I'll make sure you can play whatever it is you want to play. When I give lessons, I think it's most important that the student come to their own understanding, which usually happens through playing the music they relate to and like most, from there we can delve into the technical aspects of playing the instrument and understanding music theory, exploring why the artists made certain choices and why things work.

I have been playing bass guitar for 15 years, I started at age 12 after having played piano from 7-10. I attended various extra curricular music conservatories, I attended a 4 week music intensive at California State Summer School for the Arts in 2011 and for college, I went to The New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music. Since then I have worked as Musical Director of multiple projects, I have traveled both across America and internationally

About Owen W.

Hi! My name is Owen Williams, I grew up in Los Angeles and have been playing and studying music for about 15 years. I love teaching because I remember what it was like when I had a teacher and how much fun I had in my lessons outside of school. The neighborhood I grew up in had a local conservatory started by Flea (RHCP) called the Silver Lake Conservatory of Music where I took lessons from when I was 10 till I was 16.

I love a lot of different kinds of music, I've gone through many music phases in my life from the Funk and R&B (Sly Stone, Parliament, Curtis Mayfield, Rick James, from Beyonce to Ray Charles and Louis Jordan). I grew up on The Beatles Yellow Submarine (and the other albums too but that movie was first), Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin. I love Hip Hop from Kurtis Blow and Slick Rick in the 80s to artists today like Anderson .Paak and Kendrick Lamar and everything in between.
