I am offering private, one-to-one tuition in electric bass guitar, fretless bass and acoustic bass guitar (ABG).
All ages and abilities are welcomed and encouraged.
I have 10 years of teaching experience alongside 14 years of playing bass at a professional level, which includes playing at festivals and venues all across the UK and Europe. I hold a Grade 8 in Bass Guitar and a CHE in Popular Music Performance.
I tailor my lessons to each individual student and adapt them to best suit your learning style. I strive to make lessons a fun and inspiring journey, where goals can be made to achieve.
In my lessons, here are just some of the things we will look at:
- A range of genres from Rock/Pop/Funk/Blues/Motown etc
- All techniques from Finerger-style/Slap/Pick/Tapping etc
- Music theory
- Fretboard Knowledge
- Song compositions
- Writing & constructing original bass lines
- In-depth study of specific genres and styles
- 4 String & 5 String Electric Bass
- Fretless Bass
- Acoustic Bass Guitar (ABG)
My speciality is in Acoustic Bass Guitar (ABG), where I have 5 years of experience. Although it's fundamentally similar to an electric bass, I see ABG's as a hybrid between a Double Bass, Electric Bass & Acoustic Guitars, meaning that it is necessary to adapt your approach and technique in order to get the best out of them. ABG’s have risen with popularity and is ideal for those who just want to ‘pick up and play’ music with others without being confined to an amplifier.
Lessons are taught from my home in St. George. I will consider travelling to teach if travel costs are covered.
