Experienced professional performing bass player ready to share my passion and the best tips and tricks to learn bass quickly and easily.

Methodology

I want to teach you what you want to learn. I can also guide you towards the skills and knowledge needed to become a working bass player. From beginner to intermediate to expert, I work with a strong basis on theory, reading and listening for a rounded approach to developing your skills without getting bored or burning out.

Background

I was trained at McGill University and performed professionally on cruise ships for three and a half years as a bass player and also a band leader. I have experience playing a multitude of styles from jazz to classical to rock, R&B, latin, folk, and all the ballroom styles.
