My teaching style is highly personalized to the goals and needs of each and every student. With so many genres and styles of music involved, the bass is one of the most versatile instruments we have and the possibilities are endless! My ultimate hope is to help my students realize their own personal goals with music and to help them get there. Above all else, I make sure that my students are always having fun!
I studied at the Manhattan School of Music in NYC where I received my Bachelor of Music with Honours in Classical Double Bass Performance. My teacher was Jeremy McCoy, Assistant Principal Bass of the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra. I began playing bass from the age of twelve, starting with electric and eventually the double bass. I have plenty of experience in all genres and styles and I specialize in Double Bass playing and technique.
