Harrison G.

Private tutor in Boston, MA

Education

I am a professional musician; my life is entirely about playing music, writing music, and teaching music. While I am primarily a classically trained string bass player, I also play and teach electric bass, piano, and violin. In the past I have toured across Europe, conducted various orchestras, and received many performance-based awards. Currently, I am studying at The Boston Conservatory (which will soon be merging with the Berklee School of Music).

Hobbies

I'm a great admirer of the arts and I love philosophical dialog. Teaching and learning are of my two most relevant interests. My ideology is that we should always try to be the best that we can be, and never settle for anything less. I believe that if you look for the beauty in life, happiness will find you. ~ Carpe Diem ~
