Presently, as an Associate Professor of Music, with Tenure, and Director over Small Jazz Ensembles in the Department of Jazz and Improvisation Studies at The University of Michigan’s School of Music, Ann Arbor, my Daily Bassist practice revolves around working on my craft, my vision, and exchanging ideas with youth and those interested in growing their talent.
