Come take the best bass lessons in Baltimore, and our instructors will have you groovin’ in no time. From finger placement to grooving and harmonic knowledge our skilled instructors work with students of all ages and levels. Our bass instructors work with each student on having fun while refining their skills to reach their potential as a musician. At Stages, our mission of “Learn. Perform. Record.” guides our work with each student, and all students have opportunities to record their own compositions using technology in the lesson room, perform at recitals and enhance their musicianship as the member of a band in one of our group programs.
Our expert instructors give the students the building blocks of bass playing – from proper technique to grooves and tone – to get them playing and sounding like pros. Through weekly lessons at our facility just outside of Baltimore, students will build up their skills and gain the confidence to perform their favorite songs, perform with fellow students and write their own bass lines.
For those looking to further their skills beyond the beginner level, Stages’ bass instructors have the knowledge to turn students into the backbone of the band. Digging deeper into theory, slap and pop technique, scales and chords, intermediate and advanced lessons turn students into masters.
Stages Music Arts has a wide variety of programs to accommodate all ages and skill levels! See below what we have to offer.
Recommended Ages: 4-8
The Mini Music Makers program is designed to help the youngest future musicians find the instrument they want to play, while having fun learning basic music concepts such as beat, rhythm and notes. In weekly 30-minute lessons at our Baltimore-area facility, students can experiment with ukulele, piano, drums and voice and choose which instrument they’d like to pursue further. The ukulele is a great precursor to bass – a lot of the skills translate!
