Anthony Wellington is a rare music educator whose individualized approach to teaching has made him one of the most in-demand bass educators worldwide. He is an alchemist of consistent bass study and musicianship that leads students to become their highest and best.
He has a uniquely thorough teaching style which incorporates concepts of math, grammar, athletics, psychology and philosophy and common sense. His curriculum is largely based on logic and efficiency.
Anthony is widely known as the 2nd bassist in the Victor Wooten Band. He is also a highly respected, long-time instructor at the Victor Wooten Music and Nature Camps and the Gerald Veasley Bass Boot Camps.
Anthony began teaching private lessons in the mid 90’s and opened his own private teaching studio, Bassology, on March 6, 2006.
When he is not traveling for clinics or tours, Anthony teaches 40 plus in-person and Skype lessons per week at his Bassology headquarters and his home studio. He also owns and operates AntFarm Recording Studios in Calvert County, MD.
Shortly after opening his own teaching studio, he extended his territory to include the Philadelphia, PA area one weekend a month.
Anthony was also one of the pioneers in offering private Skype lessons online which expanded his student base to teaching worldwide in 2007.
Anthony’s unique approach, what he refers to as “Bassology”, makes seemingly complex subjects in theory infinitely more accessible.
In his private lessons, at music camps, workshops and clinics, Anthony discusses a variety of topics including the understanding and application of all aspects of music theory, as well as melodic, emotional, and rhythmic devices.
