About

Abbey is a double and electric bassist in the Seattle area. Since graduating from the University of Washington in 2013 with a Bachelor's of Music in String Performance, she has expanded her skill set to more fully include jazz, improvised, and rock 'n' roll music. 

She recently finished a Master's in Music degree at the University of Washington, with a focus on Jazz and Improvised Music.

In addition to performing and recording with many groups, she also teaches private lessons and coaches through the SRJO's Jazz Scholars program.

I like teach through doing. Theory is a very important part of music, it's best introduced with concrete examples that make sense to your fingers and your ears first.

I prefer to teach toward a varying level of goals. They can be focused (learn a song/play in tune) or very broad (become more aware of different styles/start a band).

I like to keep lessons positive and encouraging, highlighting the good but never ignoring things that need work.
