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.
Musika offers customized one-on-one music lessons in your home - a smart and simple solution for busy parents and students. The convenience of in-home lessons allows you to save time without having to transport your child (and their heavy bass guitar) to class, allows your child to maximize their busy schedule, and provides a safe and familiar environment in which to learn.
Each lesson is tailored to the students individual needs. No one teaching method is used by all teachers, and while some instructors will recommend certain method books, the lessons will be taught depending on the needs of the student. All lessons will cover aspects of how to technically play the instrument, how to work on overall musicianship skills, and how to read music. If the student has any personal goals, the teacher will work with them on that as the lessons progress!

Bass lessons are a great option for teenage students. By playing bass, students open themselves up to be able to play in ensembles such as jazz band, and other more contemporary groups. Older children and teenagers work better with the bass as it is a large instrument with heavy, thick strings which require hand strenth to play.
