I have taught bass professionally for 20 years, I am also a Berklee College of Music graduate. I teach all levels and all styles including jazz, rock, funk, blues, latin, hip hop, pop etc.. Some of my students have attended and graduated from Berklee, Cal Arts, Oberlin Conservatory, and Los Angeles College Of Music. I've taught Juilliard trained symphony players to Elvis Costello's bass player, and all in between. I also teach beginning to advanced Improv and music theory, and advanced harmonic concepts. Being a Berklee graduate, I use a lot of the Berklee teaching methods and techniques which give the student an array of unlimited resources and learning materials. If you are a beginning bass student wanting to learn the fundamentals and basics of the bass, or an intermediate to advanced bassist looking to expand your horizons of jazz improv vocabulary and techniques, I can help you build a strong musical foundation. And with that, your musical possibilities are endless.
