Bass Lessons in Toronto with Mike Milligan







Mike Milligan has been teaching electric bass (bass guitar) and double bass (acoustic bass-upright bass) for over twenty years. He has taught privately and has conducted clinics and master classes at various secondary and post-secondary schools throughout Canada. Mike runs his private teaching practice from a studio in his home in Toronto.

Mike is a teacher who likes to emphasize a relaxed and fun approach to music education, an approach that helps the student enjoy the process of learning to play the bass. A solid grounding in the physical/technical aspects of playing is conveyed through various exercises that help the student acquire proper technique. Developing a strong time (or rhythmic) feel is a crucial aspect of music performance and Mike has various methods to help students achieve this. Any aspect of music a student may wish to inquire about is welcomed and fully explored. Mike's teaching methods have been very successful; many students have started performing in public and all are happy with their progress thus far. Please be sure to read the testimonials page.

Mike has performed in concert and recorded with many of the leading figures in contemporary jazz. He has studied double bass with Dave Holland and George Mraz (two world class bass players). See his bio page for more information.

New students are always welcome to bring a friend or gaurdian to the lessons if they so choose.
