Lesson Details

Bass Guitar

Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
I've been playing electric and upright bass for over ten years, and have been making a living by performing, recording and teaching for the last five years. I let my students choose what music they want to learn, and strive to push them to play their best while still creating a fun and laid back experience. Among the styles that I perform and teach are Jazz, Rock, Funk, Hip-Hop, Folk, Classical, and Latin. Everyone learns at their own pace, and I do my best to accommodate each individual.

Teaching since:
January 2008

I'm a professional upright and electric bass player from Bloomington, Indiana, currently residing in New Orleans. I've taught both privately and at schools for many years and am happy to teach all styles of music and students of all levels of ability. My performing experience includes playing alongside jazz legends Bobby McFerrin and Randy Brecker among others. I've also played countless gigs in styles including rock, funk, hip-hop, folk, classical, Latin and more. My teaching philosophy is that every student should be able to learn the music that they want to learn at a pace that is appropriate and fun. I'm happy to teach both upright and electric bass for any musical style, and strive to create a fun and laid back learning experience for my students while still pushing them to reach their full potential.

Upright Bass · In home

Quinn was an excellent teacher for me. He transformed me from someone who had no idea what they were doing on electric or upright bass into an All-State quality player. Any questions I had about any genre with bass were answered and taught at a great pace. Lessons were very laid back, but had the expectation that I had worked to improve whatever we were working on. I would highly recommend him as a teacher to anyone.
