Music and bass have given me so much joy and a sense of purpose, I have 30 + years of experience playing in original and cover bands that covers most genres and I want to give back to the community of low end loving players ranging from beginners to intermediate! There is something so satisfying to work with someone and watch the light bulbs go off and to see them grow in ways they never thought possible!

David says, "Awesome instructor who knows his stuff It was clear from my very first meeting with Eric that he had a real passion for music and a mastery of the art of guitar. His lessons are fun, he's been quite dependable, personable, and knowledgeable, and I can't wait to learn more! He has a laid back attitude which really helps his teaching. More often than once he's gone over into his own time to make sure I get a lot out of each lesson." Read more

  • Request a list of other students they've taught to check their experience.

Reviews for Minneapolis bass guitar instructors

Recent success stories from people in the Minneapolis area.
Joel C.
Anibal is extremely well-organized & thinks thru his “lesson plan” depending on what we’ve worked on the past few weeks. So, ultimately, the lessons & learning builds upon a foundation & that can be in a music style or genre or whatever the student wants to focus upon. Anibal is an incredible musician & has a plethora of tools to help the student. I continue to refer to a few short videos that he provided, to hear how a passage or scale or lick is properly played. He is very encouraging & patient with me as a student, yet also tried to push to raise-the-bar on my ability. I would highly recommend Anibal as a music instructor or musician for hire. He’s a really nice person as well!

Eric is a wonderful guitar teacher. He has been my son's guitar teacher for 2-years. I admire the honesty and patience that he has with my son, in addition to keeping lessons fun. I admire how he stresses the basics, yet encourages my son to practice familiar songs to keep it fun for him. My favorite part is when I hear Eric and my son do a "jam" session. Not sure if that is the right word, but it sounds so cool when they play together. I highly recommend Eric as a guitar teacher.
