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.
A good bass player needs a higher level of theory than a guitarist playing the same material, especially if the bassist has to make up their own parts. For this reason I generally start practical music theory at a much earlier stage of the learning process.
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.
