About John Tuck

I have a Masters of Music in Double Bass Performance from Northwestern University and my emphasis is on classical music. Upon request, rudiments of jazz or popular music (incluidng bass guitar) may be taught in conjunction with classical double bass (upright).

My musical background includes orchestral music, musical theater, opera, pop/rock, jazz, blues, tango and Arabic music.

I am currently on the faculty of the Music Institute of Chicago and also maintain a private studio in Evanston. Previous students have been accepted by DePaul University School of Music, Manhattan School of Music, University of Iowa School of Music, University of Illinois School of Music and Lawrence University Conservatory of Music.

Question and answer

Q. Describe the most common types of jobs you do for your clients.

A. I am primarily a classical double bassist who has been a member of three symphony orchestras in the Chicago metropolitan area for over 20 years - and I have been performing in a summer opera music festival for the past 15 years. I am active performing Baroque and contemporary chamber music - and contract musicians for conventions and corporate events.

Q. Why does your work stand out from others who do what you do?

A. My emphasis is first and foremost on developing skills and musical awareness that will help facilitate ones enjoyment and appreciation of music. But if students are genuinely serious about the study of music and intend to intend to enter a college or university as a music major, as my track record shows, I do know what needs to be done to prepare the student.
