Hey The name is Ray,

I am a bass player at heart, bass is my main passion and favorite instrument to play. I started playing about 12 years ago and have learned so much. Since then I have picked up guitar, ukulele, and most recently drums. Music is my life, I constantly think about it and try to improve whenever I can. I am currently in a band and my band mates and I are all working hard on recording and producing our first album.
I would love to share my skills with anyone willing to learn. I am very hands on so there will be a lot of playing together. I can help bass players from beginner to intermediate lessons, and beginner lessons in guitar and ukulele. look forward to meeting new musicians.

Ray is fun and flexible to learn with. He has a love of music in general and the bass in particular that lets him explore your musical journey with you. In between lessons he sends resources... He is clearly thinking of ways to teach even when you are not there.

It has been a great Sunday ritual thus far.

Thanks Ray,

Ray rocks! He is extremely diverse in musical taste and has a love for music like no other. When he first played the bass as a demo for me, I got even more excited to learn and pick up a new skill. As a teacher he is kind and works at your pace to help you with the needs you are looking for, whether it's the technique or style, he can help you through the lesson as well as any questions accordingly. He comes to my house which is great because of the convenience and he is always polite and has great respect for my little studio. Thanks again Ray I'll see you next weekend!

Ray is one of the best bass players I have ever known! I've watched him play countless times for three years with multiple bands and he is always creative and patient. He is a RAY of sunshine and a true musician who is eager to share his knowledge. Take his lessons!!
