Private Upright Bass Teacher

I have 20 years experience performing and teaching bass in a variety of styles. I have my undergraduate degree in classical bass performance, and am also a freelance bass player in Austin, TX.

About Phillip

Hi! I'm a professional bassist in Austin, TX, and was gigging and teaching lessons full time here, before COVID. I'm still teaching virtual lessons, and hoping to find a few more students, since most of my income used to come from gigs. And there aren't too many of those around, these days. Drag!

Best instructor ever. Very patient. Knows how to handle an old guy like me. My playing doesn't really deserve someone as good, but I'm thankful to have her.

Daniel is an excellent upright bass instructor. He has been working with my son for almost a year now. My son really enjoys the lessons and believes that he is improving steadily under Daniel's instruction. I am impressed by Daniel's thorough preparation and follow up.
Eric
Taking Electric Bass Guitar lessons with Dan Brown, has been a great experience. Dan listened to my goals and tailored the lessons around my ability and musical influences. His classes are well structured, but also relaxed. Dan has incredible knowledge of the Bass and has encouraged me in all styles of play including slap Bass. I have no hesitation in recommending Dan to anyone interested in learning Bass.
Rohan
Good experience definitely would recommend! Encouraging teacher who is committed to helping you learn what you want to learn.

Elisabeth has been teaching our 12 year old son piano for several years. She is very methodical in working through curriculum in her instruction, but also flexible to include other “fun” songs that he wanted to play to help keep him motivated. She is very patient and efficient during the lesson time. I may add that my husband is a classical pianist so we were looking for a high quality instructor. We also appreciate that she is flexible with changing lessons times on occasion when our schedule may change for a season. We’ve been very pleased with the progress our son has made under her teaching.
Natalie Britt
If your searching for an amazing teacher your search is over. Elisabeth has been wonderful violin teacher to my son! She makes corrections without being critical..that's huge!! We highly recommend her!!
Denise
Elisabeth is helping me realize a dream of learning to play both the cello and the violin in my not-so-youthful years. I deeply appreciate her patience and encouragement, her knowledgeable and confident guidance. Each lesson session is a joy because of Elisabeth's upbeat, positive outlook and her genuine desire to see and hear my playing abilities improve.
