Our online double bass lessons are open to beginner, intermediate, and advanced students of all ages. Our teachers work with you on the day and time of your choosing for you to enjoy lessons in the comfort of your own home. All lessons are taught in English.
Join the Conservatory to start online double bass lessons any time of the year. Below is information about what we offer, how to sign up, and valuable resources for beginners.
About the Double Bass
The double bass, the largest and lowest-pitched member of the string instrument family, produces deep and resonant tones, providing a foundational and rich underpinning to various musical genres.
It is possible to learn double bass from a very young age with a 1/16-size instrument. However, it is recommended to start the double bass around 7 or 8 years old as it is a very large instrument. It is, of course, possible to start the double bass at an older age.
All of our teachers hold university degrees specifically in their instrument. We selected them for their passion for music and care for teaching. They are always encouraging and positive, catering to each student’s interests, desires, and goals. We teach with an “American Approach” to music education with your hands on the instrument from the first day (read our blogpost about the American Approach).
Online Double Bass Lessons Options
We offer 30-minute, 45-minute or 1-hour weekly lessons. Online double bass lessons take place on the day and time you choose.
What We You Learn
Online double bass lessons will include working on the technique (bowing, fingering, correct position), exploring a diverse repertoire, developing performance skills, ear training and music theory. If you do not have a double bass yet, please see the useful resources below.
Styles of Music
All styles of music are taught: classical, pop, jazz, rock, etc.
Before you sign up, our admissions team is available to speak about your personal musical goals and desires and to answer any questions you may have.
The Conservatory prepares about 25% of our student body for optional ABRSM exams. These exams are not mandatory.
ABRSM exams are designed to motivate students of all levels and ages, giving them realistic goals and tangible rewards for their achievements. Since 1889, ABRSM has provided music teachers and their students with exams and assessments that nurture and evaluate an individual’s performance and progress. To learn the complete details of these exams, please visit www.abrsm.org or read our blog post.
