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 ...

Faisal is teaching me guitar and cello. I am a 67 year old woman and I love learning from him! He is upbeat and so knowledgable and the online format works very well for both of us. (Lessons were in person pre-covid). He is wonderfully skilled on the cello and guitar and piano and is able to present the theory in a way I can take it in easily. He has sourced and purchased instruments for me and tailored music, instruments, and lessons to my unique needs (small hands, paunchy stomach, some arthritis). He is positively wonderful with children! I give him my highest recommendation!

Fun and tailored lessons for Upright and Electric bass players!! It doesn't matter if you're a beginner or an advanced student, I will meet you where you are and help you improve your bass playing. Whether you want to focus on learning new songs or improving left hand technique, I'm here to help you reach your goals and make the process fun! Holding a bachelor's degree from The Juilliard School and playing with artists such as Wynton Marsalis gives me a unique amount of experience that I feel is important to give back through lessons. So if you want to take your playing to the next level and discover new possibilities on the bass, I am more than happy to work with you!

I've spent my entire life playing music. I started on the piano at the age of four and have been playing ever since. My second instrument was the french horn which I played for 8 years before switching to the Upright Bass! Both of my parents are professional musicians/teachers so I saw what it take

love teaching strings. I focus heavily on bow technique. I have gotten students into youth orchestras and passed college auditions. I like to use the Essential Elements and Suzuki books.
I also offer online group lessons at a highly discounted price. I suggest that all my students join. This is a great option for kids while class is out.

I've always wanted to take music lessons but instead always made sure my kiddos learned what I never got to. During quarantine, I decided to go for it and learn myself. I found Michelle here on TakeLessons. She was offering a great deal for new students! So on a whim, I purchased 12 lessons, rented a cello, got the books Michelle recommended, and started lessons two weeks later. I have learned a lot from Michelle! She is on time for lessons and pays attention to the details: how I'm holding my bow, how I'm sitting, and how holding the cello can be different for women ;).

Take some initiative with your learning by communicating with Michelle what you are looking for, what your expectations are, what you want to learn, songs you would like to attempt and your lesson will meet your expectations! She aims to please, she is friendly and has stories to entertain and fill the voids if you want.

The lessons have been well worth my time and $$. I've learned a lot!!

My daughter started taking lessons a few months ago as a beginner with Michelle and it has been wonderful. My daughter is a bit of an introvert and i was afraid that she would lose interest if she wasn't playing like a professional after a few weeks. Michelle has a high level of energy and is very patient. My daughter taught herself a bit of a popular song she liked and Michelle said she would help her learn more of it. My daughter remarked "that was really nice of her"

"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 :)))))"

"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."

"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."
