Teaches at Meadowood: Tue, Wed, Thu, Fri & Sat
One of Meadowood's proprietors, Paula offers instruction in beginning upright bass for folk and bluegrass styles. Paula performs in a two-piece acoustic band, “Mike & Paula,” with her husband, Mike Andrews, and was a member of "Imaginary Friends," folk trio. Paula accompanied the Druckenmiller Family on their CD, Morning Star.
Paula studied bass under Josh Bayer and music theory under Robin Bullock and at the Peabody Institute. With this background, Paula introduces her students to the relationships between scales, chords and chord progressions and bass accompaniment for traditional music styles.
Paula uses aural tools, along with method books and encourages Bluegrass, Old-time, Celtic and Folk bass students to play by ear early in their development.
