Mr. Carrion helped me immensely during my time with him, and I learned so much about how to be a great bass player. He taught me many things that I was not previously aware of and helped me with my college auditions. Overall, I had a really good time with him and he was a great help.

Online Upright Bass Teacher

I have been the principal bassist of the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra since 2017. I have been playing the bass for over 25 years and have been performing professionally for over 15. I bring a wide range of influences to my bass teaching and tailor the materials I use for each student's needs. I generally start students in method books from Simandl and Vance and move on to Rabbath, Petracchi, and various other materials that will help each student.

About Cory

I have been the principal bassist of the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra since 2017 and professor of double bass at Nazareth College since 2019. I grew up around Atlanta, GA and started playing piano when I was around 7 years old and bass and guitar when I was 11. Most of my education has been

Cory was an awesome & patient piano teacher for my 4 year old son. He did hands on training and gave him work to do on his own which helped tremendously! Thanks Cory!!!!
Skip F.
My experience with Cory has been excellent. He is a good teacher who knows how to keep me going and understands my goals. I have temporarily with- drawn from the program as the erratic nature of my life and travel requirements makes it difficult for me to schedule reliably. Also, some problems with the communication software have, at times, made the learning difficult. Please understand that my decision to stop is in no way a reflection on Cory or his teaching ability. I will be glad to re-connect with him when conditions permit.

He’s very patient and kind especially for 2 active little girls.

Thomas is honestly an amazing musician and teacher. He was really patient with me. Despite having to deal with major timezone differences (as I live in Myanmar), he took the time to figure it out. Also, he helped me figure out the stuff it took me months to figure out. He also really knows what he's doing. I learned so much in that hour of practice. 10/10 would recommend him.

"Mr. Fox has been an amazing teacher! Just one lesson in, and he taught me more in 30 minutes than I learned in 3 months of playing upright bass at school! He has a way of teaching that is quick, in-depth, and efficient without feeling rushed or confusing. I would definitely recommend him to anybody who is looking at learning how to play the upright bass.

"My son Ethan started working with Darren early this summer after Ethan's previous instructor for 5 years had decided to retire . I was surprised how quickly Ethan was bonded with Darren in this virtual setting. Due to Covid 19, all lessons have been conducted via Skype. Here is what Ethan was talking about Darren. "I have nothing but good words to say about my experience with Mr. Sacks. within a few weeks, I improved a lot. He was able to help me fix fundamental issues with my playing. He was also incredibly kind and patient with me. Mr. Sacks was also always able to explain things well and give me new ways to improve my playing. He doesn't let go of my mistakes but very encouraging when providing advice.""
