Hi! My name is William, and I’ve been playing bass for about 8 years. I’m from Racine Wisconsin and currently live in Milwaukee. I come from a classical background in cello which helped me tremendously in playing bass by giving me an appreciation for reading music and developing tonal awareness of your fretboard. I have experience teaching dance, being a dancer at Milwaukee ballet, and I’d love to share my love of music and ideas I’ve learned from my home guitar/bass instructor Tony Roland with other willing bass students. I love jazz, fusion, funk, rock and metal. My preference at this point would be beginners or someone looking for somethin

  • 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?

Reviews for Wauwatosa bass guitar instructors

Recent success stories from people in the Wauwatosa area.
Robin Y.
Mr. Terrien teaches while playing along with his student in harmony or melody, not just echoing the student's part, which provides the student with the very real pleasure of 'jamming' as a real musician through the majority of the sessions. He interweaves high level music theory into lessons where the knowledge logically supports technique growth, making it feel less like a homework task and more like unlocking understanding. In the year my son has played and performed with Mr. Terrien, his interest in playing has deepened from, "this is kind of interesting" to "this is part of who I am and what I do", and that growth of passion is what parents hope for their child as they pursue a new skill.
