It's all about the bass!

The bass guitar is the foundational instrument in practically every genre of music from rock and pop to hip hop and dance music. Explore the ins and outs (and highs and lows) of the bass guitar while learning how to play your favorite songs!

Beginning Students will…

  • fundamental mechanics of playing the bass
  • how to read music notation and or bass tablature
  • how to navigate the fretboard
  • major, minor, and pentatonic scales
  • bass lines from popular songs

Once you have a strong foundational knowledge and your skills progress on the bass, you and your instructor will move on to more intermediate level material such as creating walking bass lines and more complex songs and arrangements.

When To Start Bass Lessons

Bass students typically start at age 8 and up. It’s never too late to learn! If you’re well into adulthood now is the perfect time to pick up that bass, take some lessons, and start jamming.

What students and parents are saying about lessons at Centre Music House:

"My daughter Emma looks forward to her weekly piano lesson with Lauren, it’s one of the highlights of her week. Lauren is doing a great job engaging Emma and making piano fun."

- Bethany L. (Parent)


"Don't be deceived by its small size, they have what you need in music, instruments, mics, service, strings, lessons, etc. I drove by this place so many times in the past 3 years, and wish I had taken the time to visit earlier instead of driving to Newton or getting things online."

- MaryAnne T. (Student)

"Great piano lessons for our 5 year old daughter. Erin is excellent and teaches all ages and is great with children. We have been so lucky to have lessons during a time where we need something to look forward to and offer some structure for little ones to express themselves and grow."

- Shelly A. (Parent)
