Piano, Bass, and Guitar Lessons
Being the son of two music teachers translated into my life joyfully revolving around music. It also meant exposure to a wide range of music ranging from classical to jazz, rock to hip hop, and so on. My musical journey began at the age of 7, when I finally got the chance to jump on my family’s coveted upright piano. As I got older, I took up cello, trombone, guitar, and a host of other instruments before settling on bass as my main thing. My first professional gig on bass came at age 13 and I never looked back. After high school, I studied Composition and Theory at Kansas State University and then went to Florida State University to get my Masters in Jazz Studies. Alongside maintaining a private studio on multiple instruments, I served on staff at both universities. This gave me the chance to teach a wide range of classroom subjects. As a performer, I’ve kept busy gigging with many notable area artists, as well as multiple theatre tours for Big League Productions, NYC. I firmly believe music is the healthiest of all disciplines for any mind, and I’m fired up about helping anyone learn more about it!
