First ESA Double Bass Instructor appointed

By ESA Administrator

22nd February 2021

Antonello Peretto was appointed ESA Double Bass Instructor today  - an important day for the development of Double Bass in the ESA region.

Antonello will be responsible for organising Levels 1, 2 and 3 Double Bass Teacher Training Courses in the region, whilst Virginia Dixon, ESA Teacher Trainer, USA, will offer Level 4 and Level 5 courses.

The first of Antonello's courses is planned for this summer in collaboration with Alessandro Andriani, ESA Violoncello Teacher Trainer, Italy.

Antonello first came across the SUZUKI™ Method observing Antonio Mosca's Violoncello lessons in Italy.  Inspired by the possibility to combine his two great passions -  Double Bass and teaching children - he trained with Virginia Dixon, SAA Double Bass Teacher Trainer in the USA.   When Double Bass courses became available in Denmark, Antonello continued his training under the ESA Teacher Training system.

Double Bass Teacher Training Courses have not been available in the ESA region for some time and this appointment as Instructor offers teachers renewed hope and motivation to continue their training and contribute to the growth of Double Bass throughout Europe.
