    Available for Instruction?:

    Teaching Credentials:
    I offer affordable, basic instruction to beginning students in Electric Bass and Double Bass. My goal as a teacher is to help establish basic fundamental techniques you will not have to relearn and assist you in discerning your specific interests in the instrument. As you move toward "intermediate" ability I will assist you in finding a long-term teacher that will meet your musical goals. Lessons available in-person at my home in Chicago. Depending on distance I may offer instruction in your home for a modest increase in fee.
    I have played bass since 1991, beginning on doublebass (played in orchestras through end of high school) and adding electric bass in 1995.

    Solid, competent player primarily playing various types of rock and classic country. Have also performed in Klesmer/European folk, American Folk, Gospel, Worship and other styles.

    I am also a novice Pedal Steel Guitar player.
