Philosophy

“Patience gives you the power to practice.” I use traditional & contemporary teaching methods for Upright & Electric Bass. If someone has obtained proper technique, they can make a journey to different styles in music.

“Music Strengths the mind, spirits & improve communities. It’s fundamental for the well being of youth as well as adults.”
