- Ages 5+ and special needs
- Teaching since:
I'm a seasoned bass player who spent five years actively gigging, recording, and writing music with various bands while completing a Bachelors degree in Commercial Music with an emphasis in Electric Bass performance. Now I enjoy using my education and experience to help other bass players develop their skills. I also developed a music education program at a NYC non-profit organization. Teaching music is my great delight!
I am aptly prepared to coach bass players in just about any style of music, including Rock, Hard Rock, Metal, Funk, Fusion, Soul, R&B, Pop, and even Solo Bass playing!
I believe music is fascinating and fun, and that's how I teach it.
Whether you're a beginner or more advanced, I am here to help you reach the next level. Let's get started!
I created a comprehensive music teaching program at Street LIFE Ministries from scratch. I taught beginners to intermediate level students on bass, guitar, drums, and piano, and helped them excel and develop new skills that they thought were unobtainable!
