Have you always wanted to play on the biggest and lowest string instrument there is, and have you always wanted to play in orchestras and ensembles together with other musicians? Then the double bass is the instrument for you!
DOUBLE BASS STUDIO UTRECHT offers classical double bass lessons by a professional and certifide double bassist, Robin de Zeeuw. His lessons are focussed on getting the student as quickly as possible on a good level to start playing with other people, because playing together is what it is all about! He's educated as a classical double bass player at the Conservatory of Utrecht (Bachelor) and did his master at the Conservatory of Amsterdam, where he specialized in Early Music (violone and viola da gamba). He is, next to teaching double bass, also active as an orchestra and ensemble musician, mainly specialized in Early Music.
The lessons will take in a studio in the center of Utrecht, in an old factory building at the Gruttersdijk 12. The former factory is nowadays being used by various music teachers and other creative freelancers.

When you start your lessons, all you need is a bass and a bow (preferably a German or underhand bow). You can contact me for places to rent or buy a bass, depending on your budget.
In the lesson it's advisable to bring a notebook to make lesson notes, and of course the sheet music you are working on!
