Bass Guitar ability
Influences: Musical Theatre
Retired (early) County music service teacher (qualified) working as trombone playing brass specialist; achieved senior teacher rank/status, conductor, arranger etc with 36 years unbroken full-time teaching experience.
I now work as a busy freelance pro performing musician.
During the last 4 + years I have worked on numerous Musical Theatre productions including school & youth companies. I hold up to date DBS! Also numerous depping/extra pro seats for one-off orchestral/wind/swing band concerts by Amateur/Community & semi pro groups.
Living in Princes Risborough, Buckinghamshire and with no ties or day job I am able & do travel within the UK for work, including overnights if the figures work out.
I hold diplomas in Double Bass and Trombone and own a late 19th century German 5 string Double Bass (recently restored) with pick-up; a Fender Jazz 5 string Bass Guitar, a 5 string Electric Upright (stick) Bass and Tenor & Bass Trombones. Obviously professional amps, effects pedals etc
As a trained experience musician, I am a reader. Experienced and very happy using click tracks, over-ears & personal monitors (in Theatre pits etc)
Please see my pseudo website within the encoremusicians.com site my link being https://encoremusicians.com/Graeme-Hollingdale I am also public on Facebook
I also do voluntary charity work as General Secretary for a National Charitable Society, committee work with editing/publishing.
If you've got the music & gigs then I'm your man.
