Many parents have an interest in their children learning music and for good reason. There have been many studies linking academic achievement and playing music. This could be that it works amazingly well for stress relief, it requires focus, therefore, training your brain and self-discipline. But most importantly, we all like music of some form. Just imagine your child, beaming ear to ear after they’ve played their first recital, or just got through a piece of music they like for the first time. This would be such a proud moment for the parents. For any child, learning to play an instrument will be beneficial and the Double Bass is no exception.
When most people think of music lessons, they imagine a child taking their first steps into music under the watchful eye of an instructor. What may surprise you, is the number of adults who are grabbing an instrument and trying to play for the first time. Of course, there are also those who have started to re-discover their passion for music after years away from the instrument. Our teachers encourage learners of all ages. Age does not need to be a limitation. Professional musicians are also humble people, they will never patronise and always seek to explain next steps in positive, simple and encouraging language.
Lots of people believe that taking music lessons is just for the beginner or those studying up to University. After that, you should have all the information that you need and it’s time to be a professional or amateur musician. But this could not be further from the truth. Great musicians are always learning how to improve their craft and many greats still having lessons well into adulthood and beyond. The famous and highly regarded cellist Pablo Casals was asked when he was well into his eighties why he still practiced for hours upon hours every day - "Well I think I'm making progress" was his response. No matter what your level, whether it's a new style or a technical overview, taking professional lessons with a professional bass tutor is the best way to stay humble and to remind yourself that music is bottomless! All of our tutors are of high quality and able to help regardless where you’re at with your playing. Book today for 50% off your first lesson!
The Double Bass is a unique instrument, unique looking, unique sounding, and not as commonly played as other instruments. It can be played with a bow to get haunting beautiful sustained basslines essential to the sound of a classical orchestra or played with the fingers to get the classic percussive sound vital to jazz combos and big bands. This combined with the fact that the Double Bass is a fretless instrument, meaning you can create long slides across the neck makes the double bass a one of a kind instrument.
Trust, student, and teacher safety are of the utmost importance to us. All our tutors must hold the Enhanced DBS Certificate before you can see their profile and they can deliver a lesson. With safety, safeguarding and child protection taken care of, great learning can happen and parents can have their minds at ease
