I’ve been playing bass for almost 40 years. I have a performance degree from Berklee. Most weekend nights I play at Hyde Park in Indy. I can teach all styles depending on what you’re interested in, and I focus on technique, reading, learning songs, and learning to improvise. My goal is for you to have the ability to play bass as a hobby or do paying gigs, whichever you choose.

I'm always thrilled to meet to guitar students! My primary speciality is classical guitar. It's a wonder to explore new and old methods. We will look at new ideas in guitar technique as well as dig through centuries-old tomes of ancient guitar wisdom to conjure up a forgotten melody ;) I also play and teach many other techniques: jazz, blues, folk, rock, prog-rock, metal, and Renaissance lute! (I perform as part of the ren-faire duo, The Lute and the Lady). Niche genres like Celtic, Spanish, Mariachi, Bossa Nova are also welcome -- even if it's new to me (shoegaze?), I can help you explore your musical passion. If you want to learn to sin

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:

  • Focus on rhythm to set a solid foundation for other instruments in a band
  • 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?

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?

  • 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?
  • Can I have a written copy of our schedule, contract, and payment details?
  • What is your policy if I have to cancel a lesson suddenly?
  • Can I incorporate my favorite songs into the learning process?

Cynthia M.
John is extremely professional. We have a 13-year-old with mild special needs, and John has been patient with him, encouraging him but allowing him to move at his own pace. We've seen tremendous growth in our son over the past year, and cannot recommend John highly enough. His talent and passion for teaching music is evident in everything he does, and we have been very pleased with our overall experience.
