EUREKA--I've discovered gold. I noticed an old bass guitar that had been sitting in my cellar since Christmas 1982 that was untouched and I decided one day out of the blue that I wanted to learn to play. I bought a "Bass Guitar for Dummies" book and brother I must have been a dummy, because it's nearly impossible to learn an instrument from a 300 page book. I decided that the only way to learn was not with a book or some guy on a YouTube video demo, but to study with a teacher. I heard about some other studios, but they just didn't seem to have a program that interested or challenged me...I wanted to seriously learn to play, I mean really learn the instrument and not just get thrown up on a stage playing mediocre music. I actually physically made just one call to one studio..Jim Clark..just to inquire about lessons and his passion over the phone convinced me that he would be the "chosen one" and I called back the next day to sign up. Waiting for my first lesson was like waiting for Christmas to arrive and it seems like every week since then I get a new present in the form of his wisdom and individual style of teaching. My ambivalence in writing this review is that I feel as though I discovered a gold mine right in my own backyard and selfishly want to keep this hidden gem to myself. At the same time, I want to stand out in the middle of Main Street and like one of the California miners scream that I found gold and open the flood gates for everyone else to rush in. In less than 6 months time I went from knowing absolutely nothing to learning a few songs and eventually now playing Sir Duke by Stevie Wonder and preparing for a blues jam session. Sure, it's great that I can play a couple of songs, and I'm sure I would have learned a couple of songs somewhere else also, but one of the differences is the quality of my playing. The other, equally as important, is that I also am learning not only the theory behind the bass but the rhythm of music--to quote Mr. Stevie Wonder "Just because a record has a groove, Don't make it in the groove". I'm not learning how to play A single song, but I'm learning how to break down a song so that I can learn to play any song on my own just by listening to it and knowing the theory behind it. So, please go somewhere else if you're interested in "fools gold" but if you're seriously interested in learning an instrument--the guitar, the drums, the piano, or the bass--then check out this gold mine, Jim Clark, and soon you will be jamming with us.
