    Been giving some thought to giving bass lessons,
    but really don't have an idea of how I would
    put together a coherent lesson plan for teaching
    students. Anyone got a good idea of where to
    start - or is there actually such a thing as a
    ready-made "here's how you teach it" guide?

    I have the knowledge, I have the 'ability' to
    teach, but the organization of the process is
    a little beyond me at present. If I do this, I
    want to deliver quality. Any help?

    Go take a look at www.libster.com to see an example of a well-planned curriculum.

    The lessons are very well organized and focused on reading; rhythmically-simple pitch reading alternates with rhythm reading using only a few tones at first, so students aren't overwhelmed by either. The solo pieces and the more advanced lessons start to put pitch and rhythm together. It's light on techique, but that's a personal thing anyway.
