Reviews for Bass Lessons with John Patitucci

  • "I have been wanting to study with Patitucci for a long time and have all of his materials. I think this is a no-brainer if you're serious about your playing. I'm feeling the results."Robin Ruscio
  • "I am finding the beginner bass lessons extremely helpful right from the start. Something I really appreciate is that I can use the site and watch the videos from my iPad/iPhone as well as from my laptop. That makes it about 10 thousand times more useful for me than something limited to a laptop or desktop or TV set (such as DVD type lessons)."Mekanamom
  • "The Video Exchanges are so helpful. Thanks to everyone who has submitted something. Combined with John's lessons and individual responses, this is such a great and challenging learning experience."Trey
  • "I really like John's enthusiasm, his talent, his caring attitude, and his musical brilliance. I think it's probably helpful to people that he refers to the basic theory underlying the music as well."Deirdre
  • "It's a very complete video curriculum that keeps growing with new Video Exchanges. I'm not about to run out of practice material, that's for sure. 3 important things you get from John's online school: What to practice, How to practice, Motivation and drive to keep at it."FSSimon
