I'm a bassist, singer, composer, arranger & producer originally from Switzerland and currently based in the US. I picked up the Bass at the age of four and a half mainly in the styles of jazz and pop but have since become a highly versatile bassist competent in jazz, pop, world, soul, indie, rock, metal and more!

I graduated from Berklee College of Music in Boston with a Bachelors Degree in Contemporary Writing and Production and have worked with well-known artists like Randy Brecker, Rodney Holmes, Tim Akers, Oli Rockberger, Tigran Hamasyan and many more. Having grown up in a musical family I was lucky enough to learn music through various approach and hope to carry on that legacy and teach each individual the way that works best for them.

While I studied Contemporary Production & Writing I'm still heavily active as a performer on both bass and voice. I play and write for various bands and I'm currently working on releasing two albums: A duo album with Tom Bar (HAGO, Bar Morach) focusing on electric Jazz (KNOWER Style) and my debut album of original music. Since I do produce and write I like to help my students out with their writing as well - give helpful critique and new approaches that might expand their toolbox that they'll need to make music both as a writer and as a performer.

I love transcribing music - so my students can come with ANY tune and I'll give them the tools and materials to learn ANY tune.

I've known Sharon all of her life and have seen, witnessed and am in awe of the innate talent, development and dedication that she has in music and performance be it on the bass, piano or singing. Sensitivity, beauty, accuracy and excellence are just a few superlatives that describe her musicality. On top of that her intuition for learning and keen observation qualifies her as a teacher with the sensitivities necessary to nurture and develop her students talents and interest in music and performance. Whoever studies under her must be considered extremely fortunate!
