Tammi H. says, "Dan has taught guitar to two of my teenage daughters going back seven years. I first learned of Dan through a neighbor who gave him rave reviews with teaching her son. He is an excellent teacher and very reliable. One thing I have grown to appreciate is how good he is with working with different personalities, both of my girls had different interest levels with learning the guitar, one was complacent and not great with practicing and the other is obsessed. Dan has been flexible and engaging with both of them. I have recommended Dan to several friends through the years and I can't recommend him highly enough." Read more

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:

  • 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?

Before choosing a guitar teacher, remember to:

  • 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.

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?

  • 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?

  • What is your policy if I have to cancel a lesson suddenly?
  • Can I incorporate my favorite songs into the learning process?

Tara L.
My son has been enrolled in guitar classes at Bones Jones Music for the past 8 years. Billy is an incredible teacher who creates a fun, welcoming community for music lovers who want to learn the guitar. My son's taste in music has changed over the years and Billy always meets him where he is and keeps him inspired to continue on the guitar, from acoustic singer/songwriter stuff all the way to technically challenging metal on electric guitar. Billy is clearly investing in the students at Bones Jones Music and truly helps everyone make meaningful progress.
