Class Experience

This course is primarily for beginning musicians. No previous music lessons or bass guitar experience is needed.
I will be teaching students basic music theory, ear training, proper bass technique, and rhythm playing so that students will be able to effectively learn any song on their own once they finish this course. Learners can expect me to model, use visuals, and audio examples in order for concepts to be fully grasped. I also find that when students feel the rhythm and beats of songs, it is easier for them to internalize it - be prepared to clap, tap your foot, or even jump in place during lessons.
Each week, learners are expected to choose one song or riff to play, record themselves playing it, and post the video to the classroom! There will also be a few worksheets for students to turn in once a week: naming bass guitar anatomy, string names, etc.
4-string electric Bass Guitar (If you have questions about which type of beginner bass to buy feel free to message me) Tuner (a Tuning app will also suffice.) Amplifier and cable (recommended but not required)
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
No live meetings, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
Songs that we learn together in class will not have swear words. 

To tune your learner's bass guitar you can use the Fender Tune app listed in 'External Resources.'
Download the app and play each string for the app to hear if it's in tune or not. You can always message me if you need extra help or have any questions. I will also go over this in week one.
