HELLO AND WELCOME
Whether you’re a total beginner or a touring pro, I tailor my bass lessons to suit you. I’m one of the only bass teachers in London who’ll travel to your home, and you don’t even need a bass or an amp to get started.
You can have as much control of the lessons as you like, and even handpick the songs that you want to learn. I also offer personalised learning materials, from study plans to specially edited backing tracks.
“ I’ve had a few bass teachers over the years and Damion is the best. Having taken the time to establish what it is that you want to achieve, he then has a natural ability to design and structure lessons that reach that goal. And he’s a very nice guy. Highly recommended.
“ As a professional saxophonist, I found the bass guitar to be an entirely different beast, and quite a challenge. Damion came bass shopping with me in London and helped me to find an affordable bass that fit my style. In lessons he has taught me proper technique and given me valuable exercises to help build my skill. He is also very flexible, which suits my busy work schedule.
“ I learnt more in my first few lessons with Damion than in months of trying to teach myself – music is a mind-meltingly complicated subject but having a teacher who understands it inside and out – and, more importantly, can break it down into digestible chunks – makes all the difference.
“ Having played the bass (badly) without instruction for a few years, I’d picked up a lot of bad habits. Damion corrected these straight away, and within days of our first lesson I’d revolutionised my technique. With Damion’s meticulous expertise, I’m continuing to improve every week. It’s incredibly satisfying. Damion’s also really easy to get along with, super flexible, and he’s always on time.
I was 16 years old when I first picked up the bass, and I’ve hardly put it down since. As a professional bassist I’ve played with dozens of bands, with regular gigs in London. Through my private tuition and work as a bass tutor at both St Mary Magdalene & Chobham academies, I’ve taught over 200 students, from 5 years old to pushing 70. I love teaching all genres, from old-skool funk to heavy metal.
