Electric Bass Lessons (Pop, Blues, Rock Funk & Jazz)

My name is Minas. I've worked as a professional musician since I finished high school, playing live with bands of different genres and recording original music with several groups. I've also toured with my band in Greece, northern Europe and the UK several times. I studied in a music high school and then continued with double bass classes in a local concervatory and then in the State Conservatory before moving to the Netherlands to continue my studies on electric bass. Here I continue to play in two bands, composing and recording original material.
When teaching electric bass, my main target is for the student to understand the philosophy behind the bass and its role in a band. Certain techniques are explored and we focus on harmony, creating bass lines and playing solo. The lessons plan is shaped depending on the student's needs and interests.

About Me

I believe positive energy is very important in the learning process! I keep a positive encouraging attitude towards the student, trying to come closer to him/her instead of building distance by being formal.
Communication is the key to get to know a student's needs. It's important for me to know what they're interested in and what they want to learn instead of overwhelming them with information.
Although I've spent years learning through playing covers and studying the great bass players and artists I admire, I always strive to focus on composing original music and I hope to inspire my students to do the same.

CUSTOM MADE BASS CLASSES AND TO YOUR RHYTHM (FINGERS, PUA, SLAP, TAPPING)
Whether you are just starting to play or have experience with the electric bass and want to take it to another level, you are in the right place. Also if you play 5 or 6 string bass. In my classes I use a hybrid system. I have a method specifically created by me, but I also work more freely adapting to your needs and tastes. You will have total freedom to express your doubts so that we can solve them. Working in a more methodological or freer way will depend exclusively on you and what your interests are. All the material that we work on will always be applied to practical cases, using songs where we can practice the different concepts explained. As for musical styles, we can work from Funk, Jazz, Blues, Reggea, Latin through Pop, Alternative, Rock to Metal, Progressive, Symphonic Rock among others. Alongside that we can immerse ourselves in the world of effects and know how to use them to get the most out of it if you are also interested. All the documents that we use will be provided by me, as well as the possibility of having them in PDF format. We will also work with a multitude of backing tracks so that you can play on top of them and be able to apply what you have learned in an enjoyable way. SLAP, TAPPING, CHORDS I also teach classes on these specific electric bass techniques. PS: If you are one of those who have started with YouTube tutorials, then there is no problem. You should not give it up. Moreover, we will reinforce your knowledge so that you can make the most of it and get the most out of it.

Rhythm – Timing precision/freedom, polyrhythms, odd meters, and coordination. Improvisation – How to improvise melodically over different chord schemes but also broader aspects such as building and breaking tension waves and telling an artistic story. Song Learning - Just learn how to play your favorite song and jam with your favorite bands

Marta
Bass guitar lessons for every level and age by an experienced teacher
My bass lessons are for people of all levels from beginners to pre-conservatory level. In the lessons we talk about essential sides of bass playing - so technique, timing, awareness of rhythm and harmony. And that in connection with different music styles: pop, rock, funk, jazz, hip-hop, electronica. For anyone who has ambitions to continue, I also treat: solfège, music theory, auditory theory, polyrhythms. What exactly we are going to do in class will therefore differ per student, depending on his / her needs and wishes.
