Bass Lessons

Why study Bass at National Music Academy?

We customise our lessons to your aspirations and teach you the skills you need to know to become better at your instrument. Music is more than simply learning a riff or chords. Learning the rules of music so you can apply them means you’ll learn faster and understand what you are playing.

Firstly, our philosophy is to offer tailored tuition that is inspiring and focussed on YOUR passions, goals and musical interests. We will meet you where you are right now and work towards the outcome you desire. We do not believe in a pre-formulated teaching program as every person is different, learns at a different pace, has different goals and responds differently to teaching styles. Music is such a source of enjoyment in people’s lives and we certainly work towards making your lesson just as enjoyable and inspiring.

We meet students everyday that have learnt a million songs but don’t know the fundamentals of how it all works. Imagine trying to learn a language but not knowing what a verb is? Sure, you may be able to communicate basic phrases but you’ll never really learn the language fluently.

Our lessons are inspiring, fun, have incredible content and our customised and focussed lessons assist students in progressing faster. We incorporate a balance of playing, reading, theory, technique and improvisation into our lessons.


What We Teach


Bass guitar is often the backbone of a great band, working hand and glove with the drummer to drive a song forward and give it that extra spark. Rhythm is one of the key components of music and while many lead guitarists focus on melody, rhythm is added by the bass guitarist who provides that steady pulse we all know and love! During your lessons you will learn how to perfect your rhythm and to bring music to life in a band environment; as well as learn different forms and techniques typical of different styles.

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, 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 guitar, technical ability, create a performance repertoire or prepare for a variety of auditions.

Our Approach


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.

We work together with the you to create an individual lesson plan which focuses on structuring lessons and mentoring (coaching) to help you realise your musical goals, however big or small they may be.
