I have been a bassist for 45 years. I am currently Producing, Recording, Engineering and Performing. I taught bass and guitar for three years before signing recording contracts and began a career of recording and performing. From the years to 2005 to 2012 I taught Music, in Dallas, Texas at Mediatech Institue. I was sought out by the school and my first three hour class convinced me that this is how I should give back to the up and coming players. I am doing so.
Teaching is a passion of mine. I love to see students learn the many colors of chords and melodies. I have my own courses, however all lessons are tailored to the students current level. I also include creating original bass lines. I take teaching very seriously and like to make it fun!
For my beginning students, I teach the INstrument first. What each knob does, the names of the strings and the names of every note on the Bass/Guitar/Keyboard.The Major and Minor scales come next but examples of each are played for the student so that the color of the scales become familiar. I teach how to communicate with other musicians. Charts, Tabs and Nashville number systems are included. A full knowledge of the instrument and how it is used and played is my goal for each student. Keeping their individual gifts and approaches to the instrument must be recognized and enhanced.
I have found that teaching examples of my experiences connects with students. If a student is serious about learning, there's no limit to what can be taught. Conversely, making lessons fun by teaching their favorite songs or whatever it takes, is my goal. Some of my current students have enjoyed great succes in the music business. I keep every students phone number saved, forever should they need advice.
Select all the days/times the student would be available to start lessons. Selecting "3pm - 7pm" means the student can start as early as 3pm or start as late as 7pm. It is important that you select as many days and the widest window of start times for each day as possible. That will help us make a match with one of our teachers.Ok
Are you sure that's your only availability? The more availability you easier it will be to arrange a teacher for you.
