Caroline Emery

 Caroline Emery’s contribution to the double bass world is unique. Having graduated from Music college and subsequently gained a teaching qualification, she became the leading exponent of the Yorke Mini-Bass Project from its inception in 1984. Caroline focuses at present in training talented advanced students and young professionals, whilst also continuing to teach younger students.

In 1991 she was appointed the first ever bass teacher at the Yehudi Menuhin school and also followed on to the Professorial staff at the Royal College of Music. At the age of 26 her first volume “bass is best” was published by Rodney Slatford’s Yorke Edition, this was closely followed by volume two at the age of 28. 

Her students can be found in many orchestras, in Britain and abroad. The Philharmonia, LPO, LSO, BBC Concert, Liverpool Philharminc, The Concertebauw, Malmo Symphony, Norlands Operan, Munich, National Orchestra of Spain. 

Caroline has a special interest in training bassists through the use of chamber music. She is responsible for many new works including  5 bass Concertos, 52 Quartets, 5 Quintets, 5 Octets.  

Recent masterclasses and workshops have taken Caroline to  Singapore, Washington, Canada, Germany, Holland, Sweden, Denmark and Spain. Links with Scandinavia are particularly strong.
