Upright Bass Lessons

Also called the double bass, string bass, acoustic bass, stand-up bass, even the “doghouse,” the upright bass is the largest and lowest pitched string instrument in the modern symphony orchestra. Players use either a “French bow” (held like a cello bow) or a “German bow” (held with an underhand grip). The upright bass can be plucked as well.

However, the upright bass is used in much more than just the western classical world. Many different genres use the stand up bass- jazz, folk, old-time, bluegrass, rock, blues, rockabilly, country- and our teachers at Asheville Music School teach them all. Whatever your musical passion or preference we can accommodate.
