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.

I'm a passionate and motivated instructor who loves to share in the knowledge and joy of music.  I graduated in May of 2014 with a Bachelor of Music degree in Composition, with a Certificate in Vocal Performance.  I've sung in excellent choirs, played in wonderful symphony orchestras, and jammed in rockin funk bands, performing in major cities in the U.S. and Europe.  I recently accompanied a production of Shakespeare's Antony & Cleopatra as a violist, and am currently gigging and recording as a pianist/keyboard player, guitarist, and backup vocalist in a couple of bands.  I am also composing "classical" music for various musicians and ensembles.

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.

More Information About Bass Lessons

As you look into buying an instrument for bass lessons, you will want to keep in mind what your goals are. If you are a beginner who is going to be starting off with the basics, a standard 4 string bass will be what you need for lessons. You can choose from brands such as Gibson, Fender, or Ibanez. If you are usuing the bass for a specific purpose such as heavy metal, or hard rock music, you may want to look into purchasing a 5 string bass, which will give you access to lower notes used in these genres.
Musika offers customized one-on-one music lessons in your home - a smart and simple solution for busy parents and students. The convenience of in-home lessons allows you to save time without having to transport your child (and their heavy bass guitar) to class, allows your child to maximize their busy schedule, and provides a safe and familiar environment in which to learn.
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!
Bass is an instrument used in many popular genres, and is a great instrument for any adult to play. Whether you are a beginner, or an advanced student, bass lessons can be successful at any level. Advanced students will be able to work with their teacher to develope existing skills, and learn new ones. While beginners will be able to start learning the basics, and play along to their favorite songs!
We recommend that children 10 and older begin bass lessons. The bass is a large instrument that has heavy, thick strings. Hand strength is required to be able to play the isntrument successfully, and many of the youngest students will have difficulty with this. By playing bass, older students will also have the opportunity to participate in contemporary playing ensembles such as school jazz bands, and more rock styled groups.
