Since 2004, Van Tuyl Music Academy is Huntington Beach’s original school of rock, funk, slap, metal, pop, blues, jazz and live performance for bass guitar. Whether you have a child that wants to learn the bass or you’re looking for yourself, Van Tuyl Music Academy is the place for you. Our seasoned, professional bass instructors have experience with students of all ages and ability levels from beginner to intermediate and advanced.
VTMA is more than a music factory for bass lessons, we’re an immersive, one-of-a-kind school that allows real, pro bassists to connect with students to truly master the low end. Any YouTube video or weekend warrior musician can show a novice a few tricks on the bass or semi-accurate bassline, but our instructors will show you both how to play and why to play. Don’t let a guitarist show you how to play a four stringed guitar, let a VTMA Bassist show you how the instrument truly works.
