    Fellow basspersons, does any one have any advice on good teachers in the NY metro area? I realize there are a ton of good players and teachers here so let me clarify a little. I'm primarily interested in jazz and other improvised musics. My "classical" studies have slacked off in the last few years. Lately, I've been working out of Rufus Reid's books and Simandl. Bang for the buck is important to me because of a lack of "bucks". Ed Fuqua and others have mentioned Joe Solomon. Any advice on him? Thanks in advance! Bassgeek.

    I know a very good teacher for Double Bass, he's a jazz player and teaches the Simandl method, and his name is Michael Max Flemming. He charges $40 and hour, if you would like his phone number email me and I'll give it to you.
