Learning to play the bass guitar
So you have decided to learn to play bass guitar? Well, it is one of the most popular instruments you can learn and fits very well in an endless list of musical genres. Music without sounds empty. The only down side to playing bass? Hit a bum note or miss one and everyone will know about it!
You may want just a casual hobby, want to sit exams, play classical guitar, jazz or thrash metal but what and how you choose to learn is entirely up to you and whatever your goals, we’ll get you on the right path with the right teacher.
Our bass guitar teachers
We go to some lengths to find our teachers, and have quite an extensive list to make sure we can offer music lessons on most instruments, and lesson formats to suit you. Each teacher has an area they excel in; we have classically trained teachers having studied at some of the UK’s best music universities, gigging musicians, and teachers who have toured, and are still touring Europe & the world, for example, one of our guitar teacher tours with ‘Happy Mondays’
All of the teahers at Sheehans are DBS (the new CRB) checked.

Concerts, Performances & Workshops
On top of the music lessons we run various groups and events, from Jam Sessions to Orchestra, and even open mic nights, all geared towards you getting the best out of playing your instrument. These groups and events are open to all and are used for the simple pleasure of performing, or even to gain confidence before that huge concert performance!
We also offer workshops, they can be anything from in depth technical help to advice on gigging and gear choice.
