    Just curious, what made you decide to create the Bass Academy? And how did you create your curriculum?

    Hi there. It's really something that I thought about from the beginning of my journey with learning the bass.
    I loved writing ideas down to try and help me get to where I wanted to be. In other words I set myself goals and then work backwards to try and find a path to that point.
    After a few years I had gathered a lot of manuscript books with all this material and when I taught privately I would pull these out to teach from.
    The reaction of the student was always "wow you should write a book" So I did and thought what if you could write a book with live support like when you buy a computer or software. You can call someone up and get guidance to troubleshoot your problems. So the Online Academy Idea came about.
    I love teaching and learning. I always felt like I was catching up and I hate that feeling.
    So over time I refined and systematized the material like a college course or at least the ideal college course for me.
    I spent 18 hard months putting this together and I'm so proud of it. It is about to be relaunched to a more refined course after tons of feedback from everyone who has participated.
    I think we have cracked it :)

    Hi there it's going to take roughly 2 weeks. All current members will be moved over when it's 100% ready.
    It's an unbelievable comprehensive amount of material that nearly killed me :)
