Overview

From rock and blues to jazz, afrobeat, and latin music, the electric bass lays the rhythmic and harmonic foundation on which music stands. My goal in teaching is to help students find their voice in music by developing strong technique, theory, and groove using exercises I've adapted from my teachers John Hebert, Alexis Cuidrado, Fernando Huergo, and Janek Gwizdala. I'm interested in how music and sounds affect people and I challenge my students to pursue what moves them. Lessons focus on the individual goals and needs of each player. With 15 years of playing and 8 years of teaching experience I have helped students pass music school auditions, form successful bands and create demos of original music, among other achievements.
