LEARN TO PLAY BASS GUITAR

Civid-19. It won't be long before we are back to normal lesson procedures, but for now all bass lessons are temporarily online. Please get in touch to find out more, book a FREE introduction-lesson and start playing better bass! Get lessons from a working bassist and bass tutor with experience in the 1970's London scene!

If you can imagine a friendly environment, where you are stimulated by enthusiasm to learn and ask questions, where you, your musical tastes and goals take centre stage and are taken seriously, then you are in the right place! Learn to develop your own sound and musical ideas, become an individual on your instrument, push the band harmonically and rhythmically to a new level and above all, HAVE FUN!

Introduction lesson

During an informal introduction lesson, goals and preferences of both student and teacher are discussed and registered in a tailor-made lesson-plan that leaves room for creative flexibility. During the lessons we can work with your favourite music, piano, guitar and keyboard accompaniment and recording equiptment so that you can play along with your favourite band without their regular bassist!

TEACHING METHOD

I call my method of teaching music the 'all-round practical' method. Its main goal is to increase the amount of pleasure you have playing music. It's connected with and developed from my many years as a professional performing musician and is intended to provide a solid understanding of all aspects of making music at all levels.
I cover technical and emotional instrumental skills, basic to advanced music theory, melodic, harmonic and rhythmic awareness and how to deal with stress and nervousness to become a successful and satisfied musician.
The instrumental lessons are 'tailor-made', that is, made for the individual student. The atmosphere during the lessons is informal but educational.

 

MESSAGE FROM A DTUDENT

'After playing very little bass for a number of years, it started to itch again and full of good must I took my bass out of the case again. I'm not the youngest anymore so I thought to myself, maybe it would be more convenient to go back to lessons. After some research on the internet, I came across this site, made an appointment and there was actually an immediate click with Nick. Although I don't always have time to practice a lot, the atmosphere was always super relaxed and our motto for the lesson was “making music is fun” and that's it. Nick is a fine and skilled bass guitar teacher, he has patience and fun, yet always balances fine with technique and the right exercises so that you can progress quickly and that regardless of your age, which is great!
