Double Bass Master Class with Scott Pingel (MM ’99, PS ’00)

Scott Pingel is an American bassist who is the principal bassist in the San Francisco Symphony. He had been the principal bassist with the Charleston Symphony Orchestra. In 2011 Pingel had the privilege of performing on the acclaimed Karr-Koussevitzky bass for his solo debut with Andrei Gorbatenko and the San Francisco Academy Orchestra. He currently serves as Professor of Music at the University of Michigan School of Music, Theatre & Dance.

Beyond his work with classical music, Pingel has also played jazz. His college bandleader said, “Scott could impress a great jazz bassist like Victor Wooten enough to get him to tutor him over a speaker phone and then turn around and win an orchestral performance fellowship at one of the country‚Äôs most prestigious music schools.” In fact, Pingel had played with Jazz greats Michael Brecker and Geoff Keezer before becoming a strictly classical musician. Pingel was educated at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire where he received his Bachelor of Music degree. He received a Master’s Degree in orchestral performance and a professional studies certificate from the Manhattan School of Music on a full scholarship.
