Bass Lessons

I offer private bass guitar, piano, and music theory instruction both online and in person within the local Montgomery County, Maryland area. For over thirty years, I have been helping students of all levels to reach their musical goals, both privately and in classroom situations. Personalized lessons in the convenience of your own home (within a 10 mile radius of Rockville) are $70 per hour or $40 per half hour. Live internet lessons via Skype or Zoom can also be arranged for anyone outside the area at the same rate. Check out my Free Bass Lessons page for some lesson samples, or contact me to get in touch with me for a no-obligation consultation about private instruction. Below are some testimonials from former students of mine.

“Doug is a great teacher. His experience as a gigging professional bass player means that I get the no nonsense techniques to develop tasty licks. I recommend that aspiring bass players take a lesson from Doug as soon as possible.” -Michael Scott E

“Doug is a great bass instructor. I have no music background and he made me feel comfortable. He was patient and he made it really fun to learn to play.” -Ellen R

“If you are serious about becoming a better bass player I would highly recommend Doug Ross. Working with Doug has made learning the bass an incredibly fun experience, while at the same time he has continually challenged me to become a better player. No matter what your current level of experience, Doug can not only improve your playing, but also help you see the bass in new creative ways.” -Reed B
