Acoustic Bass and Electric Bass Guitar Lessons

We offer both electric bass guitar lessons and upright bass (acoustic, double bass) lessons. Tuition includes our monthly Student/Faculty jam session and Saturday Morning Open Studio time with other students. We have both an electric bass and an acoustic bass on hand with the proper amplifiers at the Jazz and Creative Institute for students to use at sessions and rehearsals. Not interested in strictly jazz? Our faculty are well-versed in many genres, including classical, rock and blues.
