About Travis |

Hello! My name is Travis. I really love playing the bass and I’ve been doing so for 9 years now. 

For me, the best part about playing the bass has always been the performing and creating of music with other like-minded musicians. 

 

I believe, the more you learn how to play your instrument, the more fun music becomes! And I believe learning should be exciting, strategic and an adventure.
