After practicing on my own the past few months and lots of reading, I am learning how essential a teacher is. I played electric bass guitar for a number of years, but just recently picked up the double bass. I'm not sure if this is the right place, (if it isn't, please remove this post), but after looking around online, and not having any local contacts in the area, I am having a hard time finding a teacher. I'm sure there are many, but it is hard for me to just arbitrarily pick one. I am especially interested in learning proper technique, as I type in my day job and rock climb, so am likely more susceptible to tendon/hand issues. I am particularly interested in jazz, but know in the beginning it makes little difference (maybe?). Anyone have any recommendations for a beginner interested in honing in on proper technique? If not, is there anything in particular I should be looking for?
