Learn to play the bass with industry-standard teacher Peter Elliot.
Hello! My name is Peter and I am a professional Bass tutor located in Watford.
I offer professional bass lessons to students of all abilities in the watford area.
I am a outgoing teacher & I pride myself on making sure my lessons are always of the highest quality.
I offer my tuition to students ages 6 and above. I feel that it is too difficult for students younger than 6.
I am a music lover & this reflects in my teaching style. I can teach a wide range of genres including Rock, Pop, Jazz, Funk & much more.
As well as teaching from home, I also offer mobile lessons where I will travel to you for the session.
High-quality bass tuition in Watford for ages 6 and above.
I only offer half-hour lessons as I believe that learning short and often is the key to fast progress. Half-hour lessons also suit students of all ages.
'Enjoyed the lessons. Introduced to the history of music and different genres, along with a real emphasis on technique and understanding the pieces being played. Would not hesitate to recommend Pete and a great help in preparing for the 11 plus music aptitude test.'
'I highly recommend these guitar lessons. Great tunes. Fab techniques. Keeps the kids motivated and the lessons fun. Excellent communication and great prices.'
'As an adult student I was quite anxious to begin with and with Pete’s patience and encouragement I am gaining confidence and now really look forward to the sessions. Can’t recommend enough to any of the more mature students out there that may interested in learning the guitar.'
I offer guitar, bass guitar and ukulele lessons in Bushey, Watford and surrounding areas. Students may choose to take group lessons or one-to-one lessons in my Bushey studio or to have home tuition.
I'm passionate about the bass guitar and strongly believe that music enriches the lives of all those who engage with it. But learning an instrument can give us so much more than the ability to perform. It’s a tool for self-development, building friendships and fine-tuning the mind; both intellectually and as a means of promoting sound mental health. Music presents exciting new opportunities as students develop lifelong skills..
I like to ensure that my lessons are always enjoyable for all of my students. Enjoying what you learn is always the key to succeeding.
I am a qualified teacher who has obtained a BA (Hons) in Jazz as well as a Postgraduate certificate of music technology. These both enable me to make sure your lessons are of the highest quality.
I currently take the majority of my lessons from my studio in Bushley which is a great place to learn to play. I can also travel to you for lessons if this is an option that sounds better. Please let me know what works best for you.
