Being that I have background knowledge in theory and formal music training, I appreciate that he's taking his time to help me apply my knowledge to this new instrument I'm learning. I'm really motivated after every lesson to practice on my bass guitar every chance I get to while utilizing the resources he sends me to help reach my personal goals. Very patient and, overall, a great teacher!

Cole was very helpful and catered the lesson to fit my needs as a beginner. He used great online tools to support the lesson that made it easier for me to read music in multiple formats. He also emailed me “homework” to practice on my own!
