"No question that Freekbass is an innovator, he carries the torch for all that old school funk that most of the over 35 crowd grew up with, yet his music relates to today's younger aspiring musician because he infuses techniques from all genres of music. Rock House's partnership with Freekbass further solidifies our position as the instructional company for the next generation of players." Said Joe Palombo of Rock House.
