My name is Costa, I am a jazz trained musician majoring in Bass. I am a professional musician, earning my income entirely from playing and teaching music. I have been teaching since 2012.
I tailor specific lessons to target student weaknesses in order to strengthen their overall bass playing. I teach people of all ages, and I am eager to help out anyone who wants to learn more about bass – whether it be how to hold the instrument or how to compose your own music.
Learning the electric bass encompasses many aspects of musical knowledge, the elements of bass that i teach include:
* The physicality of playing bass, including technique and posture. * Finger training exercises used to gain strength and speed of your instrument. * Technical knowledge of scales and arpeggios. * Understanding basic western music theory in order to know why bass players play the notes they play, and what notes not to play! * Understanding the role of the bass player, contextual to the type of music you want to play. Being able to hear the rest of the band and understanding their role as well. * Developing the right attitude and practice routine for you.
