About Darren

I am a graduate from the Berklee College of Music, where I majored in film scoring with electric bass as my primary instrument. After graduating, I toured for 10 years with big name oldies acts.
I have recently been concentrating on my own solo compositions and compositions for my jazz group, releasing 4 CD's. I have been fortunate to record with musicians who have played with the likes of Miles Davis, Jaco Pastorius, and countless other musicians.

I have been teaching privately and at a music institute for the past 15 years, and feel that I offer my students patience, experience and a thorough knowledge of music theory and harmony.
