The uptight bass is my main instrument. I was lucky to study with maestro Michael Klinghoffer, and my teaching goes by his book "drive a double bass". In addition, for those who are interested in jazz, I teach different aspects of the jazz bass. In my career I have collaborated with top jazz musicians, and I'm happy to share what I know.
Upright Bass and Electric Bass lessons for all ages and levels.
Study the music of Ron Carter, Ray Brown, Oscar Stagnaro and James Jamerson.
Development of technique is critical on the Upright Bass. Understanding of the fingerboard and its positions will be a primary concern, so that the music at hand will be able to flow unhindered!
Studies in Jazz, Classical, Blues can be undertaken, as well as the art of improvising bass lines and solos.
I'm a professional jazz bassist, also adept in many other styles, although the bow is not my expertise. Frequent topics include right hand jazz technique, left hand technique, posture, thumb position technique, time/pulse, bass line concepts and improvisation.
First I will ask you some basic questions. Then I will immediately begin sharing information / training you. The fastest road to your success is my goal.
