David M. says, "I can't give Junichi enough praise! I would add value and punctuality if they let me. Junichi is the teacher you are looking for! He is patient but he pushes me to be the best bass player I can be. In the last few months I've seen marked improvement in all areas of musicianship in reading ability, ear training and physical dexterity on the bass. Junichi is always prepared for class and communicates well during the class. Definitely check him out! You'll love it!" Read more

Don’t let the brevity of his quote and text messages fool you! This man has a wealth of knowledge and experience and is all too happy to share it with you. He’s disarming pleasant and effective in his approach. Just the nicest guy. I only wish I had found him earlier. " Read more

I teach guitar, electric bass, upright bass, clarinet and piano. At the core of my teaching and every instrument are two aspects of music: understanding the physical obstacles of an instrument and navigating the theory applied to the given instrument. I help guide students through these concepts with patience and personalized lesson plans influenced by a collection of syllabuses combined with the student's interests. I have Bachelors of Music degree from Rowan University and have been on the instructor's side of the lesson room for 8 years now. After having crafted and reworked my approach, I know that I learn from each of my students just as...

Alex G. says, "Hi, My name is Alex! I used to be a student of Matthew’s before he signed on for this site. As one of Matthew’s old students, I can truly say that Matt is a down to earth and very patient guy. He’s very pleased and thrilled to help others learn and was so with me. He taught me how a bass works, how to play, how to stay in rhythm, how to play with others, minor music theory, and he also taught me to have fun with it! And so on from there. Now playing for about three years, I am a lot more comfortable and more skilled to play with others thanks to Matt! I truly recommend him as a good, viable, determined, and dedicated instructor of both bass and music! :) " 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?

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?
