Teaching since:

I am a professional bass player, pianist and record producer. I graduated from Berklee College of Music with a Bachelors degree on a full ride.

During my time at Berklee, world-renowned bassists such as Steve Bailey and John Patitucci have mentored me. One of my original
compositions “Chuk for Chic” that was premiered on Berklee’s YT channel , has garnered the attention of Jazz legends such as
Rufus Reid, Ron Carter and Chick Corea and has been featured on online bass magazines such as ‘NoTreble.’ A write-up for my
show at Salem Jazz festival was featured in the Boston Globe.

Bass students can expect to improve week to week in their technique. Every bass player has a unique approach; I teach my students to open up themselves in order to unlock their own individual sound.

I teach piano students of all different ages and experience levels. i'm self taught and later went to college, so i'm bringing two worlds don't have to go to a music college to be a fantastic musician.

As a professional record producer I travel to record/ produce different artist. I look forward to meeting you and helping you to become a better musician!

Chuks is amazing!!! alot of talented musicians i know really suck at teaching but he's a combination of both. He makes everything so easy that you start thinking like a pro in one hour. His personality is incredible! always smiling!:))
after a month of lesson i can easily play by ear and transcribe practically anything, and he makes you think "outside the box". Thank you so much Chuks!
