Hello! I would like to know if you, as bass teachers, teach students creativity, composing, etc. ? Do you use exercises to stimulate creativity, usage of new patterns (rhythmic and harmonic)? Do you make composing exercises "in the style of"? Do you make exercises for composing? Do you give feedbacks on student's basslines? How do you help him get better in composing basslines and fills? Do you give him exercises/stuff to listen to open up his "musical mind"? Do you make exercises to compose cliché basslines for different musical styles? I would like to know just if you do it, no need to break open your "tricks of the trade" In general, do you think it's "teachable"? Can you get better with it with mindful exercises, or it just "comes" magically (or it doesn't)? Does it just happen, or do you make it happen? Disclaimer: I'm not a teacher, but a student who wants to get better in composing department PS: If you know online bass courses that teach "creativity", I'll be happy to know them too.
