The core of The Bass Studio is our Private Lesson program. Students receive solid instruction in traditional fundamentals as well as modern techniques. Most lessons are taught out of my home studio, located in West Houston near Richmond and Dairy Ashford. There is also limited availability for lessons in the Klein, Conroe, and Kingwood areas of Houston. The studio has limited enrollment during the academic year and open enrollment during the summer. Please call or email for availability, scheduling, and pricing.
Clinics and Master classes
I am available during the school day to come out to your school and work with your bass players. I can help them with their orchestra music or their solo & ensemble literature. Whether you have 1 or 100 basses in your group, let me help your students get the sound you want for your orchestra! Please call or email for availability, scheduling, and pricing.
I can provide your teaching staff with either a half or full day session on Beginning, Intermediate, and Advanced Double Bass techniques. Beginning Bass Techniques stresses fundamentals of establishing beginners, creating a good sound, left hand shaping, instrument and bow holds, elementary shifting, and much more. Intermediate and Advanced Bass Techniques addresses advanced shifting techniques, bow strokes, tone stabilization, advanced theoretical approaches to scale techniques, thumb position, and much more. All-State teaching strategies are also discussed. Specific sessions can be tailored to meet the needs of your Fine Arts staff. Please call or email for availability, scheduling, and pricing.
Solo & Ensemble Judging
Who better to judge your contests than a kid-centered bass instructor? I have judged contests for many districts, including Fort Bend, Spring Branch, and Klein. Please call or email for availability, scheduling, and pricing.
I can provide any kind of performing group to meet any of your musical needs for weddings, receptions, parties, corporate events or any special event. Please call or email for availability, scheduling, and pricing.
