Matthew is very dedicated to his craft and an excellent instructor.
Ryan
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.

Private Upright Bass Teacher

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

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.
Lucas
David was very patient and thorough with the introductory lesson. He corrected some basic habits my son had and had him sounding better in 10 minutes.

He also had practical recommendations for daily practice.

I highly recommend David.

"I invited Jose to work with my bass students for an upcoming performance. He taught my students so much in a short period of time. His caring personality and sense of humor made the class so much fun. My students wanted him to come back. I highly recommend Jose Carrion as a guest conductor, section coach or private lessonss"

"My son does hybrid in person and online lessons with Darren. Darren is very enthusiastic, encouraging and articulate. After every lesson, my son is energized. For the first time, he advanced to state level after intensive lessons with Darren. Darren also teaches HOW to practice and clearly points out what he needs to do so my son can focus his practice. Highly recommend him."

"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."

"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 :)))))"
