Private Upright Bass Teacher

I'm a motivated and good listener teacher who loves to see his students accomplish their objectives. I have a Masters degree in Jazz from the Manhattan School of Music and a Bachelor in Classical Double Bass from the University of Music and Performing Arts Vienna, Austria. I'm a active musician, both as a leader of my projects as well as sideman. I have played all around Europe, Egypt as well as much around in the New York area. I have also released two albums under my name, composing all the music in both of them.

I have been teaching for 5 years. Right after finishing my Bachelor degree, I started teaching in two major schools where I taught double bass, piano, music theory and conducted the school's orchestra. Since I moved to New York, I taught through the Manhattan School of Music Outreach Department, teaching young students about Jazz and Improvisation. I have also taught privately in my home studio.

Private Upright Bass Teacher

Just like many aspiring musicians, I know what it's like to struggle to improve, only to be told "just keep at it" or "practice your scales." Wondering HOW the players I see manage to access all the notes so quickly and make it look so easy. Their only explanation being "it's like this- *rips gnarly solo* Most teachers will give their students boring assignments and tell them that one day, you can move on to something else... NOT ME. I will provide you with the tools you need to learn and improve.

Upright bass was the first instrument I learned growing up. I will pass on the most critical, simplified versions of everything related to bass and music theory. My unique approach will vastly accelerate the rate at which you improve.

And it gets better... Beyond bass I have used this methodology to teach my self numerous Brazilian percussion instruments, guitar, singing, and for you- any musical instrument you can lay your hands on. The magic is in the approach. I will give you real ...

For the past seven years, my performance career has primarily focused on Cuban Timba. In addition to my real-world experience with the genre, I have held multiple lectures and seminars on the style at universities across New York State as well as online. I feel extremely fortunate to be able to participate in this wonderful genre in such an extensive way, something few outsiders have been able to do. For that reason I am especially passionate about sharing the knowledge I've acquired with others.

I also specialize in jazz improvisation and other styles of "world music" including Afro-Peruvian, Venezuelan and even some styles from southeastern Europe.

As a teacher I emphasize technique, reading, rhythm and creating an organized practice routine. I'm also a strong advocate of transcription, especially of repertoire, which key when studying any style of music.

I also hope to inspire my students to become independent in following there own musical curiosity, regardless of what ...

Ian learned my band's music and hit the stage without rehearsal!

It could have been his deep knowledge of Latin music and musical training, or both. Either way, you are in for a treat of you get to work with Ian. He has the discipline, great sound and a friendly attitude. A very thorough and grounded musician.
Mario
Ian is a kind and patient teacher, a master of his craft and knows how to communicate musical concepts in a clear manner. I studied Cuban/latin music styles with him as well as theory and technique on the bass guitar. In regards to my latin music focus, the information presented is straight from the source, and he has a wealth of material to dig into. He provided the tools and perspective of a real working musician and tailored my lessons to my level of skill.
Nathan
Ian Stewart is rare among artists: in addition to being a master of his craft, he is also a great teacher. While his knowledge of music is vast and deep, he excels at breaking information down for the student and teaching the aspiring musician how to practice effectively and efficiently. He emphasizes the importance of self-assessment so that, ultimately, the students can teach themselves.
I recommend Ian Stewart highly.

He helped me prepare for a solo in my high school orchestra and I felt that I was as prepared as I could have been. I was able to make it into my local district orchestra with his help. He's very passionate about his craft, and it shows through in his teaching."

"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."

"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.)"
