I offer lessons in-person, via SKYPE, Facetime, etc and, for The CORE Method, through my Soundslice site. Through the years, my students have ranged from age 10 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).  Please contact me for rates and availability.

The CORE Method

“The CORE Method”, written especially for my private students, is now available to all players, alone, or as a compendium to the video lessons available at Soundslice.com. It is a revolutionary new tool for learning the 4, 5 and 6 string electric bass. The CORE Method is both easy to learn and comprehensive. Since the CORE Method is a concept, it is not a series of exercises and etudes and, most certainly, not style specific. The CORE Method works for ALL styles of music, whatever your taste may be.

I have been playing, arranging and writing lessons on The Art of Solo Bass since the early 80's. My books “The Art of Solo Bass” (Mel Bay) and "The Chordal Approach” are the definitive works on solo bass. My lessons can be seen as a columnist for Bass Sessions (Mel Bay webzine), Bass Guitar Magazine (UK), Bassics, Bass Frontiers Magazines and as a guest columnist for Bass Player Magazine.  If you truly want to expand your playing and the potential that lies within, this is the place to do it through in-person or on-line lessons (via SKYPE, Facetime, etc).
