Bass (electric or upright) & theory lessons!
Many musicians are self-taught, and that's fine if you have the discipline, focus and a LOT of time. Taking lessons from a good teacher puts you on the fast track. (A "good teacher" is one who not only knows their craft, but one who can communicate what they know - perhaps the most important component.) Having a guide to lead you through the various aspects of music and give you a logical, organized learning path cuts the learning time dramatically. You attain your goals faster and that means you get more satisfaction, sooner.
I have a long list of credentials in both performance and pedagogy. My students have gone on to Berklee College of Music and other colleges as music majors. Some have become professional musicians and some were adults who gave it up for a time but wanted to get back to playing. They are all better players and far more knowledgeable about music than they were before we met.
They've learned not only where to put their fingers, but (more importantly) why. They've learned how music works. While I teach all levels, I particularly love to teach beginners (teens and adults) and those just beyond that level. That's the time to lay down a strong foundation, and that's the time to avoid bad habits that will hold you back later on.
If you want to open that window of knowledge, I can help. Try a lesson and see if it works for you. One or two lessons are enough to see the possibilities.
