Grove, feel, leadership, and bottom end is what bass is all about. You will learn to lock in with a drummer, drive the music, and hit people in the chest with a full low-end tone. Students learn to walk a bassline, improvise groves on the spot, read chord sheets, and map the fingerboard.


The perfect instrument for someone looking to get into music, or a musician looking for a lovely sounding portable tool. Ukuleles are accessible in price, perfect for smaller hands, and directly translate to the guitar.
