    hey everyone, my bass teachers moving to LA in October, so i'm trying to find a new bass teacher, ive played electric for 4 years now, my main focus points are Sight Reading, Soloing, Theory, and finally Technique. I listen to alot of jazz and Fusion. my main influences are Stanley Clarke, Dominique Dipiazza, John Patitucci, Hadrien Feraud, Victor Wooten, Jimmy Johnson, Skuli Sverrisson, Dave Carpenter, Steve Swallow, Michael Manring, Bunny Brunel, Stu Hamm, Tetsuo Sakurai, Matt Garrison, Tony Grey and many more

    if anyone teaches bass in Northern Virginia, it would be really helpful

    check out the guys who play in the military jazz bands in the area. Jim Roberts is one of them. There's a ton of great players there. There's also John Pineda but he's in Annapolis.

    There's a teacher at Shenandoah University in Winchester named Golder O'neill. I assume he gives private lessons. A friend of mine teaches in Leesburg but his focus is primarily reading and theory he doesn't get into advanced techniques.

    Check out Brittany Frompovich at ladybassmusic.com or look her up on Myspace. She has a degree in applied music (double bass and cello) from Bloomsburg University. She is versed in fusion (big Clarke and Manring fan) and many other styles ofelectric bass.
