I'm a professional bass player in Austin Texas, the Live Music Capital of the World. At one time or another I've played just about every style of music, and I have more than a decade of teaching experience. I love 'opening doors' for students, helping them understand how music works and how they can sound better than ever. 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. Once I've gotten to know you and your musical goals and preferences, I'll point you towards the knowledge you need, and show you how that knowledge works in the music you like.
*** Studio Equipment ***
Music room: recording equipment, bass, amp, chairs, music stands, additional seating for parents.
*** Travel Equipment ***
I bring my bass, iPod, tuner, drum machine,manuscript paper,etc. The student needs to provide adequate space and amplification.

I write all the charts for Austin Texas's Trio Verde, and when the band plays live I play bass.
