The StudyBass Approach
StudyBass is for bass creators—bassists who want to use the bass in a creative, original way.
Anyone can learn to play other peoples' basslines and bass solos. Does learning to recite a poem make you a poet? No! And, that's where StudyBass is different...
The goal of StudyBass is to educate you on how music works and how to create your own basslines and solos, not just to parrot those of others.
Bass—The Misunderstood Instrument
Bass is a unique instrument. Unfortunately, it is often taught the same way as other instruments causing lots of needless confusion for the student.
Even good lessons are ineffective when presented to the student in the wrong order or at the wrong point in his or her development.
On StudyBass I've organized and paced my bass lessons based on seeing hundreds of students learn to play the bass.
What Does StudyBass Cover?
Technique, Harmony, Rhythm, Music Reading, All Styles, Fretboard Note Names, and there's lots more on the way.
I've been teaching private bass lessons since 1993.
I've taught tens of thousands of lessons to over 2000 students.
In 2003, I started developing StudyBass—my dream of the best bass lessons on the net.
Everything you see on StudyBass was created by me. I think you'll see my passion and commitment to help you become a great musician and bassist.
I love music. I love the bass. And, I love teaching it to you.
