New Year – New Cohort!
Is Improving Your Bass Playing on Your To-do List for 2021?
If you have dropped off online courses before, you may be an excellent candidate for peer support, accountability and coaching!
Don’t take it from me…. listen to what 2020 graduates are saying…
Check out our New Year’s Cohort
My Cohort takes you through my highly successful and effective “Music Theory for the Bass Player” online course with the additional layer of support and accountability that can make all the difference:
Participants are assigned a coach who will provide encouragement every step of the way: If you are struggling with an issue with the recording process, they will help you figure it out. If you are having difficulty with a particular exercise, they will help you work it out. If you are late with an assignment, they will send you a reminder to help keep you on track.
The Cohort is designed to challenge you but you are in charge. If you reserve 45 minutes/day, five days/week, you can do it. Assignments include posting short videos of yourself performing chosen exercises. By posting publicly (every other week), we’ve found it results in you taking practicing more seriously.
Recording yourself has proven to be an incredibly powerful tool in the learning process. As you progress through the course, you will find yourself identifying areas of opportunity as well as reinforcing areas of strength in your playing.
Community of Peers
Your assigned coach (and other participants) will view and provide positive and encouraging feedback on these video submissions.
Learning is more fun with a group and coach support!
My name is Fred and I have been the head coach of the Cohorts since 2019. My experience coaching two cohorts has been that participants really benefit by learning with a buddy group- and it’s so much easier to stay on track when you have a dedicated coach in your corner cheering you on! So many of our graduates have told me that they never would have completed the course without the coach and peer support, and regular assignments.
Personally, I have been through the course (twice) and it has plugged so many “holes” in my playing as a result of being mostly self-taught. I am so much more comfortable moving around the fretboard; my technique is vastly improved; and my “ears” are so much better now that I am recognizing familiar progressions based on the diatonic cycle much more easily.
I put together this video to give bass players like yourself an overview of our Cohort. It features the candid commentary and feedback from four of our most recent Cohort graduates. So, take a listen, see if this Cohort thing is right for you. But do hurry, the Cohort starts on January 15th, and only a few seats remain!
