    Teaching Credentials:
    30+ years of experience on electric 4 string in almost any genre. 5 years experience music retail, experience with many different brands of gear; basses, amps, effects, etc.
    I use electric bass, effects and looping to create lush tapestries for arrangements of popular songs, as well as improvisations on my own compositions. I like to slappa da bass and play fretless a little sharp. I also have begun taking students.
    My approach to lessons is more of a coaching style than formal lesson format. I focus on goal oriented instruction and customizing exercises based on the level player the student is and what their goals are, as opposed to a homogenized one size fits all style of teaching. Lesson topics can vary greatly from student to student so I compartmentalize subjects into larger categories such as, Fretboard Basics, Picking Techniques, Music Theory, Gear, Sound Design, Recording and a vast array of other topics that 30+ years of professional gigging will give you perspective on.

    Let me share some of that perspective with you.


    In a hurricane of Cmaj, the bass whispers Amin7, and it is so.
    A $10,000 bass doesn't make you a $10,000 player.
    Angels play harps, The Devil Plays Bass.
    Maybe you just needed a fresh set of Roto's
