    Teaching Credentials:
    I've been playing since the late 70s and play and compose, mostly jazz, in Seattle.
    I've not been open to teaching in the past, but I'm going to crack that door open a little and see if anyone comes through it.

    There are amazing teachers out there and if you think you would like to study with one, then do. I have and can't recommend it highly enough.

    But, if you're a BG player wanting to approach DB, it's harder than you think. I've been through it and I can help. I also play jazz and can help people trying to understand how to move from whatever music they currently play into jazz.

    I have a good working knowledge of theory, up to a certain point. There are people who know more, but more isn't always better. A lot of people get bogged down in this and I can help. The goal is to play, maybe compose, not to be an academic.

    If that stokes anything in you, reach out. I'll always be honest about what I can and can't do to help and refer you out if that's the right thing to do.
