Greetings to bassists everywhere!

This summer intensive is designed to help you find ways to perform with more ease, power and expression.  Working with world-class mentors in a supportive environment, you will discover new techniques and ideas through master classes, one-on-one learning in private lessons, mock auditions and numerous opportunities to perform and perfect your art.

You will expand your musical horizons by crossing over genres to enhance your primary focus in your bass playing through hands on learning of Baroque Performance, Jazz or Classical Techniques and use Yoga and other disciplines to learn to use body awareness to take your playing to the next level.
