Teaching Practice

David enjoys teaching and inspiring students to appreciate this most  noble instrument. He uses both the methods of two classical bass pedagogues,  François Rabbath and the late George Vance, and his own experiential knowledge of the instrument. He particularly enjoys teaching children and delights in helping them develop good intonation and a big sound. He also enjoys teaching adults and offers good ideas on developing taste and awareness of musical form, and rhythmic understanding, as well as applied theory.

He is currently giving online lessons on FaceTime, Zoom and Skype.
