He's an outstanding teacher.

He is very helpful, and easy to learn from. He is very patient if you don't understand the material right away. He is also very easy to understand. I recommend him as a teacher

Nat S.

Manchester, MA

About Nat

I have been involved professionally in music for over 35 years as a music teacher, performing artist, recording artist, record producer, record label owner, arranger and composer. I have written many music books and hundreds of arrangements for musicians of all levels. I have experience in virtually all styles of music. I offer private lessons to students of all ages and abilities in all styles.
My Teaching Background
My entire family is involved in the arts. My Mom is a painter and violinist in the Cape Ann Symphony, my Dad was an actor and a writer. My Uncle was under contract to Cecil B.
DeMille and appeared in several Hollywood movies with Gary Cooper and Paulette Godard. I was educated at the Berklee School of Music. I also studied privately with John Payne, Jerry Bergonzi, Houston Person, Buddy Tate, Arnett Cobb, Eddie lockjaw Davis, Eddie Cleanhead Vinson. I have recorded 10 CDs as a leader. My CD Crescent City was the #1 Record on Jazz Radio Charts coast to coast in 2002 and #35 of all jazz Records released in that year. I performed on “Good Morning America” as part of the Mardi Gras coverage. I have performed in New Orleans at Jazzfest, Satchfest, and major venues including Tipitinas, Snug Harbor, and the House of Blues and with the Neville Brothers and the Marsalis family. Also in New York City at The Village Vanguard with Buddy Tate and Scott Hamilton, Birdland with the Count Basie Band, the Lester Young Tribute Concert in NYC, and Cecil’s Jazz Club in New Jersey. I headlined at Boston’s “Steppin’ Out” concert sharing the stage with Delfeayo Marsalis, Ellis Marsalis, Tito Puente Jr. and many others, and at the Jazz Week festival in Boston sharing the stage with Max Weinberg from the "Late Nite" with Conan O'Brian Show. Primarily a saxophonist I also perform and teach Piano, Guitar, Bass, Drums, Clarinet, Flute, Trumpet, Trombone, Banjo and Mandolin.

My Teaching Philosophy
I approach teaching each student as a unique individual and try to assess what their skill levels and goals are and how I can help to take them to the next level. When I find that a student reaches a certain level I start creating unique arrangements for them that will help them grow even faster musically. I have students from age 5 to age 85 on all instruments. Along with private lessons I offer ensembles. One of my students performs professionally with me on trumpet. He is now 18 and has been studying with me since the second grade. Another of my students started two years ago at age 56 on Bass Guitar and then Bass Violin. He now performs regularly with me as well. One of my students is 10 years old. His mother and father are from Brazil. He has been studying with me for 5 years. He began on piano and added the trumpet about two years ago. His best instrument is the drums however! After studying with me for only a few months he has become the drummer in my main ensemble which includes the two previously named students and is performing with us a concert which is part of a big arts festival. I teach my students that there is no limit to what they can achieve if they keep trying!

Schedule and Availability
I teach six days a week year round at my home studio. I offer lessons from 1/2 hour to as many hours as I can fit into my schedule. I also offer Skype lessons.

Chris B.

Rockport, MA

About Chris

Chris Baum is an American violinist, composer, educator, and recording artist. A pioneer of modern string technique, his strength lies in his versatility, consistently pushing the boundaries of the violin while molding his playing to fit ensembles and genres often deemed unsuitable for the instrument. Trained in a demanding classical environment, Baum expanded his musical vocabulary at Berklee College of Music, where he studied contemporary repertoire under Eugene Friesen, Mimi Rabson, and Sheldon Mirowitz. He graduated with honors in 2010 with a degree in film scoring and composition.

is' growing list of credits include collaborations with Bent Knee, The Dear Hunter, Thirty Seconds to Mars, Dropkick Murphys, Amanda Palmer, Symmetry, Art Decade, Ben Levin, Guy Mendilow, Jherek Bischoff, and the Video Game Orchestra, who recently featured him as a soloist at Boston’s Symphony Hall and on the ensemble's recent tours in China and Taiwan. He currently resides in recording studios, tour buses, and occasionally, Rockport, MA, where he teaches music at Brookwood, Pingree, and Rockport Schools.

Chris' teaching curriculum consists of material and techniques custom-tailored to the individual, with a strong emphasis on technique, theory, ear training, and improvisation. He has been sharing his passion for the violin to musicians of all levels and ages for the past decade, whether their interests lie in classical, jazz, rock, folk, avant-garde, or somewhere in between.

I think the 5 star description sums it up nicely, 'Best instructor ever'. I've worked with Chris for a few months now and his knowledge, friendliness, and ability to to teach are astounding! He teaches in a very dynamic way, adjusting the lesson on the fly to make sure you are learning what you need to know, when you need to know it, and at a pace that works well. Definitely recommended!
