About Jesus A.

I am a professional orchestral bassist and soloist. I have received my a Master of Music from the Peabody Conservatory in Baltimore, Maryland. I am a Doctor of Musical Arts DIP also from the Peabody Conservatory in Baltimore, Maryland.

I have been a member and Principal Double Bass of the El Paso Symphony Orchestra and have had a successful freelance career in the Baltimore and Washington DC area. I have performed with the Symphony in C, Washington Chamber Orchestra, Annapolis Symphony, Fairfax Symphony, Occasional Symphony, New Prism Ensemble, and many more.

I have performed many solo recitals where I have focused on the Bach cello suites and the works of Francois Rabbath and Edgar Meyer. I have performed the Koussevitzky concerto with orchestra at the Peabody Conservatory.

I have studied with many of the leading teachers in the US and attended many top festivals. Teachers include Ira Gold and Paul Ellison. Festivals include Domaine Forget, Orford, Tafelmusik Baroque Summer Institute, and Jeff Bradetich's Elite Soloists program.

I have taught all ages from beginners to college seniors. I have presented master classes at the University of Texas at El Paso as well as for beginning bass students in elementary schools. I was formerly a Teaching Artist for the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra's OrchKids program.

I look forward to working with you! I know we can improve your playing and take it to the next level!
