Bass is definitely one of the coolest instruments on the planet and so much fun to learn! Lessons are tailored to each student's background and musical interests. With younger students we begin by learning to read music, learning about music, and we play simple and fun melodies. For adults we learn using TAB or music notation, we learn about the role of the bass and how to construct bass lines. We cover style studies, rhythm studies, harmony study, developing time feel, and we look at the great bass players in music history and work out what they are doing so well. And of course we learn the bass lines that you want to learn!
