Have you been interested in the bass guitar and thinking about lessons for yourself or your child? Best suited for students 8 years and up, the bass is the epitome of rock n’ roll music. Up until modern times, the acoustic/upright bass was the go-to instrument choice for covering lower-range notes. However, with the advent of the rock n’ roll era in the 1950s, the electric bass came to prominence – the acoustic bass needed more “juice” in order to be heard over the banging, clashing drums and the amplified electric guitar!
Since then, the electric bass has become a permanent fixture in bands playing all genres of music. In appearance, the electric bass looks a lot like a guitar. However, it’s longer neck and heavier, thicker strings are its distinguishing marks; additionally, most basses have only 4 strings (unlike the guitar which most commonly has 6 strings). The bass is a wonderful instrument choice for social kids who enjoy working with others and who have aspirations of playing in a band!
