Meet the Director

Step Up Founder and Creator Ariane Cap teaches electric and upright bass, piano (classical and Jazz), improvisation, and music theory at the Bay Terrace Theater in Vallejo.

Her typical students range from professional bassists who seek her out for her versatility and eclectic styles on the instrument to beginner to advanced pianists. One of her specialties is also to help beginning improvisors break through barriers to achieve true self expression, or to help bridge the gap between 'just knowing' music theory and applying it in a meaningful way.

Music to this video is composed by Step Up Instructor Wolf Wein.

Hi Ariane--I have been really impressed with what you were able to accomplish at StepUp--so much so that I was shocked when you pointed out that it had been only two years!
