Sam has worked with many of the world's top bass pedagogues, including Eugene Levinson, former New York Philharmonic principal bassist and author of The School of Agility. Sam's classical teaching reflects Levinson's philosophy of helping the student master the bass systematically through progressive technical study and expanding solo repertoire. Sam's jazz teaching style is modeled after that of world-renowned bassist John Clayton, who emphasizes helping each student find his own musical voice through absorbing the jazz vocabulary. Sam teaches upright and electric bass for all styles and skill levels. Contact for scheduling and rates.
