About the lessons:
The lessons are 60 minutes long unless requested different. During the initial
lesson, I assess the level of the student so that I can design a plan of study
that best suits his/her needs. I do not believe in the ''cookie cutter'' way of
teaching. Some of the topics we cover during the lessons are: basic rhythms,
clappling ,simple bass lines , technique, , songs, reading music and writing
music, improvising, how to practice, hoe to feel the bass , what to practice,
preaparation and playing different musical styles ranging from classical to
jazz to rock & roll and everything in between.
Every month, I will give my student a new practice log sheet so that we can
keep track of what we learn
