Our bass instructors teach rock, blues, metal, country, and classical styles on both electric and acoustic basses. Beginners work on chords, simple songs and melodies, sight reading and theory. Each lesson will challenge you with a new technique or music theory and ends with something fun – such as your favorite riff or song. We employ a variety of bass method books based on student needs and preferences and encourage students to bring smartphones or CDs to their lessons to learn their favorite tunes.
