I base my classes on teaching groove patterns, scales and arpeggios and then perhaps look at some songs that relate to the lesson itself. I like to set students on their journey of finger style bass. I also like to encourage creativity and teach students how to compose their own bass lines.
Lessons are currently being held on Zoom or Skype given the current climate. Other options can be looked at when things are looking better.
I have been a touring bassist for many years, and have played in projects ranging from rock, funk, dub, ska, punk, gypsy, and pop. I like to teach bass in a way that is easy to understand, with focus on technique, groove and the ability to understand the fundamental elements of music theory.
Arvin is unbelievably talented and also one of the most patient and kind people I have ever met (which was great for me)
He works at a pace you are comfortable and also has a Ba honours music technology which means he has a deep understanding of music.
Arvin has been helping me with my scales. And has shown great patience as I develop my skills. His lessons have been fun as well as informative, and I am honoured to be receiving tuition from such a professional musician.
I was a complete beginner on bass when I started lessons with Arvin. Not only does he make the lesson an extremely fun and engaging experience, he also explains things very clearly. I went in expecting to learn a few basslines, but I now have a grasp of music theory that I would have never expected. He breaks things down in a clear way that makes everything seem so simple. Would definitely recommend.
Arvin is a professional bass player of the highest calibre. You will be mesmerised by his mastery and technique, whether it's with a pic or finger style. Wanna learn funky basslines? The speed with which he can alternate styles through the bars and strings will leave you hypnotised. Highly recommended.
Arvin with a bass guitar is like Skywalker with a light sabre! He could have taught Flea how to play bass.
