Content and Overview

I designed this program to help you continue your musical journey on the bass in the most efficient and fun way. This program is suitable for anyone who has a desire to play and has a working bass.

The layout of the course uses a simple format:

  • 1 lesson video that explains a new concept/technique,
  • 1 practice video that has voice overs and graphics to help you play along with the teacher on the screen in "real time".

There are twelve sets of lessons and practice videos that help you learn melody, rhythm, harmony, and improvising. This program also contains a "Jam Room" with a virtual band that you can play along with at different speeds.

At the end of this course you will have the confidence to play the bass both on your own and with others in different musical situations.

The course project

Use the "Jam Room" Videos to practice the song with a virtual band.  Upload a video of you playing with the music coach song with the Jam Room band, and share it with the class.  Upload your file to Google Drive, Youtube, Vimeo, or any other hosting service.
