My name is Steve, I am an accomplished electric bassist with a Bachelors degree in Contemporary popular Music (Bmus) offering bass lessons to anyone from first day players up to intermediate musicians. I can help with structured lessons and theory teachings or work from what I like to call a "Question and Answer Format". I am able to teach from my home in Taringa or travel to you!
I have spent over a decade playing in bands and studying the instrument and I am confident I can help you reach your full potential as a bassist in your desired genre. I have both 4 and 5 string basses on hand so which ever your preference, you'll be learning with an instructor playing the same style guitar as you, this can stop some of the confusion and help with the specifics of each instrument.
I can help guide you through...
- Basic technique
- Intermediate to advanced technique
- Beginner Theory
- Bass Line Construction
- Groove and feel
- How to work with a band
- Timing and internal time development
- Chords for bass guitar
- Song repertoire
- Reading Music
- Reading Chord charts
- Solo bass arrangements
- How to get the most out of practice
- How to enjoy and get the most out of your musical journey.
I take students of all ages, encourage parents to sit in and learn with their children and can supply a bass to use while being taught if transporting your instrument is not convenient.
Please contact me via email if you wish to discuss your future lessons, Group rates, Parents with Children rate or any other questions you may have.
