Private Upright Bass Teacher

My goal as a teacher is to give you the facility to express yourself through music. The key parts to developing this facility are:

1. theory -- if you know your theory, you know the best way to express your idea without having to think about it
2. technique -- the last thing you want is for your technique to hinder your ability to express your idea. Having good technique lets your ideas flow naturally

When you take lessons with me, you get out of it what you put in. Your job as student is to be honest with what you expect to achieve and my job as teacher is to give you the tools to achieve it

About David

I have been playing music almost my entire life. I first started on trombone in 4th grade then switched to guitar in 6th. I picked up the electric bass in my later teenage years and learned the upright bass (both jazz and classical) in college. My students get the benefit of my education, as wel

David has been immensely helpful in getting me on my way to understanding timing and getting me through some of my mental blocks. In 2 months with David, I feel like I understand more about music than I ever have. His explanations are clear and that makes all the difference in the world for me. He has an abundance of patience, knowledge, and a passion for music. I'm nowhere near where I want to be, but I'm closer than I've ever been...All thanks to David.
Lucas
David was very patient and thorough with the introductory lesson. He corrected some basic habits my son had and had him sounding better in 10 minutes.

He also had practical recommendations for daily practice.

I highly recommend David.
Chris H.
David went over basic music theory and rhythm with me, and corrected some technique issues. He explained things clearly and when we put some of it into practice in the final minutes I saw instant results. Absolutely excited to do my homework and for my next lesson.

I teach through a traditional style where learning notation is paramount. Proper technique and finger placement will propel us into playing classical pieces and studies.

Private Upright Bass Teacher

I have a deep passion for the bass, in all its musical contexts. I've been a student myself for 18 years and counting, and I look forward to every opportunity to impart what I've learned to others. As a professional performer, I know what's required of bassists - I make it a priority to prepare my students accordingly, and ensure they have a well-rounded understanding of the instrument and music as a whole.

About Alec

I'm a professional jazz bassist, freelancing in and around the New York City area for the past 4 years. Since graduating from SUNY Purchase, my bass has taken me from West Village basement clubs to the Hong Kong International Jazz Festival and everywhere in between! My teaching style reflects my

I haven't played bass seriously in years, but have found myself with much more free time during quarantine, and began taking bass lessons with Alec. Lately, we've been focusing more on bass guitar, my first love! Alec is a phenomenal teacher (and musician!!!), and he's helped me so much to get my bass-guitar game back in shape. So glad I found him as a teacher :)))))
Elijah
Alec has been teaching my 14-year-old son upright bass for two years now. Not only has Alec been extremely professional, reliable, and accommodating as a teacher, he has transformed my son's playing from a virtual beginner to a well-rounded bassist who can hold his own in any rhythm section. Alec's style of teaching is accessible and precise --he has helped my son master the basics of technique while also inspiring him to build his musicality and love for his craft. I cannot stress enough how grateful I am to Alec for helping my son grow as a musician and as a person.
Sunny
Alec has been helping my 11-year-old son with upright bass for almost a year now. We started out in home and switched to online during the pandemic period. Alec is a great teacher: patient, cheerful, organized, punctual, polite, flexible and able to connect with my son. My son is not always the most focused child, but Alec keeps him on task and, as a result, my son has been steadily improving. Alec was also instrumental in helping my son prepare for NYSSMA and the Westchester County orchestra, both of which are rather competitive forums.

Online Upright Bass Teacher

Lessons will be catered to the individual students needs and musical aspirations. As a versatile, free-lance bass player, I'm specialized in a wide variety of musical styles and am able to guide students towards any goal they may have. For all styles, I will be incorporating lessons I learned while studying with a master musician in India.

Jazz lessons will focus on technique, ear training, transcribing, music theory, rhythmic strengthening, and understanding the responsibilities of the bass player.

About Jared

Jared has been a professional musician since 2002, and has had a highlight filled career in those 19 years. He has performed all over the world (4 continents and counting), and has worked with famous and Grammy winning artists such as; Abigail Washburn, Tony Trischka, Steve Martin, David Grisman,

I’ve only forgotten the pandemic when I’m playing the banjo with Jared. I crave clear criticism and he gives me the specifics so I can truly improve. Jared has all the qualities you want in an excellent music teacher, but what takes it to the next level for me as a student is his enthusiasm and gentle humor.

Highly recommend.

Pauline
I knew nothing about the banjo when I started taking classes with Jared, and I learned so much in a short amount of time. He emphasized not just how to read sheet music, but also how to transcribe a song from a recording which helped me learn songs more quickly and play together with others in an ensemble. His passion and patience are a great combo for a teacher!
Ethan
I took lessons in clawhammer banjo with Jared, and learned quite a bit even though I started myself with clawhammer around 1958 or so. He was very thorough and a very pleasant person, and is very patient.

"Mr. Fox has been an amazing teacher! Just one lesson in, and he taught me more in 30 minutes than I learned in 3 months of playing upright bass at school! He has a way of teaching that is quick, in-depth, and efficient without feeling rushed or confusing. I would definitely recommend him to anybody who is looking at learning how to play the upright bass.
