I teach orchestral Double Bass privately in my own home, taking pride in being a very good first teacher. In my opinion this is a most important role. I left the Sydney symphony Orchestra in 2002 after 32 years and have taught continuously since 1970. I am experienced in preparing students for the NSW HSC, for AMEB examinations and for Tertiary study. Many of my students have been adults and I strongly suggest they join amateur orchestras when ready.
