You may not know this - or never stopped to think about it - but two people can pick up the same exact guitar, plug it into the exact same amp, strum the same chord, but achieve different results. Additionally, a person who has never played an instrument and has zero understanding of music theory can't tell you how to play their favorite song, but chances are they can tell if you're playing it wrong. These concepts are why music is the universal language. In the first scenario: no two people will ever have identical voices and use identical vocabulary. In the second: even if a person doesn't understand the language you're speaking they...

My son is naturally quick to pick up things and appears easy going so is often pushed a bit by teachers which causes him to not want to take class. Jeremy is able to move forward and pull back as he senses my son needs. It has been a great experience for us and I would highly recommend him. " Read more

Music is a language, you need people to practice and expand your vocabulary. The more people you play with, the better you are. That's how I learned! Over the past 5 years I've asked everyone who's played an instrument to teach me a little bit of their personality. This translates to a very fun, non-lesson type of curriculum. I'm here for you, and whatever you need to learn, we will learn together. :) Let's chat !

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 began studying guitar with Adrian 3-1/2 years ago after not having played music for 30 years. I have learned more from him in that time that I did previously in 13 years of study. Adrian enjoys teaching and knows how to teach, and has encouraged me to do my best and have confidence. It has truly been one of the best experiences of my life.

Jeremy has been teaching our daughter drums for four years and has always met her where her interests are while still challenging her and keeping her engaged. Our daughter is always so happy after having a drum lesson with Jeremy. He communicates very well and is willing to work with our schedule if something comes up. We are very happy with Jeremy as a music teacher and would highly recommend him.
