About Dave Gagnon and
Dave Gagnon, founder of Bass-Guitar-Techniques.com, is a Professional Bass Player and Music Teacher. He currently teaches all of the
private bass lessons offered through bass-guitar-techniques.com.
Originally from Philadelphia, Dave moved to Seattle in 2004 when he was immediately recruited by local talent Danny Godinez. Since then, Dave Gagnon has gained a solid reputation as a bass player of incredible talent. He has performed at many of Seattle's popular venues including the Tulalip Casino, Seattle Art Museum, Triple Door, Showbox, and High Dive.
Since 2003, Dave has made numerous trips to
Victor Wooten's Bass/Nature Camp. During these workshops Dave has learned directly from many of the world's greatest bass players including Victor Wooten, Steve Bailey, Chuck Rainey, Anthony Jackson, Adam Nitti, and Edgar Meyer.
College education includes Cornish College of the Arts where Dave majored in jazz performance. At Cornish, Dave studied with Seattle jazz luminaries Chuck Deardorf, Julian Priester, Jovino Santos Neto, and Randy Halberstadt.
