I teach both electric and upright bass. My focus is on a healthy and sustainable technique, ensuring fluidity in your playing with minimal strain on your body. Whether you're playing folk, blues, country, or swing, I can help you sound better, play longer, more imaginatively, and more comfortably, and have more fun.

I've been playing folk, country, and rock guitar since 1995, and played upright bass, banjo, and rhythm guitar in gigging old-time bands for ten years. I currently play bass and sing in a cover band, and release original music and collaborations on major streaming platforms.

About Dan E.

I've been playing music since I was five years old (so, over 35 years now), beginning my 'stage career' as a saxophonist in school bands, then playing guitars, keyboards, accordions, mandolins, banjo, and bass in a variety of live acts throughout my adult life.

I've made (as of January 2020) 16 albums and 9 EPs of original music under my own name, as well as a similar amount of collaborative recordings by various projects and bands. All are available on major streaming services.

In May of 2019 I was fortunate to get to write, perform, and produce a song in collaboration with Kai Orion over a weekend at Peter Gabriel's recording studio, Real World Studios. Since then I've engaged in more musical collaborations, often online, with folks around the world. Online lessons are a part of this creative sharing, and I look forward to working with you to improve your skills and increase your fun!
