How does an "Ongoing" course work?

Meets on a weekly schedule, join any week, no need to catch up on previous material
Live video chats, recorded and monitored for safety and quality
Discussions via classroom forum and private messages with the teacher
Automatic payment every Sunday, cancel any time
Great for clubs and for practicing skills

Class Experience

This class is taught in English.
First and foremost, how to have fun with the Bass!  I love it and want to share my love of the Bass with them.  

In detail though;
fretboard knowledge (how everything works and where all the notes are)
scales (they make you solo better)
chord chart reading (can't play in any band without them)
theory (to understand the songs better and to eventually write your own)
Daily focused practice of at least 30 per day depending on age and level of seriousness. WIthout this and ACTIVELY working on getting down physically and mentally what we went over, Bass playing doesn't happen.
The Hal Leonard Bass Method Complete book will need to be printed or be accessible from another tablet device other than the one being used for Zoom, ie iPad, Android tablet, etc. The book can also be purchased for 10-20. Please have this ready for the first lesson. It makes it difficult for us to juggle audio examples, me talking, them playing, seeing my hands, their little hands and then also screen sharing a book on a horizontal rectangular screen that makes the book small and hard to see. Thanks so much! Full Windows/Apple desktop/notebook and a separate inexpensive webcam and stand separate from the notebook/desktop is STRONGLY preferred. These days with Zoom music lessons devices go in order from best to worst listed below: Macbook/Mac (I have used both PC and Mac and I know personally that this is the best) Windows 10 PC (Does the job well too, Macs just offer a little more bells and whistles) iPad (latest generation, sound quality is poor do to lack of adjustments) iPhone (last 3 generations, but you can not see screenshares of music because it is too small, sound quality is poor due to lack of adjustments) Chromebook/Android Tablets (They do not have the adjustments to sound quality that the others do and wifi is weak in Chromebooks) Android phone (unacceptable for music lessons, has no sound features, very spotty internet, small screen) This is not to be picky but hey let's face it, there can't be any Bass lessons if I can't hear your little one's Bass. We can try anything but just a heads up first. Bass Guitar and amplifier: A functioning Bass that has been approved by me via Zoom or by a repairmen or fluent player in your area. I have run into alot of one stop shop Basses that simply don't work and then parents get frustrated as to why their child can't play it. An average Electric Bass pack that is ok, I.E. amp, bass guitar, cord and strap, is about 250-300 I do not teach upright (double) bass. It is good to get an extra set of strings as they do pop and is completely normal. There will be no external websites or third party apps used for these lessons unless approved through outschool and the students parents. All video files, audio files and documents will be provided via the outschool classroom as an attachment
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Informal assessment, no grade will be given unless requested for a formal class credit.
25 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 2 - 4 hours per week outside of class.
Hal Leonard Bass Method Volume 1

I will provide all books and reference material other than the above mentioned book

Any individual songs that the student asks for that I don't have a copy of will be purchased through the parents.
