Learn on your own time via Skype, Zoom, or FaceTime when you choose to build upon your musical interests with BassLine Music.

Secure and Structured · What to Expect

At BassLine Music, the health and safety of our students are our priority. However, we know, for some, online music lessons aren’t ideal. That’s why strive to make the transition from in-person learning to virtual as seamless and stress-free as possible.

Our new online music program furthers you or your child’s musical lessons in a way that puts your well-being first through social distancing. While online lessons sacrifice some advantages of face-to-face learning, we will never compromise on consistency and care. When you register for remote music lessons, you receive weekly online instruction conducted by an expert instructor in a safe virtual lesson room.

We give you the ability to choose the platform you’re most comfortable with: Skype, FaceTime, and Zoom. Every week we will send you a link to a secure meeting room and conduct a fun-filled music lesson.

Why Choose BassLine?
We are proud to have an exceptional roster of students who return to our lessons year after year. With enthusiasm, encouragement, and a necessary amount of structure, we tailor our lessons to each student’s unique obstacles and advantages.

Through a personable approach, we are confident we can keep your spark for music alive even online.

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!
