This course is for our younger students, where they will have fun learning classic rock songs from Jimmy Hendrix, The Police, The Beatles, U2 and many others.

The simple and easy to understand course will enable kids to learn faster and help them focus on one or two new ideas each lesson.

You will learn basic skills to get you started such as how to hold the bass guitar, tune the bass guitar, hand technique and learn about all the parts that make a bass guitar.

The best way to get better on the bass guitar is to play along to songs. You will learn how to jam along to songs, just like being in a band and learn some cool riffs and rhythms.
