I’ve been taking lessons with Matthew for the past six months and he is a very knowledgeable instructor and all around good guy. 10/10 would recommend.
John
Matt's a great teacher, musician and person all around. I've played guitar for years now but I always leave feeling like I've learned something useful and its never a dull time! I feel much more confident in my ability to pluck a bass and would recommend him to anyone at any level of playing ability.

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.

My goal as a teacher is to give you the facility to express yourself through music. The key parts to developing this facility are:

1. theory -- if you know your theory, you know the best way to express your idea without having to think about it
2. technique -- the last thing you want is for your technique to hinder your ability to express your idea. Having good technique lets your ideas flow naturally

When you take lessons with me, you get out of it what you put in. Your job as student is to be honest with what you expect to achieve and my job as teacher is to give you the tools to achieve it

About David

I have been playing music almost my entire life. I first started on trombone in 4th grade then switched to guitar in 6th. I picked up the electric bass in my later teenage years and learned the upright bass (both jazz and classical) in college. My students get the benefit of my education, as well

David was/is a great guitar teacher ! I came to him with some knowledge on how to strum but he completely transformed my technique... making it easier & better to play! I’m looking forward to continuing my lessons with him & improving my guitar skill!! I Highly recommend David !
Jay
Very grateful to have found David on this site and add to the chorus of great reviews. I have entered the world of music through the bass guitar with David's instruction and am already hooked. Bass is a fascinating (and challenging) instrument so I appreciate working with a professional who caters to beginners. I am looking forward to exploring more about music with each lesson and gaining more confidence playing this instrument. Thanks David!
Kim
David has been immensely helpful in getting me on my way to understanding timing and getting me through some of my mental blocks. In 2 months with David, I feel like I understand more about music than I ever have. His explanations are clear and that makes all the difference in the world for me. He has an abundance of patience, knowledge, and a passion for music. I'm nowhere near where I want to be, but I'm closer than I've ever been...All thanks to David.

"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."
