Miles Perkin is an experienced and enthusiastic double bass teacher. Focus is on the development of a personal approach to the instrument based on strong fundamentals such as clarity/projection of sound, reading skills, development of efficient and versatile fingering systems, arco and pizzicato technique. Other topics include avoiding tension and injury, concepts in improvisation, the role of the bass (ie. supporting an ensemble), how to expand the role of the bass without compromising your ability to support an ensemble, and discussions related to the infamous question ... "Why are we doing this?"!!!
