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.

With, among other things, the second prize in the competition Français de la Harpe (2017). And for 3 years I also give private lessons in harp and solfège. These lessons focus on both (young) children who want to learn harp and adults who want to start with harp. Each student is guided at his own pace and the lessons are adapted to the wishes of each student. Also, solfège lessons are adapted as much as possible to the pace of the student.

Guillaume
Composition Electronic Music - MAO - Sound Techniques
Composer of electronic music since 2001, I developed a pedagogy specific to electronic music since 2005, in particular within the Technopol, Hadra and Musiques Tangentes associations, for an amateur or professional audience. I also graduated from the Pantin conservatory in electro-acoustic composition. The idea is to work on your own compositions, identifying the techniques that can help you progress. The ideal is to undertake this work over the long term, but it can also act as a one-off aid. I mainly use Ableton Live 11 software with Push2, but we can also work on Logic, Cubase, Reaper, Fruity Loops, etc.

Speaking of my personal achievements I can say that I am a singer and songwriter, I work in several styles- house, lounge, jazz, country, and pop, collaborate with musicians, sound engineers, and producers from many countries. I have experience of writing arrangements and working with professional musical programs such as Cubase, Nuendo, and others, also I worked a lot as a session vocalist in the many recording studios in Ukraine.

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.
