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.
