My name is Jeff and I have been a bass player for over 20 years. I have professional experience on bass guitar and have played, performed, and recorded with many bands and musicians since the mid 1990's. I currently perform throughout the Chicago area in bands and in musical theatre pits as well. I am fluent in all styles of music including rock, jazz, soul, R&B, metal, and classical. I also play double bass and have a Bachelor in Music degree. Your success as a growing musician is important to me so I am sure to incorporate a firm understanding of music theory and fundamentals into playing the bass. I am extremely versatile and have a relaxed, outgoing personality that allows me to be a successful teacher. Whether you want to learn how to play your favorite song, or you want to learn how to read music and understand music theory, I can help you grow into the musician you want to become.+ Read More

I’m not usually one to write reviews but Jeff is such a great teacher. He really helped to develop my playing to where now I consider myself a confident bassist. His style of teaching not only helped me to be a better bassist, but also helped me internalize musical concepts that will help me for the rest of my life. I strongly recommend Jeff if you are looking for someone to really take you to the next level!+ Read More
