I took electric bass lessons with Todd Ellsworth for almost 2 years. I had a decent level of experience when we started, but with him it took my playing to a whole new level. While working with him I saw how a professional musician works and makes a living. I learned the inner working of jazz bass lines and the importance of sight reading. His speaking about his career in music in Nashville TN wass one of the reasons I decided to go to music school. All around a fantastic teacher for any level of bass player looking to improve.

I really enjoyed and greatly benefitted from my singing lessons with Sarah. I used to find the bridges in my voice (transitioning from chest to head voice) made me feel less confident with songs that sat in an awkward range, but the exercises Sarah gave me really helped smooth out the sound across my whole range. Since she recorded every lesson I could hear the difference of how I sang the song before and after the exercises and the sound improved so much! If Sarah hadn't moved away, I would still be coming to her for lessons!

I've only had one lesson, but his lessons are tailored to the student which is great. He communicates well and leaves no surprises. I highly recommend Marshall.

Responds quickly. My son loves video game music, and Edward is great in this area. For the first lesson, he gave my son a good overview of options.

Jordan provided guitar lessons for my son for 2.5 years. My child did not have any previous experience with a guitar or with music in general prior to his lessons. Under Jordan's guidance, my son has not only learned the basics, but he has learned to love music. My child can now play classical, jazz, and rock; he has even performed some Ozzy Osbourne for a talent show in front of over 150 people at school! My son has gained confidence in himself and his musical ability through his lessons. I am so glad that Jordan was able to work with my child!

I loved the way he presented music to me, I had been struggling for a long time with the guitar and he got me playing my favorite song in a month, and singing along too!! The class was fun and dynamic so I was never bored or uninterested. Thumbs up!

About

I began playing the tuba in the 7th grade, which taught me how to read music. Since the bass guitar and the tuba's music notation is exactly the same, I began playing bass in 1992. I played lead guitar for 22 years, prior to changing to bass. I'm 55 years old, and have over 40 years of experience playing in bands (since I was 14). For three semesters, I studied music at Va, State College (present Va. State University) while marching in the band. My services include a bass guitar and beginner's book available for the student, until they can purchase their own. I have a studio behind my home (used for band rehearsals), where the lessons will be given. Other items provided are bass amp, cable, guitar stand, and audio system for listening purposes.
