Next month, I'm packing my bass and driving across the country from Boston to Bellingham, Washington. Here in Boston, I've worked with three really fantastic teachers under whose guidance I've progressed substantially. I'd love to find a teacher within reasonable driving distance of Bellingham who has significant experience with classical music and is comfortable troubleshooting french bow technique. Seattle and Vancouver aren't out of the question, but I won't be able to make it to either of those cities more than once a month on average. I consider myself a fairly talented amateur; probably technically equivalent to someone entering a music school or with a little music school behind them (which I do).
