Welcome to my profile! As a professional bassist and tutor, I offer in depth, personalised bass lessons across genres like Rock, Blues, Funk, R&B, and Jazz. Each lesson is comprehensive, featuring custom PDFs, audio files and videos to improve your practice. Tailored to fit your individual goals, my lessons ensure you develop in areas like fretboard navigation, technical proficiency, harmony, improvisation and rhythm skills.

Bridging Theory with Real World Experience

With years of professional experience in both live performances and studio sessions, coupled with formal studies in Jazz (Mmus) at the Guildhall and Popular Music (Bmus) at the Bass Institute in London, I have a blend of theoretical knowledge and practical expertise essential for advancing your bass playing.

My Musical Journey

My bass journey, starting from the local pubs and inspired by Jamerson and Jaco, has led me to perform across the globe from intimate venues to major festivals and studio recordings to TV and radio appearances. This journey has not only shaped my playing but also my teaching, bringing a wealth of experience to students.

David - “Marco is an AWESOME instructor!! He’s very knowledgeable, he makes the lessons simple to understand, and shows you how to apply the lesson/technique to your playing. I’ve had a few lessons with him now and I’ve been applying what I’ve learned from him. If you are looking for Bass Guitar Lessons, look no further Marco is the best!”

Indigo Pearce  - “Instead of searching aimlessly for YouTube lessons I actually have a plan to improve now thanks to Marco’s straight forward teaching. I’m also practicing more than ever before as harmony is no longer a scary topic, I’d highly recommend Marco!”

Mark Michaels  - Had 3 lessons with Marco and worth every penny. Started off with 30 minutes for the first lesson, but I continued for an hour. Time flies. Chilled out, knowledgeable teacher. Great sense of humor. Got homework assignments prepped specifically for me and my level – I can already read music so we worked on transitions and exercises. He even wrote out some grooves on the spot when he saw I had a couple of kinks to work out. Cheers Marco. See you again soon brother man!
