Christopher G.

Brooklyn, NY

As a professional upright bass player for the past eight 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 and Manhattan 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.

Chris was on time and well prepared. He spent time understanding where my 11-year old son was in terms of skills, experience and interests, and tailored the lesson accordingly. My son thinks Chris is "awesome", and is looking forward to the next lesson!

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!

Dustin K.

Sunnyside, NY

I have been teaching upright Bass for 5 years and playing for 10 years. I will help you develop a good sound, whether playing arco (bowed) or Pizzicato (plucked). I can teach you how to build your own bass lines, to lock in with a drummer, and even how to solo.

Dustin is a fabulous instructor. He is so very talented and yet that doesn't stop him from being super patient and understanding. He has a way of showing students at their level what areas need improvement and how best to get there. His positive attitude and kindness makes him a great instructor. Thanks Dustin.

I'm always honing my teaching method and you can expect to become more than just a Bass Player when you study with me; Expect to become a Musician.

Jordan instructs with passion and persistence. His musical leadership challenged me and stretched my performance abilities—my abilities wouldn't be the same without him.

Music is my first love. After taking music lessons in High School, I wanted to continue to persue my love for playing the Bass - so I started saving for music school. But just like the Pixar movie Up, life got in the way as my savings went to more pressings needs.

Then I met Jordan [my balloon]. Jordan made me realize that I can still get quality and affordable lessons from an experience performer.

After every lesson I would notice a difference in my performance [which I am currently still taking]. Not sure where my love for music will take me, but I am glad Jordan is there to guide me through.

So if you are looking for a talented, smart, and true profession, go with Jordan. You will definitely get more for your buck.

Thank you Jordan :)

Jordan is great! He's always on time, great with kids, VERY serious about music, and a gifted instructor. He was always willing to meet me in a location convenient for me, was incredibly patient with me, and ultimately made me a better performer than I've ever been before. A+!
