I've been taking on-line lessons from Mitchell for the last few months. He's helped me to steadily progress. Mitchell is a highly experienced working bass player and he has a strong sense of exactly what I need to work on next in order to more fully develop my skills. I highly recommend him especially if you are interested in learning to play jazz, walk your bass and improvise. He knows the way.
Bill McCall
This was my second lesson. Mitchell has made thoughtful and practical suggestions to improve my playing and he seems to know exactly where we're headed. Great lesson.
Steve
Mitchell is a fantastic teacher. I selected him because he is a pure bass teacher and not a generalist just teaching bass. I am so glad I did. I am an adult student having tried to teach myself and I can say for sure that after 5 lessons, Mitchell has set me straight and I am learning more than ever. He is enthusiastic and also makes the lessons fun. I have also signed my son up for bass lessons with Mitchell. Give it a try - Mitchell is awesome!

Mr. Greer did a fantastic job teaching my daughter Clarinet. He is very professional and she got a perfect score on all of her NYSSMA solos that she worked on with him. I highly recommend Mr. Greer for private lessons.
Stu
Worked with my daughter and she really enjoyed the lesson. She asked me if she could continue to take lessons with Christopher. He seemed to be able to easily have her gain confidence.
Jim
He is an amazing teacher. He helped me tremendously with my embouchure issues and my sound. His friendly style and energy really motivated me to practice more. Can't wait to get back to school and audition for first chair in band.

My lessons are specific to every student, specializing in bringing out the strengths of each individual student. I will talk with the students and gain an idea of their musical goals when approaching the bass and give them a roadmap to best ensure their success and skill development.

I am familiar with a wide range of beginners repertoire to give students something to work towards. I encourage my musicians to step out of their comfort zone with their playing to stretch their abilities while emphasizing a strong work ethic and personal responsibility, which will lead to a life long success in learning environments.

About Payton

Hello! I provide informative lessons for beginners and intermediate players for all ages. I have been studying the bass for 8 years. I specialize in classical playing. I have a passion for not only playing, but teaching the bass! While I only teach classical bass, I love all genres of music!

"Excellent Teacher

Along with being incredibly knowledgeable, Alex has the patience and communication skills that really make him excel as a teacher. As a complete beginner to the upright bass (and music in general), I find Alex breaks concepts down in a clear, step-by-step fashion, so that it is not overwhelming. He also gives useful tips on how to be a better learner when tackling challenges, which helps make my personal practice even more effective. Alex is approachable and eager to answer questions even in between classes - I highly recommend him as teacher!"

"His technical skills across his many instruments are peerless, and his pedagogical skills are equally impressive. He knows musical theory, history, pedagogy, and practice scarily well, and he is by far the most fun, kind, and committed teacher I’ve ever had. I took lessons with him for six years on upright and electric, for solo, jazz, and orchestral work, and I played in Grammy-winning ensembles by the last year. I’m pursuing a music minor largely thanks to him, and he remains the professor who impresses me most. You’re going to take lessons, so take them with him."
