Christopher G.

Brooklyn, NY

As a professional upright bass player for the past five or so years, I can help you with any thing from the basics to what to know on a professional gig. I can teach classical technique, Jazz soloing/walking, how to get good sound/intonation, and give professional help for those trying to bridge the gap into the gigging realm.

About Christopher

In my many years of teaching and being taught I have realized that the best teachers are those who really focus on the needs of the student and help them realize their passion for playing music. This usually involves a lesson plan which combines both technical aspects and working on songs, so that the student is both working and having fun at the same time!

My experience is varied: I have a Bachelor's of Music from New York University, have taught masterclasses at the Costa Rica International Jazz Festival and an event sponsored by the the Thelonious Monk Institute's International Jazz day
, as well as taught at music camps (all ages) and at an orphanage in Ghana.

I can travel to Brooklyn, Manhattan and some parts of Queens to give lessons, I can teach kids as well as adults.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can provide music, music stand, amp, etc at my studio. I expect a student to have their own instrument, although I can supply one of my instruments for lessons at my studio.

*** Specialties ***
I can teach from beginner to very advanced on guitar, bass guitar and upright bass in the styles of Rock, Jazz, Blues, Pop, R&B, Hip-Hop etc. I also have experience in other subjects such as Logic Pro, Composition, Music Theory, Djembe. My focus is usually on performance for guitar/bass and composition/production for the other fields.

I've really enjoyed taking lessons from Chris. He is knowledgable and able to articulate intricate musical concepts while presenting a casual, welcoming vibe. He honed in quickly on where I was in my training and steered the lessons to what I needed most to learn at that moment. I've progressed quite a bit since taking lessons with Chris. I'm playing more and better and I can't think of any higher praise for a teacher.

It was always a lifelong dream of mine to play the bass and Chris has made that a reality by providing affordable lessons and taking a slow, hands on approach to teaching me the bass. He is also such a nice guy so that makes the whole experience that much better. I am forever thankful that I met Chris and look forward to working with him more!

Chris got me suuper excited about learning how to play the guitar. As a beginner, I was nervous for my first lesson but Chris made it fun from the start. Very patient and relaxed teacher. He calms your nerves and gets you doing a lot each lesson. I've only had a few and my friends are already (sort of) impressed!

Chris T.

New York, NY

I was lucky enough to study with some of the greatest jazz and classical bassists during my time in music academia. With their guidance and my knowledge of body mechanics (via my studies in exercise science) I was able to create a practice routine that helped me advance my own abilities efficiently, without spending hours upon hours in the practice room.

While practicing and self improvement is part of the journey and the joy of becoming a musician, a student shouldn't have to submit themselves to hours of boring repetition that could lead to injury or loss of interest in that instrument.

I aim to create fun, creative challenges which the student must rise to meet in order to improve and succeed. I hope to instill the ability to analyze and tackle problems through smart and efficient programming that can be applied to all aspects of life.

The double bass is one of the most difficult and rewarding instruments to master and I want to pass the skill and knowledge of my craft to ...

About Chris

I am a conservatory trained musician (Manhattan School of Music) and a NASM certified personal trainer. I aim to create exciting, high quality learning experiences with my students and training clients. I aim to not only endow them with valuable information but also the ability to create and solve challenges that will allow them to grow independently both in their study and application of theory.

Regardless of age or skill level, I'll construct an appropriate program, personalized to helping the student tackle the challenge at hand. Ultimately, this is a valuable skill-set that easily trans
fers to all aspects of life. I encourage students to explore many facets, while maintaining a fun learning environment focusing on progression.

I teach classical, jazz and bluegrass on the upright bass, or pretty much any style you can imagine. i teach all levels and have a lot of fun with my students.

About Brian

I have been enthusiastically teaching music lessons since I finished my Bachelor of Music in 2004. I have students of all ages and demographics. I focus on making learning to play an instrument fun and not mundane. I teach guitar, piano, electric and upright bass. It works out great if there are multiple people in the family wanting to study different instruments. My performance experience ranges from Bach to Hendrix. And I have the ability to help you reach your musical interests and goals whether it be just for fun at home or if you dream of being a professional musician on stage, I can get
you there.
