80 minutes · Once a week for 8 weeks · $248 ($228 members)
Get your blues playing down with one of the mainstays of the Chicago Blues scene.
Learn to hold down the bottom end.
Our group classes focus specifically on the fretted electric bass - a perfect place to comfortably gather crucial basic skills. Beginners can jump right in at level one. During the course of your study, one can expect to cover fundamentals like tone, rhythm, theory and groove. Learn to be able to add a solid bottom to a wide variety of musical styles from blues and bluegrass to rock and pop.
Our private lessons like our group classes run in 8-week sessions, however, you can begin private lessons during any week in the session. Please call our customer service folks at 773.728.6000 to register as private lesson availability is based upon individual teacher schedules.
Lessons are scheduled weekly, for 30, 45 or 60 minutes, and are available every day of the week at our Lincoln Square and Lincoln Park locations. Our experienced and professional faculty will work with you to develop an individualized program that helps you achieve your musical goals.
Stop in at either location or call the front desk at 773.728.6000 to register.
