a good mix of basics in how to play the instrument as well as incorporating music theory seamlessly while learning.

Super fun time working with Scott as a producer. He's definitely talented and learns more and more everyday, which is important for a producer, and an artist. I came to him with ideas and we both talked it out and began creating music for my new EP. It was an awesome experience! If you were considering taking lessons from him, I'd say 100% yes to that!

Rob has been giving my grandson lessons in piano since the spring of 2017. My grandson had been to a few different teachers that did not have the patience for younger children. Rob developed great lesson plans that were fun while my grandson learned. Rob's experience and positive way of teaching allows us the reassurance to recommend him to so many others. We're so lucky we found him ! Not many music teachers fulfill so many qualities we were looking for. (Affordable, flexible schedule, experience with young children and always positive and encouraging) A +++ Carol O from Wilmington, De

Cant wait for the next lesson! The first lesson went great! Having had formal guitar lessons many years ago, Dalton's Bass Lessons exceeded my expectations. To start, Dalton was there for the scheduled lesson on time and ready to go. Since it was our first meeting, we discussed my goals and he listened to me play a bit to see where I'm at skillwise. Dalton offered plenty of constructive feedback and was able to quickly prepare a personalized lesson plan to meet my goals and teach all the necessary theory. In just one lesson, I started to learn modes, arpegios, some very musical speed, strength, and dexterity exercises to improve my technique, and even some of my favorite bass players riffs for fun. All in all, I give Dalton's Bass Lessons 5 stars and would recommend them to anyone of any age and skill level who wants to learn and have fun!

Joe is a great teacher. He has been instructing my son, a16 year old, for the last 2 years and has really connected with him. He's knowledgeable and knows how to keep the kids excited and interested. He is able to split his time with piano and guitar and make progress with both. He's always on time and super reliable!!

I provide private guitar and bass guitar lessons in my studio. I am a professional musician, and I have been teaching since the 1980s. My services include instruction in technique, theory, sight reading, and song studies. I cover many styles, including rock, jazz, blues and country, on both acoustic and electric. Students set the pace, and individual interests and goals determine the subjects studied. I invite beginners and advanced players to contact me. References are available on request.

I have often been told that people who study with me reach a very high level of achievement in a relatively short amount of time. Some of my students have actually gone on to become teachers themselves.

Most often it seems that in music teaching there is a standardized streamlined curriculum, that although useful and logical in certain ways, tends to leave a lot of musical gaps in what it covers, and is also not nearly as engaging for a student as it could be. I believe I stand out through my experience with formal training combined with many other types of gigging scenarios, and the ways that I can bring what I've learned through all those experiences into my teaching. I also feel I have much more flexibility in what and how I teach to be geared toward each individual and what he/she is striving for.

I am the only Bass teacher that is going to focus on HOW you think and approach what you learn. This will accelerate the learning process and make it more enjoyable as well.

I will gear my teachings towards your strengths at first in order to strengthen your motivation. From there we will decide what genre you want to work on and develop immediately and we'll get cooking. I'm very good giving you clear cut information and sizing doses of information per lesson.

unlike a lot of current, younger guitar teachers, I teach traditional music sight reading plus key & scale theory applied to the guitar...music is a vocabulary so, just as you would use your language vocabulary to read whatever book, magazine, or web posting you like, you use the vocabulary of music to play any song you like...I know hundreds of songs but your goal should be able to learn enough about music & the guitar to play what you want to play...we can start with simple songs that I know but, eventually, you will start to build your own repertoire as well as stockpile 'riffs' & 'licks' that you can apply to songs...if you don't want to study traditional sight reading, we can build a vocabulary of chords and scales then learn how they relate to each other in the various 'keys' that songs & music are played in
