“Boy, do I have a lot to learn!” Anyone who’s ever picked up a musical instrument of any kind—from the first caveman banging rocks to that little kid at the guitar shop—has thought that. Grammy-winning musical icon and legendary bassist Victor L. Wooten certainly did—he had been trying for years to break in to the music scene, to show everyone his chops, and to make his mark. He was good, but he wasn’t great. He knew that there was something wrong.
Then the teacher showed up. Victor didn’t ask for him, and he didn’t think he needed him. And all the teacher said he could teach Victor was “nothing.”
What happened next, you may not believe; Victor sure didn’t … but that didn’t stop the teacher.
The Music Lesson is the inspiring story of a young bass player and the lessons he learns about life, music, and the life of music. Throughout this audiobook is new, original music written by Victor Wooten and a bonus performance by the original supergroup Bela Fleck and the Flecktones. Download and start listening now!
