Here are two students who joined the Learn Double Bass in 4 Days as part of our Strings Summer School program. The boys composed a song called Summerful Beat said Fiona Lugg, their teacher. Using their tonal and rhythmic memory they play it without reading music.

One student uses the bass as a percussion instrument while the other plays a riff on a recurring chord sequence. Put on your dance shoes. The boys are also learning London Bridge as a bass duet.

They will a lso join the other Strings Summer School ensembles in this afternoons concert and play Hoe Down. The boys are aged six and a half and 12 years. Our 12-year-old student plays piano and electric bass and has transferred his skills over to the double bass really quickly.

Our younger student plays piano and has a great sense of rhythm. Join us, 1pm today at the Con and watch some awesome young musicians.
