Using your favorite bass lines, we will explore music theory on the bass. Learn to create your own bass part for songs. Be able to demonstrate proper technique and tonal production on the instrument. Learn musical vocabulary and alternate techniques necessary to perform songs on the bass.
My students will learn intonation--time--bow technique--jazz imrovisation--orchestral playing--upright bass is my PRIMARY instrument. I have helped my students pass auditions for select jazz bands and orchestras at the elementary, middle, and high school levels as well as college prep programs and camps. I am a classically trained bassist and my performance career has taken me from renowned jazz clubs in Philadelphia and New York to Amsterdam and Berlin to playing in orchestras at the Kimmel Center and Carnegie Hall.
