I've done a search on this but not come up with any solid answers. I have 30+ years experience as a professional and semi professional bassist and guitarist. I've reached the point in time when paid gigs are far less frequent than they used to be mostly by choice. Lately I've thought hard about offering something back to music in appreciation for all that's given to me. I'm in a position where I could take on a limited number of students who want to either begin learn the bass as an instrument or those who have already begun but need some lessons and encouragement to get them over a hump in their progress. For the moment I would only be dealing with some of the initial phases of learning to play the instrument properly, reading, listening, technique, scales, etc. and proceeding through instruction of how to play in an ensemble. I will not teaching any advanced students. I've begun to collect some data that would help me prepare some lesson formats I could use depending upon the students desire of what to learn and their level of competence. What I don't know yet is what the range for fees are and how most go about this. Per lesson, per week, per month etc. Any advice given would be greatly appreciated.
