My Name is Tom Le Cocq. I am a Manchester based professional bassist with over 20 years playing experience. I have a degree in music, specialising in performance and composition.
I teach guitar and bass to all levels of ability and can cover almost any style. Filthy funk bass lines, atmospheric guitar improvisation, the fundamentals of jazz or blues, composition and music theory, performance psychology and anything else besides: I can help you explore any aspect of music.
I believe that gaining confidence and having fun playing are just as important as imparting theoretical knowledge. Lessons can be exploratory and dynamic, or structured and academic; we can work out what works for you. Learning songs, jamming together, technical exercises and ear training can all form part of a lesson.
Regular lessons are definitely ideal, but if you want a one-off lesson to explore a particular subject thats also cool!
