Mackenzie Leighton

I am a jazz bassist with several years of cruise ship experience.
Teaching Philosophy

I'm focused on teaching students skills they need to do gigs. I emphasize reading standard notation as well as lead sheets/chord charts.


I've been a working musician for the last 7 years. I spent the last three years working on cruise ships and can guide students towards that if they so desire.


I have a minor in Jazz Studies from San Diego State University where I studied with Bob Magnusson (former sideman for Art Pepper, among others).
