Bass Lessons


Hills Shire Music offers bass tuition to students of all ages and levels.

Knowledge and understanding the strings, notes and fret board are the most important elements when starting out on bass. We go through a thorough learning structure that will get you playing basic songs from your very first lesson. We have many songs here for you to choose from. You can also bring your own songs in on your media device for you to learn to play.

We teach you notation reading, tabs, chord structures, intervals, basic and advanced scales and above all technique so you can groove along to your favourite music. Notation and sight reading as well as ear training are taught.

School bands and ensembles are catered for with many our students performing bass successfully in local school bands. We can help you through your school band books as well as learning other songs. AMEB exams are also offered where requested.

If you are unable to bring your own bass then do not fret! You can use one of our quality spare basses absolutely FREE for your lesson with no fee charge! We have a range of electric bass guitars in different sizes to suit your lessons.

Intermediate to Advanced players

Our bass lessons provide you with advanced knowledge to help you understand the fret board and how to improvise using scales and chords. Learn how to use the correct scale pattern that will enable you to play in any style. Get out of the open position and explore the fret board. Learn to use scale intervals to produce arpegios and chord progressions and use chord voicings to enhance your sound and technique. Our tutors will help you develop your own style and technique.
