Bass guitar depends on the size of the student’s hands. We have found between eight and ten to be a good starting age for bass guitar lessons.
Bass guitar is the heart and soul of any band. Our bass guitar teachers are well versed in all the classic and popular styles. Rock, Blues, Slap bass, Funk, Jazz, Reggae and more!
We also have our popular Join the Band® program that Bass guitar students can join to play in a real band setting.
What is a good age for bass guitar?
Eight to nine years is the youngest we recommend for bass guitar lessons. Though we do take it case by case. Because of their smaller hands, the physical part of holding the guitar neck, pushing down strings with their fingertips, and holding a pick can be very difficult for young children. We do have kids as young as six years old taking guitar lessons, but we prefer to evaluate them first at the music studio.
