Bass Guitar Tutoring to help you develop your playing

I have over 25 years of experience playing the bass guitar having taught myself to play by ear from a very early age. I also learnt to play piano whilst young which will enable me to be able to teach you chords, scales, progressions and when it comes to song genres, I'll be able to help you to groove/jam along to different riffs ones such as reggae, gospel, soul, r n b, etc.

So whether you're a beginner who wants to learn the bass guitar from scratch or you already know how to play, but feel that you want to develop your playing to a higher standard... then I'd be happy to help you out

It will be a relaxed and fun environment that I will look to create, so there'll be no need for you to worry about feeling tense or under pressure.

Extra information

It would be preferable if you had your own bass guitar, but it's not essential

Experience / Qualifications

I started off playing at my local church(where I still attend to this day and am currently Music Director there) for many years at various services and general conventions, but it wasn't until 2005 that I broke onto the gospel scene as a more accomplished and established bassist.

Since then I've supported and worked with gospel artists such as Tracey Campbell, Natalie Phillips, Brenda Emmanuel, Michelle John, Adelaide Mackenzie, Christina Matovu, Boma Diri, The McGhie Family, Sharon Wilson, Michelle, Carren Richards, Fiona Yorke, Many Rivers choir, Peter Francis & The Jabez Family, Pure Wisdom, The Reapers Choir, The Cokers and many more.

I played on an album called NoBoundariesNoBordersNoLimits by gospel artist Althea Wray back in 2003. In March 2008 I was part of a group called Sandal Street that won the Fairtrade song competition put on by Lewisham Council. Sandal Street later on in July 2008 performed a set at the Lewisham People's Day Festival as their prize for winning, as well as getting to record their winning song at Creekside Studios in SouthEast London. More recently in 2014, I played on the track 'Lord Over Everything of gospel artist Fiona Yorke's debut EP 'Live To Worship'.

I've had the privilege of taking my music to various parts of the UK (Birmingham, Derby, Reading, Swindon to name but a few) as well as internationally to places such as America, India and Barbados.

I'm a regular member of house bands at various gospel events.

I'm the bassist and also the manager of a band called A.G.M. (Anointed Gospel Musicians), I also manage a different band of three young musicians. I've had the privilege of appearing with A.G.M. at the Isle of Wight Festival, Margate Soul Weekender and events such as Premier Gospel Week, Time to Worship, Zoe Nites and Sunday Gospel Brunch at London's famous 606 Jazz Club.

Music/Audio Production & Guitar Performance & Music Theory
I currently offer teaching and mentoring in the following areas: - Music/Audio Production - Guitar Performance - Music Theory My methods are generally adapted to each individual’s needs and objectives, however, they do not include classical music training approaches, such as sight reading or formal classical music training. Instead, my approach focuses on developing an intuitive understanding of music, through understanding elements such as intervalic structures, mathematical permutations, analogies derived from other disciplines etc. The ultimate goal of my approach is to allow the individual to form a way of thinking, which will allow she/he to compose, produce or play ANY type of music.

Ableton & MaxMSP Lessons - in a͓̽m͓̽s͓̽t͓̽e͓̽r͓̽d͓̽a͓̽m͓̽
Ableton Live is a software music sequencer and digital audio workstation. In contrast to many other software sequencers, Live is designed to be an instrument for live performances as well as a tool for composing, recording, arranging, mixing, and mastering. Max, also known as Max/MSP/Jitter, is a visual programming language for music and multimedia. Over its more than thirty-year history, it has been used by composers, performers, software designers, researchers, and artists to create recordings, performances, and installations. Depending on your interest I will show you how to use and customise each program to your needs, but also show you how to combine the two in order to get the best of the 2 worlds. Ableton and MaxMSP are a killer combo for anyone that wants to: - expand their musical instrument with electronic extensions - create custom made controllers for their live performances - create complex automations for live or studio use - produce music, compose, arrange - create automated VJ sets to accompany their live performance - create a live looping performance - control backing tracks for live performances - work on generative music - program art installations and much more I will give you sets & patches with examples to accompany the lessons, but also help you build your own creations in MaxMSP or Ableton.

Wouter
(Bass) Guitar, Music theory and Solfège in Wittevrouwen, Utrecht
Hello (future) musician! Do you also have a song in your head that you would like to play? Always wanted to play electric or acoustic guitar or bass guitar? Have you never touched a string, or are you advanced and looking for new challenges? I have been giving guitar lessons since 2007 with great pleasure. In addition to these private lessons, I worked at the Guitar Academy in Amsterdam, at Muziekles Den Bosch and at Art in Music in Utrecht, next to my work as an executive musician. I studied at the Rockacademie in Tilburg and Musicology at Utrecht University. Broad interests, reflected in the hoevelheid styles I play and education (from pop and rock to salsa, tango and gypsy to metal and jazz). I also give solfège and music theory. It does not matter how exotic your interest, I can help you get better! In addition, I can choose and arrange songs for you, so that there is no limit to your imagination: learn to play what you want to learn to play. These lessons are not given in a large, impersonal music school: lesson duration and lesson dates are discussed and are flexible. Personal and smooth, easier for everyone. Besides guitar enthusiast teaching is a big passion of mine, and I think that is essential to be able to offer good lessons. Whether I teach you how to play your first songs in a few lessons, or whether we are going to pick up some tough pieces, it is a pleasant and productive learning process. Lessons in Wittevrouwen, Utrecht or at extra cost at home. If you have questions, mail or call!

Henry
Guitar Performance
I've played guitar for over 10 years, and have taught many people during that time. I prefer to play by ear, so i can help you develop your own musical ear, which unlocks the ability to improvise, jam with other musicians, and understand music to a deeper degree. Bring me a song you'd like to play, and we'll work through others to help build upon the techniques you'll need to be able to play freely and accuratley, the music you'd like to play.
