I have 20 years experience performing and teaching bass in a variety of styles. I have my undergraduate degree in classical bass performance, and am also a freelance bass player in Austin, TX.

I try to cater lessons to the individual student. Lessons will be relaxed, and I always try to find an approach and style that works well for you.

About Phillip S.

Hi!
I'm a professional bassist in Austin, TX, and was gigging and teaching lessons full time here, before COVID. I'm still teaching virtual lessons, and hoping to find a few more students, since most of my income used to come from gigs. And there aren't too many of those around, these days. Drag!

I have a Bachelor's degree in Music Performance from the University of Northern Colorado. That was for classical music, but working in Austin, I've played more Jazz, Country, Singer/songwriter, Rock, and world music. I've been teaching private lessons for 20 years, kids and adults. I really enjoy teaching, especially if the student is engaged and excited about learning, and willing to nerd out with me a little bit. Music and bass have been transformative in my life, and it's very nice to get to share that experience with others. And even nicer when these things that I love can have a positive effect in someone else's life, too.
