Electric Bass Lessons - The Hague
Hi, I'm Johnny Daly! I'm an enthusiastic and motivating bass teacher in The Hague centre. Getting started with the bass guitar from scratch or have you been playing already but want to improve your technique and learn some new skills?
Beginners - Advanced
If you love the rich sound of a bass guitar and dream of being the groove that keeps your band going, wait no longer and sign up today for a trial lesson!
My home studio is located in the centre of the Hague, easily accessible by car, tram or bus. I have a bass guitar at home, so for the trial lesson you will not need to bring one with you. I'm interested in tailoring a study program to suit your individual needs. I have an extensive LP and CD collection which can enhance the learning process through listening and discussing together with you!
I also offer fun, comprehensive and well structured online courses for beginners, intermediate and advanced players.

The bass guitar, like any instrument, does require a lot of practice in order to master. I'll be using modern teaching methods and customised exercises to your needs and musical taste. You"ll be playing your favourite songs and covers in no time, be it Jazz, Rock, Blues, Pop, Funk or Latin.

Backbone of the Band
As a bassist you’re the backbone of the band. Being a professional bass player myself I love to share my experience with you about how to provide the all-important feeling and groove of the music, which no song can be without.
