Special rate for this session: $20

Email Chris at or call her at 575-571-5298 to reserve your space.

1:00-3:00pm Groovin' with Ease
Workshop open to all bassists--upright, electric, bass guitar, uke bass, etc. We'll do a few warm-up exercises together; look at ways to increase speed, tone, and efficiency; experiment with creating more ease in our bodies while we play; explore groove ideas for a few tunes that have different rhythms and tempos (a waltz, something with a walking line, something with more rhythmic tools such as slides, hammer on's and/or ghost notes). Beginners, intermediate, and advanced players welcome! We all learn from each other and I offer "layers" of techniques and musical considerations for all levels.

Cost for the bass workshop is $30

Email Anne at or call/text at 575-714-0215 to reserve a spot and ask questions.
