As you look into buying an instrument for bass lessons, you will want to keep in mind what your goals are. If you are a beginner who is going to be starting off with the basics, a standard 4 string bass will be what you need for lessons. You can choose from brands such as Gibson, Fender, or Ibanez. If you are usuing the bass for a specific purpose such as heavy metal, or hard rock music, you may want to look into purchasing a 5 string bass, which will give you access to lower notes used in these genres.

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.
