My students study a standard format of scales, arpeggios, intervals, etudes, bowing technique, etc., to develop ability on the bass. Added to that is a study of the solo repertoire and, of equal if not primary importance, the orchestral repertoire. Weekly lessons and a weekly orchestral repertoire class with an end-of-semester mock audition are the semester’s material. Through the process, ultimately, a student graduates as a capable, musically experienced and, above all, self-reliant musician.
