Whether you have a child that wants to learn to play bass or you’re looking for yourself, Van Tuyl Music Academy is the place for you. Our seasoned, professional bass guitar instructors have experience with students of all ages and ability levels from beginner to intermediate and advanced.
VTMA is more than a school of rock for bass guitar lessons, we’re an immersive, one-of-a-kind school that teaches you how to find your true voice and play your heart out. Learning to play modern funk, pop, rock, blues, jazz and R&B requires special training and technique. It isn’t just about playing the notes you hear, it’s about understanding what modern bassists have done to create that intoxicating tone we all crave to hear. Let our instructors show you the way.
