    How important is a music education and enjoy playing the bass during a performance? Have you also considered the value of that education and the return on investment that it will bring you in the long run? Many bass players today haven’t done the proper research into the “real-world” importance of being prepared in advance for the performance stage of playing their bass guitars. Bass strings and their characteristics play an important role as you can see but is there more involved? Hmmm, let’s see.

    Well, I have developed an easy to understand training and coaching program that anybody could get. All of the material is organised into regular weekly modules that will integrate what you are learning about the bass guitar at your own pace. This is an educational, reprogramming and mentoring course that incorporates accelerated learning technologies and rapid integration exercises. You can enjoy this training from the comfort of your own home via Skype or in-person with me one-on-one. You might be asking yourself, “Why should I choose you as a teacher?” The fact is that I may not be the right teacher for you. You have to decide that for yourself, but with over three decades of experience, what I can tell you are the types of people who are attracted to my teaching methods. People interested in my style of teaching are after a few key elements:

    They want to be challenged at a core level and develop a strong foundation in music.They want to be able to change their bad habits and replace them with positive behaviour that yields real-world results.They want to create value for themselves as bass players who can really play their instruments so they can get a return on their investment in a professional context.

    If you don’t want any of these things, then please do not choose me as your teacher because you will be disappointed. However, if you relate to this style of teaching and really want to change your bass playing for the better, then I may just be the right guy for you.

    The program you will learn with me is a proven system. If you do not address these immutable musical principles – that all the best players in the world know about – you will end up getting stuck over and over again no matter how many times you try. Many of us think we know what we should be learning, but in reality we often end up making the same mistakes due to lack of direction, motivation and most importantly lack of mentoring. This happens in other areas of life as well. We all know we should exercise and eat the right foods, but laziness and temptation gets the better of us and we end up fat and out of shape. Relationships also have the propensity of following similar dysfunctional patterns; we all think we know the right way to do something, but often loose perspective and interest due to a lack of qualified guidance. It’s like baking a cake- if you don’t put in the right ingredients, in the right order, you’ll repeatedly end up with a lopsided cake. Please remember that there are always a hundred different ways to do something- a right way, a wrong way and ninety eight other ways in between; I’m only interested in teaching you the right way!
