Hello, my name is Max, and I would like to teach you electric bass. I have played this instrument for over ten years, and I have a degree in Bass Performance from USF. I have studied with a jazz bass teacher at USF, and additionally, I have played with groups of many different genres like rock, blues, jazz, and musicals. I have a lot of experience on this instrument, and I would love to teach any student willing to learn.

About Max S.

Hello, my name is Max, and I would love to help you out with your tutoring needs. I graduated from the University of South Florida where I studied double bass, music theory, and romance languages. I have a great passion for these arts, and I have spent many years perfecting them. I have many years of experience as a musician professionally, and I have been playing double bass, and electric bass for over 10 years. When it comes to romance languages, I have been studying them since a young age. I have taught middle school and elementary school as a French teacher and Spanish teacher. In addition, I have studied music since the age of 10 with very qualified teachers from professional orchestras. I have also taken many music theory lessons with highly qualified teachers at USF and outside of music school. I am approachable and driven, and I would love to share that passion with students and help to achieve their musical goals whatever they may be!

Adapted the lesson to my skill level. That's always a good sign.

Max has been a stellar double bass tutor for my son. He caught on right away how to work with him and improve his playing, technique and music theory. You can really tell he has a passion for music (especially the double bass) and teaching. Will continue to have my son study under him :)

Max was very helpful as a teacher. He gave me a lot of good insight into picking the bass for bluegrass music. I've been primarily playing bowed music. I plan to continue my lessons with him.
