William T. Macirowski

 

Performer, composer, and educator William T. Macirowski began his career as a professional bassist at the age of 14 as an orchestra member for various musical theater companies in New Jersey. After a few years of being heavily involved in the theater scene, Macirowski began to focus on seriously studying the bass and accepted an invitation to study with local bass legend Joe Macaro. From there, Macirowski went on to the Mason Gross School of the Arts, Rutgers University to study with bass with Mike Richmond, eventually obtaining his Bachelor of Music, Jazz Studies in 2011. Macirowski later went on to receive his Master of Music, Jazz Studies in 2013, also from Rutgers University.

Macirowski is currently the Assistant Director for the Rutgers Youth Jazz Ensemble; an ensemble that is dedicated to preparing young musicians for a career in jazz as well as preparing for college. Macirowski also teaches private lessons for jazz and classical upright bass, all styles of electric bass; fretless or fretted.

 

Etude Book

"Jazz and Classical Etudes for the Electric Bass, Volume 1" is currently for sale for $20. This book explores the full range of the electric bass from the lowest note to the highest, and opens you up to playing passages in unfamiliar areas.

Containing 5 Classical and 5 Jazz Etudes, this book was composed for the 4-string, 20-fret electric bass guitar, allowing playability on any bass regardless of make or model. Each etude demands use of the full length of the fingerboard with the STANDARD notation switching regularly between bass and treble clef and the TAB notation giving you a guide as to the best area of the bass in which to play each passage. This book is intended for bassists who have very good to advanced technique on the instrument. Please be advised that this book was written specifically for the electric bass guitar. While most of the etudes contained in the book will translate well to the upright bass, the book was not written with this in mind so some passages may prove to be very difficult on the upright bass. A great study for either fretless or fretted bass.

Due to the incredible fees that several online market places charge, this book is available directly from the author only in order to insure a low price to the consumer. To place an order, please send an email to willmacbass@gmail.com with the subject "Etude Book". Please allow 24 hours for a response.
