I've played bass in a number of bands throughout the years and can help players of all skill levels develop and refine their musicianship on the instrument. We will work from various books to develop and refine the technical and theoretical skills unique to whatever musical styles you wish to learn!
I have been playing music since I was about 13 years old. I initially started out on guitar but I quickly picked up mandolin, banjo, and ukulele thanks to the great theoretical tools I'd learned from my first teacher! I started studying alto saxophone around the same time I picked up guitar and began extensively studying violin a few years later. I quickly began writing songs and at 15, I recorded my first album of original material with production help from Grammy award winning producer/guitarist Joe Reyes. Joe and I would go on to make four other records together and I would wind up doing string arrangements for one of his albums as well. While still in high school, I began playing with a number of bands in my hometown of San Antonio, Texas as well as a few groups in Austin, ...
I work with beginning, intermediate, and advanced bass players, helping them to understand how music works, how to get the sounds they want from the bass guitar, and how all of it relates to music they like.
I'm a professional bass player in Austin Texas, the Live Music Capital of the World.

I graduated from B.I.T. in Los Angeles and I have thousands of hours of teaching, gigging, and recording experience. I'll share that experience with you! *** Lesson Details *** I like to use real music to show how technical concepts work.

In addition to playing all around Austin, I have traveled to places like Seattle, Nashville, and Waikiki to play shows, record, and interview with with my band on live radio. Songs from our album were played on Austin's own KGSR. We also played on Fox 7's morning show, Good Day Austin. I enjoy playing and teaching a variety of instruments and a variety of genres. To me, understanding music is key to unlocking your full potential for artistic expression. When I teach, I incorporate both what I learned in school and on stage. *** Lesson Details *** My goal is not to teach my students how to play a few cool songs on their ...
