Lauren Pierce

Based in Melbourne Australia, Lauren is a professional double bassist and educator. Her hugely popular YouTube channel features virtuosic performances of double bass solo repertoire. Lauren has studied with many notable bassists such as Craig Butterfield and Jeff Bradetich and is renowned teacher in her own right.

In 2015 Lauren joined the Discover Double Bass team as our classical double bass teacher. She has released numerous lessons and two step-by-step courses ‘Double Bass Bowing Technique’ & 'Double Bass Thumb Position'.

She is also a co-presenter of our weekly show, “Ask Geoff & Lauren”, in which we answer your questions about the double bass.

She is among the very few bass players in her generation who is using her brilliant virtuosity and mature musicianship to bring out the most subtle and refined emotions in any musical work performed on bass.
