Education Institution The Rhythmic School

On baslinjen will get solo teaching on bass, basworkshop and play bass on an interplay team. In addition there is a wide range of subjects, some shared by all, others are electives. Outside school hours, all of our facilities open so that, for example, can be practiced, played in leisure bands or made studio recordings.

You will get to work with different techniques such as left / high hand technique, how to get a good sound / sound and scale technique so you can find around on the bass. Groove is obviously an important part, and as a solo game / improvisation and chords have become part of the playing bass, you also need to work with it.

There is a module with a basworkshop in all common schema weeks. Here are all bass players gathered in a workshop where technical and musical problems of any kind can be addressed. In addition to general technical tools provide course also a fine yield on the social level, because you get a great opportunity to teach your "instrument-colleagues" better to know, ie I have a good understanding to help and inspire each other. The course changes character several times during the semester and also offers great workshops in the hall for all instrument lines.

Individual lessons
On bass we work with technology (fingering, hand position, sound, etc.), groove / hour, chords and improvisation / theory, and we will work with the very different roles in the music of bassist. Work with notes and chord symbols, but also what it means to learn music "on ear". Listening numbers or solos and use the ideas in a different context or own numbers, is a great method to learn to understand the potential of the instrument. It is very inspiring and probably the most important tool of all.

Solo Tuition is of course based on your level. Moreover, it is also important to organize the teaching in relation to your activities also on the interplay team and in extracurricular bands at the school. The intention is to give you the best opportunities to test methods and ideas from the solo classes in an actual ensemble situation. To get inspiration and "tasted blood" to go ahead with the music.

Ensemble Teaching is one of the hubs of the school and therefore an important part of bassists. This is where you can collect and use many of the skills you have and which one gets from the other subjects (eg. Private lessons, theory, improvisation, text and music, etc.). Tuition ranges from practicing of numbers and testing events of workshops and performances to studio recordings and planning and implementation of tour with live performances.

You will thus have tried all the facets of which belong to work with a professional band. See here a general description of the ensemble teaching.
