Siebe Pogson – Bass Guitar Teacher
While I don’t offer bass guitar lessons, I can highly recommend Siebe Pogson. I play with Siebe in Soul Messengers and can happyily recommend him; he is a terrific musician.
“I have been teaching for over ten years on bass and piano. I have put students through the HSC and AMEB exams and I currently hold tutoring positions at Reddam House, (piano and bass tutor) and at IGS (bass tutor). In the past I have held positions at Aria music and continue to run my own teaching business. I love teaching and I coordinate what students want to learn with what they need to know in order to become a great musician. I specialise in several styles such as funk, jazz and rock and I like to break things down into five different components, technique, theory, reading, improvising and composition.”
“Siebe took me through to the HSC on bass providing plenty of lesson materials such as transcriptions and encouraged me whilst I was learning difficult repertoire. I learnt how to play the bass, but I also learnt how music works. He taught me how to improvise my own solos, bass lines and how to lead an ensemble.” – Ariel
“I had lessons with Siebe for four years and in that time, I improved my technique and my theoretical knowledge of music. I was able to choose the songs I liked, and we built lessons around them.” – Sophie
“Siebe taught my daughter bass for 4 – 5 years and during that time, she not only developed strong technical skills, but he helped to foster a genuine passion for the instrument and her musical practice. Siebe was incredibly dedicated and went above and beyond to explore different genres of music and really help her realise her potential.” – Suzie
