Overview:

I have been playing the bass since 1986 and teaching since 1997. My focus was classical and jazz upright studies and electric basses. Ages of my past students have ranged from child to adult. I have performed on 4 continents with bands, orchestras, singers, artists, and entertainers from all over the globe.

EXPERIENCE

My main focus is helping the student improve while enjoying the process. A musician is more likely to stick with it if it's fun. If it's classical on doublebass the book of choice is Simandl or something that teaches fingerings. Maybe the bassist wants to play jazz. That involves learning scales and patterns.Listening to the types of music you are interested in can be very helpful and fun and I like to encourage that.

METHODS USED

Mel Bay's first 2 bass books were my first but there are many to choose from. Starting slow is imperative for the beginner. This prevents injury because bass is a physically demanding instrument at times. I teach warm ups, breathing, posture, hand and arm positions, stretches, and cool downs. Practicing with a metronome must be a daily routine for the evolving bassist because they are the beat no matter what style.

LESSON STYLE

An instructor once asked me what could I do in music today. That is my question to every student. Maybe it's a new scale, riff/lick/, chord, or variation of something already learned. By the end of the lesson our goal will be to have learned one more thing that we didn't know the day before and have fun doing it.

Select all the days/times the student would be available to start lessons. Selecting "3pm - 7pm" means the student can start as early as 3pm or start as late as 7pm. It is important that you select as many days and the widest window of start times for each day as possible. That will help us make a match with one of our teachers.

Ok

Are you sure that's your only availability? The more availability you easier it will be to arrange a teacher for you.
