Lesson Details

Upright Bass

Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
Hello! My Name is Torge Goderstad and I am an experienced double bassist specializing in Jazz, actively gigging and playing in NYC, and dedicated your or your child's musical development!

I have been playing Electric Bass for 10 years and double bass for 6 of those. I enjoy teaching adults and kids equally and approach teaching through what the student would like to get out of music, wether that be pursuing it professionally or developing a fulfilling hobby. I teach all styles and French Bow technique.

I graduated from The Newschool for Jazz and Contemporary Music in 2017 with a bachelors degree and Jazz Performance, with a concentration in Bass. I also have studied composition, theory and arranging extensively and all these can be incorporated into our lessons no matter your level!

I have performed both in NYC and internationally at venues including: The Nuyorican Poets Cafe, Lincoln Center, Shapeshifter Lab, Bern International Jazz festival, and many others.

Feel free to reach out and we can discuss your goals, experience etc.. and see if it's a good match!

Hello! My name is Torge, I am from Denver CO and I have been an active bassist/teacher/composer/band leader for the past 10 years, 5 of them in NYC. I primarily teach jazz on the double bass at all levels but also teach beginner/intermediate classical (french bow) and all levels of electric bass as well.

Much of my life has revolved around music and wether you want to pursue it professionally, as a hobby, or are just testing the waters I would love to help you on your journey! My teaching style consists of starting with what interests you in the musical world and exposing you to new ideas, technique and theory relevant to that content. I am comfortable teaching all ages, as music has something to offer everybody no matter what your age.

I am a recent graduate of The New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music where I received a bachelors in Jazz Performance with a concentration in Bass. I have performed at venues locally and internationally including Lincoln Center, ShapeShifter Lab, Bern Internationally Jazz Festival, Williamsburg Music Center, The Nuyoricans poets Cafe, Berkley Californias "Jupiter", The Back Room and many more.

If you have any questions please say hello! I'm very approachable! Also here's my website torgegoderstadbass.com

I look forward to working with you :)
