The electric bass is sometimes mistakenly referred to as the bass guitar (a different instrument all together). It is the solid body, usually fretted, electric version of the upright bass, AKA double bass. The bass teachers at River Heights School of Music are versed in both as well as all the styles associated either.

Most importantly they are bass players and not guitar instructors pressed into service of teaching bass. As with all our teachers, the bass teachers are University educated.

Our bass lessons start with the basics like holding the instrument, proper right and left hand positioning and the basics of music like note reading, understanding rhythm and other skills. We can then move on to areas of music study. Areas  like arpeggios, scales, bass line construction, learning bass parts from existing music and improving overall technique. Unique to the electric bass is the fun technique of ‘thumbing and popping’

Bass students also get to explore other styles of music with their teacher like:

  • Rock
  • Blues
  • Funk
  • Jazz

We can also prepare advanced students for University and College music program auditions.
