About Me

Fred, Swiss musician, composer, bass player
Fred, bassist-composer-producer, was born in Geneva in 1974.
He starts the electric bass at the age of 16 and creates with his brother the group "Swiss Cheese Connection" which released the album "Deep in the funk" on their own label "Chiz Records". In 1998, Fred began composing his own music producing Hip Hop beats. In 1999, he and his brother formed the SUMO group. Fred composes and produces the music of 4 Sumo albums: "Before the Sun", "Rise" "Over the Beat" and "Galactika", and 8 maxy-vinyls.
Fred is mainly influenced by "black music" and likes to mix rhythms and styles. As a teenager, he listens to a lot of funk, Georges Clinton is one of his references in the field, but is also rocked by hardcore Bad Brains. Public Enemy, the Beastie Boys are part of its flagship groups. At the age of 20, he made a trip to Havana and immersed himself in Cuban music. He particularly likes rhythmic finesse.
From funk, he discovers house, then more generally electronic music. Fred uses sounds like colors and his music easily evokes a visual landscape. The title "Limpid" was selected by Fashion TV on the compilation "Spring-Summer 2001". The title "Roby" is mixed by masters of house music like Deep Dish. The track "Distant Love" is played by Gilles Peterson on his "Worldwide" show. The song "On The Life Line" wins the contest "The Island Job" and enjoys a clip shot in the Dominican Republic, sponsored by Bacardi.
In addition to the composition, Fred plays bass in other formations, in various styles. He has played with groups such as Anabaena (jazz), Maciré Sylla (African music) and Stevans (pop-rock). He likes the stage and the alchemy that is created by playing between musicians, as he likes to create music in his studio with his samplers and other instruments.

Learn the bass differently and intuitively
This course is above all there to make you want to play the bass, let it be a pleasure! It will be based on the practice of the instrument, on the understanding and the role of the bass. The theory will depend on the progress of the practice. Step by step, practice and theory will thus be complementary, and will necessarily serve!

PRIVATE Music Lessons: electric bass, improvisation, composition, music theory.
The class I propose as a private teacher cover the following subjects: -Bass Guitar: we will cover elements such as technique (from basic to advanced), groove, timing, soloing, creating catchy basslines in different genres (Jazz, Pop, Rock, Funk, World Music, etc..) -Improvisation: idiomatic (related to music-genre) and non-idiomatic -Composition and Music theory: study of harmony, scales, melody, creative musical-writing. All these subjects are interconnected in the lesson! N.B. IMPROVISATION, COMPOSITION AND MUSIC THEORY ARE OPEN TO ALL INSTRUMENTALISTS!! The first lesson with a new student is always an opportunity for the student to express what he likes about music. During the first lesson I usually propose my favorite music to the new student, and the the student does the same. The first lesson is the first approach in knowing each other, so that I can tailor a study programme that fits perfectly my student. By developing the just-mentioned study programme I guarantee that practice is linked to pleasure, cuoriosity and discover! Regular practice is also ensured by giving the student exciting and challenging assignments, that at the same time are doable. In this way I guarantee both satisfaction and challenge.

Guitar/Bass/Ukulele Lessons! Over 15 years teaching experience
My main teaching philosophy is to teach students to play the music they enjoy. It sounds like a no-brainer but I have had teachers in the past who only showed me songs that they enjoyed or used method books that teach you "Mary Had A Little Lamb" or "Hot Crossed Buns" (and if you like those songs then we can learn those). All that to say, whatever the student's goal on the instrument, I will take them step by step until they reach it. For a beginning musician, the fundamentals of the instrument are given the highest priority: how to tune your instrument, names of all the notes, essential chords, basic strumming, playing in time and understanding basic rhythm. For someone who already plays but needs a little help getting out of the rut, we'll spend time fixing bad technical habits, hammering home the fundamentals, expanding their repertoire, and slowly moving outside of the comfort zone to new horizons. With advanced players, listening (ear training), transcribing, song analysis, exploring advanced theory concepts, and focusing on composition and improvisation are most important. With all levels of students, I make playlists that I update after each lesson they can hear real examples of what we are covering, as well as provide detailed written notes in TAB and standard notation so they can refer to everything we covered and know what to practice. Also, it's fun!
