As a bass player in a punk rock band I learned to apply the concepts I know on the guitar over to bass and slowly started introducing intervals and right and left hand techniques that are not as common on the guitar. A few of my bass students are professionals and have applied to big name music schools after taking my class.

I am an experienced bass guitar teacher with 10+ years of professional career behind me. I'm looking for eager students of all experience levels and ages! I structure my lessons so students learn what they want to learn, while also building a strong foundation of good playing habits (learning the right songs that you makes you a better musician!). I specialize in rock, jazz and funk. I focus on playing by memory but sheet music and cheat sheets are also available upon request. I also have the following tools available to use during lessons: sound recordings, sheet music, and more upon request. Let's plug in that guitar and play some smooth bass lines :)

Bass is the backbone of all your favorite tunes! As a professional bassist, I've played, performed and recorded with a variety of groups, and toured nationally and internationally, and had my bass lines featured on TV, Video Games and even a Royals commercial. In lessons, we'll go over the fundamentals of technique and improvisation, and how to construct effective bass lines.

I work with beginning, intermediate, and advanced bass players, helping them to understand how music works, how to get the sounds they want from the bass guitar, and how all of it relates to music they like.
