I have been playing and teaching music theory and performance practice for 25 years. I also specialize in the electric and upright basses. I have performed in many different musical ensembles, including classical symphonies, chamber groups, jazz bands, rock bands, as well as bluegrass, folk, and Latin groups. I can teach beginners, as well as advanced students. My method emphasizes developing listening skills, applying theory to the art form, and applying both ensemble and solo techniques in the development of the students individual style
