Joe N. says, "I was a self-taught guitarist with moderate skills looking to take my skills to the next level. Being able to write, play, and understand the why behind a guitar solo was one of my goals. I have completely met and surpassed all expectations with my guitar lessons with the Wolfman. He has the teaching experience to give me the tools and knowledge to elevate my guitar playing, and overall musicianship to a level that makes me feel confident playing rock, blues, and jazz. Whether you are a beginner or an intermediate guitarist, Wolfman has a program to get you to where you want to be and then some. Week in and week out I was given new tools, theory, and overall experience to bring to my own music and create new and more complex music than anything I have ever written before." Read more

  • 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?

  • 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.

  • Do you offer a complimentary initial lesson?
  • What are the typical ages of your students?

Reviews for Salem bass guitar instructors

Recent success stories from people in the Salem area.
Ian D.
I first took lessons with Bob Wolfman back in 1994, after spotting a flyer near my school. I called him on a whim, seeking someone who could adeptly teach both technique and theory, especially in blues and jazz guitar. Bob was a revelation—his fingers and brain worked at lightning speed, and I always left each lesson feeling enriched with new knowledge. After graduating, I stopped taking lessons, but the pandemic prompted me to reconnect with Bob for online lessons. Decades later, I am thrilled to find that Bob's charm, personality, and talent for guitar instruction haven't changed a bit. For anyone aspiring to become an accomplished, well-rounded guitar player, I wholeheartedly recommend Bob. His expertise spans over the years and adapts with time, making him an excellent choice for both beginners and seasoned players. You definitely won't regret it!

Karen Sarkisian was an excellent pedal steel guitar teacher for our teenage son. She provided terrific, high-quality instruction, offered a nice balance between challenging and supporting him, and also jammed together, making the lessons a lot of fun too! We were fortunate to find Karen, a highly sought steel player for local gigs, as it was not easy to find someone who not only plays but also teaches this instrument. We highly recommend Karen!

Ed O'Brien is a terrific teacher! I've been taking lessons from him for a few months on the ukulele and would recommend him to anyone who want to learn a new instrument or improve on an old one. Highly qualified and very patient. Give him a call--you won't regret it!
