Upright Bass Lessons in Tampa

By contrast, our upright bass lessons in Tampa are also a best seller. For instance, we have middle school students studying in their school orchestra. 

However, some of our kids love crossover string music, like The Piano Guys. Yet, still others are jazz lovers, practicing stylistic standards. Whatever your unique musical passions may be, our teachers will get you there. Find out more about our all star team next…

Learn to Play Bass and Upright Bass With the Most Qualified Teachers in Tampa!

We love our teaching team! It would be impossible to maintain such wide offerings without the most skilled bass teachers in Tampa in our music school. All Barrett School of Music teachers hold or are actively working toward a music degree from a major university. What’s more, they are all active performers in the community. We’ve got it all, from the USF Symphoic Orchestra, to Saint Pete Opera to Happy Hour at American Social. You can catch us anywhere and everywhere, practicing what we love.

So, when a student asks for Red Hot Chili Peppers, we’ve got it. Then, if another student is working on Classical upright bass, we’ve got that covered too. We love the creativity our students bring to the table. Moreover, we love giving them the tools for musical success.

Bass Lessons For Beginners in Tampa

Maybe, you’re reading through, but you don’t have specific goals yet. Perhaps, you don’t own your instrument yet. You’re not sure of the trajectory. You just know you’re a beginner. Well, we love beginners too!

Barrett School of Music teaches private bass lessons to many beginners. In fact, beginning bass students can be kids, teens or adults. We will teach age-appropriate fundamentals for electric and upright bass. That includes bowing technique, crossing strings and finger technique on upright bass. For electric bass, beginning technique is scales, ear training finger technique (again!).

Perform for our large end of the year recital. Share your favorite holiday piece at our holiday concert. We have plenty of options for you.
