JUST STARTING BASS AND WANT TO JAM WITH YOUR FRIENDS AS SOON AS POSSIBLE?
KNOW THE BASICS AND KNOW SOME SONGS, BUT FRUSTRATED BECAUSE YOU DON'T FEEL LIKE YOU ARE PLAYING MUSIC?
HAVE YOU BEEN PLAYING FOR A WHILE BUT FEEL STUCK AND ARE ARE READY TO TAKE IT TO THE NEXT LEVEL?
Then I'm your guy! My name is Zach. For me, the student comes first. My lessons are completely subjective, molding what we discuss to what you need/want! Bass is an exciting and important instrument. I've been teaching and playing bass professionally for over 10 years. I've been fortunate to study with many great players (including Victor Wooten, Chuck Rainey, and more). I've played all around the country at festivals and venues. I'm comfortable teaching all skill levels, ages, and styles. My focus is on improvisation and groove based music (funk, jazz, fusion, etc). I'm also comfortable with all techniques and topics of music theory. Everyone has something to offer musically, so let's start jamming!
I taught private bass instruction for over a decade in the Kansas City area before moving to Portland.
