 Victor Wooten Biography

Victor Lemonte Wooten is a unique human being. Born the youngest of five boys, he began learning to play music at the tender age of two. He started performing in nightclubs and theaters as the bassist with the family band at age five, and at age six, was on tour with his brothers opening shows for legendary soul artist Curtis Mayfield. Soon after, he was affectionately known as the 8-year-old Bass Ace, and before graduating high school, he and his brothers had shared the stage with artists such as Stephanie Mills, War, Ramsey Lewis, Frankie Beverly and Maze, Dexter Wansel, and The Temptations. But, this only begins to tell the tale of this Tennessee titan.

Wooten, now a five-time Grammy winner, hit the worldwide scene in 1990 as a founding member of the super-group Bela Fleck and the Flecktones. Continuing to blaze a musical trail with the band, Victor has also become widely known for his own Grammy nominated solo recordings and tours. Musicians wanting to learn Victor’s unique style and elusive techniques began seeking him out for lessons and seminars at music stores and schools around the world. These workshops became the training ground that lead to the formation of his acclaimed Bass/Nature Camp in 2000, which eventually expanded into Victor Wooten’s Center for Music and Nature. These “intensive” style programs, now in its thirteenth year, welcome all instrumentation and vocalists, and have helped thousands of people of all ages from all corners of the world enhance their musical and personal lives.

Victor is a loving husband and father of four, a skilled naturalist and teacher, a published author, a magician and acrobat, and has won every major award given to a bass guitarist including being voted Bassist of the Year in Bass Player Magazine’s readers poll three times (the only person to win it more than once.) In 2011, Rolling Stone Magazine voted Victor one of the Top Ten Bassists of All Time.

Speaking Topics
  • Music as a Language

    The youngest of five musical brothers, Victor Wooten was literally born into a band. Recruited at birth as a bassist by his four older brothers, Wooten says, “I learned to speak Music at the same time and in the same manner as I learned to speak English.” Explained in an inspiring and easily understandable way, Wooten shares his thoughts and life inspired stories on how he was both “taught” and “not taught” music and how the same natural methods used to learn our first language can speed up and enhance the learning of any subject. Victor Wooten’s two TED talks on the subject can be viewed in the video section of this page.

  • Music as a Lifestyle

    Victor offers an appealing approach by showing how to use aspects of music to help improve one’s quality of life (and vice versa). This talk is both inspiring and educational and appeals to people of all ages
    • musicians and non-musicians alike. Topics may include: Practice and preparation Being in tune Harmonics in music and in life Working together Focus and non-focus Listening and seeing in different octaves Raising the level of those around you

  • Teaching the Natural Way

    As a child, Victor Wooten learned Music at the same time and in the same manner as he learned English. Wooten also studied with various teachers in the native arts and sciences of tracking, bird language, and living with the land. Wooten shares insights into alternate ways of teaching that can help teachers reach their students more thoroughly. Topics may include: Showing and sharing rather than teaching Coyote teaching
    • tricking your students into learning more than they’ve asked for Becoming the student
    • tricking your students into teaching you how to do what they’ve asked to learn Understanding your students Nature as a classroom and role model Relating information to things the student is naturally familiar with

  • Music and Nature

    Wooten says, “Whether we know it or not, our quest to become natural at whatever we do is actually a quest to become more like nature. Excluding nature, as many musicians do, is a big mistake.” In the early 90s, while studying with Tom Brown Jr., a world-renowned naturalist and tracker, Wooten recognized a vital connection between music and nature. Immediately, the world took note and began asking Wooten to shares his ideas. Spoken in a way that makes even the non-musician feel capable of producing good music, Wooten inspires all by showing how following the laws of nature can bring us closer to everything. “Even the dictionary tells us that the word natural means both, ‘having the characteristics of nature’ and ‘without sharps or flats.’ Once a person has succeeded at following the laws of nature, he/she enters into the elite club of being called a natural.”

  • Back to Nature

    Victor Wooten spent a decade studying and practicing the skills needed to live in harmony with Nature as our ancestors once did. In learning these Native American, African, and Aboriginal skills, Wooten noticed that there were rarely any Native American, African, and Aboriginal people learning along side him. In this talk, Wooten raises questions and proposes answers as to why certain individuals, kids, and even whole races of people seem to avoid and even fear nature, as well as, how we can all reconnect with the naturalness that surrounds us. Join in a stimulating discussion that can help bridge the ever-growing gap and possibly save us from being destroyed by our planet.
