Private Upright Bass Teacher

Have you been dreaming about playing the double bass, but have been intimidated by its size and the lack of frets?
I will walk you through all the specifics of the instrument, step by step, while setting up a realistic and satisfying practice routine for you.
We will explore the role of the bass in the rhythm section (and in music generally) and build a strong foundation in technique, rhythm & time feel, practical music theory, sight-reading and improvisation. All levels & ages welcome!

Lisa is the best!!! I came to her as a complete beginner, having tried both guitar and piano but always having been drawn to electric & upright bass, and a bit daunted on how to jump in. She was the perfect person to start with - warm, supportive, and encouraging. She is a super badass musician and the way she plays is inspiring! But more importantly, she knows how to make whatever we're learning interesting and fun. From Peter Gabriel songs to Pink Floyd to Gershwin, I can't recommend her enough.

Lisa has given me a better insight on the double bass and how to physically approach the instrument in a healthy way. Furthermore her creativity and fun with music has been a great push to expand my creativity through the instrument. I would definitely recommend lessons with her as she provides you with a strong foundation.

Kept missing class without any heads up so I had to just wait around and hope he'll show up, ignored my calls and messages to reschedule, so I had to just get a refund from TakeLessons. As a teacher he is good, but very unprofessional behavior in terms of accountability and respect for students' time.

"I just finished a series of online upright bass lessons with Dr. Norman. It's wonderful to have a lesson without toting the bass around town. Dr. Norman is impressive in skill and knowledge. There was nothing musically he didn't know, couldn't explain, or demonstrate on the bass. He has a keyboard at hand to play chords or emphasize a particular key, and he is proficient on that too. Dr. Norman is A++."

"Ms. Fleming is an excellent teacher, patient, encouraging, and working from a
broad range of experience. As a teacher myself (English), I really appreciate those qualities. Her experience across multiple instruments and music genres is especially appealing to me, as I play several instruments and am interested in many types of music. She gives me hope that I can develop some facility on
upright bass, a dream I have had since I was a boy. (Note: Her insights into how to practice are really helpful.)"
