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 ...
As a professional upright bass player for the past five or so years, I can help you with any thing from the basics to what to know on a professional gig. I can teach classical technique, Jazz soloing/walking, how to get good sound/intonation, and give professional help for those trying to bridge the gap into the gigging realm.
In my years of teaching and being taught I have realized that the best teachers are those who really focus on the needs of the student and help them realize their passion for playing music. This usually involves a lesson plan which combines both technical aspects and working on songs, so that the student is both working and having fun at the same time!

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 ...
I address the fundamentals of upright bass playing through method books and etudes (Simandl, Billé, Kreutzer, Storch-Hrabe..). I tailor each lesson depending on an individual student's level and needs, always making sure they feel encouraged and supported. Even for students that just want to learn jazz, I still make sure to place some emphasis on classical studies with the bow so as to further deepen their understanding of the upright bass. For jazz students, there are lots of listening assignments in addition to the technique and theory of constructing walking bass lines that's covered in lessons.
Hi! My name is Phil. Thank you for stopping by!
I spent a large chunk of my childhood in São Paulo, Brazil but am originally from Richmond, VA. I've lived in the city since finishing up my undergrad studies in 2004 and have since performed in all kinds of settings (jazz duets through big bands, bluegrass bands, folk-rock, chamber orchestras and full symphony orchestras). I love the rich and vibrant music scene that NYC has to offer and I see every day a chance to learn something new.
I have experience teaching beginner guitar and beginner piano lessons in one-on-one music school settings at the Rye Arts Center in Rye, NY, which I left so that I could pursue my masters degree in classical double bass performance (SUNY Stony Brook, ’12… I also have a B.A. ...
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. Here he became Musical Director and was responsible for 36 musicians on board, as well as the product delivered to guests.
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. ...
