We offer private, one-on-one instruction in electric and upright bass. Our lessons focus on the most important aspects of bass playing: groove, laying the harmonic foundation for an ensemble, and building melodic and interesting bass lines. The bass is an important instrument in all styles of the modern era: blues, jazz, rock, latin, and many others.
Traditional music lessons (which are often confined to working from a method book) often fail to meet the needs of bassists interested in playing modern music. Our lessons are much more comprehensive, including instruction in sight-reading, improvisation, music theory, songwriting, and ear-training, or even recording and music technology. Your private lessons can be tailored to fit your exact needs. You can study any of these skills individually or incorporate them into a program of bass lessons. We have students of all ages and levels of ability.
In addition, our instructors have performed and recorded with many bands, which make them excellent mentors for bassists seeking performing and recording opportunities.
