So, I continue to teach private guitar lessons, and I teach a "Rock Band" class of sorts one day a week after school at the Hayground School (Bridgehampton). That class currently has two guitarists, a bassist, a drummer, and a percussionist. We have a lot of fun, and these kids are getting better and better before my eyes. Very fulfilling to witness, and foster.
I also teach guitar at Crossroads Music (Amagansett) on Saturdays, and after a brief break to perform a couple of weekend festivals in a row, I'm back at it from Saturday October 12th through 2013 and beyond. All this lesson-ing is really enjoyable, and I truly love it. But the question is...
WHERE ARE THE BASS PLAYER STUDENTS?
It dawned on me that I started playing cello in 5th grade, moved to bass, toured, recorded, performed more times than I can count, and I've been at it for a long long time... but I've got no regular bass students! Where are you, fellow four (OK, five and six) stringer brethren?
Well, maybe this will flush you guys out:
Michael Clark and Crossroads Music have a "Rocktober Workshop" series going on Sundays at 5pm, featuring sessions with some of the greats around here: Drummer Corky Lang , Guitarists Andy Aledort (10/6, 11/3), Kerry Kearny (10/13), Bosco Michne (11/3), and none other than some guy named Mick Hargreaves (10/27) heading up the bass guitar class.
My bass workshop is for all levels of players and will be interactive, to say the least. I'll cover all facets of the bass, plus we'll review gear options/techniques, playing in different genres, and I'll field all sorts of questions. Seating is very limited so make your reservations now by calling 631.907.4838. Seats are $60 and classes will be at least an hour.
