Kevin Haines (Bass)

Post by ryla » Thu Jul 05, 2007 10:21 am

Kevin Haines was great for me - he simplified the complicated mess i got myself into by reading too many 'theory' and 'bass method books, by stripping everything down to a simplified 'worldview' and building up from there. He told me he loved doing my lessons because i always completed my 'homework exercises' - alot of his lessons with others were spent on going over the exercises from last week, that werent done which is basically a waste of his time and your money, so if you take lessons, make the most of them by completing assignments, before taking the next one, even if this means phoning to postpone the next lesson till your ready.

Hey Ryla, I'm currently looking for a bass tutor to teach me how to read music, and I read what great things you had to say about Kevin Haines, do you know if he is still tutoring? And maybe a contact number.

I'm o.k with chord charts but I want to take my theory to the next level.

Cheers.

you can catch kevin haines on november 6 at unijazzfest at the maidment - put on by uni school of music, i cant give away anyones contact number if they dont advertise it, school of music might help you with that. - hit the library - its a goldmine of bass clef and of course treble stuff, read the sax stuff as well as drums, found very useful "sight to sound;a guide to reading for the studio', by leon white - you have to ask for it as its 'well read' - theres alot of good how to read books from the library - my biggest hang up with alot of bass theory books is having tab below the script, i find it soooo distracting (i should be more disciplined), the above book is great for recognising rhythm patterns, learn equally both clefs, youll be surprised how youll automatically assimilate the code. Wite your own stuff, download stuff if you cant order stuff from the library, sheetmusicplus, google scripts, great book im reding at the moment - highly recommend "teach yourself to read music - a guide for pop, rock, blues and jazz singers', by jeffery deutsch., order it after im done with it - singing the notes and intervals while reading is cool as you should sing the notes and intervals you play on bass while practising, hope this helps, - Nev. - ps, get the basics sussed before a teacher to get max value out of the teacher.

I did a year at Auckland, and then a year at Massey, and Massey was better by FAR. Apparently it still is too, plus Alberto is the bass tutor there...and you can't go wrong with him :)
