I have 25 plus years of solid professional performing experience in orchestra music, opera, chamber music and musical theater; with some experience in blues, folk, jazz, tango and Arabic music.
I teach in a manner that integrates modern double bass technique, with a strong emphasis on ear training (listening skills) and music theory - and I really enjoy helping motivated students prepare for college auditions.
Many of my students have played in Midwest Young Artists, Chicago Youth Symphony and the IMEA Senior Orchestra. Students of mine have been also been accepted at the music schools of the Manhattan School of Music, De Paul University, University of Illinois (Campaign), University of Iowa (Iowa City) and Lawrence University.
