I’ve been teaching in a variety of settings since 1980. Starting at a small music store in Acton, MA, I went on to teach at Berklee College Of Music, Boston College, Milton Academy, and Arizona State University. I’ve taught at bass conferences around the world, even ran two weekend bass workshops of my own many years ago, School of Bass I & II. But ultimately, I love teaching private lessons. One-on-one mentorship can be the most rewarding and effective way to help people attain their goals.
Now that I’m off the road, I am teaching again, accepting private students at home in Tucson (worth the trip!), and online. It’s been suggested I have another book in me, and who knows? And if private instruction isn’t an option, you can buy all of my books, watch my entire Youtube channel, and work through the many free lessons I’ve made available here (donations are still gratefully accepted). I love teaching, and I’ve always connected my work in the field to my educational practice. These days… my educational message is simple: Play what sounds right, not what you CAN play. Listen to the music, and COMMIT. Play it 100%, or go home. Learn repertoire! That’ll be $100 please! LOL.
