AUDITIONING @ UI

**All Auditions for Fall 2021 Admission will be conducted Virtually**

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.
