Private Upright Bass Teacher

I teach both electric and upright bass. My focus is on a healthy and sustainable technique, ensuring fluidity in your playing with minimal strain on your body. Whether you're playing folk, blues, country, or swing, I can help you sound better, play longer, more imaginatively, and more comfortably, and have more fun.

I've been playing folk, country, and rock guitar since 1995, and played upright bass, banjo, and rhythm guitar in gigging old-time bands for ten years. I currently play bass and sing in a cover band, and release original music and collaborations on major streaming platforms.

Stanley has been teaching both my sons for the past month and a half and it’s been going great ! He recognized early on that the kids would need different teaching styles and was spot on in his assessment. We look forward to the kids gaining proficiency and a love for music under his tutelage.

My aim as a teacher is to inspire my students to explore their creativity. In order to help them during their learning processes, I instruct them in listening to, analysing and improvising jazz, and world music of various cultures and styles. Towards building and refining a personal aesthetic of each of my students, I lead them through exercises in critical interpretation and evaluation of the expressive qualities of music in relation to other art forms.

"Original Gift Idea

I purchased 5 lessons from Michael as a Christmas gift for my wife. It was a fantastic idea- she loves her lessons! Michael is a very skilled teacher and I have already noticed improvements in my wife's playing.

I highly recommend Michael for anyone looking for a music teacher."

For the first time, he advanced to state level after intensive lessons with Darren. Darren also teaches HOW to practice and clearly points out what he needs to do so my son can focus his practice. Highly recommend him."
