Bass Lessons

Bass lessons, double bass lessons in the west end of Glasgow from an experienced and professional teacher.

My professional teaching experience includes employment as a music instructor with East Dunbartonshire Council from 2014-2018. In this role,  I implemented and taught the Pathway to Bass Guitar course. This position also included preparing pupils for Nat 5, Highers and Advanced Higher.

To date I have put over 100 pupils through SQA exams, and have taught students from primary school age to adult. As well as teaching in mainstream schools, I have experience of teaching groups of children with special educational needs. 

For private lesson rates please contact me. Group lessons and lessons via Skype are also available.

All bass lessons are tailored towards the individual, but what I cover will often include:

  • Double bass, 4/5/6 string bass guitar
  • Rock, jazz, funk, blues styles
  • How to construct a bass line
  • Learn how to solo and improvise
  • Build a repertoire of tunes
  • Prepare for exams
  • Reading and transcribing music
  • What is expected of a professional, in-demand bass player
