John G. was born in 1987 in Phoenix, Arizona. He started playing music when he was seven years old, learning classical guitar, and taking up bass not soon after. John used all the knowledge he gained at a young age to become one of Phoenix's best young musicians. He was in demand for all kinds of gigs: from playing jazz in restaurants and coffee shops, to playing in pits for musicals, to gigs with rock bands and playing in churches. John also began to compose, being influenced by Duke Ellington and Igor Stravinsky, including songs for jazz band and electronic music.
John moved to New York City to attend Manhattan School of Music, where he studied with Jeremy Manasia, Garry Dial, and Jay Anderson. John learned much about composition from Richard Sussman, and refined his ...

Thanks so much for taking the time to inquire about studying music with me.
Music and studying music has always been a passionate experience for me. I have been so blessed with the teachers and fellow musicians in my life.

I hope that all of your life you will have a rewarding relationship to music and the spirit of great sounds!

In 10 years of teaching the bass, I've guided students from their first encounter with the instrument through professional performance and college study. I love teaching the bass because playing the bass ties together so many fundamental elements of music in every genre.
I have a degree in Jazz Performance on the double bass from NYU and have performed professionally in many styles from jazz to classical, rock, soul, funk, merengue, and everything in between. Studying the bass with me can be as focused or as broad as needed for each student. I enjoy all of my lessons, learning each and every baseline on Sgt Pepper's, focusing on reading skills and music theory, or improvising walking bass lines over jazz standards. I always focus on the goals of my students and how best to build a true understanding of the instrument, it's role in an ensemble, and the tradition of the music.
Cited by All About Jazz as a musician with "all the groovy elasticity necessary to encompass the melodic complexity of compositions," Isaac is a strong voice among a new generation of musicians. Discovering a love for the piano, guitar, and bass in his youth, Isaac began performing in coffee shops and jazz clubs at the age of 15, quickly becoming one of the most sought-after young musicians in Westchester County. While still in high school, Isaac had the opportunity to study with jazz legend John Patitucci. Isaac's selection for New York's prestigious All-State Festival came as no surprise.
Isaac graduated from New York University's undergraduate jazz program in 2009, where he studied with many seminal jazz musicians including Ari Hoenig, George Garzone, Kenny ...

In my lessons I take a step by step approach on learn how to move and how to understand the instrument at hand. I require all of my students to learn how to read sheet music and how to translate onto their instrument. I'm a laid back teacher and will teach what is most appealing to the student but in an academic style. I teach the student not just to play but to understand what it is he or she is playing. I will cater to any level of playing and help give a path to ...
I received a bachelor's degree in Jazz on the double bass, studying with the incredible Robert Hurst. I can teach you how to develop a great sound and help you become the upright bass player you want to be, whether that's jazz or any other style! I include the bow extensively in my training, but that's by no means 100% essential.
Originally from the Detroit, MI area, Chris has been performing bass professionally since 2004. After earning a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Jazz Studies from the University of Michigan, he went on to perform in orchestras on cruise ships.

Chris loves teaching all ages and levels. Whatever your needs may be, he caters to them, and, most importantly, listens to what YOU the student wants from lessons. There is no "cookie-cutter" method to teaching or learning, and you will find Chris's methods both refreshing and effective.
Chris specializes in electric bass (fretted or fretless) and upright bass, with some experience on acoustic guitar and arranging. ...
I started playing upright bass when I was 16 years old, and it's now become my job, my hobby, and my passion. I've been teaching for 7 years, and I've found that it's very important that a student is playing with correct technique, and that's why lessons are so crucial with this instrument. Some teachers think that this means lessons must be boring and tedious, but I think that we can have fun, engaging lessons that still teach the important things.
Some topics I can teach include:
Specific styles of music or specific songs
Walking bass lines
Creating your own bass lines
(For classical students, I like to use both the Simandl and Bille methods).
I've been teaching private music lessons since 2007. Many of my students have gone on to study music in college, and almost all have taken part in fulfilling music projects.
I've been studying music my whole life. I have a Master of Music Degree in Jazz Arts from Manhattan School of Music (2013), and a Bachelor of Music Degree in Jazz Studies from William Paterson University (2010). But I know more than just jazz music, I'm comfortable playing and teaching essentially all styles of music. I play hundreds of gig every year on both electric bass and double bass, spanning a wide variety of musical styles. I'm also very well versed in music theory, ear training, reading, and composing.
With my teaching methods, the music that speaks to you becomes our vehicle ...
