Bass Conservatories

Founder of the Bass Conservatory of Dallas and master teacher, Dr. Gudrun Raschen, has established an innovative and highly successful teaching model of group instruction. Students of all levels work in small groups on technique, bass chamber music, All-State preparation, solo playing, music theory and improvisation. In addition to working with major teachers and guest artists, students learn from each other as well as gain experience mentoring other students.


The Bradetich Foundation is very proud to sponsor these Conservatories, currently in Dallas and Miami, with plans to open more opportunities for young bass players to learn and enjoy the bass throughout the world.
