I start by getting to know you, your background, and your goals. I design lesson plans just for you and give you a link to my digital library as well as a personalized Lesson Journal where I keep notes for you on all your lessons. We work on the stuff YOU want to do including warm-up routines, practice routines, sight reading, playing charts, jamming, soloing, understanding theory, building chords, rhythm, tapping, rock, blues, jazz, funk, swing, scales, arpeggios, learning the fretboard, the role of your instrument, slash chords, diatonic function, modes, intervals, voicing, chord substitution…well, I could go on, but I think you get the picture.
I have a Bachelors of Music in Composition and Bass Performance from Berklee College of Music in Boston. I have played bass and guitar for 20 years, playing bass professionally by recording, performing, and touring in groups including rock, big band, and orchestral.
I do have a standard pricing system that ranges from $25-50/lesson depending on lesson location (my studio or online), duration (30, 45, or 60 minutes), and quantity (price breaks given for a 4-lesson package). Please contact me or go to stepbystepmusic.com and click on Lessons for details.
I have worked with players of ALL ages, levels, abilities, and backgrounds. I’ve taught kids, senior citizens, young professionals, families, and veterans. Many of my students are brand new to playing, while others have been performing for some time. Some clients have reached their goals in a few lessons, and others have enjoyed staying with me for many months or years. Whether you want to start out, improve where you are at, or just enjoy the learning process, my only goal is to meet your needs with your musical education.
