"We'll definitely have you back at a future BBC. You are an awesome educator!" - Gerald Veasley

About My Students

Through the years, my students have ranged from age 12 to 62. They have diverse careers from students to business owners, from players who play in church on Sunday to those playing in arena rock shows. They have been selected to All State Jazz Band, received Music Scholarships to college and have played with some of the top names in the music business (and some just have a great deal of fun)

About Me

Michael Dimin “wrote the book” on the art of solo bass, through his groundbreaking books, “The Art of Solo Bass” and "The Chordal Approach" and as a lesson columnist for Bass Guitar Magazine (UK), Bassics, Bass Frontiers Magazines and as a guest columnist for Bass Player Magazine. Mike has taught clinics and master classes at Gerald Veasley’s Bass Boot Camp, The Bass Collective, the National Summer Guitar Workshop, The Detroit Bass Fest, the San Fransisco Bass Bash, Canadian Rockies Bass Bash and many more. Mike is a clinician for Zon Guitars, EA Amps, Boomerang Music and Thomastick Infeld Strings. “Mike’s taken his revolutionary approach, unparalleled technique and mastery of the instrument and combined it with a sense of musicianship and lyricism that transcends the site of a solo bassist on stage.” Greg Haymes formerly of the Albany Times Union stated, “Dimin is in full command of an instrument that gets the spotlight all too rarely.”


Lessons are available in person at my studio in Burnt Hills, NY or at my home in Averill Park, NY. Lessons are also available, on a very limited basis at your home or studio (of course you'll need to also pay travel expenses)

If you cannot make it in person, lessons are also available online via Skype or Facetime

I am also available for clinics, masterclasses and workshops. Many bass-centric events like the BassQuake, Detroit Bass Festival, Canadian Rockies Bass Bash, Gerald Veasly's Bass Boot Camp as well as social gatherings like regional Talkbass Get Togethers have had me in for clinics or residencies.

Many times clincis, workshops and masterclasses can be sponsored, in part or in full, and of little or no charge to the venue.

Rates for all lessons are $60.00 per hour. Half hour lessons are available. Lessons at your home are $60.00 per hour PLUS travel.
