Why Choose Bass Lessons from JBM Music Lessons?

Bass students of all skill levels are welcome in JBM classes. Beginners, intermediate, and advanced players can benefit from bass lessons. I cover various topics of study, including:

  • Technique: My bass guitar lessons cover essential techniques, such as bass fingerstyle playing, playing with a pick, string muting, ghost notes and hammer-ons/pull-offs.
  • Metronome Practice: Staying in time is essential when playing the bass or any other instrument. 
  • Bass Line Construction: Being able to construct a strong bass line matters. It is the lowest-pitched part of the song being played. 
  • Improvisation: Coming up with a piece of music on the spot is common in many genres, including jazz and rock and roll. A bass instrumental can add some flair to live performances.
  • Sight Reading: Being able to read music when playing the bass guitar assists with composition. It’s being able to read the notes off the sheet as you go.
  • Transcription Techniques: Transcribing a bass line is listening to someone playing and writing out the music notes on paper as you hear them.
  • Methods of Practicing: Practice makes perfect. When teaching students to play bass, instructor Jesse suggests ways to practice in between lessons.
  • Ear Training: Understanding music from hearing it is a skill bass players and other musicians can benefit from. Areas include relative pitch, playing by ear, bass tone, and sense of rhythm.

These topics are covered during all lessons, but what’s emphasized is up to you. Bass classes from JBM in Los Angeles are perfect for any of the following:

  • Kids: Is your child ready to pick up an instrument for the first time? Consider electric or upright bass, which have four strings, making learning easier.
  • Adults: Whether you’re picking up a new skill or an experienced musician yourself, the bass guitar is a versatile instrument to learn. 
  • Music Students: Studying to become a professional musician is a great ambition. Let Jesse at JBM Music Lessons help your dreams of becoming a professional bass player come true.
  • Post-Secondary Prep: College and University music programs are competitive, making auditions stressful. Brush up on your bass skills to have more confidence beforehand.

No matter your skill level, you can benefit from bass guitar lessons. With a patient instructor by your side, you will master the basics and advanced bass techniques in no time!
