Gary Checkeye has been an instructor with us for 18 years! He is known and respected by all the pro musicians in Indiana. Gary has played with a who’s-who of local, regional, and national talents. His technical proficiency is amazing, but he’s the one who knows when and where to apply, and not over-apply his bass skills. His improvisational chops and tasteful style of play, his personality, charm, work ethic and positive attitude are the reasons he’s been able to remain a full time pro player, supporting his family as a professional musician and making so many musical friends over the years.
