Website revamp

Currently building a new website this time using Wix templates, enjoying the building and updating process while waiting for my domain to be transferred so it can go live, in here you can find info about me as a Jazz Bass Tutor/Teacher, Jazz Double Bassist, Jazz and Bass Lessons, and Jazz Bass Transcriptions.
