A choice that students have when buying a bass is going with either a 4 string bass or a 5 string bass. A 5 string will be most useful if you are interested in heavy metal or hard rock music, as it will allow you to reach lower pitches. As a beginner student, a 4 string bass is a good option. Reliable brands for instruments are Ibanez, Gibson, and Fender.

We recommend that children 10 and older begin bass lessons. The bass is a large instrument that has heavy, thick strings. Hand strength is required to be able to play the isntrument successfully, and many of the youngest students will have difficulty with this. By playing bass, older students will also have the opportunity to participate in contemporary playing ensembles such as school jazz bands, and more rock styled groups.
