As a professional bassist and introvert, I have learned how to create meaningful, fun performances in many styles of music. I believe it is important to study your role in a band to create a better experience for your audience and band members.

About Michele V.

I’m a professional, working bassist with almost 10 years of experience in writing, recording, and live performing. I play and listen to a wide array musical styles including funk, jazz, rock, and pop.

Being mostly self-taught, I have discovered music through a variety of unique methods that might be more beneficial than the traditional music curriculum. With that being said, I have also learned from some amazing teachers. I’ve studied under bass legend, Victor Wooten, at multiple Wooten Woods music camps. Currently, I’m working with award-winning music coach, Phil Circle.

My goal is to help beginning students explore music in a way that leads them to their unique creative voice.

Michele is an inherently talented bass player with a wide knowledge of styles and a real comfort with the fretboard. She is an asset to any young musician who's looking to pursue music, and to any group that hires her. As a teacher, her love of the craft and desire to share make her a natural.
