Online Lessons

Choose your appointment from the calendar, pay your lesson fee via PayPal, and we’ll meet via Skype, Zoom or Teams. I can work with you to improve your bass technique, jazz vocabulary, sound, bass lines, solos and all-around musicianship. I can offer you career advice, filtered through my experiences as a professional jazz bassist for the past 40+ years.

Think about your questions in advance, and prepare what you’d like to play for me. A productive way to use our lesson time is to concentrate on materials found in my books and Discover Double Bass Courses. I would recommend that you explore some of this material in advance if you’d like to learn how I learned to play the bass.

For best results, use headphones for your lesson. Make sure that you have a strong internet connection, and that others in your household are not using high-data internet services during your lesson (Netflix, Hulu).
