    Teaching Credentials:
    Have tried teaching and totally suck at it.
    Been playing bass since age 17 in a Zeppelin cover band. Previously played regionally around the Northeast for many years, often >120 gigs a year, all kinds of venues, large and small, clubs, festivals, corporate, weddings, you name it. Roots rock, blues, Top-40, show bands... A number of recording credits. Did a career in the software industry including senior management, during which there was little time for music. Relocated to South Carolina. Recently retired and back into music.
