Bass courses and lessons

  • You have online bass courses and lessons on your site. What is the difference between courses and lessons?

Courses are a group of lessons that all cover a particular topic. The lessons in a course are set out in logical sections so that you can work through an entire course at your leisure. Individual lessons on the other hand are each individual areas to work on separate to each other.

  • If I am working through a course at my own speed, is it possible to mark where I'm up to?

When you work through a course, you can mark lessons as "Completed" so that you know which areas you have worked on. If you want to go back and concentrate on a lesson, you can mark it as "Incomplete" so that it can be easily found and picked up again.

  • How are the courses and lessons delivered?

The courses and lessons are delivered by video. There are also supporting playalongs and sheet music to help with the learning.

  • Is it possible to easily jump to sections of the videos?

Along the "timeline" of the videos, you will see markers. If you click on a marker you will jump to that section of the video. There is also a "Chapters" menu option available which lists the sections of the video. Selecting a chapter from the list will take you directly to that section.

  • You mention sheet music is available. Do I need to be able to read music to take your courses? 

No, not at all. The ability to read music is definitely a strength that will add to your musical knowledge and will expand your playing horizons, but it is not a requirement to be able to learn from the courses and lessons.
