The National Centre for Young Bass Players

Welcome

Now in its 33rd year, Bass Club has given students the specialist tuition they need to reach and go beyond their ambitions. Courses are tailored to the individual's needs and the atmosphere is uniquely supportive.

Whether you are an advanced player taking professional auditions or a young player going on your first specialist course these amazing possibilities are available to you. The repertoire, teaching and communication styles have been developed over many years.

Bass Club offers a number of courses throughout the year which coincide with UK school holidays; in spring for younger bassists, summer and Christmas for students at all levels.
