Looking for a basic teacher or lessons in Malmö?

During your basic lessons at Malmö Music School, we will work with:

  • Instrument knowledge: You will learn the basic knowledge about string names, how to correct the bass and how the volume and tone dials work.
  • Note reading: To help you orient yourself through a note image, we will go through all the tone names and where these are located on the base's grip board. You will then get to practice your note reading through various exercises.
  • Tabulature: In many cases, it is difficult to find notes for music in e.g. rock and pop. Then it can be good to also be able to read tabs or tabs. Here you will learn how these work and practice playing after them.
  • Rhythms: We will work with all the sheet music values and you will get to practice playing different rhythms as well as beat species.
  • Scales: Here we work with different scales and how they can be used to play fills or solo, for example.
  • Chords: During the basic lessons we will work on how you can play different chords on an electric basis. This is done mainly through arpeggios which involves breaking up the chords and playing them tone by tone.
  • Hearing: You will work with your basic teacher to develop your response and try to plank different songs and bass lines. This will be done both with the help of your electric bass and singing.
  • Technology: Here we work with technology, both in the left and right hand. We will go through alternate plucking, raking, slap, pick and hammer ons/pull offs.
  • Improvisation: We will go through how you can use your knowledge of scales chords and rhythms to improvise.
  • Play songs: Of course, we will try to incorporate songplay into much of the teaching.
  • Write custom baselines: You will learn and practice writing your own baselines to different types of music.
  • Heating and ergonomics: To avoid damage, we will review how you should sit and keep your electric base as ergonomic as possible. In addition to this, you will also learn different warm-up exercises.
