About Conor R.

I am a recent graduate of the Mannes Scool of music and I have been playing bass for 14 years. Most of my experience is in the symphony orchestra, but I have played in pit orchestras, rock bands, and jazz ensembles. I have taught numerous students before, but I am excited to take on more as I will not have classes until graduate study in the fall of 2022. For me playing bass doesn't stay at the stage and I embody the qualities often associated with the instrument, holding down the fort, keeping a level head and listening well to others. In my teaching I aim to have my students playing music they want to play, as well as implementing tried and true techniques I have been taught that have been pivitol in my success.

Conor is an outstanding bass teacher! He has great patience as was seen in his tutoring of my 12-year-old child who has a different learning style and attention difficulties. He is an extremely talented, wonderful teacher, and is very committed to his students.

Conor is a great bass teacher! He’s a fantastic player and he worked so well with my 15 year old daughter (a beginner bassist). Highly recommend!
