Luke is a bassist and guitarist that has 12 years of experience teaching. He studied music at The University of Washington where he now teaches in the Jazz Studies department. He is best known for his work with his band Heatwarmer and he has also played with Lonesome Shack, Thousands, Bill Frisell and Cuong Vu.
Luke’s approach to music lessons is centered around expanding what an student’s interests and strengths are while cultivating a knowledge of music theory and a technical ability based around those interests. He has found that this approach increases the likelihood of a student becoming a more self-motivated musician. Luke encourages creativity in emphasizing the importance of improvisation, composition and exploring a wide array of musical styles.
