Exceptions to this rule will be made on a case-by-case basis. Please contact me if you have a hardship that prevents you from auditioning in person.

If you are considering majoring in double bass at the University of Iowa, you may want to consider a trial lesson. I provide a free private lesson that enables students to get a sense of my teaching style. If you are too far and would like a lesson through Zoom, please contact me to set up a time.
