Private Upright Bass Teacher

With or without a bow, upright bass students that study with me can learn a variety of styles (classical, jazz, bluegrass, etc.). Lessons include focus on intonation, dexterity, and rhythmic independence with special attention to having a comfortable approach to the instrument. Students will always have tangible representations of their work through recordings and personalized musical guides.

Hello! My name is Daniel and I have been playing and teaching guitar and bass (electric and upright) in all styles for over 15 years. I even have a Masters Degree and a Bachelors in music to show for it. My students have the benefit of highly customized lessons based on their interests and goals

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

I had a great first lesson with Jessica. The lesson took place in a comfortable studio in her house. We discussed my goals and then reviewed where I am currently. She paid carefully attention to my body position with the bow and had several great suggestions on exercises to improve it. I'm already looking forward to the next lesson.

Jessica is very nice!
TeriE
I really enjoy taking piano lessons with Jessica. It had been 40 years since I took lessons (as a teenager). Jessica's manner as well as her knowledge and love of music is just what I was hoping to find in a teacher. Her ability to explain musical concepts and her thoughtful approach to teaching has far surpassed my expectations. She gives great constructive feedback and ensures that you understand what she is saying. She is very positive and patient. I thoroughly enjoy my lessons with her and recommend her strongly.

I’ve been taking lessons with Matthew for the past six months and he is a very knowledgeable instructor and all around good guy. 10/10 would recommend.

Matt's a great teacher, musician and person all around. I've played guitar for years now but I always leave feeling like I've learned something useful and its never a dull time!

Sean was really on the spot with us. I am a beginning strings instructor, and my son didn't want to take lessons from anyone but me. Not only did Sean win me over with his pedagogy, but he won my son over as well.
