Yes – and then some! Our Walpole Music Teachers are all highly experienced musicians and educators who work great with kids. Most of our instructors also have graduate degrees in their respective fields from respected institutions, such as Berklee College of Music. They have motivational personalities and are passionate about passing the gift of music to the next generation. Our success is your family’s success!
Not only do we teach how to play and hold your instrument – we teach music theory, rhythm, note-reading, and harmony as well! In fact, if you really want to play bass well, you NEED to understand harmony. As the pillar of the orchestra, jazz band, or small ensemble, your role as a bass player will be to provide a firm support to all the other musicians who will often rely on your steady beat and harmonic grounding.
For kids under the age of 10, we start with 30 minute classes. For pre-teens and teens, ages 10+, we offer 45 or 60 minute lessons. The general rule is that the longer the lesson, the more material will be covered, and therefore the faster the rate of progress. Like in any subject, you get out what you put in!
Did you know that our location is right next to Bird Park, at the Union Congregational Church? It’s true! We are on 55 Rhoades Avenue in a beautiful location. When you are done with lessons, take your kids to the park and have them run around and blow off some steam. Be sure to find the many hidden bridges that meander through the estate.
Our Walpole Bass Lesson rates are similar to the competition. Our students are billed on a monthly basis and pay a flat rate no matter how many weeks are in the month. For 30 minutes, the rate is $192 per month. For 45 minutes, it’s $288 per month. For 60 minutes, our rate is $384 per month.
