Even as the pandemic rages on, the joy of music doesn’t have to come to a halt. During the age of online learning, BassLine Music is adaptable and committed to the musical aspirations of every child and adult in Palm Springs. Owner and teacher Mikael Jacobson has expanded into the internet realm and is available to teach piano, guitar, drums, bass, and more online.

Master Your Instrument Virtually

BassLine Music welcomes students of all ages and ability levels. Whether you’re stuck on the second line of Hot Cross Buns or preparing to beat Bach at his own game, we are ready to take your piano, guitar, ukulele, bass, or banjo proficiency to the next level.

At BassLine Music, we know that playing an instrument is much more than just a hobby. Music gives life meaning. It helps us express the inexpressible and is an enduring universal language of emotion, insights, and enthusiasm. I think you’ll agree with us that it is no stretch to say that in these challenging times, we need music more than ever.

Even if a few months off has thrown a spanner in your progress, we want you to know it is never too late to begin or resurrect your practice. We support all musical interests and genres for every adult or child, whether you’re an aspiring classical pianist or amateur DJ.

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 journey 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.

Mikael is a very special music teacher. He will tailor students’ interests and motivate them to embrace music. My husband and I enjoy his students’ recitals very much. My children get to play the music they loved and Mikael also lets them be in part of other students’ performances. Love the different combinations of music all performed in the recitals. YOU ROCK, Mikael!

Guitar, Bass, Keys, Ukulele

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.
