Basic Teaching Philosophy or Special Music Interests/Specialties

My philosophy for private instruction is to create a comfortable atmosphere where students are free to be creative and uninhibited in expressing themselves. I firmly believe in stressing the fundamentals including: relaxed body positioning, core of sound, scales, and technique.

Most importantly, I believe bass players should be well-rounded musicians, so I ensure that each of my students receives a foundation in orchestral, solo, and chamber music repertoire within a wide variety of musical styles, including classical, jazz, and popular music.

Interests/hobbies outside of music:
Photography and videography. I have always loved telling a story with images and capturing a feeling within a moment. With videography, I get to combine all of my loves or music, film, and video into one art form, and tell someone's story while conveying their emotions and passions.

A few of my favorite things are:
Movies, video games and video game music, and recording

Why Study Music:
I studied music, at first, for myself and to learn the craft. Now, I continue to study and perform music in order to connect with people and places.

"My teaching philosophy greatly pulls from my martial arts background. Everything from bass stance to bow technique and especially the breathing all relate back to my training."
