Bass lessons cover the following aspects:

1) Technique: scales, dexterity exercises, arpeggio's and reading rhythm.

2) Listening Skills: Working out basslines and riffs, chord progressions, and listening to where the bass  fits in relation to the drums and other instruments.

3) Improvisation: practical use of the scales, modes and arpeggio's through soloing and following chord progressions.

4) Practical skills: most of the lesson is spent on this section. This will involve playing songs from either tab, chord charts or memory/listening. We'll also look at specific styles like blues or rock or work on your own songs.

*Theory Skills are learnt when learning scales, chords and songs For example: how to work out your own chords, what chord or scale fit where?

Not everything is covered in every bass lesson. For instance Improvisation will only start a few weeks after learning some scales and Listening Skills be only be covered while working on Practical playing skills.

Handouts are given when learning new scales, chords, exercises and songs.
