Violin (ages 5+)

Kinsley H

I grew up with a passion for music, even playing the violin myself, but over time slowly fell in love with the beauty of an orchestra and the skill/talent of the violinists. I help students discover their own passions and enjoy introducing them to both the art of reading music and playing by ear since some areas come easier to students than others, but ultimately work together to play the violin. With each student I try to tap into their favored learning style to help them succeed and enjoy the process of learning and practicing the instrument.

Bass (ages 6+)

Bryan W

Bryan has been playing the Bass Guitar for 25 years and it is his favorite instrument bar none. His musical journey began on the saxophone in grade school, but he was persuaded to the way of the low-end when he learned that all the garage bands needed some bass! While studying 6 string guitar, he was propositioned to play bass in his teacher's jam band at age 14. By 16 he was teaching bass and guitar lessons at his local guitar shop. Bryan has taught lessons to well over 100 students over the years and is excited to take on more. After high school he studied jazz at Five Towns College in NY and Johnson State College in Vermont. While being a 90's rocker at heart, Bryan also fell in love with Funk and Soul, working tirelessly to capture the feel of legends like Bootsy Collins and James Jamerson as well as perfecting slap and percussive techniques. He has played in numerous projects spanning a multitude of genres, some taking him on extensive tours around the country and opening for big name acts. He currently plays bass and sings in local 90's rock cover band Good Catch.

Eric S

At first glance, you may think Eric could play every big hair 80’s guitar solo, and you would probably be right. But have some ‘Patience’ and don’t ‘Jump’ to conclusions about this member of our Motley crew. Eric dug deep into jazz at Boise State University, and studied film scoring at University of Colorado, found himself playing in orchestra pits, and toured as a country guitarist while taking his rock guitar gymnastics to venues from coast to coast.
With 30+ years of playing and 25+ years of teaching, there isn’t much Eric hasn’t played or taught. He also has a great deal of experience in other aspects of the field in live audio and recording settings.
Come see our resident chef (fun fact—Eric also has a culinary degree) and get your chops well done.
