    My instructor just moved back to that area - he is in Haverhill. Really laid back, Berklee grad from 30 something years ago. I really like his teaching style. I learned more about theory from him in 2 months than I did in 2 semesters of college. PM me and I'll give you his contact info.

    don't you need to already know alot about bass playing before you go there? I'm self taught so I'm sure there is a minimum knowledge requirement before heading to berklee.

    He's not suggesting that you go to Berklee. He's saying that there are lots of very good teachers in the area b/c of Berklee. Go over there and either see if one of the teachers will agree to give you lessons or check out the message boards and see if one of the advanced students is teaching on the side.

    There's a Berklee forum on here (just scroll down). You can ask the profs there and they may have some suggestions for you.

    you don't mention what style of music you are into? If you are into the blues, 60s soul / r&b or even loud/heavy blues-rock, you might want to track down Brad Hallen. (resume a mile long AND a good teacher)
