What We Teach
Our experienced teachers are here to teach all aspects of playing Bass, from technique, learning to read music, performance, improvisation, theory, to playing various styles including Rock, Jazz, Blues, Metal, Pop, Country, Classical, Slap and even World Music.
Initially we will complete a comprehensive overview to understand where you are at with your playing and tailor your weekly lessons to suit. We endeavour to introduce a range of technical, theoretical and hands-on performance based content to take your playing to the next level.
In addition to weekly lessons, access to year-round practical workshops, industry masterclasses and performance opportunities, offer a truly comprehensive musical education. The ‘real world approach’ is extremely important to us, as our purpose is to equip you with all the tools and resources necessary for musical success. We also cater to advanced students wishing to master a particular genre of Bass, technical ability, create a performance repertoire or prepare for a variety of auditions.
Our team of specialist teachers are no ordinary Bass guitarists; they each are tertiary trained, amazingly passionate about their art & are all professional gigging musicians with current working with children certification . Our teachers take a holistic, individualised approach to your lessons and are flexible with both content and stylistic aspects of their teaching.
Our comprehensive approach ensures that no matter what age, level or style you wish to learn, National Music Academy has the right teacher for you with access to a network of great Bassists to learn from.
If you would like to hear any of them play and meet them, contact us & we will arrange a time suitable to you.
NMA fosters a culture driven by passion, excellence and genuine care. How do you become great at anything? If you love it, work at it, surround yourself by experts that know it, love it, encourage and inspire you, then becoming great is the natural result! Where traditional music schools commonly offer formulaic, pre-set ‘song per term or lesson’ content in sometimes uninspiring environments, we proudly stick by our ethos to uniquely offer all of our students a holistic education and experience through individual tailored tuition, mentoring, access to workshops and industry masterclasses and gig opportunities all year round.
Immersion is key and by offering students access to the depth and variety of all we offer, the inspiration to learn and improve is natural. Our passion is infectious and our main aim is to equip, encourage and inspire you toward making your musical dream a reality.
Catch a person a fish they are fed for a day, teach them to fish they are fed for life.
This basic philosophy is the keystone within our approach to teaching music. National Music Academy goes past the songs and into the core elements of music, giving you the skills necessary to take your musical ambition as far as you want it to go.
