Private Upright Bass Teacher

Hey there – I am so glad that you want to study bass! Upright bass is the cornerstone of my passion for music -- it is such a beautiful instrument and I love to help people find their unique personality on the bass. A little bit about me: I am a graduate of the world-renowned jazz program at the Jacobs School of Music and have been teaching for 8 years. I am well-versed in tried-and-true methods of establishing healthy technique, good tone, good time, and musicality on the bass. I have experience with many styles and genres and have been fortunate to play with artists from over 20 countries. My work has been featured in NPR’s Jazz Critic’s Poll, Jazziz Magazine, and All About Jazz, and I was recently chosen to be a cultural ambassador for the U.S. State Department’s global music fellowship (OneBeat). In other words, we can work together on whatever music really lights you up, no matter the style! Whether you are just beginning or are already advanced, there's so much we can do ...

About Hannah

I hold a degree in Jazz Studies from the Jacobs School of Music, where I focused especially on Afro-Cuban music, thanks to the tutelage of Latin Jazz giants Michael Spiro and Wayne Wallace! My jazz background also gave me rigorous training in music theory and history. My performance career is high

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.
Cara Bidwell
I cannot believe how much I've learned in just 3 lessons with Hannah! She is an excellent teacher, patient, encouraging, and clear. She quickly assessed what I was looking for in upright bass lessons and the lessons are exactly what I was hoping for, and more. I'm so glad to have found Hannah.

It is my goal as a teacher to give you the tools to play music but more importantly to create music.

My Teaching Philosophy

Left Hand-
Scales and arpeggios our the bedrock of music. They are the foundation of everything harmonically and melodically. We will begin with learning our major, minor and pentatonic scales and corresponding arpeggios. Once we have an understanding of those we will delve into our modes and more “exotic” scales.

Right Hand-
The right hand is our time machine. It gives us the ability to play in time and with groove and feel. We will work on rhythmic studies string crossings and practicing with a metronome. Remembering music is harmony, Melody and rhythm working as one.

For those who are new to playing music the hardest thing for some to master is rhythm/time keeping. It is the black and white right or wrong of the music world. Often times our want to progress quickly is hampered by skipping over the basic building blocks of rhythm and ...

Playing the upright bass can be a wonderfully fulfilling activity for all! No matter how old you are or how much time you have during a day, You can master this skill to the level of enjoyment!

Music is a movement, an emotion, an ingenious thought, and an extraordinary way of communication! And all those little details that it possess have been lightened in many different ways by the students I taught - that is what inspires me the most in the teaching process.

I also encourage my students to analyze and talk about the piece we play, or discuss anything they are interested in music in general. Along with that, music theory and ear training lessons can improve your musical performance and knowledge about music.

I am looking forward to enjoying playing and learning music together with you!

In the last 16 years, I have been working as a private music instructor in Europe and in the US. I have 23 years of rich experience not only in teaching, but also in playing and performing various musical genres and instruments (piano, double bass, accordion, percussion) in numerous ensembles. In

Mr. Eddie
We would like to express our gratitude for all your kindness and time spent with our daughter. She made her first music steps with you and now she can get rid of the piano.
She enjoyed working with you while your teaching methods help her be able to play complex songs.
We recommend teacher Nevena without reservation to everyone who would passionately like to dive into music.

"Eli is awesome! Taking lessons with him has allowed me to explore all my different musical interests in depth, and has opened my eyes to the subtle and beautiful nuances that playing classical music requires. He's helped me make music with this instrument that I didn't even know I was capable of making. He's a great teacher, and and an insanely talented bassist."

"Brian first and foremost is a fantastic bassist. I heard live at a local club and asked if he gave lessons. Fortunately he did and I started studying with him soon thereafter. I was a beginner/ intermediate player at the time and over the course of the next two years not only did my playing greatly improve so did my knowledge of music theory. Brian has been a wonderful source of information. I couldn't ask for someone better. I still get an occasion lesson in with him and he reminds me how much there still is to learn. I highly recommend Brian for anyone interested in learning the upright bass or, as was the case with me, someone with the basics who wants to get better."
