Personal Description:

Hi! My name is Sam and I'm a professional bass guitarist and double bassist based in Leeds. Since graduating from Leeds College of Music in 2014 I have been a highly active member of the city's thriving music scene. I frequently tour the UK and have also performed internationally in France, Germany, Holland, Belgium and Ireland.

Tutoring Experience:

I have been teaching bass privately for over 5 years. I have worked as an assistant tutor on the Falmouth Jazz Summer School and have also led workshops in jazz, folk and popular music with various ensembles.

Tutoring Approach:

I always try to relate what is covered in lessons to real life performance situations and will aim to explain how lesson topics can be applied in a range of circumstances. I am happy to guide students through grade exams but also happy to focus on particular aspects a student may want to work on outside of these syllabuses. I am most familiar with the Rockschool syllabus for electric bass and also an experienced double bass player. I specialise in jazz, in particular the construction of bass lines and solos over chord changes. I am also comfortable teaching essential core fundamental skills such as technique, scale/fingerboard knowledge, harmonic knowledge, sight reading, ear training, time-feel, recommended listening, practice tips and composition. I am able to provide students with hand outs and will be able to design and recommend exercises to students to help practice topics covered in lessons. I also have experience teaching students within an ensemble setting, and would be comfortable leading a workshop/rehearsal for an ensemble.
