Bass Lessons

Become the funky cool bassist that grooves.

GROOVE THE STAGE

The bass guitar is the instrument where groove truly stands out. Whether it’s a funky slap riff, straight rock or jazz bassline, the bassplayer has a crucial role in moving a song through its phases and giving it life and pulse.

The Music Lab houses some of the funkiest, grooviest and most talented bassists, with a wealth of knowledge, experience and funky creativity.

While our bass courses train you to become apt at supporting and laying down the lines for a band, don't be restricted - we'll unlock the solo artiste potential in you and help you explore music composition and arrangement.

Do check out Bani, our master bass instructor who is famous for his amazing groove and funky bass solos. Truly born with the soul of a bassplayer, you can see hints of Jaco, Flea, Victor Wooten, John Patitucci and Nathan East in his playing.
