Victor Wooten, five-time Grammy Award–winning bassist, is known for both his solo career and his work as a member of Béla Fleck and the Flecktones. Wooten is also a skilled naturalist and teacher, published author, magician, husband, and father of four. His book The Music Lesson: A Spiritual Search for Growth through Music (Berkley/Penguin, 2006) is used in Berklee's LHUM-100 Artistry, Creativity, and Inquiry Seminar. Wooten illustrates in his book that musical gifts mirror those from life, and that each movement, phrase, and chord has its own meaning, as long as one is open to finding it.
