Learn To Play Bass Guitar

Without a doubt bass guitar is the fundamental back bone of all contemporary music. The bass guitar provides the foundation for two essential elements of music performance, rhythm and harmony and therefore plays a very powerful role within the structure of a composition. Although an easy instrument for beginners to pick up the bass guitar will be a continually rewarding challenge for any intermediate or seasoned player, the bass guitar is a satisfying instrument to learn no matter what level player you are.

Our bass guitar lessons are delivered with a progressive method in mind and students are introduced to music theory and sight reading from the beginning and developing these skills are an integral part of their music study.
