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.

Private Upright Bass Teacher

Students can expect a teacher that addresses every single aspect of learning orchestral upright bass: from honing bow technique, to left-hand formation and fingering choices, to reading musical notation, interpreting music and learning rhythm.

My goal is to help students develop a technical foundation on the bass for playing just about any kind of music that they are interested in, and to support students with practicing tips for areas in their playing where they want to improve. My specialty is symphony orchestra training, so I primarily use both the Essential Elements for Strings books and Suzuki Bass School series at the beginning, and then later as students make progress, I begin to introduce standard orchestral repertoire, sonatas, and concertos written for the bass. I have been teaching since August 2016 and so far I have helped students get into All-States, ensembles at the New England Conservatory Preparatory Division and Berklee College of Music, Districts/Regional ...

Darren is great. He has been teaching my daughter the upright bass for over three years (since she started). She has progressed quickly under his guidance and is now the principal bass for her orchestra,. Darren is very encouraging, and yet he also challenges his students to keep improving. Darren has taught my daughter in person at our house, but since March 2020 she has taken virtual lessons. Darren is totally comfortable in this format, so we'll likely stick with the virtual lessons for good. Overall Darren is just a great teacher. I highly recommend him!
V
I have been with Darren for something around 5 ish years and I improved beyond my dreams from when I started. With him I was able to rise orchestra levels, improve my technique drastically and even do districts! (For context I'm a freshman in high school now) Darren is my favorite bass teacher I've had and I am doing all states with him in the fall, hopefully. He's helped me with everything from auditions to grinding on orchestra pieces to starting jazz for the advanced jazz band. If you're looking for a teacher who will cater to your individual needs and listen to you and what you want to learn all the while seriously improving your bass, Darren's the one for you!
Justin
Darren is a fantastic instructor, adept at teaching newcomers and more experienced players alike. There is no aspect of the art of bass playing that he cannot offer assistance in strengthening. For every hurdle I have encountered, he has devised an exercise that helps me get over it. He is particularly skilled at diagnosing the reason why a particular piece, passage, technique, or sound on the instrument is not quite there and then offering the precise advice on how to get it to the next level. I could not recommend him highly enough

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.

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

A couple years ago I combined the upright position of my cello with the strings of my electric bass to pick up the double bass and have been in love with it since! I’ve spent a great deal of time developing comfortable technique and practice habits that I am eager to share with beginner upright bass players. I have experience playing a wide variety of styles, ranging from jazz and bluegrass to rock, pop, and country. Regardless of the style, my lessons typically focus on reinforcing a strong technical foundation (pizzicato and bow) and productive practice routine including, but not limited to, scales and arpeggios, rhythmic training, ear-training and theory, and reading (sheet music and chord charts). I am prepared to work with my students on any bass goals they have, from refining orchestral repertoire to improvising walking bass lines and soloing. In the past I have used Essential Elements 2000 and Rhythmic Training (Rob Starer), as well as several scale and theory resources to help

I have always wanted to play the cello but never had any musical experience. I was hesitant doing online lessons at first but that worry quickly ran away when I had my first online lesson with Jordi. Jordi was so welcoming and it made me excited for the next lesson to come! He is extremely patient and encouraging whenever I would mess up or get a bit nervous playing which helps my anxiety. I always learn something new from him every time we meet and he creates a clear plan on what to work on for my next lesson. He is an understanding teacher and tailors to your experience level and the kind of music genre you like to play. He is also very flexible with his schedule. I'm a senior in high school so I have many things on my plate but he's willing to make time fit mine and his schedule. I'm very thankful to have him as my cello teacher. If you're researching and contemplating which teacher you should choose, picking Jordi is the smartest choice! :)

My daughter loves her cello lessons and has made amazing progress. Jordi is both professional and relaxed which is a great combination.
Leslie
Jordi was a Godsend when the pandemic hit. I had a life long desire to make music as well as listen and learn how to relax. He has far surpassed any of my expectations of an instructor. He is phenomenal. He teaches, he listens to my questions; He even anticipates my questions. His smile immediately says “I understand where I can help.” I am always eager to meet with him every week.

"Can't say enough great things about Daniel. We are very experienced when it comes to music teachers, my daughter (9) has been learning Suzuki violin for 5 years with multiple teachers and last year she decided to also start taking Bass. Her lessons are both challenging yet inspiring at the same time- a combination that is hard to do. Daniel listens to the student and has a natural knack for knowing how to change up the lesson when needed while still focusing on building a solid foundation. He understands that playing an instrument also needs a growing appreciation for music/songs that the instrument can play and he continues to grow her repertoire of song styles far beyond the classical that she is used to. Most importantly she looks forward to her lessons and loves playing to songs she is learning."
