I have been performing on Upright Bass for more than three decades in both the classical and jazz realms. I have both a classical and jazz performance degree.

The foundation of my teaching is the Smandl method. I also have a large library of classical and jazz books as well as tunes I have transcribed or lesson material I have written myself.

Let me help you get started on bass or refine your skills.

Shawn is very well informed on music theory. I have had discussions with him on numerous occasions, quite enlightening.
Adolfo
He is a very patient teacher and really goes the extra mile when it comes to explaining things I'm having trouble with.

My daughter became interested in playing the bass guitar after seeing a friend perform in the Jazz Band concert at her school. After asking around, Shawn came highly recommended. He was nice, knowledgeable, dedicated to teaching and I was impressed with how kept my daughter engaged and motivated. He is someone I recommend highly.

Private Upright Bass Teacher

I've been teaching music for 15 yrs on guitar, piano, bass, cello and bass. My students have ranged from from 5yrs to 75yrs of age. I have seen many student go on to join orchestras, bands, broadway shows or simply continued their education to a university or college. Being able to read music profeciently has given me the opportunity to teach off many method books but like to use Alfred Method, Mel Bay and Frederick Noad Method books. I teach many styles ranging from classical, jazz & blues, rock, contemporary and pop. I do stress and recommend all my students to learn how to read music and usually by our second or third lesson they will playing simple songs. I am here to help you make music!

My classes are very flexible when it comes to what the student wants. I can go from just teaching very basic bass playing to advanced harmonic concepts and jazz improvisation. On the first class, I give the student the choice of controlling our lessons materials about what they want to learn. Or the student can choose to let me control our classes, in which I will bring my own materials and ideas in which we should work and will go through the whole academic process of learning music.

"Can't say enough great things about Daniel. We are very experienced when it comes to music teachers, my daughter (9) has been learning Suzuki violin for 5 years with multiple teachers and last year she decided to also start taking Bass. Her lessons are both challenging yet inspiring at the same time- a combination that is hard to do. Daniel listens to the student and has a natural knack for knowing how to change up the lesson when needed while still focusing on building a solid foundation. He understands that playing an instrument also needs a growing appreciation for music/songs that the instrument can play and he continues to grow her repertoire of song styles far beyond the classical that she is used to. Most importantly she looks forward to her lessons and loves playing to songs she is learning."

"Marcelo is a great teacher, very attentive and at the same time very strategic. He knows how to push the students to learn. The lessons are aways fun, relevant and well organized. Marcelo plays many instruments himself, so your lessons will not be just you playing solo, but full on jam sessions."

"Sara is fantastic! My son only started the upright bass last year as an incoming high school freshman. The weekly lessons that Sara has provided over the past few months have helped him improve tremendously. She is both patient and encouraging. She inserts elements of music theory along with proper technique. I highly recommend her to anyone interested in private upright bass lessons."

"At first I was skeptical about taking online lessons, but I love taking lessons with Hannah. I'm a classical bassist starting to learn jazz, and Hannah is providing exactly what I was hoping for in starting my jazz career. The first lesson we went over what my goals are, and she is providing me with exactly the tools that I need to progress. Every week she sends me a personalized document of what we went over in lessons, what I should focus on in the coming week, and music resources (exercises, jazz charts, etc) to utilize! She is patient, kind, knowledgeable in both technique and theory, and pushes me every lesson."
