I have 20 years experience performing and teaching bass in a variety of styles. I have my undergraduate degree in classical bass performance, and am also a freelance bass player in Austin, TX. I try to cater lessons to the individual student. Lessons will be relaxed, and I always try to find an approach and style that works well for you.
About Phillip S.

Greetings! I'm a professional freelance bassist living in Austin. I have my bachelor's degree in music performance from the University of Northern Colorado. For the past 8 years, I've been working full time as a rhythm section mercenary, performing music in Austin and around the US ranging from country, swing, and rock and roll, to jazz, tango, classical, and world music. I have 20 years of experience teaching private lessons. Playing the bass has been my life, and sharing some of that experience through lessons is something I'm grateful to have the opportunity to do, has often been deeply rewarding, and is also something I have come to appreciate as a part of my own musical education and development.
