I teach lessons for electric/upright bass, jazz strings, and general improvisation. I focus on using technique and theory as tools for creativity, as well as developing good practice habits for peak performance. Lessons are held at Jazz Night School. To schedule lesson, use the button below.
Lesson Terms and Conditions
- Lessons are $35 for 30 minutes and $65 for 60 minutes. If on a limited budget, contact instructor to discuss alternative rate.
- Lessons can be booked at least 3 days and up to 2 months in advance.
- Lessons scheduled immediately before instructor’s ensembles will need to conclude 5 minutes early.
- Lesson cancellations must be done at least 48 hours in advance. Failure to do so will result in a $20 fee for room rental and transportation.
- Student will bring instrument(s) and cables (for electric bass), instructor will provide staff paper for notes, access to amps, and use of other instruments (drums and piano). Jazz Night School has a “house” upright bass, but it needs to be requested at time of booking to make sure it will be available during lesson.
- While no specific amount of preparation is required for lessons, it is a good idea to write down 1-3 issues to discuss, brainstorm, troubleshoot, etc.
