My name is Joel Christopher Viera and I am offering beginner music lessons to children and young musicians! I am a college student earning my Bachelor's Degree in Music, and I have over 13 years of experience playing music. I am classically trained in upright bass, and I have played in predominantly jazz settings. However, I've been exposed to a vast range of music of which I have the knowledge to share, especially rock music.
I grew up playing rock guitar studying Led Zeppelin, Green Day, Pink Floyd, The Rolling Stones and much more with my father. My forte, however, is in playing bass. I can teach anything bass related ranging from funk techniques like Flea from the Red Hot Chili Peppers to jazz soloing like Jaco Pastorius, including advanced music theory. I have been giving private lessons to students for over a year now, and they have indeed learned music. I run a very nonchalant, stress-free environment. I'm available to commute to your home (anywhere in New York City) or you can come to my house (Riverdale) as well. Prices are $40/hr if the student comes to me, or $60/hr if I go to your home. I can also offer just general help with music theory :)
Below I have listed my Instagram page and website so you can learn more about me!
You can contact me via phone or email (please leave a voicemail regarding lesson inquiry if you call), so we can discuss a lesson plan and availability. Looking forward to learning!
