One-to-one bass guitar lessons at The Rhythm Studio are available for both children and adults, and we welcome students from beginner to advanced levels.
Beginner bass guitar lessons involve studying the foundations of bass playing technique, developing a basic understanding of chords and scales and jamming your favourite songs. More advanced players are able to concentrate on the areas and styles that they want and need to work on. Topics include advanced techniques such as slapping, popping and tapping, detailed studies in the application of music theory, creating walking bass lines (including chromaticism), understanding common grooves in different genres and finding the most suitable tones for different situations. The Rhythm Studio offer bass lessons for 4, 5 and 6 string electric or acoustic bass, as well as fretless or upright basses.
Learning to work with other musicians and explore the styles of music you enjoy are at the heart of The Rhythm Studio's approach to music education. Developing song-writing skills can be incorporated into your one-to-one instrumental studies, or alternatively you can join one of our small group Composition Classes. There are also regular opportunities for our students to perform live and we encourage all our musicians to join our flourishing band scene, either via our weekly Band Sessions or at Rock & Roll Boot Camp.
