About this pro

I absolutely love teaching... nothing brings me more pleasure than to see the progress of my students. I like to start someone off learning solos and standard bass repertoire while also reinforcing their playing with some great technique, so they can get those flashy chops! no matter what level they’re  at! Especially if they have auditions coming up on their radar.. I will help as much as I can so that we can succeed. I have been teaching for 10 years and I have a Bachelor and Masters in Music Performance from Temple University. I am also continuing higher education currently at the McDuffie String Center in pursuit of an Artist Diploma. I was born in Mexico so I am also fluent in Spanish. I am also currently a soloist hired by Groupmuse and I sub with the Vox Amadeus Chamber Orchestra. I also work as the Walnut Street Theatre substitute bass, Lancaster Symphony substitute bass, and Reading Symphony substitute bass. I have also taught at Temple university’s  String Project program and CMSP for quite some Years. Please call or text my phone whenever because I am 100% committed. I will also always be demonstrating with my own instrument so a student can see and also hear how to achieve the sound they desire.

    Expertise and encouragement as it relates to audition prep.

  • Mark Lawrence

    Initially I was skeptical of taking lessons via zoom. But within my first lesson with David, that skepticism disappeared. I have never had a teacher as attentive, knowledgeable, and enthusiastic as David. And I, being an adult student, have experienced that not all teachers have the desire nor patients to work with older students; fortunately David doesn’t have those issues and it’s obvious David has the ability to instruct all ages. As he told me during a phone call, prior to my first lesson … “I love to teach”, and he means it. My personal enthusiasm and practice has increased which is equating to musical growth. It’s a joy and honor to be studying with him.

  • Mark Lawrence

    I’ve never had a more knowledgeable, attentive, and supportive teacher. To me, a sign of a good teacher is someone who teaches you to teach yourself … David does that ! It’s a pleasure and I’m honored to be studying with him.

  • Lorenzo Mazzamuto

    David is an incredibly talented musician. A real professional who will be a wonderful source of knowledge for any student of any level. I highly recommend.

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I love starting with 3 Technique books 

1.Strokin 2.Board Walkin 3.Petracci Method

The first two books are very popular and fun and they were both written by the bass teacher currently at Curtis (Hal Robbinson). The second book was created by a famous Italian Soloist named Franco Petracci. These books will give you a great edge over most bassits. I 100% guarantee it.  

I will also start you off with some fun exciting songs and pieces so that you learn music right away.

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I do a solo concert every month with Groupmuse and I really enjoyed playing my recent concert in May because it let's me express my self as an artist  and it lets my students see how to play as well.

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Find someone kind who loves helping through their teaching and most importantly, find a teacher that is not in the business of teaching for passionless reasons. A teacher should be committed to they’re student
