Anthony Vitti - Professor - Berklee College of Music
DaaDoo Music was formed in 1995. I did this because I felt there was a need to provide bass players with materials that were challenging, for even the best players.The books are written by me, Anthony Vitti. I attended Berklee College of Music from 1982-1986. I graduated with honors and went on to work towards my Masters degree in jazz performance at the University of Lowell. I have had the opportunity to work with a very wide variety of artists such as, Sammy Davis Jr., Liberace,Rita Moreno, Bobby Vinton, George Burns, Nell Carter, Robert Klein, Jerry Lewis, The Platters, The Drifters, The Temptations and many more. Performances include Gregg Bissonett, Steve Smith (Journey), Toy Caldwell, Felix Cavalier, Carmine Apece (Rod Stewart),Blues Saracen, Boston, John Scofield, Gary Nicholson and many others. I wanted to publish challenging material for advanced bass players. I know it’s tough for me to find challenging materials. Many players write me with the same experience. I wanted to write books that I would go back to over and over again to keep my chops up. The majority of books available are for inexperienced players who are new to the instrument. Although they are very useful. Where do you go from there? I like to think that I give the new player something to shoot for. My books are challenging, but not out of reach for those of you new to the instrument. You will find that my books are right to the point. I mean, a lot of content and not a lot of wasted space. I have taught thousands of students at Berklee College of Music, and I develop all my material for my students and myself, before I put it in the books. That is why I know the material is challenging and useful in building “real” skills on the instrument.
I started my own company “DaaDoo Music” so I could control the content of my books and publish materials that I actually use in classes and lessons at Berklee College of Music. In the end, it’s all about the music and helping players find a direction, and this way I have total control over the content. That is why you will never find material like this anywhere else. You will find that I do not have a lot of pictures or unnecessary writing. When you buy my books, you get two things. Content and a lot of stuff to practice. If you purchase my books, I want to thank you, because you are directly supporting the artist and people involved with publishing the books. Thank you!
