The bass guitar, or simply bass, is the lowest pitched member of the guitar family.  It is a plucked string instrument similar in appearance and construction to an acoustic or electric guitar, but with a longer neck and scale length.  This instrument has largely replaced the double bass in popular music since the mid-1950s.  It is played primarily with the fingers or thumb.  To be heard at normal performance volumes, electric bass guitars require external amplification.

We offer individualized instruction to each student.  Musicianship, reading, technique, chords, strumming patterns, finger-picking, and theory are included in lessons.  Guitar lessons are offered to students of at least 5 years of age.  All levels welcome!
