Why take lessons with me?

 If you have a passion for learning, a curious mind and a strong work ethic, I can help you reach whatever goals you choose to pursue. Along with reading, technique, theory and other essentials, you will learn many of the methods I have developed over the years that have helped me in my journey as a world-music bassist. These include:

  • Transforming your understanding of rhythm.
  • Expanding your musical palette as a bassist and musician.
  • How to avoid common mistakes and pitfalls most often made when learning Latin music and other rhythmically challenging genres.
  • How to learn any style of music effectively.
  • How to make the most of your practice time and really get the results you’ve always wanted. Learn to love the process!
  • How to efficiently learn even the most difficult music through proper transcription and practicing techniques.
  • How to properly prepare for gigs and performances in order to get called back every time!
  • The choice of in-person lessons, for those in the New York City area, and online lessons via Skype for anyone, regardless of geographic location.
