The main focus is on technique (bowing, fingerings) while covering any classical repertoire. Can also cover jazz, rock/pop if the student wishes.

About Nathan

I have been teaching private lessons for close to 10 years and have been an active performer for even longer, playing in all different types of groups, from rock bands and jazz groups to orchestras and brass bands. I studied music at Frostburg State University (Bachelors) and the Peabody Conservatory (Masters). I can teach just about any age and skill level and cover anything you are interested in learning; whether its a certain style, genre, technique or song.

My lessons are laid back, with a focus on perfecting the basics. Most students work out of a method book appropriate to their skill level. Aside from that we'll also spend time learning songs and pieces of the students choice. With the right amount of effort, you'll know your way around your ...

Great Teacher

Nathan is a great teacher. I had always wanted to learn the bass guitar and had zero experience. He has a great feeling for music and teaches it very well. I really have enjoyed my lessons.

Shannon F. Gambrills, MD

I studied with some of the most renowned classical bassists in the world, so I have a sound foundation in bass technique and releasing tension. The upright bass looks big and formidable, but it doesn't have to be! Learning to play it is really fun and very rewarding if you have someone who can guide you.

About Shannon

Hello! I'm Shannon, and I would love to teach you about music! I have an extensive musical background in both performance and education. I attended George Mason University and the world renowned College of Music at the University of North Texas. I am also an award winning bassist and singer, having performed at such venues as the Kennedy Center, Blues Alley, Rams Head Tavern, and more. I specialize in teaching contemporary styles (pop, rock, jazz, musical theater, etc.). I have taught many successful young vocalists and instrumentalists and believe in a positive, fun, confidence building approach. My students learn music theory, warm ups, and technique in conjunction with songs so they can apply musical concepts in a practical way.

(I apologize for posting this in the review section but I cant find any other way to contact you)
