Bass Lessons

What’s the #1 reason to study Bass at The Kitchener Academy of Music?

Our bass instructors are warm and friendly, and get to know each student and parent on a personal level. We work with you to craft a lesson plan that fits your individual needs and the student’s favorite type of music. Whether you’re playing in local bands, a seven year old taking their first lesson, or a fifty year old returning to the bass after many years, we’ll set goals to achieve your musical aspirations.

We teach all styles, from rock, pop and jazz to country, blues and classical.

Our lessons are all one-on-one, and targeted towards what you want to learn!

How qualified are your instructors?

Here at TKAM, we only hire the best bass instructors! Our instructors all have

formal music education, and lessons are rooted in proper technique and theory. 

What will I learn from Bass lessons at The Kitchener Academy of Music?

Beginner bass students can expect to work on chords, simple songs and melodies,

sight reading and theory. Our instructors balance musicianship and fun by making

sure that each lesson presents a new technical challenge or theory concept, and ends

with something fun, such as your favorite riff or song. We use a variety of bass method books,

and encourage students to bring their smartphone or music to their lesson to learn their favourite tunes.

Do I need to know how to read music?

Not at all! Beginners are welcome, and your teachers will teach you everything you need to know in your lessons.
