About this course

Welcome to the XYZ Bass: Debut Course. This course is designed to: give you core knowledge of the bass guitar, help you hone your musical skills and to create a life-long passion for the instrument. 

The course consists of many elements to give you a broad introduction to music. Firstly, this course will show you the correct techniques to use when playing the bass, so that you produce the best possible sound. You will also learn a wide selection of notes, scales and pieces to fully understand how music is put together. It will also show you how to read and write music notation, allowing you to play whatever music you can get your hands on. On top of all of this, you should develop your listening skills so you also have the option of figuring songs out by ear as well.
