David Phillips – Bass Tutor

From learning to play bass at the age of 12, David drew inspiration from performing and writing music as a teenager, leading to studying BA Music at University of Southampton where he joined afrobeat-inspired band The Sea Slugs. Since graduating in 2014, David has performed at various venues and festivals across the south of the UK with The Sea Slugs, and more recently in five different countries in central Europe in 2017. Through the band he has also worked with afrobeat keyboard legend Dele Sosimi and Grammy award-winning percussionist Lekan Babalola.

Other than his work with The Sea Slugs, David has live performance and studio experience in a vast array of different genres. From modern jazz to musical theatre, from contemporary folk to hip-hop, (and his musical background of rock, metal and funk!), David has gained a broad stylistic awareness that allows him to flexible in both his playing and his approach to lessons. David also teaches Ukulele at Progress
