What You WANT to Know
The first part of bass lessons is providing students with what they want to know. This is obviously decided by the student and allows the student to determine what they would like to learn for a portion of their lesson. Some of the options that students usually choose to learn include songs from their favorite artists, the main riff or lick from a song their currently listening to, a style of music that interests them, a certain bass technique, or an aspect of music theory that intrigues them. Most students choose to learn songs.
What You NEED To Know
The second part of bass lessons is providing students with what they need. We believe all students should know certain elements of music to become skilled, knowledgeable and, ultimately, creative musicians. These elements would include basic chords, common bass techniques, chord progressions, scales in the most commonly used major and minor keys and a practical hands-on theoretical understanding of how these chords and scales function together so as to help the student play the music they enjoy listening to and to create their own music.

Although there are many other elements we believe to be important and are included in our bass lessons, the above-mentioned knowledge and skills are the ones that we feel are indispensable for every student. Talking with one of our enrollment counselors will allow us to discuss your specific goals. We can also explain the differences between the two tracks in more detail. Both tracks will cover all the essentials mentioned above, but approach the material in a different manner.
