Henri Gross

Double bass, Electric Bass, Instructor

I have been playing the double bass since I was 11, and have studied with some of the most diverse teachers the instrument can offer, from Jazz to Classical, Rock, and everything in between.  You need me in the pocket?  I’ll be there.


As a bass player, I need to be flexible and ready for anything.  That’s why my studies have not only taken me into different genres, but different countries.  I have toured in South America, competed in Italy, and performed all over the United States.  If you’re looking for an interesting soloist, I’m you’re guy.  Need me to hold down a bass section for Mahler 2?  I’ll be there.  Want to play some standards?  Let’s read some charts!
