My primary goal as a teacher is to cater each lesson to the individual player's personal goals as a musician and a professional. We are all unique, and being able to express our uniqueness as musicians and people to the world is what I feel is most valuable, so my ultimate goal as a teacher is to eliminate the barriers and teach the student how to truly sound like his or herself.

Upright Bass · In home

I asked Aron to specifically help me with my bowing. He saw exactly what I needed to change and helped with ergonomics too. I appreciated his patience and he obviously knows what he's talking about.

Aron is extremely educated but also very down to earth and patient. Aron helped me on both electric and upright. He was able to gauge my skill level on each and allowed me to pick the material and pace at which I wanted to go with lessons.
I highly recommend taking with Aron as it’s fun and extremely effective.
