I am a working bass player in Boston, MA. I have studied at Berklee College of Music for the past 4 years where I have accumulated a lot of knowledge on the bass, in music theory, and of the industry. I love to share the knowledge I have gotten from gigs, lessons, and school with fellow musicians.

About Samuel S.

I am a working bass player in Boston, MA and I've been playing the instrument myself for fourteen years. I have played both gigs and recording sessions in a wide range of genres, from jazz to classical, as well as R&B, Hip Hop, Pop, Reggae, and more.

Whether you're looking to learn new songs, prepare for auditions, perfect technique, or transition from acoustic to electric and vice versa, I can help you achieve whatever your goals are.

In my lessons, I look forward to bringing my insight from my live experiences as a bassist, along with the academic knowledge I have accumulated in my studies at Berklee College of Music.
