Buddy Pearson has been steadily playing upright and electric bass for 40 of his 50 years. Hailing from a very musically supportive family, he was given his first upright bass at age 9 and in one way or another, has never looked back. Soon after schooling, immersing in the local and Chicago jazz scene with heavy hitter players to this day. Buddy also plays bass for the longtime jazz group, Freek Johnson. In addition to playing with others nationallly and locally, Buddy also puts his bass and prodigious technique in a solo setting at weekly performances throughout venues.

 Along with playing, Buddy has been teaching all levels of electric and upright bass privately for the last 20 years. Currently teaching privately in his studio in downtown South Bend, and also at South Bend's The Music Village.
