Yes! His name is Mirco Melone and he is an amazing bass teacher for students ranging from 8 to 80 years old. He has been teaching for 15 years and can help from beginners to experts. His love for music is infectious and your child will adore him. 

You can text him at 510-388-0075 or write to mircomelonemusic [at] He also has a website at

Highly recommended, for both virtual and in-person lessons! 

My daughter has been learning electric bass with an awesome teacher, Vicky Grossi. She's been great at building a connection with a shy, reluctant kid. She teaches out of her home in Temescal or via Zoom. She also has a thriving practice with kids who sometimes perform together. FiveTen-708-4197 is her mobile phone.

I can recommend Eric Lenchner, who teaches as "Professor Sludge." He taught my two kids and many others that we know, as well as adults we know. His specialties are electric guitar and bass, but he also teaches acoustic guitar, ukulele, drums, piano and trumpet.  He is in Oakland but only teaching via zoom now, not in-person. His contact info is eric [at] or 415-239-5390, or
