Music comes from the heart, so in my method fun is paramount. Because, if you enjoy what you do, your learning progress can accelerate up to 200%. Via the intensive personalized support you achieve comprehensive theoretical and practical knowledge all around the bass and beyond. The ultimate goal though, is to make you a better learner and a teacher to yourself. I want you to become independent from your mentors (including myself).
