Dave DeMarco

Bass Lessons with a REAL bassist (not a guitarist)
Teaching Philosophy

I ask lots of questions up front to gain a solid understanding of the student's current skill level and then I tailor the lesson plan around each student's unique goals. We set attainable milestones so that students can measure their progress while gaining perspective on the big picture. I STRONGLY believe that students who study bass with someone who is not a full-time bassist are doing themselves a disservice.

Experience

Bassist with American prog band Crack The Sky; session bassist for film/TV; credits include ESPN, MTV's Punk'd, E! True Hollywood Story and numerous feature film trailers. I'm a full-time musician playing 200+ shows/year and I've been teaching privately since 1996. My students have gone on to Berklee, Eastman, Oberlin and U of Miami.

“Dave is a pleasure to learn from. Today was my first lesson and I can already tell that I'm going to learn a lot from him. He is very knowledgeable and gets his point across in a way that is easy to understand.”
