Electric Bass Guitar Lessons

Contact me for in-person or online bass guitar lessons at dan@xofwandsmusic.com. Currently, I am based in Brooklyn, NY in the Park Slope area south of Barclay's Center. I offer lessons at 30, 60, and 90 minutes and provide discounts when bundling multiple lessons together. To get started, tell me who the lessons are for, the student's experience level, what you're looking to accomplish, and any specific questions you have for me. Thank you!

My Experience

I have a B.S. in Music from the University at Albany (2014). At U Albany, I was a music theory teaching assistant for 2 years and graduated summa cum laude with an additional degree in Business Administration. I have played bass since I was 9 years old, and have been in bands ranging from school jazz band to rock, orchestra (concert and pit orchestra), ska, metal, funk, marching band, and everything in between.

Since moving from Rockland to Brooklyn in 2016, I have played in live bands around the city to sold out shows. Some stages include Mercury Lounge, Arlene's Grocery, Webster Hall, Music Hall of Williamsburg, and a few boats 🙂 When I am not playing in a group, I take my solo act to the subways to do street performing, though that has been less frequent during the pandemic.

At the end of 2021, I won first place in a national bass solo competition. In addition, I have a YouTube channel with over 150,000 views. These days, I am working on solo material and always looking for the next big challenge.
