Double bass tutor wanted south east london

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hi there,

I'm new to the world of bass and basschat so some friendly advice will be much appreciated!

I want to get my boyfriend a double bass lesson to surprise him for his birthday. He's turning 45 and has been playing Jazz on the electric bass for 10 years now, he wanted to test out the double bass to see how it is, but he won't have a DB of his own to practise on. We live in SE London but I'm sure he wouldn't be too adverse to travelling a little. Is there any good tutors around that might have a spare double bass for their students that you guys might know?  

Thanks! Jade

Chris Kelly is based in SE and teaches double bass, not sure if he'll have a spare instrument but worth a try:

IIRC Dave Swift, Jools Holland's Bassist, was offering one-to-one lessons.

He's a member here (swiftbass) and on Indeed.
