Private bass lessons (jazz and improvised music)

Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
I give private lessons in jazz bass - double bass as a former professional bassist. For twenty years I accompanied different groups around the world (Louisiana Red, Champion Jack Dupree, John Thomas, Francisco Zumaque, Lou Blackburn,...)

Today I specialize in teaching music, especially jazz, blues and improvised music. I use the natural learning method of music which involves listening and playing, then little by little we integrate the reading of the notes according to the rhythm of each one.

With this method, students are able to play from the first lesson. The last quarter of an hour of the course is devoted to putting it into practice by playing together (piano, double bass, drums).

Classes take place in our private room at Porte d'Orléans.

We also offer ensemble lessons for students who wish, as well as participation in our choir.

Looking forward to playing with you,

Claudius

About Me

Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
Claude, pianist - bassist - author - composer - performer - arranger - producer

A career bassist, Claude has accompanied various bands around the world: Louisiana Red, Champion Jack Dupree, John Thomas, Francisco Zumaque, Lou Blackburn, Nina Simone...

His meeting with Art Blakey and Dorothy Donegan encouraged him to reconnect with his first instrumental love: the piano.

He studied in several conservatories, then at the Bill Evans Piano Academy where he studied Harmony with Bernard Maury while accompanying him on the double bass during his masterclasses.

Today, Claude is perfected at the jazz piano, he goes to meet the culture of world music to offer you his deep, intense, voluptuous compositions, and draws his rhythmic strength from his African origins.
Arranger and studio musician, he composes lyrics, writes arrangements on bass and keyboard, and performs them in jazz, rap and pop groups alike.
