Learn to Play the Bass Guitar

Bass guitar playing requires a good amount of strength, flexibility, and precision in the hands that nobody possesses initially. Py Rock guitar instructors always remind the students of bad habits and encouraging them to practice appropriately so that they can develop the strength and flexibility to truly play the bass guitar beautifully.

General Questions

The characteristics of our bass lessons are the following:

  • Students apply the music theory in songs that the students like. This helps faster learnings.
  • Bass guitar instructors create different versions of the songs in order to match the students' pace. This allows the students to be able to play any song, no matter the difficulty of the original version.
  • Our well-structured bass guitar lessons help the students master intonation in a dynamic and fun way.

While every child is different, it’s generally a good idea to wait until your child is at least six years old before starting bass guitar lessons. These are the main factors to consider:

  • Motivation: If your child is the one expressing a strong interest in the bass guitar, it will help overcome the difficulties that will arrive while taking bass guitar lessons with the instructor.
  • Size of hand: Before beginning bass guitar lessons, we need to make sure your child’s hands have grown enough to be comfortable using a bass guitar.
  • Finger independence: Is your child able to move each finger independently without moving the others? When taking bass guitar lessons, the bass guitar instructor will require the students to stretch single fingers to reach certain frets.

The students come to our bass guitar lessons once a week for a 30-minute private session. We are open during the following days:

  • Mondays to Fridays, from 3:00 pm to 9:00 pm.
  • Saturdays from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm.
  • Every show we have 18 bands
  • Sundays: Exact availabilities vary by school location. Please ask your local PY Rock location for details.

Beginner bass guitar student playing



We have a new approach to bass lessons. We first set the student on private bass lessons, and once they reach a certain level, they can audition to be part of one of our rock bands! Not only the bass lessons are fun on their own, but they can positively influence the lives of the kids with all the benefits from taking music lessons such as developing discipline, teamwork, and self-confidence. Beginner bass lessons cover topic such as; the role of the bass, holding the bass, fretting, breaking bad habits and more.

After you have been taking bass lessons for a while, you might find yourself no longer feeling the magic when you pick up your bass guitar. Sounds that used to get you fired up when playing with your bass intructor just aren't there anymore. At this point, is time to go further into topics that are more challenging for you. On our bass lessons for intermediate players, students learn topics such as; keys in music, circle of fifths, hammer-ons, pull-offs and more. We also recommend the players to audition for one of our rock band programs where they see a remarkable increase in motivation.

Our advanced bass lessons instructors have a deep understanding of techniques and equipment.
