Private Upright Bass Teacher

I am a string specialist. That means I teach and play violin, viola, cello, double bass, guitar, bass guitar, mandolin, ukulele and piano. I earned B.A. earned from the University of Northern Colorado, Greeley Colorado where I was a double major in classical guitar and double bass. In my senior year I was the recipient of the Annual Concerto Contest where I performed the "Concerto in A Major" on double bass with the University orchestra for the spring concert. I have played in both professional and semi-professional orchestras in Colorado and Arizona. I believe that any student will practice more if he or she likes the music they are playing. Periodically I will ask a student to give me a name of a piece of music that they would like to learn how to play. I notate it for them, often simplifying the rhythm and chords in Finale NotePad and give it to them free of charge. I teach students how to play music on their given instrument. Not just how to play the instrument but working on ...

Mr. Victor is teaching both of my kids, one guitar and the other piano. They are beginners, and he is very patient but keeps a good pace. I feel like they are learning a lot. He is a true music teacher and knows his stuff!

You will learn posture using French or German bow. You will be guided by me through method books and use supplemental materials I create for you to advance. You will learn some jazz styles and how the bass works in a rhythm section. You will learn about chord progressions in songs. I've been teaching upright for 5 years. You will learn to make the bass sing as a solo instrument. Most of my students have gone on to play in jazz combos and trios. I want to be your next instructor.

I learned a ton in my first lesson! Mark is very knowledgeable. He was able to break musical concepts down which made it easier to understand. He was very positive, which helped stay positive!

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!

Fun, friendly, super knowledgeable. All around great teacher!

Igor
Steve started tutoring our child on the upright bass when our kid was 9. Our child picked the bass when he joined the school orchestra. We started with in-person lessons, then switched to remote, when the lockdown changed everyone's lives. Steve is a reliable, patient teacher with a great musical ear and advanced skills. His tutoring made a big difference for our kid, who was quickly able to rank high in the school orchestra. Highly recommended.
Jude
Steve is a great teacher. He is knowledgeable and friendly, which provides a great learning environment. My only regret is not taking lessons sooner.
Jason
Steve is a total pro. He knows electric and acoustic bass backwards and forwards. Reading, theory, playing technique... he does it all with grace and charm... and he's a great guy!!! Can't say enough good things about him. He will take you wherever you want your bass journey to go.

"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."

"Excellent Teacher

Along with being incredibly knowledgeable, Alex has the patience and communication skills that really make him excel as a teacher. As a complete beginner to the upright bass (and music in general), I find Alex breaks concepts down in a clear, step-by-step fashion, so that it is not overwhelming. He also gives useful tips on how to be a better learner when tackling challenges, which helps make my personal practice even more effective. Alex is approachable and eager to answer questions even in between classes - I highly recommend him as teacher!"
