We will get you playing riffs/grooves from songs like Seven Nation Army, Hysteria and Billie Jean in no time at all.

Additionally once you're comfortable we will focus on harder techniques like slapping and alternate picking with songs like Cant StopBombtrack and Hot Water.

TIMETABLE

Lessons are flexible to the student. If you need the same day each week or need to change it up, it's no problem! We can work out a timetable that fits around you and your busy lifestyle.  

WHAT TO BRING

Please bring your own bass guitar (electric or acoustic) and a plectrum. It's always good for you to have your own instrument that you are comfortable with and that you can practice on when you go home. However we have a bass guitar for you to try in your first lesson. 

Everything else is catered for, so go ahead and check out the Classroom to see all the exciting equipment you will get to use!
