Coda Bass: Schools and Education

Welcome to the schools page. Coda Bass' learning method is an ideal resource for students of school age. Our syllabus is both designed to mirror the different ability levels required in Rockschool grades, and is the most detailed we’ve found online.

Absolute Beginner / Beginner lessons, and Beginner Songs are pitched atschools_145 pre-grade 1 level, allowing students to reach a standard where they can work towards grade 1 attainment. Coda Bass' levels 1–5 will correspond with the musical requirements of grades 1–5.

All video lessons are available via secure streaming from our website, and song lessons include downloadable backing tracks and scores. The learning period available through combining 6 Beginner songs with the Absolute Beginner / Beginner lessons is 1 - 2 academic terms (taken from trials using learners with up to 9 months playing experience).
