I’m bassist and instructor Leah Pogwizd. In addition to providing information about my performance and teaching, this site is intended to showcase my various endeavors making comics, teaching about comedy, cross-stitching, getting a Ph.D., and other attempts at self-improvement. The idea behind “versatile practice” is that getting better at one things makes it easier to get better at others. I’m committed to making personal development (in and outside of music) more accessible and less competitive. I also focus specifically on jazz at my other site, Gig-Ready Jazz Bassist. Thank you to everyone for your continued readership, support, feedback, and encouragement!
