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.

Bass is a great instrument for older children to begin with. Due to the size of the instrument, and the weight of the strings being heavier, younger children will not be able to work with the bass comfortably. If students are interested in playing with groups such as a school jazz band, the bass is a great option.
