Travis S

Instruments:

I'm a passionate and experienced instructor who's love for teaching and music is personified through each and every student I teach. I have been a musician since grade school playing percussion for the school band. I am a professional musician as well and have unlimited experience as well as knowledge to share with my students. I also have a bachelors degree in Music and Sound recording from The University of New Haven. My goal as a teacher is to give my students not only exposure to different types of music, but to help them work hard towards reaching their own personal goals.

Anne-Marie S

Instruments:

I'm a musician who is as passionate about teaching as I am performing. I graduated from the University of Texas with an honors degree in Philosophy with a Music minor.  Since then, I've been working as a performing musician and teacher, playing in various groups around town and at festivals. 

Marcus R

Instruments:

I'm an enthusiastic and driven teacher who loves to help students realize their personal musical goals. In 2012, I graduated with a Bachelor of Music degree in Composition from Trinity University and in 2014, I earned an MFA from the California Institute of the Arts. I've performed a wide variety of music with everyone from orchestras to pop and folk bands throughout my life. I've also consistently written my own music and performed it in a variety of settings, including recently completing a national US tour of my original songs. My studio reflects these various interests with a clean environment and an organized collection of instruments and books. 

Adam N

Instruments:

I began my musical training at age 8, began playing professionally as a teenager, and have been teaching for 15 years. I graduated from Northern Kentucky University in 2011 with a Bachelors of Music Education, with a minor in Percussion Performance. I am very fortunate to have the opportunity to perform several nights a week around Austin, and to have toured the US multiple times during the past two years. In addition to teaching and performing, I have also written many works for concert band, percussion soloist, chamber groups, jazz ensemble, and percussion ensemble.

More Information About Bass Lessons

The most popular instrument with beginning bass students is your standard 4-string bass. This will be more than sufficient for you to learn and develop your skills on as you begin and continue on with lessons. Most all music stores will have a variety to choose from such as instruments made by Ibanez, Fender, or Gibson. If you are going into lessons with the goal to play heavy metal, or rock music, you may want to look into a 5 string bass. This extra string allows the student access to lower notes, which are used in those genres.
In home lessons are great for both adults and children alike. Everyone has a busy schedule, and by choosing in home lessons you are making learning an instrument extremely convenient. There is no need to spend time and money traveling to a studio, when you can have the teacher come right to your home. Not to mention, you are then able to learn your instrument in the comfort and security of familiar surroundings, adding to your enjoyment of the lessons!
Our teachers create a customized lesson plan for every student. Many teachers will recommend a commercial method book or two full of exercises and techniques for practice, and may also bring in many supplemental materials for you to study as well. Topics covered during Musika's bass lessons may include, but are not limited to: learning the notes of the bass, proper fretting, fingering, and plucking technique, how to read music, how to create solid bass lines for rock, pop, jazz, and blues, and most importantly, how to have fun playing the bass!
Any adult can start bass lessons with Musika. Even with no prior experience, bass can be a great instrument. Bass is utilized in many popular genres and adults can learn to play along with their favorite songs. Not to mention, our in home lessons offer a very convenient way to add a new instrument to a busy schedule!
Bass lessons are a great option for teenage students. By playing bass, students open themselves up to be able to play in ensembles such as jazz band, and other more contemporary groups. Older children and teenagers work better with the bass as it is a large instrument with heavy, thick strings which require hand strenth to play.
