GUITAR, BASS GUITAR
My name is Dustin Hanusch
(ha-NISH), and I am a musician, teacher, and producer, based in
Franklin Tennessee. I was born in Renton, Washington, raised in San
Diego, California, and began my career in Los Angeles, California.
I have been studying music in one form or another since I was ten
years old and I have been playing the guitar since I was 15 (32
years old as of 2021). I was a percussionist in marching and
concert band throughout grade school. I received my first formal
guitar instruction at the age of 25 when I studied Classical Guitar
performance at Los Angeles Valley College under the tutelage of Dr.
Jordan Charnofsky and Dr. Gregory Newton.
I currently live in Franklin
Tennessee, teaching music, performing throughout the greater
Nashville area, and recording and producing music and YouTube
videos. I perform live solo guitar for corporate and private
events, accompany soloists in performance, and perform music
therapy for memory care patients. My debut EP, “Culmination,”
was released March of 2019, my debut album, “Positively
Lovely,” was released May of 2020, and my first original album,
released September of 2021, under the moniker of my one-man,
instrumental, jam band project, “Fifth Bass.”. It is my
mission to enrich people's lives through music, via entertainment
