bass lessons

Bass lessons for ages five and up

Overview

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 like 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.

What’s the #1 reason to study bass at the Academy?

Our bass instructors are warm and friendly, and get to know each student and parent on a personal level. We work with you to craft a lesson plan that fits your individual needs and the student's favorite type of music. Whether you're playing in local bands, a seven year old taking your first lesson or a fifty year old returning to the bass after many years, we’ll set goals to achieve your musical aspirations and help you play the way you want to play.

How qualified are your bass instructors?

Our bass and music instructors have received their education from prestigious institutions such as New York University, Indiana University, the Berklee College of Music, Oxford University, the University of North Carolina School of the Arts, South Carolina Governors School for the Arts, the Atlanta Bass Institute and Columbia College. Many have toured the US and Europe, and bring over 25 years of professional performance and teaching experience to your lessons.

Do I need to purchase a bass to learn the instrument?

The Academy offers acoustic and electric basses for your convenience. Students can use one of ours at their first lesson, but to practice at home you will need a bass.
