After teaching music for so many years, I have acquired great skills. I know how to best approach every kind of student and situation, how to find the best way to encourage and motivate students. I am very empathetic and friendly and I have an infinite amount of patience. I always bring out the best from my students. I have a vast repertoire and a broad range of teaching techniques.

I adore passing my love of music on to my students. It is amazing watching them evolve and blossom as they improve playing their instruments. I love watching them form bands and begin expressing themselves through music. My favorite part is watching their self-esteem grow as they gain confidence in the instrument.

    Mirco is an awesome teacher! I have been taking bass lessons with him for the past year and he has really helped all aspects of my playing. Most importantly it has been really fun. We studying everything from Jazz, to rock, to funk, to Primus. We have covered a lot of technical things and theory, but he also always makes sure to put it into practice and apply it to something I can enjoy playing. Last but not least, he is really great to hang out with during the bass lesson and is genuinely really nice :)

    Mirco Melone is one of the top working professionals in the current San Francisco Bay Area music scene. I have had the pleasure of sharing the stage with him numerous times and he never ceases to amaze me with his musicality and deep knowledge of the craft.

    Frequently asked questions

    First it's important to get to know the new student, their personality and interests, working on basic skills for playng the instrument. Then we built a program together so the student can study and reach their goals.

    I began teaching bass lessons in Italy in 2005 thanks to my passion for sharing music with other people and illusrating all the power of music as a language.

    In almost 20 years of experiece working in music, I have had the opportunity to teach students renging in age from six to sixty years old.

    One recent event I'm quite fond of was having gone on tour with the Celtic rock band Tempest in 2018/19. We played in venues from coast to coast, some historic, some smaller and others bigger. I really enjoyed seeing so much of the United States.

    It's very important to find the right teacher. Beginning students must have a teacher with empathy, who is open and has good music skills and experience in the field.

    Students need to consider their musical goals, and how far they want to go in their musical exploration. They need to then find the right teacher matching these needs and goals.
