Personal Statement

Bass is all about groove. I aim to teach people so that they are an integral part of the music they're playing. This is achieved by knowing music and having confidence. All my lessons include a song to work through, that ties in with a theory lesson that usually considers scales, rythm studies, sight reading and music analysis plus more.
