The Bass Guitar is a stringed instrument typically made of wood – and is most typically electric rather than acoustic. This style of Guitar typically has 4 strings (tuned to the same notes as the first 4 on a guitar – only they are one octave lower in pitch) but some Bass Guitars have 5 or even 6 strings.
The Bass Guitar plays a very foundational role in music. Bass notes can be compared to the foundation of a house – they are what you build upon to create something. If your foundation is not straight, your house will fall (in our example, your music will sound terrible). The Bass Guitar enjoys incredible underlying influence in the rhythm and tempo of most songs, participating with the Drumset to set the cadence. The bass can be an incredibly satisfying instrument to play, due to it’s deep, almost therapeutic tones which can be felt physically.
Bass Guitar lessons will help in the development of your child as he or she learns to play in a school band, or just for fun. Beginning Bass Guitar lessons can be taught with Acoustic or Electric Guitar lessons, but for someone who wants to progress to a medium or advanced level, a Bass Guitar teacher is recommended, because they can provide the practical playing skill that someone who merely understands the music theory behind it may not have if they are not regularly playing the Bass Guitar. Bass Guitar lessons will cover theory, scales, modes, picking/playing styles and solo work.
