I have over 20 years of classical bass experience. I have studied at the prestigious Peabody Conservatory of Music and and received both my Master's and Doctorate in double bass performance. I play extensively and have performed with national orchestras such as the National Symphony Orchestra of Washington DC and the Grand Rapids Symphony.
About Joy R.

Hello! I am a classical double bass player with over 20 years of playing experience. I believe that learning an instrument should be fun and rewarding and I love coming up with new ways to make learning exciting for students. Some of my notable accomplishments in music have been playing with the National Symphony Orchestra of Washington DC, the Grand Rapids Symphony, The Ann Arbor Symphony, and many more. I have 3 degrees in double bass performance including a doctorate degree which has prepared me to teach students from all backgrounds. I am looking forward to helping my students find their individual voices on the instrument and to make learning a unique experience.
