    Intermediate, mostly self-taught jazz bassist needs help with bowing and thumb position. Anyone on this board teach? Or know of someone accepting students?

    Chistoph Luty. I don't know if he is taking more guys. He helped me out a lot. If your interested let me know and I'll ask him if it's OK to give you his e-mail address.

    He's at usc, don't know if he's taking students or not, but he's an amazing jazz player, teacher, AND is very very good at the classical technique- He was once principal of an Amsterdam symphony.
    makes his students learn solos, and teaches them good bowing and upper position technique.

    If any of you know that they are accepting students (I assume John Clayton would be a bit too busy?), please send me the teacher's contact info: franko@gmail.com.

    Thanks!

  6. Luther Hughes is in LA and teaches private/and @ Cal State Fullerton, you can find his web site and email him. Also Bruce Lett at Cal State Long Beach, you can google him for a phone number at the college. He lives in Malibu, and his touring often with Ernie Watts promoting Ernie's new album. Bruce is a great player and gentlemen. Good luck!

    You could also email John Clayton and ask if he has any recommendations for other teachers in the area.

    You can't go wrong with any of the USC bass faculty. They are fabulous players and teachers. Many of the other players that you would find out there learned from one of the four.

    I am at Idyllwild Arts Academy, and study with Chris Hanulik. He is a really great teacher, I don' think he has a very big studio though. I've heard great things about Denis as well.

    Peter,

    Have you been out to Aspen with Chris and if so are you going this year, for just the first session? I'm looking for a roomate. Drop me a PM or email.

    Justin,
    I am thinking of applying, don't know if I will get in. If you can room with a highschool roomate, and I get in, it sounds good to me.
