DKSM Double Bass Teacher
Andrew Goodlett has been a guest teacher at Cadenza Summer Music Week for the past two years. He is very excited to extend his role in the Douglas Kuhl School of Music community by teaching private bass lessons this upcoming year.
Mr. Goodlett has been Assistant Principal Double Bass of the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra since the fall of 2013. He received his Bachelor’s of Music from Michigan State University studying with Jack Budrow, and attended Northwestern University as a masters student studying with Peter Lloyd. Andrew started the bass as a 17 year old, studying with his father Robert Goodlett. He has played with many orchestras across North America including the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra, Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra, and the Tafelmusik Baroque Orchestra and Chorus. Andrew has many non-classical musical interests, has played professionally in a wide variety of performances, and holds a degree in jazz bass.
Andrew’s teaching roles have included leading sectionals for the Winnipeg Youth Symphony Orchestra, the New World Youth Orchestra in Indianapolis, several high schools in the Indianapolis area, as well as the Bassitoba workshop in Winnipeg. Andrew has taught at his father’s award winning Quattro String Academy in Carmel, Indiana where his father has over thirty double bass students. Much of Andrew’s teaching philosophy stems from his relationship with his father, and is based on setting up individual students for success by addressing their specific physical needs with the instrument, as well as having a well-rounded musical education.
