Meet the Director
Step Up Founder and Creator Ariane Cap teaches electric and upright bass, piano (classical and Jazz), improvisation, and music theory at the Bay Terrace Theater in Vallejo as well as at the California Jazz Conservatory.
Her typical students range from beginners to professional bassists who seek her out for her versatility and eclectic styles on the instrument. One of her specialties is also to help beginning improvisors break through barriers to achieve true self expression, or to help bridge the gap between 'just knowing' music theory and applying it in a meaningful way.
Ariane is an educator for the online education powerhouse TrueFire. She is the author of Music Theory for the Bass Player, a comprehensive compendium for the enthusiastic bassist, and runs an educational video blog at arisbassblog.com
