As a youngster I played electric bass in bands, later earning a doctorate in double bass performance and becoming a full time bassist with the Florida Philharmonic Orchestra. These days I teach bass at the University of Arkansas and my Home Studio in Rogers, Arkansas, nestled in the beautiful Ozark Mountains.

My wife Lourdes and I have composed numerous works for solo bass, bass and piano, and bass quartet, which are published by,, Latham Music Enterprises.

If you or a bass student you know has an interest in supplementing the music you practice for orchestra, check out our music and my YouTube Channel. If you are interested in studying privately with a bass teacher, please contact me about bass lessons. (Because of the Covid quartine, both of us teach remotely online through Skype these days.)
