Teaching Info

Lessons will be based upon the musical interests of the student and will have a strong emphasis on learning songs/solos aurally. I believe this is the most beneficial way to learn music.

Here is a list of other areas I can teach on both Acoustic and Electric Bass:

-Walking Bass lines
-Jazz Improvisation
-Playing Grooves
-Learning Tunes
-Playing different styles i.e Bossa nova, Samba, Afro-cuban
