How we work with you

What are our methods?

Assessing your level – beginners to advanced

First, we assess your current level of playing ability and create a tailored program designed to teach you at the right pace, with the right objectives in mind.

Developing your skills

We’ll teach you how to train your ear so you can come up with effective bass lines in a variety of musical situations.

Bass is all about locking in – you need to lock in with the drums, which means identifying which elements of a drum part to sync your playing with. You need to connect with the guitars or keys, which means knowing which notes will work with what they’re playing and which ones will clash.

You need to be aware of what the vocalist is doing so you can support their melodies and maybe add a little extra flourish in between lines. And you need to understand tone, so your overall sound fits properly with the rest of the band.

We’ll teach you how to train your ear so you can come up with effective bass lines in a variety of musical situations.
