So, you want to learn the upright bass? Well, you have come to the right place! I enjoy teaching this wonderful instrument to students of all ages and levels of experience. Lessons are customized and catered to serve each student's unique needs and goals. Together, we will work to build your foundation and knowledge of the instrument, such as proper left and right hand technique, exploring comfortable ways to play, as well as note reading and music theory, to help your playing feel effortless. The bass is a beautiful and rewarding instrument that plays a unique role in nearly every genre of music, and it is a privilege to help you grow on your music making journey!

About Erin W.

Hello and welcome to my teaching profile! I am a professional upright and electric bass player. I graduated from the University of Georgia with a Bachelors of Music in upright bass performance.

My musical journey started on the violin but after three years I was drawn to the beautiful, low, rich, warm tones of the upright bass. Playing the bass for the first time was love at first note, and I knew from there that this was the instrument I was meant to play. Since then I have been fortunate to have been able to play in a variety of different professional settings such as: symphony orchestras, wind symphonies, pit orchestras for ballet and musical theatre, as well as blues and jazz.

I also provide electric bass lessons, and enjoy helping developing bass players, of all ages and levels of experience, cultivate their technique and further their love of music through the instrument. I look forward to meeting you and helping you grow on your musical journey!

Erin has been a great teacher for my son. He has made quite a bit of progress since he started with her. She is patient, personable, and her enthusiasm for his progress has really been great. He looks forward to his lessons and practices at home daily.
