· Upright Bass · In home Great start with Dean
· Bass Guitar · In studio Dean is an excellent teacher. With his background in classical as well as contemporary genres of music, plus his thorough, patient style and experience as a performer makes him an excellent instructor.
· Capoeira · In studio I was very nervous to try capoeira. When I would watch videos I thought, "I can't do that"... Dean makes every class push you and encourage you to do your best and sure enough a few months later I CAN do a lot of things I didn't think my body could do before. Capoeria with Dean really has changed the relationship I have with my body and what's possible.
· Bass Guitar · In studio Dean is a great instructor. He is patient, and his relaxed demeanor makes for a very friendly and inviting atmosphere. He is very knowledgeable in music, and he's very encouraging in a lesson. I would recommend him to anyone serious in pursuing music.
