Enjoy learning Double Bass

Powerful, yet tender, the bass controls the direction of a band. Whether taking care of the low end in an orchestra or at the centre of a big band, the bass is akin to the accelerator in a car. Put your foot down or let it up, its effect is as important as fuel to an engine!

Every band needs a bass player – it brings an essential structure and rhythm that is vital to the other musicians, as well as being hugely appreciated by the audience.

With performance being at the heart of our learning, we encourage our young bass players to develop valuable playing skills. Students will be able to gain a great sense of freedom, and a better feel for their instrument by playing with others. With this in mind, we encourage all of our bass players to attend our jazz classes and to join our 51st State Band, as well as the wonderful variety of World Heart Beat classical and contemporary ensembles.
