Each lesson is done in 30 minute or 60 hour sessions, and can be done at a location of your convenience, or in my studio.
For new students, an initial meeting is required to determine their current level of playing ability, and which style of teaching will work most effectively for them.
If students do not already own a bass guitar, I can provide one for them to play on during our lessons.
