Let's Learn to Play Bass Guitar!
Hi! I'm Will Irace. I've been playing bass for thirty years. I earned my music degree at Cal State Northridge. I live and work in Southwest Portland Oregon.
After we spend some time together, you'll be able to say:
"I understand how my bass works and what all its parts are for."
"I know how to handle, tune, adjust, and restring my bass."
"I know how to learn a new song!"
"I can play lots of different scales and grooves and riffs, and put them together to support a band!"
"I can navigate all around the fretboard instead of keeping my hand in one position all the time."
"I'm getting better at reading music. Plus I know about modes and chords and tabs and stuff."
"My hands are strong: I can play for hours without getting tired!"
"Yeah, I'm a bass player. Come check out my band this weekend!"
I welcome students of all ages: six to sixty and beyond. Your parent, guardian, relative or friend will be welcome to relax on a nearby couch while we learn together.
Don't own a bass yet? No problem. You can play on one of mine during our lessons.
