Private Upright Bass Teacher

I have a deep passion for the bass, in all its musical contexts. I've been a student myself for 18 years and counting, and I look forward to every opportunity to impart what I've learned to others. As a professional performer, I know what's required of bassists - I make it a priority to prepare my students accordingly, and ensure they have a well-rounded understanding of the instrument and music as a whole.

About Alec

I'm a professional jazz bassist, freelancing in and around the New York City area for the past 4 years. Since graduating from SUNY Purchase, my bass has taken me from West Village basement clubs to the Hong Kong International Jazz Festival and everywhere in between! My teaching style reflects my

I haven't played bass seriously in years, but have found myself with much more free time during quarantine, and began taking bass lessons with Alec. Lately, we've been focusing more on bass guitar, my first love! Alec is a phenomenal teacher (and musician!!!), and he's helped me so much to get my bass-guitar game back in shape. So glad I found him as a teacher :)))))
Elijah
Alec has been teaching my 14-year-old son upright bass for two years now. Not only has Alec been extremely professional, reliable, and accommodating as a teacher, he has transformed my son's playing from a virtual beginner to a well-rounded bassist who can hold his own in any rhythm section. Alec's style of teaching is accessible and precise --he has helped my son master the basics of technique while also inspiring him to build his musicality and love for his craft. I cannot stress enough how grateful I am to Alec for helping my son grow as a musician and as a person.
Sunny
Alec has been helping my 11-year-old son with upright bass for almost a year now. We started out in home and switched to online during the pandemic period. Alec is a great teacher: patient, cheerful, organized, punctual, polite, flexible and able to connect with my son. My son is not always the most focused child, but Alec keeps him on task and, as a result, my son has been steadily improving. Alec was also instrumental in helping my son prepare for NYSSMA and the Westchester County orchestra, both of which are rather competitive forums.

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.

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

"My 11 year old has attended an after school music program in our district for a few years playing the double bass. When Covid hit, she was no longer able to continue learning at the same level. Around the same time her music teacher recommended her to audition for a selective music program at Berklee College of Music. That's when I reached out to Darren via his website to see if he could work with our daughter for an 8 week period to prepare for the online audition. I have to admit, I wasn't sure how an online music session would work and what to expect. Needless to say, my husband and I were quite pleased and happy with the our daughter's progress.

Darren worked with her every week for about 45 minutes on a particular jazz song. He introduced great techniques that enabled her to learn quickly and become more skillful. Those 8 weeks were very productive as she learned the entire song. Our daughter created 3 videos and Darren helped us choose which one he thought was the best for the audition. After several months, we received the news that our daughter had been accepted into the Berklee music program. Darren is a very positive and encouraging teacher. He is a very knowledgeable and dedicated music instructor and we are grateful to him for helping our daughter succeed. We will definitely continue to have Darren mentor our daughter weekly."

He's the consummate professional double bass player and teacher. Geoff is intelligent, courteous, patient, humorous and above all knowledgeable. So, if you're a serious upright bass student, I would, without hesitation, recommend Geoff Bowater."
