    About MeContact Me
    Introduction
    I am double as well as electric bassist. I bring experience in jazz, orchestral, chamber, pop, rock, funk, blues, and R&B music to my teaching.

    My Teaching Background
    I have a Masters of Music degree from the Longy School of Music in Cambridge, Mass. in Modern American Music. During this time I studied avant-garde improvisation, modern doublebass technique, composition, and theory. I have taught privately in Mass. and New Hampshire.


    My Teaching Philosophy
    Each student is on their own journey through their instrument but more importantly in music. Discussion of the student's goals in music is of the utmost importance. From there, I craft a course of work for the student to work through that will enable them to reach their musical goals through the bass or improvisation.

    Rates And Availability
    I teach at my home in Northampton or if nearby I don't mind traveling to the student's house. I charge $25 an hour at my home and $40 in theirs.
