The New School - Music Performance (Double Bass) - Sept 2008 - June 2011
Jazz, Bluegrass, Rock, Avant-Garde, Country, Blues, Classical
With a strong foundation in music theory, technique and history, students of mine learn the music and styles they love with a knowledge and authenticity that only professionals have. I teach technique, music theory, history, songs, ear training, and depending on what level of student, lessons in being a true professional. We will work on scales, chords, modes, alterations, dynamics and reading music and find out the reason why these things are important.
I am a professional Upright & Electric Bass Player, Guitar Player and Singer who has worked with numerous artists including Adrian Belew, Jon Anderson, John Zorn, Candido Camero, Ronnie Spector, John Wetton, Anthony Braxton, William Parker, Jeff "Skunk" Baxter, and countless others. I taught for 4 years at the School of rock teaching private lessons and directing ensembles, and attended to school at the New School University for Jazz and Contemporary Music. I currently perform 20-30 times
a month and am found playing nearly every style of music in over with over 100 artists/bands as a freelance musician.
