Online Bass Lessons
Bass lessons for all ages and abilities, with a focus on the style of music you love.
Whether you are a seasoned player or a complete beginner, I will work with you to tailor a comprehensive syllabus focused around your musical goals and ambitions, with a strong foundation of essential musical theory.
Slap, fingerstyle, plectrum and palm muting; all techniques can be covered, as well as sight reading, scales and modes, ear training, critical listening and performance skills.
Just want to focus on one genre or player? Not a problem - I can create in depth case studies of particular bands, techniques or bassists.
All you need is your instrument, your laptop or phone and an internet connection. I have Zoom fully setup with my interface so I can provide you with high quality audio, and you are welcome to record our lessons to watch back at a later date.
Credits include performances at 2000 Trees Festival, Edinburgh Fringe Festival, The Great Escape Festival and BBC Radio sessions, as well as several international tours and soundtrack work for film and television including Sky and Aardman Animations.

I look forward to hearing from you.
I'm a professional bassist based in London (not that location matters at the moment) with many years of diverse experience. I've a high-quality home setup for giving online lessons, via Skype or preferably Zoom, and am a patient and articulate teacher. 🙂
I'm happy to teach pretty much any aspect of electric bass playing. You will particularly benefit from lessons with me if you're interested in:
-- applying theory and harmonic understanding to your basslines and solos
-- developing a reliable, consistent, safe and adaptable technique
-- general musicianship
