Bass Guitar Tuition Testimonials
“Had a free bass lesson with Tom last week online, I didn’t expect it to work as well as it did. Clear and enjoyable taster lesson, Tom is a good tutor as in he’s clear with instruction and patient and he needs to be as I’m an older learner shall we say. Looking forward to many more lessons to improve me as a Bass player – Phil Gittus”

“My son has been having guitar lessons for just over a year, he loves his lessons with Dave Phillips and has even had an opportunity to perform on stage. Samantha Reynolds”
“Syd started the guitar with Dave when she was four (now five) her progress really shows and Dave is amazing with her…. his patience when she has an “off lesson” is remarkable, she comes a long way and now at home just picks it up and plays away. He teaches her in a very individualised way that suits her brilliantly. Thanks for getting her to love playing an instrument. Melissa Clark”

BASS GUITAR LESSONS FAQS
What is the best age to start learning Bass Guitar?
Pro Music offers Bass Guitar lessons for kids from the age of 5 years old, we also offer bass guitar lessons for adults. The main benchmark for children would be that they know their alphabet and can sit for 20 minutes. We have half-size bass guitars which are ideal for our younger students.
Realistically, most people think that once their child can hold the right size guitar between 5 and 7 years old it may be time to get started. You will need to keep in mind that all children are different some may be able to pick up the guitar but not have the concentration to be able to sit long enough to learn or might not be able to comfortably hold a guitar but have the concentration, when these two main factors come together you will have a better indication as to whether or not your child’s ready. You will also need to take into consideration if your child is mature enough and interested enough to start learning, the choice of instrument should really be left to your child otherwise they will lose interest very quickly.
Before you start spending money on guitars and lessons we will gladly give your child a free taster guitar lesson to see if your child is ready, leave it to us to be able to work out if your child is the right size to be able to hold the appropriately sized guitar, to be able to reach the frets comfortably and more importantly to be able to sit through lessons and pay attention.
How do I know my child is ready to play the bass guitar?
Before your budding musician gets going there are a few things you can think about first.
1. INTEREST Is your child actually interested in playing the guitar? If your child shows a real love for guitar-based music whether they have been listening to your favourite rock bands or singer-songwriters and show a real passion for music this is a great sign.
2. FOCUS Does your child have the ability to focus for around 30 minutes? Children ( or adults in fact ) do not need longer than a 30-minute lesson each week, if your child can sit for that length of time and take away knowledge from that lesson you’ll be on to a great start.
3. PRACTICE Some say practice makes perfect and quite frankly we agree when starting out parents will need to help their children to set a practice routine to embed skills learned in each lesson. We aren’t talking hours a day 15 minutes a day is adequate.
4. DEXTERITY Most kids have basic finger dexterity. When kids start out they won’t have full strength and dexterity but as they practice more and get older this will become stronger and make playing the guitar a lot easier, as your child’s dexterity improves and they can play the songs with ease it will boost their confidence.
5. MATURITY, In order to start lessons your child needs to have the maturity to sit and listen to their teacher, your teacher, will be fully trained and knows how to make learning fun but your child will find practising at home hard if they haven’t listened to their teacher’s instructions.
What are the Benefits of Music Lessons for Kids?
- Builds language skills. As they learn their instrument, children become accustomed to different sounds that they would not have acknowledged before. This practice introduces their ears to the subtle sounds of language.
- It makes them academically stronger. Links have been found between music lessons and nearly every measure of educational achievement: SAT scores, reading comprehension, and math skills.
IQ increase. Numerous studies have confirmed that children’s IQs enhance because of even a few weeks of music lessons. Brain scan technology reveals that brain activity improves following musical training, and some parts of the brain even grow.
- It teaches discipline. Music lessons require hours of attention and patience. Children must continue even when things aren’t going well…an invaluable skill for all areas of life.
- It supports muscle development and motor skills. Children must use their entire bodies to hold the rhythm when they play. They also must coordinate different movements with their hands at the same time. In doing so, they develop strength and coordination.
- It improves social skills. If children play in a group, they have to learn to work together to accomplish a shared goal, exercising tolerance, patience, and encouragement towards their peers.
- It makes kids feel good about themselves. There’s nothing quite like the sense of pride that comes from working on a new skill …specifically when the result is beautiful music.
- It helps kids understand the culture. By learning music from various parts of the globe, students come to understand these cultures.
- It brings happiness. And the most meaningful reason of all. When children can play music, it makes them happy.
