Hi everybody! My name is Brian Ellison and I am a bass student here at U Iowa currently in my Senior year. I just transferred here from University of Northern Colorado, where I did my first two years of college. My favorite thing about U Iowa is definitely my teacher. Volkan is an amazing musician as well as teacher. Since he has been appointed as bass professor here, he has organized the Bass ensemble class in which bass players get a chance to see what it is like to work in a chamber setting. For anyone who plays bass and likes to play chamber music, Iowa is a great place to do that.
