Teachers near me (Ridgewood, NJ, 07450)
Hi, folks. Not sure if there is a correct forum for this so I'll try here.
Long story made short - even though I teach double bass, I want a teacher for a few months, focus on bowing and orchestral playing. I've played in a few shows (read: mostly pizz), but I'd like to take my classical playing to the point where I could audition for a college as a performance major if I wanted to.
I contacted one well-known teacher near me - I live in Ridgewood, NJ - but she's too busy and isn't taking any new students.
For those who don't know me, I've got a doctoral degree in music (conducting) and used to teach Theory at Mannes College in NYC.
Your recommendations are appreciated, either here, via PM, or via email to steve _dot_ freides _at_ gmail _dot_ com.
Many thanks in advance for your suggestions.
