The bass player ties together the melody and the rhythm in the band, whether it’s pop, rock, metal, jazz or hip hop.


At the beginner’s course, Bass 1, you get an introduction to basic bass playing; you practice different techniques, scales and basslines, as well as playing simple songs.

At the advanced course, Bass 2, you learn more advanced techniques and styles, improvising and you play more challenging songs. You also get to try out slapping and popping. We recommend you complete two beginner’s courses before you enrol in this course.

Our courses are largely tailored to the skills of the participants. The courses are originally in Norwegian but can be adapted to accommodate the English speaking students.

All our courses focus on the joy of playing music, as well as mastering the instrument on every step of the way. The courses are usually in small groups consisting of 3 to 5 participants.
