Private Upright Bass Teacher

Students can expect a teacher that addresses every single aspect of learning orchestral upright bass: from honing bow technique, to left-hand formation and fingering choices, to reading musical notation, interpreting music and learning rhythm.

My goal is to help students develop a technical foundation on the bass for playing just about any kind of music that they are interested in, and to support students with practicing tips for areas in their playing where they want to improve. My specialty is symphony orchestra training, so I primarily use both the Essential Elements for Strings books and Suzuki Bass School series at the beginning, and then later as students make progress, I begin to introduce standard orchestral repertoire, sonatas, and concertos written for the bass. I have been teaching since August 2016 and so far I have helped students get into All-States, ensembles at the New England Conservatory Preparatory Division and Berklee College of Music, Districts/Regional ...

I have been with Darren for something around 5 ish years and I improved beyond my dreams from when I started. With him I was able to rise orchestra levels, improve my technique drastically and even do districts! (For context I'm a freshman in high school now) Darren is my favorite bass teacher I've had and I am doing all states with him in the fall, hopefully. He's helped me with everything from auditions to grinding on orchestra pieces to starting jazz for the advanced jazz band. If you're looking for a teacher who will cater to your individual needs and listen to you and what you want to learn all the while seriously improving your bass, Darren's the one for you!
Justin
Darren is a fantastic instructor, adept at teaching newcomers and more experienced players alike. There is no aspect of the art of bass playing that he cannot offer assistance in strengthening. For every hurdle I have encountered, he has devised an exercise that helps me get over it. He is particularly skilled at diagnosing the reason why a particular piece, passage, technique, or sound on the instrument is not quite there and then offering the precise advice on how to get it to the next level. I could not recommend him highly enough
Josh
Darren is one of the best teachers I've ever worked with. I am a life-long electric bass player that fell in love with the sound and vibe of the upright last year. The double bass is a beautiful and rewarding instrument, but very difficult to get started on without the guidance of a caring mentor. I had previously tried self-teaching using YouTube workshops and video lessons, but had trouble making any progress. I also suffer from a chronic pain condition, and it seemed like no matter what I tried, I was constantly re-injuring my wrist.
In search of professional help, I discovered Darren. In our initial meeting Darren conveyed a true interest in helping me, and quickly diagnosed and fixed the posture struggles that were causing pain. I gained more understanding of the upright bass in our first lesson than in 6+ months on my own!
As an adult learner, Darren never made me insecure or afraid to ask questions. His warm personality and ability to demystify elements of classical bass really makes him an amazing educator!
After taking lessons with Darren this summer, I proudly felt confident to check off "Upright Bass" as my primary instrument of study at the local community college music program I attend.

Elisabeth has been teaching our 12 year old son piano for several years. She is very methodical in working through curriculum in her instruction, but also flexible to include other “fun” songs that he wanted to play to help keep him motivated. She is very patient and efficient during the lesson time. I may add that my husband is a classical pianist so we were looking for a high quality instructor. We also appreciate that she is flexible with changing lessons times on occasion when our schedule may change for a season. We’ve been very pleased with the progress our son has made under her teaching.

If your searching for an amazing teacher your search is over. Elisabeth has been wonderful violin teacher to my son! She makes corrections without being critical..that's huge!! We highly recommend her!!
Denise
Elisabeth is helping me realize a dream of learning to play both the cello and the violin in my not-so-youthful years. I deeply appreciate her patience and encouragement, her knowledgeable and confident guidance. Each lesson session is a joy because of Elisabeth's upbeat, positive outlook and her genuine desire to see and hear my playing abilities improve.

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

5 lessons in and David has gotten me to break through some of my bad techniques and has also given me completely different ways to think about my instrument. We're just getting started and I couldn't be more excited to see where this journey is going to take my skills.
Kailie
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!
