Online Upright Bass Teacher

My name is Joseph and I’ve been teaching professionally for 30 + years. Additionally, I’ve toured internationally with many artists and have several solo CDs as a leader. I currently play bass with Cirque Du Soleil in Las Vegas Nevada USA and I know what is required to be a professional musician. I have a customized teaching method for beginners through advanced players, however, I will also adopt things that you want to learn as well. I treat every student and lessons on an individual basis and I don’t have a cookie-cutter method of teaching. Lessons we will cover will be proper technique, solid foundation, rhythmic and groove training, learning notes/scales, learning songs, music theory, reading music, composition, ear training, recording techniques and much more. All ages and playing levels welcome! I look forward to working with you.

I teach Classical Double Bass from beginner to intermediate level. I can teach the student from the most fundamental skills to hard solo pieces depends on the level of student. I also feel the music history and theory is also important therefor some elements will include in the lesson.

I am graduating from Manhattan School of Music this year with Double Bass performance degree. I have played with NYYS, and performed in Carnegie Hall for 4 consecutive years. Recently served as guest principle for New York Symphonic Arts Ensemble, and International Chamber Orchestra of America.

"Spencer has been giving lessons to my son for the past couple of years for Upright Bass and Bass Guitar. We started with In-home and now, due to the current environment, have moved to virtual lessons. My son loves Spencer's friendly personality and is always looking forward to his lessons. I appreciate the flexibility of the schedule and the ability to work on multiple instruments when needed. Having a great teacher has always been important. We consider ourselves lucky to have met Spencer and continuously recommend him to our friends and family. My son has advanced tremendously in both instruments, and I credit Spencer for that."

"Can't say enough great things about Daniel. We are very experienced when it comes to music teachers, my daughter (9) has been learning Suzuki violin for 5 years with multiple teachers and last year she decided to also start taking Bass. Her lessons are both challenging yet inspiring at the same time- a combination that is hard to do. Daniel listens to the student and has a natural knack for knowing how to change up the lesson when needed while still focusing on building a solid foundation. He understands that playing an instrument also needs a growing appreciation for music/songs that the instrument can play and he continues to grow her repertoire of song styles far beyond the classical that she is used to. Most importantly she looks forward to her lessons and loves playing to songs she is learning."
