Ron Wainwright – Bass Instruction

In his forty years playing bass, Ron has performed with various Jazz Ensembles, Rock/Blues, Celtic Rock, and Concert Bands. He has toured throughout Europe with Canadian military jazz ensembles, playing both fretless and fretted basses.

Since moving to the Sacramento area, Ron has played with the 30’s/40’s/50’s Dance Band, Bag’s Groove quartet, “Django Jazz” and various other groups.

Ron’s philosophy is that anyone and everyone CAN play music, and should always have FUN in the process. Lessons are always customized to suit each student’s individual experience, preferences, and goals. Instruction includes a solid grounding in music theory, leading to confident sight-reading, and building bass lines from fakebook lead sheets.

Mr. Wainwright is Music Director/Conductor for the Capital City Concert Band, and currently serves on the Board of Directors for the Sacramento Valley Symphonic Band Association.

Lessons are also available for Flute (beginning to advanced).
