My name is Steve, ut my friends call me Bside... So since we are friends, please feel free to call me Bside. 

I started gigging 3-4 nights a week as a sophomore in high school and a passion for music and live performance has only grown stronger over time. 

My goal in teaching is to provide practical information that my students can use right away. I hope that my Udemy courses encourage you to play more and explore the bass in new and exciting ways.
