James Menzies

So you wanna learn double bass? Excellent Choice!

I can offer lessons to all ages and have experience teaching beginning students through to the advanced high school level.

My method and content of teaching is largely dependent on what you want to learn, though my specialty in playing and teaching is the classical style (with a bow, reading music etc).

I can teach Monday to Friday (9am - 6pm) as well as Saturday mornings. Lessons are made individually at mutually agreeable times. No hefty upfront bulk fees!

I also offer tuition on music theory which is highly recommended especially to those new to playing an instrument or that haven't read music before.

It's no secret that at the core of every good ensemble is a good bass player, so if you're interested please give me a call on 0432801574 or send me a message!
