I’m currently working in the NZ industry as a touring/session Bass player and I have been playing Bass guitar for around 10 years now. I am currently studying Commercial Music at Massey University part-time, majoring in Music Industry. I have a background in Jazz and was involved in my school’s elite Jazz Combo ‘North Sea’ as well as Big Band, in which I was awarded ‘Most Outstanding Bassist’ in the NZSM Jazz Project in 2019.
More recently, I played Festival One over the summer with R&B band TECHNICLR and also played Bass at the Peachy Keen Festival supporting Foley in early April. In June and July of this year, I worked on tour with Drax Project & Mitch James with supporting act AACACIA, and currently, I’ve got a few exciting projects lined up with up-and-coming New Zealand artists.
I am a versatile and experienced musician and have knowledge in playing pop, rock, jazz, funk, etc so I’m more than happy to help out with specific genres or just across the board!
Based on personal experience, the best way to learn an instrument is by having FUN! I like to incorporate music theory into my teaching through learning songs and having a more practical approach rather to develop technique rather than written theory work etc.
