Are there any good Double Bass teachers in Chattanooga or around the Chatt. area?
If your area has a Local Symphony Orchestra, start by asking there. That is your best bet to learn properly to play and about Basses as well.
I'd a bet a nickel on what those pros would say about an Englehardt or Kay too!
we do havea local symphony, so I guess I'll start from there. thanks guys
Eric Hansen is my teacher and he's really good. If you want his phone number and information e-mail me or something.
Yo im in the local youth symphony and i know a # of a good teacher. He's worked with several all-east basist (even my self don't know how i made it lol). He's more jazz geard though. But the bright side is he only charges 15$ a lesson. He's not as mutch of a specific finguring kindof guy but he is verry skilled on rithoms and knows what to do and how to do it. If you want his number just e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Wow my teacher charges 50$!
Well he can aford to charge 15$ per lesson b/c he has severl "gigs" going on a week and he has about 5 lesson a day to students.
Despite the common perception from people who live in Connecticut , there are professional classically trained musicians working in Tennessee. Also I'd say that $15 a lesson is seriously below market. You probably should expect to pay $40 to $45 an hour for a lesson.
Alot of bass teachers i know here have their own "plans" based on how they live. Jay Stanfeild can charge 15$ a person b/c on how many he has. Another guy here charges 40 to get his services and 10$per half hour. Most guys here charge on average about 30$ a lesson.
Mcnaire, your teacher is also mainly jazz minded, so it wouldn't really be ethical to charge you much more than $15 a lesson if you're studying to be a classical musician. So you get cheap lessons, but you really do get what you pay for.
Here in LA, we pay $100/lesson, but it's absolutely worth every penny because the quality is so high, and I have things to work on and think about for years to come.
He charges every one 15$ a lesson. He teaches about 4 instruments. Jazz,classical, and march type music. He has had incredible success sending his students to college on scholarships for their instrument. He is a excellent teacher and I get way more than my moneys worth.
There are several classical oriented teachers in Chattanooga that charge between 10-25$.
