"Nate has so much going for him: Intimacy with an array of classical, folk, jazz and pop music, the ability to propel any groove with chops and subtlety, a sweet bow sound that can vocalize any melody, fiercely great intonation, and, most importantly, a musical intelligence and intuition that operates with a constant smile.”

- Eugene Friesen, GRAMMY award-winning cellist and composer (Paul Winter Consort, Trio Globo)

"Finding Nate's Patreon page and then investing in monthly lessons has been the best thing I could have done for my practice. Nate's teaching is the perfect combination of making things accessible, while also nudging you just beyond your comfort level/current skill level. The scaffolding of resources he's provided has allowed me to tackle music I would have thought was well beyond my grasp. I also appreciate knowing that I can reach out with questions as needed, and can always expect a knowledgeable and enthusiastic response!" - Molly, bass student & patron

"It doesn't get any better than Nate! He's everything you want in a bass teacher. My son is 12 and has LOVED taking online lessons from Nate and is showing pure joy when he plays. Nate cuts right to the chase and gets you playing. He is very efficient with your time. Quote from my son: "Nate is fun, and funny." HIGHLY recommend!" Anne, parent

"For nearly 30 years I had played guitar with the hope that songs would simply "happen". They didn't. Nate demystified the songwriting process. He has helped me to create songs from scratch (just a simple melody recorded on an iPhone) or to build on ideas that were riffs. Moreover, he focuses on all aspects of songwriting: lyrical content, melody, harmony and recording/production. So, I have, at the end of our work, an actual recorded song that I can share with friends or keep in the vault." - Sam, songwriting student

"Nate is an exceptional bass teacher! He meets me where I'm at musically and is extremely patient. He breaks down the concepts and is able to work with me to master them, and allows me to guide the lesson with areas I'd like to work on. And he doesn't let me off the hook ---- he makes sure I get it before moving on. He has listened to recordings I've made in a jam and given me valuable feedback, which is so helpful! I definitely recommend Nate as a teacher to get you to the next level." - Kathy, bass student

"The perfect combination of fun and education!" - Stephen, bass student
