Bass is really a band instrument and needs to be taught as such. No one takes up bass to sit around a camp fire and sing Kum-by-Yah.
Good bass players are hard to find and can always get a paying gig.
For that reason I generally teach Bass players to read music right from the 1st lesson.
This makes it’s easier to teach CORRECT bass fingering as opposed to guitar fingering.
Learning to read also aids a player to learn the names of the notes on their instrument; something guitarists often don’t do very well.
I teach pick, finger style, and slap and pop. A career minded bass player in this day and age should be able to use all of these picking styles.
BEGINNER AND SOCIAL PLAYING
The key to teaching and learning is to have fun. No one is motivated to take up a leisure activity that promises to be hard work, boring, and uninspiring.
If you’ve already mastered the basics of social playing you are now ready for the next step. More advanced skills are needed to handle the demands of band playing, particularly if you are looking to audition for bands, rather than just casually play with friends.
LEAD GUITAR (Intermediate to Advanced)
I help you learn all of the scales licks and tricks that will allow you to play a wide variety of styles i.e. Blues, Classic Rock, Metal/Hard Rock, Southern Rock, Latin Rock, Jazz Fusion, and a wide variety of other styles. The emphasis for players at this level will be learning the correct techniques and skills needed to achieve virtuoso level playing; High level Theory, Pentatonic and Modal scales, and Ear training.
HIGH SCHOOL ELECTIVE
If you been playing for a while and you’ve taken music as an elective subject at school, I take a slightly different approach. In addition to making sure that you have good strong basic band skills, I also teach students to read music. When playing with an elective ensemble at school you generally need a wider skill set than if you were just playing socially or in an amateur band.
Generally people who are thinking about being involved in the music industry in a serious way have already been playing for a while. When you come to me for this kind of advice I do a number of things for you. I assess and critique your playing, and talk to you about what you hope to achieve; and what interests you. I also give you an idea as to what the professional industry requires, and where you stand in relation to that standard. We then work out a study plan together to help you achieve this goal.
Like the Ukulele the mandolin has made it’s way into the pop mainstream. Rod Stewarts’ “Maggie May” and R.E.Ms’ “losing my religion” are two well known examples.
Led Zeppelin featured quite a lot of mandolin on their first few albums.
Classical Mandolin orchestras were, and still are popular, and it's well known as a folk instrument in Irish traditional and American bluegrass.
From basic to tertiary. I mainly focus on the kind of theory that has a direct application to live playing situations.
A great instrument to play, and pretty good results can be achieved in about 12 months (as opposed to say Trumpet or Violin which take about 2-3 years to be proficient)
I teach students to read music, as well as theory and technique.
My main interest is in teaching players to function in all areas of the music industry; which includes the skills to play in blues, rock, jazz, and pop bands.
Has got to be one of the best all time fun instruments.
Easier to play than guitar, more portable, and comes in four different sizes for every size finger.
