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 starting bass lessons around age 10, and usually no earlier than age 8. Bass strings are thicker and heavier than guitar strings, so the student's hands must be strong enough to fret the notes, and be able to carry the bass comfortably. The bass is a great instrument for teens, and skills learned during lessons can lead students to playing in school Jazz band.
