First of all, I want to know what are the students wills and objectives in music. Understand why they want to learn music and what are their interests. This is a major thing to me, to know the student. After that, I work my way by giving the student material that will improve their skills and knowledge. This can be done by several methods (classical, Jazz, etc) that I have or by assignments that I will create in order to solve specific problems. I also want to focus on specific music interests that the student have, by giving repertoire and musical examples that will motivated them.

About André C.

I'm a motivated and good listener teacher who loves to see his students accomplish their objectives. I have a Masters degree in Jazz from the Manhattan School of Music and a Bachelor in Classical Double Bass from the University of Music and Performing Arts Vienna, Austria. I'm a active musician, both as a leader of my projects as well as sideman. I have played all around Europe, Egypt as well as much around in the new York area. I have also released two albums under my name, composing all the music in both of them.

I have been teaching for 4 years. Right after finishing my Bachelor degree, I started teaching in two music schools in Portugal: Academia de Amadores de Música (one of the most important music schools in Lisbon) and ESTAL. I have also made part of the staff of the Conservatório de Música of Azores, where I traveled monthly to teach local students. I have taught double bass, music theory and conducted the school's orchestra. Since I moved to New York, I taught through the Manhattan School of Music Outreach Department, teaching young students about Jazz and Improvisation. I have also taught privately in my home studio, both bass and double bass as well as piano and theory.

Andre is the most amazing instructor! He is very helpful and incredibly knowledgeable. I was a complete beginner and he was happy to walk up and down complex ideas so I could understand them well.
