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

Hannah is such a great teacher and musician! Always patient and encouraging. Her knowledge of music and technique is vast and she has so much to offer. I'm usually very nervous to play in front of others because I'm a beginner, but she creates a safe space that takes the nerves away. She clearly loves what she does and it rubs off; I am always energized after our lessons!

I can instruct you on sight-singing and basic theory of harmonics, as well as building harmonies for yourself or your band. Singers need to understand about keys, meters, rhythm and other theory terms that musicians throw about.

About Wendy

I've been teaching private vocal instruction since 2003, and opened my own studio in 2008. I love helping people find their true, authentic voice, which I feel is essential not only for singers but many other people as well! Singing is a great joy, and the voice is one of our primary modes of expre

I love and encourage creativity in my students. I have studied music for over 15 years and am well-versed in theory, performance and songwriting. I craft my lessons around what the individual student wants, but one thing all my lessons have in common is that you will be able to learn a lot, and do so in a laid-back environment. If you've always looked at a guitar and imagined yourself writing your own riffs and songs, you've come to the right place! Message me to chat and see if I can be of service to you on your musical journey.

About Bill

I've been playing guitar for over 14 years and have been writing original music for almost as long. I really want to share my knowledge with students so that I may increase their passion for music and their drive to excel and create.

Piano is truly, in my opinion, the best instrument to play because all the notes are there at just a press of a key! I've been playing piano since I was 5 years old. I received two bachelor's degrees from Louisiana State University in Music Education and Music Performance on French horn, but never stopped playing piano. I also taught high school band for two years where I taught the keyboardists for the jazz band. Looking forward to working with you all!

"Couldn't ask for a better instructor! Ahmad is an unbelievably talented player, but more than that, he has a system for instruction which breaks down a number of complex concepts and makes it easy to absorb new things. I can tell from listening in on his other lessons (when I arrive early) that he's great at tailoring his lessons to the individual's goals. For some, it's music theory and structure, for others its riffs and teaching particular songs."

"Jarrod is a great instructor!
From the first lesson, our son (11) was excited and engaged! He even play his trumpet for fun !
As a parent, I am pleased with the balanced instruction/practice ratio that has instilled responsibility and dedication without being overwhelming and frustrating.
Jarrod teaches at a student's pace,while adding just the right amount of challenge, allowing confidence to grow in a well organized,fun and personalized instruction plan.
What I like most is; Jarrod loves music and teaching! He addresses success and challenges with enthusiasm, support and encouragement,equally."
