Jason D. says, "As an adult taking Bass Guitar lessons, I appreciate Ben's patience and methodical process to teach the Bass Guitar. He has an excellent set up to show students how to maintain their instrument (string replacement, tuning, etc). Ben takes time to explain how the instrument is built and works. He works with you to find and achieve goals in your learning experience. Not only does he provide guidance he is an excellent musician and will demonstrate various techniques and music styles (jazz to speed metal). I highly recommend Ben for any lessons on Bass, Guitar, or Ukulele." Read more

Elias R. says, "I’ve been a student of Chris’s for going on 2 years! When I first started off with Chris I had very little understanding of lead guitar and a lot of rhythm guitar. Now I have a much better grasp on the concepts of lead and rhythm guitar. Over the last 2 years I’ve been able to learn loads of songs from my favorite guitarists like Jimi Hendrix, David Gilmour, and John Mayer. Not only has he taught me how to play their material, he has also taught me the techniques they use and how to apply them to my own style of playing. Without a doubt Chris knows his material and can play literally everything. He’s given me plenty of tools to become a successful guitarist and he’s taught me that in order to become a good guitarist you have to be willing to put in the work! Chris has also been very flexible over the last few years with my work and school schedule which has really helped me fit my passion for guitar into my normal busy life. You won’t regret having him as a teacher. The lessons are awesome especially if you ask a lot of questions and present him with the type of music you want to learn! " Read more

Reviews for Milpitas bass guitar instructors

Recent success stories from people in the Milpitas area.
Tom M.
In the course of a year Ben has introduced me to a variety of ukulele playing techniques (strumming patterns, fingering, muting, hammer-ons, hammer-offs, overtones, slides, pinching etc.) some of which I've been able to learn and execute with some proficiency. He's also taught me how to look at sheet music and puzzle out for myself fingering for melodies and chord fragments based on the chord structures to which these melodies and chord fragments are associated. In this time I've gone from being a nearly 60-year old complete beginner to being someone able to competently play melody and/or chord lines for the following songs "Fly Me to the Moon", "Walk Don't Run", "Sounds of Silence", "Kawika", "The Entertainer", "Hide Away", "Crazy", "Sweet Lelani", "Tears on My Pillow", "Behind Blue Eyes" "Breakdown", "Killing Me Softly" "White Christmas", "Mele Kalikimaka" "Vietnam", and some others.
