Some people call Victor Wooten the greatest bass player alive. He started playing the bass when he was three years old. His stage debut came at age five. Victor is a member of the Grammy-winning Béla Fleck & The Flecktones and winner of two Nashville Music Awards for Bassist Of The Year.
In his book, The Music Lesson: A Spiritual Search For Growth Through Music, Wooten creates the character of a mysterious teacher named Michael, a mystical guide who helps musicians on their quest for a deeper connection with their craft, and their souls. Victor Wooten also runs a Bass/Nature camp, which he says is "designed to open up your mind and awaken the senses to the vast world of Nature, Music, Life, and You". Mary Hynes speaks to Victor Wooten this week on Tapestry.
The Music Lesson: A Spiritual Search For Growth Through Music is published by Berkley Publishing Group.
