John Bass LRAM
Professional musician and specialist music teacher
Hello and welcome to "Music and Strings"
My name is John Bass and I would like to introduce myself and tell you about what I do for a living.
I am a believer that music should be enjoyable. The gift of music is something we can tap into all through our lives.
Music can bridge the divide between nations. It is a universal language just like a smile! Music is the one language everyone speaks.
I am a conservatoire trained professional musician, CRB checked and I offer a friendly and educational approach to the learning of music.
I have a vast experience teaching both privately and in schools having been sharing my knowledge with children and adults for 30 years.
As well as individual string teaching, I have a love of chamber music and conducting student and adult orchestras. I can run various sized groups from string duets up to full orchestras.
I also offer music theory lessons and exam aural lessons on a one to one basis or in groups.
The extra aural tuition is always imperative for any children taking practical exams.
I am also a member of the award winning string group Ariella Strings and my arrangements make up a lot of the music they perform.
Ariella Strings commission me to arrange music that their clients may have requested.
Ariella Strings has a very active facebook page - do visit it to find out what we are up to and what new arrangements I have been working on.
One of my passions is producing interesting and fun string arrangements.
This is something I have been doing for the last 25 years and I never tire of it.
My arrangements are suitable for professional groups and student groups alike.
Many of my arrangements are available on www.smppress.sheetmusicplus.com.
If you would like a complete list of my arrangements, please do contact me - details below.
