Michael Watson's Personal Site

I am a music teacher, double bass freelance player, and web site designer in the St. Paul, Minnesota area. I currently teach at Coon Rapids High School and teach several private bass students from around the metro area. I am an adjunct instructor at Hamline University and the University of Wisconsin at River Falls. I perform frequently with local professional groups, including the Minnesota Opera. I maintain several websites, including a Tuning Guide and Tuning Tools web site, which has over 200 visitors a week from all over the world. I manage websites for the Minnesota String and Orchestra Teachers Assocation (mnsota.org), the Suzuki Association of Minnesota (suzukiminnesota.org), and Coon Rapids High School (www.anoka.k12.us/crhs).

Please help support the Tuning Guide if you find it valuable for you or your students. Recommended donation is $1 of occassional users and $5/year for frequent users. The donations will be used to pay for additional web space & to ensure that I can afford the band-width needed to make these files available to more users in the future. All donations are processed through PayPal to ensure security.

NEW!!! - Scale & Arpeggio Practice CD available
I have a Scale & Arpeggio CD that corresponds to my scale & arpeggio pages (see the educational documents page) that assists you with playing in tune. For more details visit the Scale CD page.
