Bass Guitar and Double Bass Lessons

I teach bass guitar, guitar and double bass and am based in the west end of Glasgow.

I was a music instructor with East Dunbartonshire Council from 2014-2018, and implemented and taught the Pathway to Bass Guitar course, as well as preparing pupils for Nat 5, Highers and Advanced Higher.

I have a wealth of experience in teaching students from absolute beginner to degree performance level, from primary school age to mature student. I also have experience teaching groups of children with special educational needs. To date I have put over 100 pupils through SQA exams.

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

All lesson plans 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
