I have been teaching privately for ten years in the suburbs of Chicago and have been a teacher at the Birch Creek Summer Festival in Door County for the past 6 years. I also run sectionals for the Depaul University Symphony Bass Section. I primarily teach the upright bass, however I also give lessons on electric bass. I assist students achieve their goals on their instruments whether they are to make jazz band, IMEA District or All State Orchestras, youth orchestras, etc. Most importantly, I want to share with my students how much fun playing the bass can be and how it can make their lives better.
