My 3 kids and I have been with Dark Mountain Music for almost 2 years now and absolutely love it! I'm always referring friends so I figured it's about time I left a review! lol The instructor is amazing and makes each lesson engaging and enjoyable. We take singing, piano and guitar lessons. Plus most recently music production. It's great that we can add or change instruments as we go without having to change studios or companies etc.. because they teach them all here. I also like that he comes to us for lessons instead of me having to drag my kids around. Super convenient that way. I've heard from many friends who are with other companies, that their younger kids don't enjoy piano lessons cause they're forced to work on classical music, but you get to play what you love here. You pick the songs to work on. Like my boys are learning video game music and current alternative music. Which is really cool to see and hear converted to the piano. I can't ever see us leaving Dark mountain music!

I have been taking singing lessons with the absolutely amazing Julia for almost a year now and my experience has been wonderful! Julia is a fantastic teacher. I have grown so much in my time with her and I'm looking forwarded to continuing to push my vocal boundaries with her help. I recently started piano with her as well and I'm loving every minute. Julia is professional, patient, and most importantly, inspiring. My lessons are my favourite day of the week.

Julia is so great! As an adult learner I was worried about not being quick like the kids. Julia is very patient with me and if she's frustrated she never, ever shows it!! Daniel runs an excellent business. Very professional and quick, open communication. 10/10 recommend.

I LOVE Dark Mountain Music! I get to see Julia for voice lessons and she has helped me so much with my confidence and ability to sing again! I had taken a year off from singing due to health related things and I was definitely nervous to start again but she was so kind and encouraging and made it a very fun hobby for me to enjoy again! Thank you Julia!!

faq

Can you accommodate different skill levels, from beginners to advanced players?

Absolutely! At Dark Mountain Music, we’re thrilled to teach students of any age or skill level, whether you’re just starting or a seasoned pro.

Everyone has something to learn! Our aim is to offer personalized instruction for every student, regardless of their skill level. We tailor to YOUR unique learning needs and goals. We see music as a lifelong journey of discovery and growth, and we’re excited to accompany you every step of the way.

Do you offer group bass lessons or only private instruction?

As of now, our school solely focuses on providing private lessons. While we understand there are some benefits to group instruction, we prioritize the individual and find that a tailored lesson plan always provides the best outcomes. This way we can effectively address your specific challenges, refine techniques, and work on the music YOU want to work on. We believe that this personalized approach ensures a more enriching and effective learning experience for our students.

How long will it take for me to play bass guitar well?

The time it takes to become a top-tier bassist can vary and depends on several factors including your natural aptitude for music and the amount of time you dedicate to your practice. With consistent practice and focus, many people can start playing simple bass lines and songs within a couple of months. However, to truly master the instrument, it can take several years of dedicated practice and guidance.

Simply put, you get what you put in! With hard work, dedication, and patience, anyone can steadily progress and achieve their goals.

What is the structure of your lessons? Do you follow a curriculum or customize each lesson?

Our bass lessons are all about having fun and getting inspired while working towards your musical goals. We focus on what you want to learn, not a rigid curriculum. Every lesson is personalized to match your interests, how you learn, and where you’re at skill-wise, keeping you pumped about your progress! Whether you want to jam out to your favourite tunes, improvise, or nail down specific techniques, we’ll craft a plan together to help you succeed.
