First up for New York City is a pair of BMCs at AM Studios in Midtown Manhattan (251 w. 30th Street – 4th Floor). On Sunday, May 5th I’ll be conducting a Bass Mini Clinic in “Odd Time Grooves” at 12 noon. We’ll be covering Compound Meter, 5/4 & 5/8, 7/4 & 7/8 and how to master any odd meter groove through combinations of two and three.
Also on May 5th, but at 2pm I’ll be leading another BMC, this one on “Technique Drills.” It doesn’t matter what your playing level is, this one applies to everyone. We’ll be dealing with any persistent challenges you come up with in your playing, be it speed, precision, perseverance, timing, string-crossing, rhythm…
As usual, the space is limited to four bassists per clinic, so on your mark…get set…GO!
Bass Mini-clinics are based on Patrick Pfeiffer’s Bass Immersion Day Clinics, but in a more intimate setting and with more hands-on interaction. Bass Mini-Clinics are limited to four bass players per class. Everyone is under headphones and with a bass in hand at all times. Individual questions are answered, problems are worked out and playing skills are elevated.
The duration of each Bass Mini-Clinic is 90 minutes and the tuition is $55 (Bass Specialties) to $65 (New York) per person (payable at the time of booking and non-refundable). You need to bring:
– Pen and paper for personal notes
– A desire to maximize your bass playing…that’s it!
Please contact Patrick Pfeiffer at 917-679-3135 to find out more and to sign up.
