EXPERIENCE

My experience as a teacher dates back to when I was about 15. I began working my fellow students in high school to help further their musicality in regions that they were not as comfortable with. Since then I have been teaching people how to find their own voice in music, as I feel that's the most important thing! As a teacher, I want to emphasize how much more there is to music than notes or technique. Whenever someone describes what music is, they will use words like passion, expression, life, love, or things of that nature. NEVER will someone say music is scales, theory, or sitting alone in your room practicing. I aim to combine the theory and basic knowledge of music with the purity of expression that comes whenever you're on stage. With this style of learning, you'll never want to put your instrument down!

METHODS USED

Most of my curriculum will be based around what you'd like to do. For example, if you'd like to get into the start of great electric bass playing, we can cover Larry Graham, James Jamerson, Chuck Rainey, and all the intricacies of the lines that they made. And if you'd like to learn how to keep up with 16th note double bass at 280bpm or higher, I can show you that too! I'm really just focused on turning you into the bass player that you want to be, and will guide you in the direction you want to go while still keeping things interesting.

LESSON STYLE

My teaching style is relatively simple. You tell me what you'd like to accomplish as a musician, and I will provide music, techniques, exercises, and theory to help you achieve what you want to achieve. I am also well acquainted with the so called 'practice block'. I have had the problem of disenchantment from the instrument MANY times, and have taught myself not how to push through it, but to find simple ways to get excited about music again. I will not be drilling techniques and theory into your head, but rather will show you how they relate to your favorite music, and why learning them can be so exciting!
