What our students are saying...
"Studying bass with Zoltan really enlightens your musical mind. I wasn’t shown ‘patterns’ or ‘licks’ that were supposed to fit here and there, quite the opposite. I was shown how different musical structures were formed, how to have control of the entire range of my instrument and so much more. I’ve learnt a vast amount about the instrument and its place in different scenarios. As I aspire to become a professional musician I feel that Zoltan is helping me create a foundation that I can rely on for the rest of my working career. Not to mention he has a couple good jokes up his sleeve!"
