Hi there!
I have a firm believe that music is one of the purest forms of self expression, and aiding people in discovering their talents and passions is one way that I can share my love of music. As a child I took piano lessons in the hopes of learning to play jazz. Unfortunately I found myself with a teacher with whom I could not communicate, and was not able to adapt to the styles of music that I found stimulating. I was left apathetic, so I quit. Only in later years did I try again, and through teaching myself, found that I, in fact, love the instrument! This is one of the reasons why I really want to teach; I recognize how integral the role is to inspiring and instilling a sense of worth and passion of all kinds of music to my students.

Name is Stephen Menold, and I am a musician. My major instrument is the Contrabass/bass guitar, although I do play Piano and Guitar. I am currently a Masters student studying both jazz and classical styles at Loyola University in New Orleans. I ...

Private Upright Bass Teacher

I have studied upright bass for 20 years. I am classically trained and studied under Barry Lieberman, former assistant principal of the Los Angeles Philharmonic. I went on to study jazz at the prestigious William Paterson University. I then spent the next 13 years gigging and teaching in a variety of situations in New York City and now Los Angeles. I have played a full spectrum of music on the upright and love to impart that knowledge to my students!

About Kellen

I believe this is a great time to be a musician. I have come of age as a musician in a time when music making and the music industry have shifted dramatically. There are many positives in this shift, with new oppurtinites opening up for musicians. I also see these changes not being addressed in m

Kellen has been a fantastic and knowledgeable bass teacher. I came into this with no background in music whatsoever but his teaching process is very simple and easy to grasp. He got a feel for what I did and didn’t know within 15 minutes on the first day & jumped right into improving the relevant skills I needed to learn next. Every lesson I learn something completely new and there is no wasted time. If you want to be pushed to become a better bass player in a very easygoing and welcoming environment, Kellen is the teacher for you.
Fred Z.
Kellen is a gifted instructor. As an adult learner I wasn't sure what to expect, but I was impressed with his structured and thoughtful approach to creating an excellent foundation and building skills.

Great teacher! Kellen has made me really excited about the guitar again.

Students can expect to practice a mix of scales and songs during bass lessons. I primarily use the Suzuki method books, but I am open to using other ones if preferred by the student.

"Ms. Fleming is an excellent teacher, patient, encouraging, and working from a
broad range of experience. As a teacher myself (English), I really appreciate those qualities. Her experience across multiple instruments and music genres is especially appealing to me, as I play several instruments and am interested in many types of music. She gives me hope that I can develop some facility on
upright bass, a dream I have had since I was a boy. (Note: Her insights into how to practice are really helpful.)"
