Musician offering entry-level tutoring for young people wanting to learn the Bass Guitar.

Methodology

I am a self-taught musician and the way I learnt how to play was to instead of referring to each fret on the instrument as a note which can sometimes be confusing to a newcomer, I would give each fret a number. The amount of numbers I would give would depend on how many frets the instrument has. So for example, on my current Bass Guitar, it has 24 frets so the first fret would be number 1, the second would be number 2, then number 3 right the way to 24. This would apply for each string of the instrument. After I did that, I would then follow tablature for a song that uses numbers instead of notes. When I've been asked to teach family members or friends of the family and their children to play an instrument, that's how I've done it and those people are now well on their way to becoming great musicians.

Experience

I have been playing the Bass Guitar for eight years and now currently in a Band that has released a debut album and well on the way to creating a second one. I can offer tutoring for people wanting to learn a variety of different genres of music (e.g. Heavy Metal, Rock, Blues etc.). I can also offer a huge amount of tutoring on how to fix and look after an instrument (e.g. correct cleaning techniques, changing strings etc.). I am able to provide my own equipment if needs be.
