Private Upright Bass Teacher

I have been the principal bassist of the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra since 2017. I have been playing the bass for over 25 years and have been performing professionally for over 15. I bring a wide range of influences to my bass teaching and tailor the materials I use for each student's needs. I generally start students in method books from Simandl and Vance and move on to Rabbath, Petracchi, and various other materials that will help each student.

Cory was an awesome & patient piano teacher for my 4 year old son. He did hands on training and gave him work to do on his own which helped tremendously! Thanks Cory!!!!
Skip F.
My experience with Cory has been excellent. He is a good teacher who knows how to keep me going and understands my goals. I have temporarily with- drawn from the program as the erratic nature of my life and travel requirements makes it difficult for me to schedule reliably. Also, some problems with the communication software have, at times, made the learning difficult. Please understand that my decision to stop is in no way a reflection on Cory or his teaching ability. I will be glad to re-connect with him when conditions permit.

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!

Daniel is an excellent upright bass instructor. He has been working with my son for almost a year now. My son really enjoys the lessons and believes that he is improving steadily under Daniel's instruction. I am impressed by Daniel's thorough preparation and follow up.
Eric
Taking Electric Bass Guitar lessons with Dan Brown, has been a great experience. Dan listened to my goals and tailored the lessons around my ability and musical influences. His classes are well structured, but also relaxed. Dan has incredible knowledge of the Bass and has encouraged me in all styles of play including slap Bass. I have no hesitation in recommending Dan to anyone interested in learning Bass.

Good experience definitely would recommend! Encouraging teacher who is committed to helping you learn what you want to learn.

Abbey is the real deal. She is the musician’s musician, the teacher’s teacher. As an instructor, she brings enthusiasm, patience, and thoughtfulness to every lesson. Coming into her tutorage as an intermediate level student, she has pushed and inspired me to be a more thoughtful performer and composer. Abbey draws from her deep well of theory and technique to create very practical exercises to fit one’s individual needs. I highly recommend her instruction for students of any level.
Andrew
Abbey is a great musician and she's everything you could want in a music teacher: inspiring, patient, thorough, and absolutely aware of just who she's teaching and what and how that student needs to learn. She's the best.
John
I highly recommend Abbey to the serious bass player. Highly qualified with a Master's Degree, and with a natural talent for teaching, Abbey is one of the best teachers I've ever seen and motivates me to do my best. Always making sure you understand what's being taught and tailoring the lessons to your individual needs and aspirations. Abbey can find problems even you might not be aware of and helps work out a solution.

"Hannah has a rare ability to combine an incredible warmth with a wealth of exercises for improvement. The exercises were truly specifically directed toward the student. In my son’s case, he said this first lesson was also the first time he felt emotionally connected to the upright bass the same was he has in the past with piano and voice. He’s truly an emotionally connected person when it comes to music, yet he’s also a very quick thinker and Hannah could tell when he was able to hold multiple ideas at once. She also acknowledged his joy when it did come. There was a lot of technical knowledge he needed that were holes in instruction and Hannah sussed them out and somehow knew - even though the lesson was online - she knew his cues where it was time to move on or switch things up, or perhaps to add something. I cannot wait to hear the improved sound coming from my son’s right hand technique, now possessing depth and lovely tone that I knew he had in him, but knew also he needed the right instructor to draw out. We are so grateful Hannah is now in our lives in the role of a teacher and hopefully will become a mentor and another adult to look toward for balancing the discipline and enthusiasm music can bring to human beings."

"Can't say enough great things about Daniel. We are very experienced when it comes to music teachers, my daughter (9) has been learning Suzuki violin for 5 years with multiple teachers and last year she decided to also start taking Bass. Her lessons are both challenging yet inspiring at the same time- a combination that is hard to do. Daniel listens to the student and has a natural knack for knowing how to change up the lesson when needed while still focusing on building a solid foundation. He understands that playing an instrument also needs a growing appreciation for music/songs that the instrument can play and he continues to grow her repertoire of song styles far beyond the classical that she is used to. Most importantly she looks forward to her lessons and loves playing to songs she is learning."

"José Carrion was my first private teacher as I began to seriously pursue bass in seventh grade. Not only did our work together allow me to reach top positions in Allstate and success in college auditions, but his giving nature and friendship allowed me musical and personal growth beyond what one could ever expect from weekly lessons. To this day, I perform in orchestras in Texas and in the solo field have even performed at Carnegie Hall thanks to starting my bass career with Mr. Carrion. I could not recommend someone higher to teach lessons on the double bass."
