Teaching PhilosophyMy goal as a teacher is for my students to have fun playing the kinds of music that they want to play, and to become better musicians as they do so. Students should also make an active effort to practice as regularly as their schedules will allow. I teach both the electric and the acoustic bass, and have had students who have been interested in everything from classical and jazz to bluegrass, pop, and rock of all sorts. One of the best things about playing bass is that there are numerous playing opportunities available to the advancing student. Fortunately, the principles of good bass playing apply to all genres of music!
