Evan C.

Brooklyn, NY

About Evan

Born and raised in New Jersey, Evan Michael C. was surrounded by music from a young age. His father, Salvatore C., a talented guitarist dreamed that each of his children would learn a different instrument. After Evan’s eldest brother claimed the guitar, Evan reluctantly picked up the bass at the age of 13. At first, Evan was not happy: It was heavy, and it hurt his fingers. But Evan quickly learned to love the power the bass had over the bandstand and after a few lessons, it was clear that the instrument fit him like a glove. He soon began to perform with high school rock bands, sneaking into local bars and clubs for weekend gigs. A new-found appreciation for upright bass led Evan to start his own trio, sparking a love of R&B and Jazz music that thrives in him to this day. Late in his

Great Teacher!!!

My sons are learning so much in a short amount of time! Evan makes learning music so much fun. They say he's the best teacher they've had so far! I have to agree. He's an all around nice guy who is down to earth and amazingly talented.

my experience

Tom really knows his way around a bass. Each time I go for a lesson, i leave happy about the things we've accomplished in the lesson. Anything that i would like to learn Tom makes it possible for me to do so. I started getting lessons in order to not slow down on my playing. With my schedule constantly changing Tom has been very nice at accommodating when possible.

Christopher G.

Brooklyn, NY

As a professional upright bass player for the past five or so years, I can help you with any thing from the basics to what to know on a professional gig. I can teach classical technique, Jazz soloing/walking, how to get good sound/intonation, and give professional help for those trying to bridge the gap into the gigging realm.

About Christopher

In my years of teaching and being taught I have realized that the best teachers are those who really focus on the needs of the student and help them realize their passion for playing music. This usually involves a lesson plan which combines both technical aspects and working on songs, so that the student is both working and having fun at the same time! I can travel to Brooklyn, Manhattan and some parts of Queens to give lessons. *** Travel Equipment *** I can provide music, music stand, amp, etc at my studio. I expect a student to have their own instrument, although I can supply one of my instruments for lessons at my studio. *** Specialties *** I can teach from beginner to very advanced on guitar, bass guitar and upright bass in the styles of Rock, Jazz, Blues, Pop, R&B, ...

I've really enjoyed taking lessons from Chris. He is knowledgable and able to articulate intricate musical concepts while presenting a casual, welcoming vibe. He honed in quickly on where I was in my training and steered the lessons to what I needed most to learn at that moment. I've progressed quite a bit since taking lessons with Chris. I'm playing more and better and I can't think of any higher praise for a teacher.

It was always a lifelong dream of mine to play the bass and Chris has made that a reality by providing affordable lessons and taking a slow, hands on approach to teaching me the bass. He is also such a nice guy so that makes the whole experience that much better. I am forever thankful that I met Chris and look forward to working with him more!

Chris got me suuper excited about learning how to play the guitar. As a beginner, I was nervous for my first lesson but Chris made it fun from the start. Very patient and relaxed teacher. He calms your nerves and gets you doing a lot each lesson. I've only had a few and my friends are already (sort of) impressed!

Isaac J.

New York, NY

In 10 years of teaching the bass, I've guided students from their first encounter with the instrument through professional performance and college study. I love teaching the bass because playing the bass ties together so many fundamental elements of music in every genre.

I have a degree in Jazz Performance on the double bass from NYU and have performed professionally in many styles from jazz to classical, rock, soul, funk, merengue, and everything in between. Studying the bass with me can be as focused or as broad as needed for each student. I enjoy all of my lessons, learning each and every baseline on Sgt Pepper's, focusing on reading skills and music theory, or improvising walking bass lines over jazz standards. I always focus on the goals of my students and how best to build a true understanding of the instrument, it's role in an ensemble, and the tradition of the music.

About Isaac

Cited by All About Jazz as a musician with "all the groovy elasticity necessary to encompass the melodic complexity of compositions," Isaac is a strong voice among a new generation of musicians. Discovering a love for the piano, guitar, and bass in his youth, Isaac began performing in coffee shops and jazz clubs at the age of 15, quickly becoming one of the most sought-after young musicians in Westchester County. While still in high school, Isaac had the opportunity to study with jazz legend John Patitucci. Isaac's selection for New York's prestigious All-State Festival came as no surprise. Isaac graduated from New York University's undergraduate jazz program in 2009, where he studied with many seminal jazz musicians including Ari Hoenig, George Garzone, Kenny Werner, Jean-Michel ...

Isaac is the best teacher I've ever had and he is super fun to work with. I am learning all different kinds of cool music with him, from blues to classic rock to jazz. I feel like I am learning so much with him, from playing music to reading music to writing music.

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.

John is one of the most gifted musicians I know. His ability to see music as an extension of his soul sets him apart from the herd. John helped with my breathing so I can last longer. I would recommend anyone to meet with john and take a lesson on anything musical. Love this guy!!!

John is extremely versatile and talented, and his love for music is so obvious and inspiring. I went to him with what I thought was a solid foundation of knowledge but he brought so many new ideas to the table that I started thinking of music in a whole new-and positive- way. He is very personable and easy to work with, and he treats you with respect and focused attention to detail. Definitely try working with him, you won't regret it!
