About Dan Hawkins
I've been a working professional bass player for nearly two decades. One of my biggest passions in life is teaching and I started Online Bass Courses to reach bass players eager to improve. I get a real kick out of helping bass players get better and I do that through courses, books, and lessons. Read more about my story here.
What They Say...
Just letting you know my playing is coming on mainly due to your lessons. You are a brilliant musician and an excellent teacher.
Cy O' Hara
You are my Zen master!
l have learned more since I received your book and the other lessons than I learned in twenty years of banging on the bass.
It took me ages to get over my self doubt but I'm an over achiever so that's natural, your inspirational words encouraged me to not give up, thank you. I watch your videos regularly and they are always informative and add another piece to the jigsaw, so thank you.
Your explanation on bass playing is excellent. It is invaluable to me.
Just the motivation I needed to put in more work. Your blog is filled with great materials and videos. Thanks for my first ever Skype lesson!
Dan shows you not just the 'how', but more importantly, the 'why'. To me, that's made the difference from thinking of myself as a someone who plays bass and starting to think like a musician.
