Nim is a great bassist but also an excellent and patient teacher
whose lessons are very good value.
I came to him for help with improving my technique and made good progress in only
a few lessons. His teaching style is very positive and addresses your weaknesses by giving
you encouragement and increasing your confidence in what you can do.
Nim is a very patient and extremely motivating teacher.
As an absolute beginner on the bass I really needed a lot of positive reinforcement
and patience and I could not have hoped for more. Next to my song requests we easily fit
in scales, chords, slap technique and some more theory I was interested in,I had such a good time in my first lesson, that I asked for another one the same week!!
Had I not left London I would definitely still take lessons with Nim!
you will not find a more patient or accomplished teacher,I couldn't be
more happy for picking bass guitar and for picking Nim :)
i was Scared of having irreversible bad habits'
make sure you get the right teacher,
someone with a lot of experience'
i will definitely recommend lessons with Nim'
Check out what Dider has to say !!!

and how to use the scales to improvise
and create walking bass lines'
i found the right teacher'
Have you learned more since having
lessons with Nim? definitely
Nim is a nice person and a empathetic teacher. As such, he is very careful when starting a lesson to ensure he caters to each student's specific, needs, style, skill level and learning objectives. Nim is a very talented bass player, is humble in his approach and has a vast knowledge of music theory which provides solid foundations for learning the craft of bass playing. I would recommend Nim's classes to anyone looking to improve their bass playing!
In the short time I've studied bass with Nim I've noticed tremendous improvement in both my playing and understanding of music. He puts a lot of thought into his lessons and has developed a structured routine to help me improve. On top of that, his patient and encouraging teaching style, as well as his positive personality, make for a truly zen learning experience. He's also an amazing bass player!
I've been having lessons with Nim for over six months now. I find the lessons enjoyable and very productive. His passion for bass and music in general has really enabled me to move forward with my playing.
Although I have temporary suspended my bass playing to concentrate on piano, I thoroughly enjoyed my time with Nim - he is a good teacher, patient and careful, keen to help you learn to play the style you want to. I would also recommend to go and see him play live - this in itself inspired me a lot, not to mention it was a great evening's entertainment!
