Music was My First Career
I devoted my life to it: whole-heartedly. My main instrument is the electric bass, but I play several other instruments. I've played literally hundreds of gigs, in 6 different states, almost all while being based in my little podunk home town.
For a very brief while, I moved to Austin, Texas to pursue a career in music, and my career was put on the fast track. However, at the time, my daughter had already been born. It was set on my heart that I was being incredibly selfish to choose a career in music in Austin over being available to my daughter. I moved back to my little town. And continued to play locally.
Recently, I've stopped playing live quite as much. There are a lot of reasons, but a huge one is to focus my time on my computer programming company
The Music Services I Offer
I am a music teacher; I have been for a very long time now. I offer lessons on several different instruments: a full list can be found here
I still play a few times a year. Local and small time stuff, because I enjoy it.
