Formerly the faculty bass teacher at the University of Maine @ Augusta and Maine Jazz Camp, Chris has over 15 years of experience teaching private students, master classes and ensembles.

Lessons are available for upright and electric basses, focusing on concepts such as developing a good sound, building solid technique with the bow, learning and internalizing music, using the piano to develop a better undertanding of harmony. All ages are welcome, from beginning to advanced students.
