Abe C. says, "When I started taking bass lessons with Jesse, I often didn't practice and hardly knew what it was I should study or practice next. Within a few months of my lessons beginning, Jesse had worked with me to develop a structured and completely sustainable practice routine that I stick with to this day. Jesse always pointed me in new musical directions, but it was ultimately always my choice what I pursued at the end of the day, and he'd guide me through whatever it was I wanted to learn so that I could get what I wanted to out of my lessons. Now I find myself playing along to all my favorite songs, and I'm even playing in a community band." Read more

Blair B. says, "I started lessons with Mike before my gender transition. It's no secret that female bassists can run into resistance, and often harassment, when finding a mentor. And for Trans and nonbinary folk, the scene can be GRIM. I was one of the lucky ones, to have found Mike V. He's not only an incredible bassist and astute teacher - he has basic human decency. He's also keen on organizing gatherings for basissts, so getting to know Mike opened me up to a really inspiring community. I'm honestly not sure if I'd still be such a passionate bass player without him. Definitely not as skilled! Thanks, Mike, for everything." Read more

  • Request a list of other students they've taught to check their experience.

Brett Lemley keeps the lesson stress-free. As an adult learner, he keeps every week challenging at my level & provides helpful tips and review as necessary. I look very forward to my lesson every week. Taking up trumpet is an activity that I do to keep my brain working by learning something new and Brett makes the lesson an enriching experience. He makes definite effort to try to help the student with any sticking points.

Mike is EXCEPTIONALLY generous with sharing his knowledge of both the music business here in New York City as well as with his knowledge of the instrument. Mike turned me on to so much amazing music, players and taught me a thing or two on the bass geetar as well! He is an amazing player, very patient and kind. You will learn a lot with him.
