Musician / Bass Player / Bass Teacher
As of 2007 through to the current time (2023) I am happy to provide private tuition to people wishing to learn the bass. I am formally qualified with a post graduate in Education and Training (TAFE) and have many years of experience playing bass in the studio and at live performances.
The nature of lessons can be tailored to your liking ranging from formal ‘study’ type lessons through to ‘I wanna learn it now’ type formats. Depending on what you want to get out of your playing I can alter the format and style to help achieve your desired outcome. For example my first student had joined a band after only 4 months and was playing a gig at one of Australia’s most well know live venues (The Espy)
More than happy to help raw beginners (even with how to choose a bass) through to more experienced students, children and adults. We can even put together recordings of you playing or make a short video for your own webpage.
I offer lessons in my home studio in Patterson Lakes, Victoria , Australia or Online via Zoom and Jamkazam (see my Online Lesson Page for more details). The cost varies but can be as low as $35 per hour depending on your needs. I also offer the first lesson for free so you can decide if the format and style is to your liking. Even if you don’t have a bass I can give you a ‘loaner’ bass and amp that you can take home for free for the first month until you purchase your own instrument. I also provide the option to continue to use my ‘loaner’ instruments for extended periods beyond the first month for $10 a month. If you are interested please send me an email .
Below are a couple of samples of video lesson materials that I have created to assist students and this link will take you to myYoutube Lessons video page where I periodically post playthrough videos and videos containing further explanation of material students have covered in their lessons.
