...Bass & Guitar Lessons for Beginners...


 

Dave Minor
Bass & Guitar

My name is Dave and I want to share with you the joy of playing bass and guitar!  My love affair with Music began at 14 years old and grows stronger every day.  By age 18, I  was playing in an 8 piece dance band gigging around the Bay Area.  Since then I have had the great fortune of traveling down many musical roads, performing in diverse settings from R&B, Blues, and Jazz to Rock, Folk, Country and Church Music.

I have studied music at City College of San Francisco and College of Marin including music theory, ear training, jazz improvisation, piano and big band jazz ensemble. For the past 7 years, I have been studying with world renowned bassist and educator Anthony Wellington (Victor Wooten band).


I am very fortunate to be gigging regularly in the Bay Area with a wide variety of artists including Whee The People and the Carmen Ratti Band, as well as leading my own cover band Soul Doctor.

Being the very proud parent of a beautiful 15 year old daughter has opened a door in my heart which has led to a passion for teaching children as well as adults.  I have spent the last 15 years teaching regularly and have discovered a whole new level of satisfaction in sharing what I have learned so far!


Here are a few examples of my playing with various artists:
