Bass Lessons In Vancouver

Keep Your Finger on the Pulse

Improve Your Rhythmic Skills and Be the Bassist Your Always Dreamed of Becoming

Private Bass Lessons for Adults

Horizon School of Music is located in the heart of Vancouver, BC, offering easy access to transit and gritty views of the cityscape. It’s a friendly safe space with plenty of natural light designed to inspire bassists of all levels. But if you prefer learning the ropes of rhythm from the comfort of your own home or if your current location/schedule doesn’t permit in-studio lessons, we offer remote tutorials via video chat platforms. Whatever setting works best for you, works best for us.

Learn with the Best

Our team of highly skilled instructors are widely considered the very best bassists in Vancouver. They are just as passionate about teaching bass guitar as they are about playing bass guitar. Backed by years of stage, studio and classroom experience, our four-string sages use proven instructional strategies and a positive approach that help students make continuous progress and reach their full potential. Come meet one of our grandmasters of groove today and get inspired!

Schedule at Your Convenience

At Horizon, our goal is to make bass guitar lessons accessible to everyone, regardless of how busy they are with work, family and other commitments. That’s why we offer a flexible, stress-free scheduling platform that allows students to confirm, cancel and reschedule lessons as they see fit. No commitment, no contract, no getting locked into the same allotted time week in, week out – just the freedom and joy that comes from finding your groove on your own timeline.

Personalize Your Goals

To ensure every student gets the support and instruction they need to meet his/her particular goals, Horizon offers complimentary consultations. Our instructors are experts at tailoring their teaching methods to help students tap into their individual rhythmic power. Whether you’re already part of a tight rhythm section, but want to learn how to create some killer fills, or you’re a beginner wanting to learn the basics of building a throbbing baseline, we got you covered!

Follow Your Musical Bliss

Be it electric or acoustic, the best place to learn any type of bass guitar is at Horizon School of Music. We specialize in all genres of music including funk, punk, jazz, metal, R&B and all points in between. Our well-versed instructors have the expertise to guide students looking to focus on any specific area of bass playing. And for students wanting a taste of several plucking, striking and slapping styles, our teachers are well-equipped for that too.

...I'd highly recommend Horizon School of Music to anyone who wants to be part of a real music community that cares about your journey and learning.

When I have a lesson with Eli, its more like just jamming with a friend. He allows me to learn what I want to learn, not only what he wants to teach.

My face time lessons are easier than expected and I love that there are different guitar style clinics available so I can learn different genres.

...The co-teaching with Eli on the monthly Metal Consortium has got to be the best metal group class ever to happen. I will close by saying I used to hate Mondays. I have my lessons on Mondays.... it's now my favourite day of the week.
