Chris "Bones" Bonner is a bass player, educator, composer, arranger and band leader living in Brooklyn, NY. He is active in a diverse group of projects that include polka, jazz, classical, and commercial music. 

He has performed with a wide variety of acts, including John Scofield, The Lone Bellow, Lenny Pickett, Leon Pendarvis, Geoff Countryman's Buffalo Band, The XYZ Affair, Dusty Brown, Melanie Penn, John Scofield, Clinton Curtis, and others.

My approach to teaching involves combining work on technical fundamentals and transcription. I find that starting with detailed technical practice makes the acheivement of a player's goals quicker, and transcribing from recordings adds real playing experience and is invaluable for building musical vocabulary.
