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. We will learn everything together, so students can expect me to model, use visuals, and play along with them constantly 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.
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. Fender has a great app!)
Amplifier and cable (recommended but not required)
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 2 - 4 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.
