Who is it for?

As a Beginners course, the box set is suitable for complete beginners who have never played bass before. Its also helpful for self taught players who want to go through all the basics and fill in any gaps intheir playing and improve their technique. The course is also designed for guitarists wanted to transfer to bass.


If you are already a relatively accomplished player (i.e. already playing proficiently in a worship band) then we'd suggest you go straight to the Intermediate set.


Is there anything ability-wise between Beginners and Intermediate?

Yes, the Song Learner Series is perfect for people who have completed the Beginners DVDs and want to consolidate their playing by learning some great bass parts to other worship songs before progressing to the Intermediate DVDs. The Song Learners are available in 3 DVDs or as individually downloadable online lessons.


What else is available to help me practice?

We have a DVD called Worship Backing Band - Musicians Practice Tracks which contains 54 worship songs that you can play along with. Practice is a lot more fun with other people! You can select to take any one instrument out of the mix so you effectively get to play along as the bass player in a pro band.

The DVD shows on-screen words and chords. There is also the option to play along to a click track which will really help develop your timing.


Will the DVDs work on my DVD player?

The DVDs are NTSC and coded Region 0 which means they will play anywhere in the world.


Can I get a refund if I don't like the DVDs?

Yes, you are also covered by our 100% customer satisfaction guarantee if having received the DVDs you do not feel they are right for you.

Can get you playing bass in church in less than 2 months | Review by Stephen
Ease Of Use
I was asked if I could play bass in church. No, I replied - for two reasons. 1) I dont have a bass guitar and 2) I don't know how to play one. The Lord does move in mysterious ways. I found myself on a business trip in PMT's Manchester. They had a Squier Jaguar Short Scale at decent price and I felt driven to buy it (telling the Mrs that God prompted me to but it didn't quite work). So one down one to go. Then I found Matt Week's course on YouTube. This made the bass accessible - So I bought Beginners, Intermediate and Song Learners as a job lot [I think Musicademy site makes it hard to work out which DVDs combo to get though].

I knew the Lord was with me when the Mrs prompted me to buy an Orange amp. Instead of buying brand new I bid for two amps on eBay - theory was I would get one. Well I won both - total cost 70% of brand new amp and by following Matt's Beginners DVD I was humbly playing within 6 weeks. I think she sees now that this was part of God's plan for me.

My bass guitar makes me feel young again and I really am learning humility from the teachings and anecdotes given on the DVD. I am there in a non muddy part of the spectrum to add some fundamentals to the worship - not to over play or steal the show. Less is more - adding tension/ resonance by NOT playing all the time is uber cool. Just started on the song learner and found the members download section really useful.

Thanks again - I can highly recommend these DVDs.

I enjoy the lessons. They are very easy to follow. However, i am not sure what i accomplished by odering tje down loads 1-8. I need some clarification on them. So if i could get some guidance that would be great. Am also about to order the package for playing the key board as well.

Outstanding learning experience | Review by Simo
Ease Of Use
I've really enjoyed this course, I tried learning straight off the internet and got nowhere. So I signed up for the beginners worship bass course, the best thing I ever did. It was so easy to follow, explaining every step of the way in simple terms, but moving along at a reasonable pace so you don't get bogged down. Matt Weeks is such a good teacher, he sort of became a friend over the duration of the course, so thanks to him. I now play regularly in my church worship band, it's great. Well done musicademy.

I'm loving the tutorials! | Review by Eli
Ease Of Use
I have been learning bass on and off for about 5 years. I have picked up something here another thing there. The reason I love this program is because it starts in the beginning and progressivly gets harder. I would say it is better than the last bass teacher I had!

Excellent Course for Beginner on Bass | Review by novaknight
Ease Of Use
If you are looking for a beginning bass course focused on worship music, this is perfect. Format is great and easy to get lots of short duration practices in daily. I had some bass training going in so I moved very quickly through Volume 1. Volume 2&3 gave me a great addition in my foundation.

I took lessons for a year and got nowhere close to where I got with this series. I now play in our praise team and a local contempory Christian band thanks to this series. Can't say enough good things about it!!!

Awesome | Review by Dwayne
Ease Of Use
I purchased the Bass Beginners DVD collection and I have been thrilled with this purchase.

Not only have the lessons be easy to understand, but the fact they show you how to add rhythm patterns is awesome.

I had been taking lessons for a professional Bass instructor and when I added these lessons to my learning experience I really started to grow in my playing ability. My instructed was very pleased and surprised at how quickly I started to advance.

Now, understand this; I was 46 when I started taking the lessons and using these DVD's. I am now 48 and have been playing in a Praise Band for the past 9 months!

I am a Pastor and I play in our Praise Band as well. How cool is that? Yea, that's cool. I have also been asked to play with two other singers who play the guitar and travel to local churches and play at special events.

All in all this purchase was a most excellent decision.
