Private Upright Bass Teacher

My name is Jerry. I LOVE music and passing my knowledge on to others. I have played many different instruments in many different kinds of bands. It all one major thing in common, it was FUN! If you are not having fun while learning an instrument you won't want to learn. Lessons can be fun AND educational at the same time. I have had many parents tell me I'm one of the best teachers they have ever seen. (A couple of them were public school teachers themselves). I truly want my students to succeed and I will do everything in my power to help them accomplish that!

Went way above and beyond to work with my son and help him with the things that he struggled with. We are very pleased and thankful to Mr. Jerry.
Michelle
Extremely unprofessional to abruptly cancel scheduled/paid lessons without the courtesy of a message or any notice because this instructor was unhappy with a 12-year-old child's progress. Very surprised by and disappointed in the manner in which he handled this situation, certainly could have been handled with more respect and maturity.

Jeff brent is an amazing Musician and teacher as well as a man who cares about his students, His systematic approach enables the student to go as far as they want! He worked with my daughter who played violin and piano with Jeff. Eventually she was writing music and was second chair violin at RCC Community College. Her Piano was amazing as well. She also helped other students in high school and college. She loves music like her mentor Mr. Brent. I have also been a student of Jeff fo about 12 years. At first I knew nothing about music except I loved it and I wanted to share music with Itzel.Now, I play Guitar and I am learning how to play saxophone as well. I am also a teacher at RUSD and I use my music to help my children learn how to learn phonics vocabulary story structure and how to write a song. Music in the class really is a game changer and it really inspires my children to learn vocabulary and language skills. Now, I am a gigging musician and I have played in bands coffee houses restaurants and even the streets. I love all of it. Now I am beginning to write songs and I am looking forward to my next chapter in my Musical Journey. Music is a huge part of my life and it fills me with hope and joy everyday of my life. Thank you Mr. Brent, You are a teachers teacher and I am so blessed to have you in my life. Mr. Brent you are one of the best!

With or without a bow, upright bass students that study with me can learn a variety of styles (classical, jazz, bluegrass, etc.). Lessons include focus on intonation, dexterity, and rhythmic independence with special attention to having a comfortable approach to the instrument. Students will always have tangible representations of their work through recordings and personalized musical guides.

My son has been taking lessons with Mr. Brown for 2 years. We started off in-home but switched to online at the onset of the pandemic. Mr. Brown is always friendly fun and professional. My son started bass in school but did not enjoy the classroom lessons. My son has some learning and focus challenges. Mr. Brown is very patient, encouraging, and kind with him and he works hard to keep my son engaged. My son made significant strides. I highly recommend Mr. Brown as an instructor.

Private Upright Bass Teacher

As a professional upright bass player for the past eight or so years, I have toured both domestically and internationally. Drawing from these years of experience, I can help you with any thing from the basics to what to know for a professional gig. I can teach classical technique, Jazz soloing/walking, how to get good sound/intonation, and give help for those trying to bridge the gap into the professional realm.

About Christopher

In my many years of teaching and being taught I have realized that the best teachers are those who really focus on the needs of the student and help them realize their passion for playing music. This usually involves a lesson plan which combines both technical aspects and working on songs, so that

I've taken bass lessons from Chris for about a year. He's a very skilled musician and is also very good at communicating in a way that makes concepts easier to understand. He has a laid back personality that makes lessons enjoyable but he still demands effort. Overall, I would recommend taking lessons from Chris
Emily
I have no musical background, but I thought it would be fun to learn the guitar as an adult (I'm 31). A friend recommended that I take lessons from Chris; there's no question that Chris was qualified. Overly qualified! But it's not Chris' talent that makes him an effective, influential teacher. Rather, it's his calm demeanor and clear vision of how best to teach the basics and mechanics.

It's be a blast learning from Chris. Our weekly lesson is always a highlight for me! He's as great as they get.
Katherine
I’ve done both in-home & remote lessons with Chris. Chris is a really great teacher, with a deep knowledge of music theory and technique, but also the ability to adjust that to whatever level you’re coming in at. I was a near complete beginner with a lot of anxiety about playing in front of other people when we started and Chris was able to work through that with me with a lot of humor and kindness. His agenda is to work with his students on songs they are interested in learning, and along the way weave in lessons on how notes and chords work, which I’ve really enjoyed. He also teaches bass guitar to my teenage daughter, who really enjoys her lessons and has improved greatly since they began. I highly recommend Chris.

I was nervous to start and Quentin quickly put me at ease as a student. I am an adult learner who can read music and has basic understanding of piano and wanted to move to the next level. He asked the right questions and shaped lessons and practice time which have proven extremely helpful. I look forward to more lessons and can easily recommend his lessons.
Andi
Quentin was very knowledgeable, flexible and creative. He was the ideal teacher for me as a beginner.

Quentin has an easy going manner that makes my middle school student want to learn from him. My son is working on improving his technique and Quentin was able to assess an appropriate level of instruction.
