Hello! I started playing bass in 1983 and began teaching in 1990. I’ve worked with over 3,000 students many of whom are now lifelong players. I grew up playing Rush, The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Journey, Pink Floyd, Genesis, Queen, Stevie Wonder, Eagles, Motown etc. etc. I’ve played everything from rock to country to reggae.


I graduated from Musicians Institute in Hollywood, California in 1990 and earned a BA Philosophy from the University of London in 2003. 


I’ve attended clinics and workshops with amazing musicians including John Entwistle, Billy Sheehan, Tim Bogert, Alan Parsons, Les Paul, Allan Holdsworth, Norman Brown, Eric Johnson, Albert Lee, Paul Gilbert, Mike Stern, Joe Pass, Andy Summers, Hiram Bullock.


Hope to see you in lessons,

Lance 🎸😎👍

Lance is an excellent teacher….patience, experience and knowledge coupled with a great sense of humor and laid back no pressure approach to learning. Lance makes the journey fun, challenging and rewarding. I can’t recommend him highly enough!

Lance’s approach is a slow steady on-ramp into learning every fret, note and major scale as a foundation. This has vastly increased my creative freedom as I play and write music!

Lance is an incredible teacher and extremely knowledgeable in all facets of music. He is very insightful and cares about his students, so there is never a dull moment learning to play! Highly recommended.
