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.

Daniel
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.

Nina
Drum lessons in Amsterdam or remotely (for beginners and intermediate level)
Hello, I am Nina from Amsterdam. After many requests from parents to give drum lessons for his or her children, I now have my own studio to give drum lessons. Adults are of course also welcome! :) I hope to be able to create lessons with you that match what you enjoy. The studio is located in Amsterdam - Schinkelbuurt with two professional drum kits and sound system. If this is too far or for someone else, classes at home and / or online are also possible! I play in several bands myself and will be able to transfer the experience I brought to different genres in the following techniques: - Stick technique - Brushes - Creativity - Hand technique - Improvisation - Timing - Relaxed position - Drum notation - New fills - Grooves I have performed in many different cities with my bands. We were also in the final of the Rob Acda Award last year and we have a lot of airplay at KINKFM. I will also occasionally invite another musician (s) if the need arises so that you can learn to play with them. Playing along with other musicians you learn to master your own instrument!

Mario
Violin for everyone! Repertoire provided. ABRSM/Trinity possible
Hello! :) I'm a professional teacher/violinist with a “Master in education” from the Royal Conservatory. I teach either live or online from my studio located in the city center. I can also come at your place if you wish (I can reach different cities as I drive). Music making is guaranteed even through distance learning: you'll be provided with accompaniments and recorded music to support your learning process, giving so the opportunity of experiencing music making at its finest as you'll play often in a duo (violin and piano). You'll spare some money too as I will provide all the needed books and repertoire. You can play from your screen or even print at home the necessary sheets for the lesson rather than buying unnecessary extras. I graduated cum laude in my country and specialized in violin education here in Den Haag. I attended masterclasses and workshops with many celebrated musicians. As an orchestral violin player, I toured all over the world from Europe to China, and played with conductors such as Riccardo Muti, Wayne Marshall, John Axelrod, Pascal Rophè and many others. As a teacher, I have been teaching full-time from 2015 and got very good experience ever since. I have familiarity with all the most common syllabi such as Trinity, ABRSM or Suzuki. I like using technology but also new repertoire with different styles in my classes, I generally follow and develop my own pupil's musical interests. If you are a total beginner without any experience or an advanced musician, this class is suited for you! :)
