Hey! Im hoping after reading this your search for a guitar/bass/production teacher will finally come to an end. I have been playing guitar for 16 years with 8 of those coming professionally as a touring artist/musician. I am self taught with a background in gospel, blues, and rock. I like to teach using a combination of learning some of your favorite songs, applied music theory and ear training. I have been working with major guitar brands such as Fender, Gibson, and Yamaha and can often get my students discounts on new gear and equipment with these respective brands. As a growing artist and influencer I love to share the love of my partne

Chris S. says, "I am an older guy who has actually been playing guitar since my teens. But like many, I didn't play much at all throughout most of my life. Got back into it a few years ago, and decided to get serious about upgrading my skills. Sort of an old dog learning some new tricks. Randy is a great teacher! He is patient and perceptive. He doesn't just regurgitate a formulaic set of lessons, but he really looked at the skills I already had, then tailored his instruction to build on that. He showed me several techniques that were superior to what I had been doing, and designed a practice regimen that targets my particular goals. I'm already playing MUCH better, and it's only been four weeks. And I feel like there is great potential progress in my future. Randy Garcia is an excellent choice if you want guitar instruction!"

Are bass guitar lessons worth it?

Bass guitar lessons are worth it to master those frets faster so that you can get confident enough to play for others.

A bass guitar teacher understands how to help you:

  • Focus on rhythm to set a solid foundation for other instruments in a band
  • Put less emphasis on chords and more on single notes and scales
  • Master your key genres like jazz, rock, pop, and funk

What age is good to start bass guitar lessons?

You can start bass guitar lessons for kids from the ages of 6 to 10 years old or whenever they can hold the instrument with enough hand strength to press on the strings. Any age is good for adults to start bass guitar with the right assistance and regular practice.

How many bass guitar lessons do I need?

The number of bass guitar lessons you need varies a lot according to what you want to achieve and how hard you practice. You could expect to play a simple song after 2 to 6 months. However, mastering the guitar professionally typically takes 4 to 10 years.

How do I find the best bass guitar lessons near me?

To find the best bass guitar lessons for you, look at the list of teachers nearby on the Lessons website. You might also find guitar lessons at local music stores.

Before choosing a guitar teacher, remember to:

  • Compare prices from 3 different teachers and ask what their lessons cover.
  • Look at what people have said about them on Google and Lessons.
  • Request a list of other students they've taught to check their experience.
  • Ask other parents how their children feel about the teacher.
  • Ensure you have a written schedule and agreement before the first lesson.
  • Pay in small amounts at first to make sure the teacher is right for you before committing to a full month.

What questions do I ask when choosing a bass guitar teacher?

To ensure you choose the best guitar teacher, consider asking these questions:

  • What's your educational background in music?
  • How many years of experience do you have in teaching bass guitar?
  • Do you offer a complimentary initial lesson?
  • What are the typical ages of your students?
  • Which model of bass guitar is best for my practice?
  • Do you know where I can rent equipment?
  • Will you assign finger workout exercises as homework?
  • How frequently should I practice on my own?
  • Which textbooks do I need?
  • How many genres of guitar music can you teach?
  • Can you modify your teaching approach if I'm finding it hard to grasp?
  • What items should I bring to each lesson, and how long does it last?
  • Can I have a written copy of our schedule, contract, and payment details?
  • What is your policy if I have to cancel a lesson suddenly?
  • Can I incorporate my favorite songs into the learning process?
