With over 12 years of touring with world class jazz musicians and chamber groups like John Scofield, Ari Hoenig, Ambrose Akinmusire, Peter Bernstein, Fred Ho's Eco Music Big Band, and more along with a masters in jazz performance I have developed a methodology to upright bass playing combining a theoretical and "on the bandstand" approach to the bass.

Michael is patient, warm, and friendly. My son (almost 9) is excited to move forward with lessons.

Best lesson I've had in a long time. Been searching for a teacher like Michael. Great mentor who knows his stuff with over 15 years of experience. Solid studio space. Cheaper to book 1 hr.

I just finished my first lesson with Michael on bass! He's a great teacher, he's patient and has ALOT of experience. The in home studio was cool, a great space with every instrument. Good rate. Worth the money.

Michael has taught me more in one month than I have learned in years of playing!
