Teaching since:

I am a professional upright and electric bass player located in Southern New England. I have years of experience as an educator, recording artist, and performer. I am currently pursuing my degree in Jazz Performance from the New England Conservatory of Music in Boston, MA.

I can be found playing with a variety of bands and musicians across all genres. Carley is a member of the Boston based Wedding Band “Speechless,” the modern jazz group “Puppet Club”, and various freelance work. Some of his notable collaborator include Francisco Pais, Jhony Keys, Clay Nordhill, Mark Texiera, Daniella Schatcher, and many others.

I am interested in all styles of music and working with people of all ages and backgrounds! I want to help teach you how to teach yourself, how to practice, and how to grow as a musician. I can help you with everything from jazz, to rock, to classical music and beyond.

I have been studying bass with Evan for 3 months now and he has been unbelievably helpful in my studies. He has tons of information and experience to share and always gives practice materials to address my weaknesses!
