I am enthusiastic about working with students of all levels and ages. In my teaching, I focus on left and right hand technique, basic principles of Bass playing, as well as etudes and solo pieces. I teach many styles of music including classical, jazz, bluegrass, rock, and reggae.
I am a Double Bass faculty member of the Young Musician’s Choral Orchestra in Berkeley. Additionally, I teach Bass in San Francisco public schools under the San Francisco Symphony’s Instrumental Training Program. Locally, I have worked as a string teacher and chamber music coach at the College of Marin, San Rafael and Terra Linda High Schools, and White Hill Middle School. I serve as a Bass section coach for the Marin Symphony Youth Orchestra and was recently put on faculty at the Marin Community Music School.
I teach in my home studio, or can come to you.
