I do not have a certification in ADD or Dyslexia assistance, but my oldest daughter has both and I've learned a lot through the years (mostly patience, encouragement, and creativity in relaying information and keeping students engaged).

Learners will need: -a bass guitar -a bass amp -the correct cord to plug your bass guitar into the amp -a tuner (such as a downloadable tuning app, a built-in tuner, a clip-on tuner, etc.)
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
