Each one started out just like you

"Taking private lessons from Earnest has, without a doubt, made me the bass player I am today. From the very beginning, his patience, and passion for teaching has led me all the way to pursuing a degree in music at California Institute of the Arts. His methods and techniques I use in my everyday experience in the music industry. Earnest sets his students up for success at any level his students want to achieve."

Michael Maschmann

"My son began private bass lessons with Earnest in middle school. Not only did he achieve technical competence but also had a good knowledge of theory and composition by the time he applied to college. My son went to Berklee College of Music and is now a performing musician traveling the world. Earnest gave him more that the fundamentals to help him achieve his musical goal. I am an appreciative parent."

Mindy Surdacki

"Earnest's method of instruction helped me become an all around better musician. He understands music theory and how the bass related to and enhances the other instruments are just as important as technical aptitude. Having such a well rounded musical foundation centered around the bass opened the door for me to become a professional musician."
