Bass Lessons for All Ages & Musical Styles
There are as many approaches to teaching music as there are music studios. Not every approach is right for every student. Music At Your Door seeks to develop well-rounded musicians with solid fundamental skills, in a context that’s also fun and inspiring. Below are three principles that guide our approach.
Our Approach to Bass at Music At Your Door Get Started
Bass Lessons Should Be Fun!
We all know the feeling: you hear your favorite song come on and you can’t resist the urge to play along on your air bass! Here at Music At Your Door, we can help you convert your musical fantasies into reality – while preserving that irresistible sense of joy you feel when playing along. We want each of our students to LOVE their musical experience with us!
Whether you come to us planning on becoming the next Flea or simply wanting to play songs around the campfire with your friends, our top-notch instructors will help you progress quickly toward your goals while ensuring you have fun along the way.
We Emphasize Healthy Technique
Regardless of your ultimate goals, our teachers will prioritize strong fundamentals including proper posture, hand positioning, chords, fretting, picking, and strumming. As students progress, these basics will become second nature – and serve as the foundation from which students can apply their skills across a variety of genres and styles.
We want our bass students to be literate, well-rounded musicians. Beginners and seasoned performers alike will find value in our approach at Music At Your Door, coupling technical instruction with elements of music theory and music history in each lesson.

Your unique interests and background will help guide your experience at Music At Your Door. We teach beginners, intermediate, and advanced students who are interested in a variety of styles – including rock, jazz, classical, pop, blues, and more. Whether you’re inspired by modern day singer-songwriters or the rockers of the 1970s, we can’t wait to get started with you!
Our seasoned instructors will draw upon years of playing, performing, and teaching experience to guide you in improving your skills and exploring the many possibilities of your instrument, and advancing toward your goals at a pace that works for you.

Frequently Asked QuestionsGet Started
What’s the right age to start bass guitar lessons?
We often hear from parents who want to know what age a child should be before starting bass guitar lessons. Great question! We generally are happy to start students in music instruction around age 6, but the bass has some special considerations. Playing the bass guitar is not especially complicated, but the physical dimensions of the instrument are a factor. Bass guitars are big and fairly heavy. Additionally, the heavy gauge of the strings (compared to smaller instruments like guitars or ukuleles) poses a challenge for small fingers with less developed muscles. And a student needs to be able to reach the end of the bass’s neck without straining. For these reasons, we generally don’t recommend starting bass lessons until at least age eight or nine. It’s going to depend on a child’s physical development, too. If you’re not sure, we are happy to consult with you and help determine if your child is ready to start.
Do I have to know how to read music?
No. Beginners are welcome! Our lesson plans aim to educate, engage and inspire students.
What styles of bass can I learn?
One of the most valuable things we can offer as a music school is experience. We bring teachers from around the globe to speak to all different kinds of music. With such diverse backgrounds in bass, our teachers can support your exploration of any number of styles of music.
What materials will I need?
With personally customized lesson plans, every student will have unique materials to support their music education. Once you and your instructor have discussed your short and long term goals for music lessons, they will provide you with a complete list of tools, including books, online resources, and more.
