Learn to play bass guitar. Rock out to your favorite songs. Get a solid foundation. Create your own licks.
In 10 years of teaching the bass guitar, I've guided students from their first encounter with the instrument through professional performance and college study. I love teaching the bass because playing the bass ties together so many fundamental elements of music in every genre.
While I have a degree in Jazz Performance on the double bass from NYU, I have performed on the electric bass professionally in many styles from jazz to rock, soul, funk, merengue, and everything in between. Studying the bass with me can be as focused or as broad as needed for each student. I enjoy all of my lessons, learning each and every baseline on Sgt Pepper's, focusing on reading skills and music theory, or improvising walking bass lines over jazz standards. I always focus on the goals of my students and how best to build a true understanding of the instrument, it's role in an ensemble, and the tradition of the music.
Bass lessons are taught one-on-one and from a beginner level to an Intermediate level. Ages of students start at 6-years-old and up. I have many adult students as well. It's never too late to start a new instrument.
I have recorded and toured the world playing bass with renowned artists in all styles. I’d love to help you get to your goals, whether if you’re looking into becoming a professional musician, preparing for a college audition, or just rocking out with your friends. I can teach you how to master different grooves like rock, funk and R&B, how to play your favorite songs, theory or technique.
