Riley is a great music teacher, and also just a really nice guy. Friendly and easy to get along with, he knows how to instruct and he knows his stuff, both technique and theory. He’s always happy to answer questions, and to work with you and your interests. As a beginning bass player, I’m sure I would not have progressed as quickly as I did without his lessons. Its always up to the individual player to put in the time, but working with Riley will give you the tools, direction, and fundamentals to get you playing bass well.
