What our students are saying...
"Having tried and failed to motivate myself with online lessons in the past I had begun to imagine that only time spent face to face with a tutor could work for me. I'm delighted to say that Zoltan's lessons have dispelled this idea completely. The work is a mixture of musical exercises, and longer more in depth sessions. The explanations are always concise and clear, and Zoltan is at great pains to ensure his students don't rush ahead too quickly without fully absorbing each stage of the lesson. As a consequence I felt there was no race to get to end, to learn something with which I could show off. Instead the courses have helped every aspect of my playing, from understanding just what musical effect intervals have on a piece to gaining a better understanding of the entire fretboard. Previously I had areas where I was reasonably strong, areas where I was sketchy and whole swathes of the fretboard like a map from the middle ages, just an empty space with a sign saying 'Here be Dragons'.
This is Zoltan's strength as a teacher. The things I have learned are not simply specific to one piece of music but rather enrich my knowledge of the bass as a whole. Everything I've learned has applications elsewhere, and is making me a better player. Don't come to Zoltan if you want someone to show off a dazzling technique while you look on insecure and belittled. Come to Zoltan for the best kind of learning; step by step, careful assimilation of knowledge."
