Please recommend a good bass teacher in the Boston, MA area

Discussion in 'General Instruction [BG]' started by Rodan, Aug 27, 2002.


  1. I think now that I've moved, I will be going back to taking lessons from a good teacher who can really teach me all those things I never learned from my first bass teacher. I'm much more adept at the instrument now and could really benefit from taking lessons from a teacher who can really challenge me.

    Can you recommend some good bass teachers in Boston?

    Thanks

  3. Berklee only does full-time programs and a few summer programs. they don't offer one hour or half and hour a week lessons - their faculty is committed to full-time instruction.

    Anybody? I still would like to find somebody

    I took lessons with Bob Nieske for a while. At the time, he had a regular gig at the Top of the Hub (restaurant atop the Prudential Tower). He also has a band called Wolf Soup.

    He's a DB player but teaches BG as well. Helluva nice guy, too.

    EDIT: I found his website: http://home.earthlink.net/~cravid/

    I go to a place in Newburyport called the Musical Suite. Probably to far from you though. If i were you id take Mr. Fuqua's advice.
