Atlanta Bass Teachers
Matt Stallard began his musical career playing snare drum in his middle school orchestra and drum set after school at his home in rural Virginia. He switched to bass in high school and began learning classic rock tunes by ear from records and after several years of playing in local bands around the state, he relocated to Atlanta to pursue his desire to play and teach music professionally. He undertook a rigorous regimen of private study and practiced to hone his skills and became a fixture on the scene playing numerous styles including Rock, Reggae, Funk, Folk, Flamenco Bluegrass, Salsa, Country, Jazz and Latin Jazz. He also taught himself guitar and began performing on this instrument. His method of teaching all three instruments centers on demonstrating the accessibility to all of the art forms as well as imparting the fundamentals of music which he believes allows any student to become their own best teacher.
