    Hiya, I've finally, after 2 years, decided to get some bass lessons.

    As im not all that wealthy, and am a cheapskate, I'm hopeing to get lessons on a fortnightly basis, and doing pre-set 'work' between.

    I can already read music fairly well, and know basic theory.

    My main question is, on the first meeting with the tutor (or over a phone call), how should I
    A) Find out if their 'good'
    B) Find out what they can teach me over a set time
    C) Inform them of my current progress

    Cheers :D

    Ill go have a look around for some possible options, then start the lessons in 2/3 weeks (college half term :) )

    Wouldn't it be better to decide first, what it is that you want them to teach you and then ask if they can do it??!!
