Learn the bass guitar from a gifted teacher with 39+ years of experience
I am 48 years old and have been playing Bass since 9 years of age. I’ve played classical and jazz professionally since I was 14 years old. I play Electric as well as String Bass. I am currently a resident Bassist at the legendary Preservation Hall Jazz Club in New Orleans LA since year 2000. I tour extensively having performed in many countries around the world. I teach adults as well as children and feel it is an opportunity for me to give back to the world that which music and more specifically the Bass has given me.

I’ve been a bass guitar player for decades. I decided to learn the Upright Bass as I’ve always wanted to play in an orchestral setting. Well, as chance would have it, I picked the PERFECT teacher. Mitch is a Pro. He’s patient, knowledgeable, humorous and a TERRIFIC teacher. If you’re SERIOUS about the bass - electric or upright - do yourself a favor and give Mitch a call.

In the short timespan of five lessons, Mitchell has provided so much inspiration and practical guidance for my playing, it has been nothing less than transformative for me on the instrument (granted, this is not automatic - I’m working really hard)! He is kind, thoughtful, and extremely knowledgeable, and I think his teaching style would suit a huge range of students. Mitchell gets my absolute highest recommendation, and I am sincerely grateful to have found him on TakeLessons. Can’t wait for the next lesson!
