Amanda T. says, "I have played the acoustic guitar for many years. Kendrick has challenged me to play new sounds, and I am currently expanding my guitar vocabulary. If you are looking to amp up your guitar (or piano/ keyboard) musical skills, Kendrick has a wealth of knowledge and skill. He is able to teach the theory of music well and plays with much soul and knowledge combined. Highly recommended." Read more

Eric I. says, "I had developed a degree of skill after years of hacking away on the guitar but lacked some fundamentals, understanding of theory, technique, and was in a playing rut. So, I did as others in that position do…… I bought another new guitar as inspiration! With this purchase however I entertained the thought of again taking a try at some lessons. I’ve tried taking lessons a few times before but was left unfulfilled by the experience. Nothing like taking a lesson to then watch the teacher put on an hour long concert in front of you, or finding someone too regimented in their approach and set on a on a single course of boredom for learning. You can save the Mel Bay book. The alternative route is YouTube or online courses. This too has its faults. There is a lot of content to sift through and it’s tough to effectively find what you are looking for. Plus the personal connection and critical feedback component is lost. It’s disappointing to spend time on an online program when valuable time is waisted searching to find relevant material. What I was hoping to find was a good learning partner. Someone receptive to tailoring the learning to blend with what the student wants, but equally as important, what the student needs to become better. That combo was important to me. It was important to break bad habits and be held accountable to improve fundamentally but also do so collaboratively. In search of such a unicorn I scrolled the local social media pages. After some research I contacted Marshall Biever. Marshall responded quickly and we engaged in a constructive dialogue to detail what I was looking for. Immediately I was set at ease with Marshall, aligning on goals, the direction to take and where best to begin. Marshall is a highly skilled professional musician but refreshingly one that is humble and reserved throughout the session. The coaching and direction is measured. Marshall’s talent and technical skill flashes timely throughout the session as only a compliment the lesson. From the onset Marshall was receptive to my suggestions. Although we follow a logical path to learning, it’s not discouraged to situationally pivot down some fun side roads. Our lessons pique curiosity to questions I may have. These can take us into discussions around recording techniques, effect setups, song writing, gear or various other topics. The experience has felt perfectly tailored. An approach that is guided but not restrictive. Perfect for any player at any level. For example, I’m challenged to add extra focus to areas I need help to break bad habits, but in other areas, where my skills are more mature, the approach shifts and is highly engaging. Subsequently the positive reinforcement coupled with the high expectations keeps me motivated. In conclusion, dedicating time to the sessions with Marshall has been one of the best things I’ve done. From this experience I’ve become more knowledgeable of the fundamentals and techniques as intended plus have stepped into topics and lessons I never thought of. There is rekindled inspiration and I find myself exploring new ideas and doing so more quickly, intentionally and with a higher degree of musical competence. Still a lot to learn and I’m excited that I found Marshall as a learning partner to help continue this journey." Read more

Karl R. says, "I have been taking guitar lessons with Ryan at Supertonic Guitar for about four months and I can say that my guitar playing and understanding has improved more than I thought possible. I took lessons many years ago and was frustrated that my instructor was teaching me stuff I didn't care to learn. They didn't have a real plan and they were showing me what they wanted to play, not what I wanted and as a result I lost interest. I really didn't know what to practice or even how to practice and as a result I stopped playing. Fast forward to over 20 years later and lessons at Supertonic Guitar. I have learned more about the guitar, how to play it, and music theory in the past four months than in all the previous years of lessons I've had. Ryan has taken the kind of music I enjoy and want to learn into his lesson plan for me and it makes it so much more fun to learn. It motivates me to play and I come out of just about every lesson with new knowledge and I am eager to apply it and practice it. In the past, I would play a couple times a week when I felt like it; now I look forward to picking up my guitar and practicing every day and as a result I get better and am closer to accomplishing my goals as a guitar player. The jam nights that Ryan organizes are awesome and so much fun. I learn a great deal by playing with other guitarists of different levels from beginner to very experienced. I highly recommend Ryan and Supertonic Guitar if you have any interest at all in learning guitar. He will help you to improve and learn in a way that will make it fun and challenging." Read more

My teaching approach: Dan Hagen was born in Chicago, Illinois. It was in the Motor City (Detroit, Michigan) where Dan began playing the guitar at age 9. First taught by his father, Dan instantly knew music was his calling and was soon practicing six to eight hours a day. At the age of 12, Dan moved with his family to San Clemente, California. By the age of 14, Dan was regularly playing the club circuit in Orange County with original Rock acts such as The Storm, always being mentored by such respected industry gurus as neighbor Gary Bourgeois (executive mix engineer for Sony movie studios).

  • Online lessons cost $35 to $55 per hour for remote learning at home.
  • Most monthly subscriptions for ongoing lessons range from $170 to $315.

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?

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.

What questions do I ask when choosing a bass guitar teacher?

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?
  • 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?

We've tried 3 other piano teachers, and none of them inspired our son to be a better player like Kendrick. His method is effective and expectations for each lesson are clear. He even went so far as to help us find a new teacher when we moved.

Both my sons take drum lessons from Lael. He was recommended to us by a local music teacher. They absolutely love it. They have learned so much and look forward to their lesson each week. Lael makes it fun and engaging. I can’t say enough good things about what he gives to the experience of learning. I would highly recommend him.

It is always a relief to find the things I want to do within a reasonable distance from my home, and one of the several locations for lessons with Mr Weinberg is only 15 minutes away. He is a wonderful musician and is very intuitive on which aspects I need more clear instruction on, and which come more easily for me. This may sound like an obvious part of teaching, but it is not a given with all music instructors. Having that extra attention has gotten me off to a very solid start with no time wasted during the lessons. I'm thankful to have found Mr Weinberg, he is a gem in the music world. Give him a try, I promise you will be pleased with the lessons, and with the outcome.

I've been a student for a few years now and my guitar playing has improved tremendously. Before lessons, I touched my guitar once in a blue moon. Now I get restless if I go a few days without playing. I have learned a lot about the fretboard and music theory, which has given me the confidence to not only learn more songs, but try things beyond what's written in the tabs, as well as learn songs by ear and try out improvising and soloing. It's clear that Ryan is passionate about teaching guitar, and I appreciate that he encourages me to step out of my comfort zone. I recommend taking lessons if you want to hold yourself accountable and gain a deeper understanding of guitar.

Shane is an excellent teacher. I have taken guitar off and on since I was a teenager. I must say he is one of the best teachers I have had. He is extremely knowledgeable about the guitar and music in general and he shares that knowledge with his students. I appreciate that he is very professional and works patiently with me. I highly recommend him for any age person that has a desire to learn how to play the guitar!
