Bass Bash

bassbash2bassbash1The 6th annual Bass Bash at the University of Michigan School of Music, Theatre & Dance will be held on Saturday, September 24, 2016.

Bass Bash is a clinic for beginning, intermediate and advanced classical and jazz bass students in grades 6-12 and their teachers. Students will play in small ensembles, have a technique class, work on a massed ensemble piece, and give a short informal performance at the end of the day. We will also have a secondary instrument bass class for teachers who are interested in developing their bass skills and learning about double bass pedagogy.

Our featured Bass Bash clinician is Max Dimoff, principal bassist in the Cleveland Orchestra. Max will be teaching the U-M Double Bass Studio this year and we are thrilled to have him at Michigan!  Also on the faculty are several other well-known bassists including Diana Gannett and Robert Hurst, John Kennedy, Larry Hutchinson and Maggie Hasspacher.
