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?

Karen Sarkisian was an excellent pedal steel guitar teacher for our teenage son. She provided terrific, high-quality instruction, offered a nice balance between challenging and supporting him, and also jammed together, making the lessons a lot of fun too! We were fortunate to find Karen, a highly sought steel player for local gigs, as it was not easy to find someone who not only plays but also teaches this instrument. We highly recommend Karen!

What I like most about Russell is that he is such an enthusiast and encyclopedic savant of modern and classic folk, rock, blues and country. If he doesn't know the song from memory, he'll fire it up on his phone and figure it out in real time. And he readily adjusts to what you want and need. If you just want a partner to play with, that's fine with him. If you want to go deep on music theory, he's there for you as well.
