She is an amazing teacher and you should have her as your instructor she taught me all I know about classical piano so I thank her for that.
Les
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.

I have been playing the bass most of my life. I also play the upright electric. The big thing that makes me stand out is like to entertain so dance make faces and put on a show not just play what’s on the page. I have played classical, solo classical, jazz, blue grass, pop, hip hop and many more. I love improv on the bass and making up my on songs and really exploring the interments potential.

I’m not usually one to write reviews but Jeff is such a great teacher. He really helped to develop my playing to where now I consider myself a confident bassist. His style of teaching not only helped me to be a better bassist, but also helped me internalize musical concepts that will help me for the rest of my life. I strongly recommend Jeff if you are looking for someone to really take you to the next level!
Jeremy
Jeff Was a godsend with our 9 year old son. We felt Jeff really knew what Jabob needed to get him interested in learning to correct way to play, while also having FUN. As a pick up, know nothing guitar player myself I was really impressed with Jeff’s attitude and dedication to music and fostering the learning of music. 10/10 THANKS Jeff!

You will learn posture using French or German bow. You will be guided by me through method books and use supplemental materials I create for you to advance. You will learn some jazz styles and how the bass works in a rhythm section. You will learn about chord progressions in songs. I've been teaching upright for 5 years. You will learn to make the bass sing as a solo instrument. Most of my students have gone on to play in jazz combos and trios. I want to be your next instructor.

Upright Bass is my main instrument. It's what I love and I want to share that love with anyone who wants to play the bass. The lessons are your time as a student. I am here for you and I am here to guide you on the path to success. What I think is really important is always being goal oriented. We will take what you want to do with the bass and plan how we will get there using technique exercises, solo pieces, and fun stuff you choose to learn.

"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."
