This book and accompanying audio is a detailed guide to learning how to play the upright bass. Designed for beginners, no prior musical knowledge is necessary. Included are lessons on technique fundamentals, reading music, and basic music theory. The book also emphasizes the importance of crafting a personal approach and relationship to the instrument. Although having a private teacher to help you through all of the exercises and concepts is ideal, the book is designed to supply you with anything and everything you might need to start on your own.
