It has been said that the bass is the instrument which marries harmony with rhythm. If lyrics give a piece of music heart, the bass line gives it soul.
I specialize in teaching electric and upright bass to beginning and intermediate students of all ages in a relaxed and informal atmosphere. I customize the pace and content of our lessons so that each student is challenged enough to feel proud when he or she accomplishes a goal, but comfortable enough to have fun in the process.
I draw on my own professional musical experience—which runs the gamut from rock to classical to jazz—to guide my students in playing the kind of music they most enjoy. With your particular interests and comfort level in mind, I can help you learn to play along with your favorite songs, perform in a band at school or with friends, or lay a solid foundation for serious advanced study.
