Lessons on 4,5 and 6 string bass playing and will be built around each students goals and current skill level and will adapt and grow with the student.

All lessons will cover topics such as:

  • Physical techniques
  • Tonal awareness of pitch and timbre,
  • Communication, both musically and working with others.

As well as provide a fairly comprehensive musical theory background. (including basic keyboard knowledge)

To beat the poor adage of “those who can’t do, teach” I’m proud to say I’m not just an instructor but a
living-breathing-doing-it-with-a-passion performer working 3-4 nights a week all over the state.

Currently performing with one of the areas best and hardest working blues/soul/rock trios River Bottom Funk. And very blessed with continuing opportunities to fill in with with several of the areas best entertainers and groups.

I’m certain I can give you the knowledge, confidence and perspective to make your musical path a rewarding and fulfilling aspect of your life!
