Lesson videos normally range between 5 and 20 minutes in length depending on the complexity and depth of the content.
Working with a private instructor is a tried-and-true method of learning. However, students can fail to retain information over time from only being able to experience each lesson one time. Online learning offers the ability to pause, rewind, and replay each lesson video. This provides a streamlined learning experience and serves as a catalyst to your bass education. This is an extremely cost-effective solution for students anywhere in the world to receive professional instruction and learn at their own pace on their own time.
Yes! We pride ourselves on offering a universal curriculum to help players of any skill level. If you’re a player just starting out, we have many lessons showing you the barest of basics ranging from how to position your hands and fingers to showing you how to properly change your strings and even tune your bass. We are confident that no player will be left behind! For extra assistance, you can ask questions through our Q&A feature, chat in the members' forum, or submit videos of your playing to get feedback and critique. You can utilize these features on an unlimited basis as many times as you want!
Each video is shot in crisp 1920x1080 high-definition resolution with multiple camera angles to provide you with the best seat in the house!
New lesson content is posted every single week with each new video having a different difficulty level than the next. This allows players of all skills levels to have a constant flow of new material to focus on. For Premium Plan subscribers, new application "challenge" licks and bass-less play-along tracks are added regularly. Interactive features will be utilized on a case-by-case basis for each student.
For maximum accessibility to all students, most content is currently created for a 4-string bass. Our goal is to provide content that isn’t bound to any single type of instrument in order to be playable on any bass.
Yes! Premium Plan subscribers will have access to our "Student Video Review" feature that allows you to post videos of your playing and receive direct feedback and critique from Mark.
