BASS LESSONS: ONLINE OR ON-SITE
REGULAR OR FLEXIBLE
Bass lessons from a professional with a clear approach, fun, and nearly 20 years of experience.
Do you want to play the bass in a band and quickly and effectively learn the necessary “know-how“? Have you discovered the bass instrument for yourself or would you like to refresh or expand your existing knowledge? No matter if you’re young or old, beginner or already advanced, rocker, blues or jazz musician, the lessons are based on your individual skills, learning progress, preferences and goals! Together we’ll work out short and long term goals and I want to help make you a little better with each class.

WHAT IS TAUGHT?
Lessons for electric bass / double bass. All music styles are covered in class from rock to pop; blues, funk and Latin through to jazz. The lessons consist of the following areas: rhythm, technique, improvisation, developing your own grooves, practical tips, sight-reading, theory, ear training and of course playing, playing, playing!!! In addition to the basics, more specific techniques can also be addressed, such as slapping. The role of the bass player in the band and general tips on how to play with others can also be discussed, as can questions about equipment etc. The ultimate focus is based on the student’s preferences.
WHERE / HOW WILL YOU BE TAUGHT?
Online lessons have been available for years, but really broke through due to Corona. Reservations such as: “That’s definitely very complicated with the technology” or “You’ll learn a lot less there” have vanished into thin air, such that some students who previously had “on-site” lessons now regularly continue online. I now have online students around the world. In the picture you can see me in class with Aakash in Mumbai / India.
Classes take place in Essen – Bergerhausen at Muldeweg 12 and can be easily reached by car and various public transport options. Currently, when the city isn’t under lockdown, lessons take place at a distance and with „mouth and nose protection“ so as to give Corona no chance.
The two options can be combined. For example, you can opt for “on-site” lessons and, during a particularly stressful week, save yourself the journey and simply take an „online“ lesson.
In this video I talk about my life as a musician. It’s in German. I’m working on an English version, but I also play bass in the video, a language everybody understands. 🙂
In this video you can see how I teach online.
HOW OFTEN ARE LESSONS?
I recommend 45 minutes per week for individual lessons and 60 minutes for double lessons. In almost all cases, this timing has worked out well. Naturally, other timeframes are also possible by arrangement. For students who are ambitious about studying at a university (or similar), it can make sense to increase the teaching time to 90 minutes a week.
THE TEACHER: ANDREAS REINHARD
Andreas Reinhard is a graduate of the Professional Program at FMS Aschaffenburg and studied pop and jazz at the Arnhem University of the Arts (NL). Andreas has been a professional bass player for 20 years. As a freelancer, he has played countless concerts and shows in clubs, halls, on radio and TV from Germany to China. He is happy to pass on his musical know-how and enthusiasm for music. As a bass coach and music teacher, he can look back on many years of experience in teaching, workshops and band coaching. Andreas knows where there is typically a problem within a topic and where the solutions can be found.
