Thinking About Taking Bass Guitar
You are at a crossroads in trying to figure out what lessons to choose at the perfect music school. You know many that have enrolled their child in either piano or guitar lessons, but there is something about the deep tone of the bass guitar that appeals to you. Bass guitar lessons are a great way to learn the essentials of keeping the groove or funk of the band.
Bass Guitar Role
The purpose, function, and importance of the bass players role in a band is important. Forming a band with a bass player ensures that the band's sound is complete. Imagine that meat and potatoes was your favorite dish, but you unknowingly allowed a vegan to prepare it. At first glance, all the main ingredients appear to be present. Then you realize the meat and potatoes have been substituted for tofu and couscous. Obviously, this changes everything! The bass player dictates the harmony of the song and essentially is the meat and potatoes. A band can suddenly go from sounding like jazz or blues, to rock, or reggae once the bass player tweaks the groove by changing the rhythm of the bass line.
Bass Guitar Lessons
At the Franklin Music Academy we have perfected the role of the bassist. In the classroom, we love to introduce musicians to different genres and eras. Music has so much to offer in history and we weave that into each lesson. Beginner musicians will learn to love music and more experienced musicians will be able to take away valuable lessons as well and develop a sound of their own.
All of our music lessons are taught by fun and passionate instructors in a relaxed environment and be taught in a group or private lesson. Students are encouraged to select music they like while learning their instrument. While group lessons are encouraged for beginner musicians, private lessons can also be taken as well at any level.
