I like to think my forte is showing students what they need to practice in order to jump right in and jam with other people. To excell with my teaching style, a student need not know how to read music or tabulature. Also, absolutley no musical ability or previous experience is needed other than a good sense of rhythm. I enjoy watching my students enjoying playing music with others. I've been playing stringed instruments for 61 years and jamming is the ultimate experience....

I provide a developed curriculum that includes print outs to take home along with teaching you how to maximize your practice. Lessons are aimed at your goals as we take songs you want to play and dive into the music theory behind them while we play! I am currently a fourth year pre-med student studying at San Diego State University. I started guitar lessons when I was eight years old after having played piano previously and have been playing music ever since. I play lead guitar in two active bands, performing predominantly original songs with one focusing on indie/rock and the other mainly playing jazz. I also excelled at AP Music Theory in

Are bass guitar lessons worth it?

Bass guitar lessons are worth it to master those frets faster so that you can get confident enough to play for others.

A bass guitar teacher understands how to help you:

  • Put less emphasis on chords and more on single notes and scales
  • Master your key genres like jazz, rock, pop, and funk

What age is good to start bass guitar lessons?

You can start bass guitar lessons for kids from the ages of 6 to 10 years old or whenever they can hold the instrument with enough hand strength to press on the strings. Any age is good for adults to start bass guitar with the right assistance and regular practice.

How many bass guitar lessons do I need?

The number of bass guitar lessons you need varies a lot according to what you want to achieve and how hard you practice. You could expect to play a simple song after 2 to 6 months. However, mastering the guitar professionally typically takes 4 to 10 years.

How do I find the best bass guitar lessons near me?

To find the best bass guitar lessons for you, look at the list of teachers nearby on the Lessons website. You might also find guitar lessons at local music stores.

Before choosing a guitar teacher, remember to:

  • Compare prices from 3 different teachers and ask what their lessons cover.
  • Look at what people have said about them on Google and Lessons.
  • Request a list of other students they've taught to check their experience.
  • Ask other parents how their children feel about the teacher.
  • Ensure you have a written schedule and agreement before the first lesson.
  • Pay in small amounts at first to make sure the teacher is right for you before committing to a full month.

To ensure you choose the best guitar teacher, consider asking these questions:

  • What's your educational background in music?
  • How many years of experience do you have in teaching bass guitar?
  • Do you offer a complimentary initial lesson?
  • What are the typical ages of your students?
  • Which model of bass guitar is best for my practice?
  • Do you know where I can rent equipment?
  • Will you assign finger workout exercises as homework?
  • How frequently should I practice on my own?
  • Which textbooks do I need?
  • How many genres of guitar music can you teach?
  • Can you modify your teaching approach if I'm finding it hard to grasp?
  • What items should I bring to each lesson, and how long does it last?

Reviews for Poway bass guitar instructors

Recent success stories from people in the Poway area.
Trent R.
I've only had a couple of lessons, but he is responsive to my needs and is encouraging when I'm successful at new things. He suggests good exercises based on my skill level. As a new bassist, I have a lot of confidence he'll continue to challenge me. Much better than previous instructors I've had at the big box music stores in the past.

Josh is amazing! He is teaching my 4-year-old son how to play drums which is a challenge with such a young age… Josh is knowledgeable and has a lot of patience. With only 3 classes we’re seeing improvements in my boy and I can’t thank him enough! I will take my daughter soon to take piano lessons with him too and I am also planning to learning how to play the guitar!

Dennis is kind, patient, and an extremely talented musician. I never leave his studio without a new skill to practice and each lesson leaves you wanting another. No matter your level of music knowledge he has the gift to guide anyone in their journey of bettering their musicianship. I strongly recommend him!

David has taught all 3 of my children piano lessons from a very young age. Despite their initial reluctance to take lessons, he turned them around quickly and now they all love music and look forward to their lessons. He has a kind demeanor, and also teaches them “fun” songs (in addition to traditional ones) that keep them interested.
