Bass Lessons

I teach pupils of all ages and abilities in a fun and relaxed learning environment.

I use carefully selected pieces of music to teach different aspects of the bass guitar to students. This makes learning fun while at the same time relevant to the nature of the bass.

Over the period of lessons you can hope to cover:

– Sight-reading

– Technique

– Scales

– Improvisation

– Tone

– The mechanics of a bass & just about anything else you want to know…

“Bass lessons have been great – inspiring, enjoyable but also providing great foundations…  We’ve seemed to be able to cover the technique and theory without resorting to dry exercises, using the  examples from great bass lines, so you’re learning whilst playing – eg. “What Stevie Wonder can teach us about the major pentatonic”… He’s taken a lot of time to tailor the lessons to what I’ve wanted to achieve. We’ve used suggested songs for technique, but also complemented this by using the numbers our band are working on to develop other skills – sight reading, picking out and recreating a bass line by ear, improvisation… from complete beginner to developing as a performer – everything from Rage Against the Machine to a classic 12 bar Blues. Would highly recommend!” – Nicola Fawcette

Ukulele Lessons

Why learn ukulele?

Whether you’re a beginner or you’ve been playing for a while, ukulele  is a great introduction to music and the world of guitar.

Particularly suited to kids (with their small hands) it’s a fun way to learn all of your favourite songs.

It’s also a great way to learn some of the foundations that make music, such as harmony and rhythm.

“I love learning uke with Josh because he makes playing fun and we get to play songs I really like.” – Nuala (age 8)

“I think Josh is a great teacher because he gets my daughter excited about playing, by letting her choose music she likes, and his rewards scheme for practice really works!” – Eve

“Learning with Josh is fun – I’ve learned loads of new stuff like new chords and how to hold the ukulele properly. I definitely recommend him to anyone else willing to learn new stuff about the ukulele.” – Alex (age 13)
