So you want to learn bass …

If you’re looking for bass guitar lessons, you’re probably already tuned in to the unique appeal of the bass.  While sometimes seen as a more background element of the band, it often provides the most compelling and memorable riffs and grooves.

Just a small selection I know, but even so there were many exciting techniques, styles and genres on show – a taste of the huge scope of possible bass playing to explore.

Whether you are picking up a bass for the very first time or are a more experienced player needing some focus or direction, a one-to-one session is just the best environment to get personal feedback and learn in a structured way.  Regular lessons are not the only option though, there’s short courses and one-off workshops also available.
