Lesson Details

Upright Bass

Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate
I have been studying double bass for the past five years and in 2015 graduated from Berklee College of Music with a degree in double bass performance. My main focus is bluegrass, old-time, new acoustic music, and jazz. I like to find out what your goals are and work with you to meet them, while building a strong technical foundation that will benefit you no matter what style you are looking to play.

Mike has a knack for teaching the upright bass. He helped me through some things: figuring out a comfortable posture on the bass, playing over the fretboard and also with some bowing. Loved his take on fiddle tunes on the bass. Take a lesson from him, you won't regret it!
