skype bass guitar lessons - Learn what you want 

Absolute beginners to aspiring pros welcome....

What I love about teaching is being able to explain a musical idea clearly enough so that someone who previously thought it was difficult can use it to make music. Everything I teach is based on 7 important musical areas - technique, fretboard knowledge, theory, reading, mindset, groove and tunes (expanding your repertoire). There are many more topics to be found within these subjects and I believe that if you improve your knowledge in these areas (even just a little bit) you will get fantastic results. It's all about building a solid foundation from which you can blossom.​

“I will show you what you need to know to become a musician who is able to think for yourself and learn how to improve fast ”.

You can start by heading over and signing up for the newsletter to get the latest free lessons and tips straight to your inbox. You will also receive a free 23-page ebook containing fretboard and chord diagrams, scales, modes and arpeggios you can use in all kinds of creative situations.

Get in touch below to discuss setting up a lesson. We can organise a free session to test the internet connection and talk about what you might want to learn.


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.
