Martha is vital to the creation and the continuation of the kcbassworkhsop. George and Her made the D.C. workshops which is the overall blueprint for kcbass. She influenced Johnny on his teaching pathway by her conversations with him when he arrived at their home in Bethesda Maryland in the later 90s. Many times she clarified ideas that George was teaching me with a simple and quick answer. She is a Suzuki cello teacher (now she will teach double bass as well) and is very exceptional at doing so. Martha has been on faculty and is honorary faculty at kcbass. She does many behind the scenes things to make kcbass extraordinary every year. Her conversations with Johnny help the most.
