Micky C. says, "Jimi is a great guy. Has me laughing and learning at the same time. I must say I've only been going for about a month and so far he's taught me more than I've ever expected. I played some guitar as a teen and after dropping off for 40-50 years he has me all excited about learning again. I've only been going for about a month but I plan on continuing forever. Give me a year or so and Ill update the review but right now I have to practice. LOL" Read more

  • Most monthly subscriptions for ongoing lessons range from $170 to $315.

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?

I was in my 70s when I was A student of Jim’s. He is not only a fabulous musician but an expert in music theory. He is also a very kind amusing and wonderful teacher. I was a beginner on the double bass and he taught me about improvising, technique and what bass lines were all about. I would recommend him for all ages.

I have been getting guitar lessons with Bryan for over two years. As a forty something year old, who can be very stuck in his ways, Bryan has been abundantly patient with my slow learning process. He is thoroughly knowledgable of the guitar, adapts to my learning curve, finds real life examples that helps move me along in the right direction. So very thankful I decided to go with Bryan as my teacher. He does the music world good simply being the kind of teacher he is.

The guy's really cool. Over the years, he's taught me and my son a lot about the guitar and drums. He doesn't really beat around the bush and we both respond very well to that style of teaching.

If you're interested in it, he's very good with theory, which will help you become a musician, not just learn chords, etc. by rote. I think this really sets him apart. He is also very patient.
