Learn the Music You Love

Music is much more than just a profession to practice, an activity to pass the time or a development tool. Music is a universal language. It exceeds the capacity of verbal expressivity, offers refuge from the speed and superficiality of modern life, and unites us. As Nietzche once said, “Without music, life would be a mistake.”

Through music, you can express and experience emotions, entertain insights, and tell stories of fear and reverence, happiness and fulfillment – or just learn to play that Elton John song you’ve always dreamt about.

No matter your motivation for learning to play the piano, BassLine owner and instructor Mikael Jacobson is prepared to take you or your child’s playing to the next level.

Both of my sons took piano from Mikael but learned so much more! He is a phenomenal teacher. Not only did they learn to read music but they had the opportunity to collaborate and perform with others.

Mikael is an amazing musician who is reliable and professional. Both of my sons have different personalities and he adjusted his teaching to meet their needs.

I waited 44 years to learn to play the guitar I got when I turned 16. I scoured the Coachella Valley for someone worthy of my time, my energy, and my money. Someone with exceptional musical knowledge and skill. Someone extremely patient and approachable. And most of all, someone who respected MY musical goal, which is to play well enough to put a smile on the face of that 16 yr-old me.Based on my experience with Mikael, I’d say you can trust him with your musical dream. I did. And I’m smiling.

I have been taking lessons from Mikael for about seven years now. I have learned guitar, bass, keys, and ukulele. I have nothing but good things to say. The way he organizes his lessons and allows time for whatever you feel like you need to do in the lesson is great, and makes learning very fun and exciting.

Mikael makes learning acoustic guitar so much fun and challenging at the same time. The lessons are fit perfectly to my level, a total beginner, and my age, a super senior citizen 🙂 Mikael is patient, kind, supportive and flexible. Most important is the bi-annual recital/performance with all of Mikael’s students where we enjoy and share the local stage with our families, friends and community. I look forward to Mikael’s weekly classes both in person and virtual sessions, where there is no difference in quality. Thank you so much for being my music teacher. With respect and appreciation!
