Compared to many other musical instruments, the bass is relatively easy and considerably fun to learn and experiment with because it can create a variety of different rhythms, beats and original sounds. The most important thing about learning the bass is the approach and attitude that the student has when beginning because like anything else in life it takes time, patience and practice to learn. That being said, the best and funnest part about learning bass is that students are able to quickly acquire a few chords and with these, they are able to play familiar country, rock and classical tunes relatively quick. This provides a level of enthusiasm for continuing to learn, helps to build confidence and is the key to developing and improving their bass playing skills.
Bass is an Important Part of Any Band
Next to the amazing power and beat of drums, the bass plays a significant part in any band or orchestra because it can be used to create the central beat or rhythm and helps to keep others musicians in time. It is extremely fun for students and instructors to experiment with this aspect of the instrument and in doing so we have created a few very unique beats of our own using different effects. These skills, along with a focus on developing a stage presence are the kind of tips and tricks that students cannot learn on their own and are the real benefit behind taking bass lessons and the main reason that we highly recommend doing so. Whether you live in Montreal or the surrounding area, get taught by professionals. Students will take their bass playing and performing to heights they never dreamt possible and perhaps could become the next bass superstar.
Development is a Continued Process
Once a student has mastered a few basic chords we encourage them to continue developing and practicing new ones while learning to read music tabs and create different tones, rhythms, sounds and notes with nothing more than a few strumming and picking techniques. Tuning the bass, learning to read music, developing picking and strumming techniques, stage presence, chord development and experimenting with sound effects are just some of the skills that our students acquire during our certified and highly demanded bass lessons. The type of instruction provided by our conservatory in the West Island is based on each individual’s needs, level of skill, the style of music the student is interested in learning and whether he or she will be playing in a band, orchestra or going solo.
