An Introduction to Double Bass Playing "An Introduction to Double Bass Playing" is the culmination of over 20 years of playing, teaching, studying, and practicing. It addresses many aspects of double bass playing and pedagogy including exercises, examples, and fingerings that teachers have used over the years but never written down. It is a resource for teachers, students, education majors, music minors, parents and anyone interested in the double bass. It is a wonderful companion for studio classes and private lessons. The Double Bassist (now The Strad) says it is "...full of sound and useful advice."
