Hello, there! My name is Maggie, I specialize in classical double bass playing. I've been classically trained at Northwestern University's Bienen School of Music for my bachelor's degree and Cleveland Institute of Music for my master's degree. I am currently on the alumni substitute list of the Civic Orchestra of Chicago, which I’d been a musician member during the 2019-2021 seasons. I'm a patient and understanding person and I am eager to spread the joy and love of playing the bass! I am knowledgable in different types of bass playing technique and I will tailor my teaching to each student depending on what resonates best with them. In addition to music appreciation, I value the importance of solidifying the fundamentals, technique, ear training, physical well-being, etc., in order to achieve ease in good and fun music playing! I look forward to working with you and helping you reach your goals!

Maggie is super helpful, kind, and skilled at bass and teaching. She is very good at giving constructive feedback and helped to take my playing to another level!
I've been playing for years and one lesson in, she offered me tips that are already changing the way I play for the better --in a pretty major way. Excited for more!
Great first lesson.
