The bass and the double bass are two instruments that were quickly assimilated by Cuban music. From the beginning of the magnificent mixture that would result in Cubanism, just with the appearance of the first danzón “The heights of Simpson” by Miguel Faílde’s orchestra, the double bass was present to mark the melodic line of what would become the Cuban national dance .
Many others followed this genre, so entering our Bass courses in Havana is the equivalent of starting a journey of discovering Cuban music and culture. There will be plenty of traditional rhythms such as son, bolero, guajira and trova, to reach other bolder ones such as timba and latin jazz, of which Cuban bassists are experts.
The advantage of our Bass courses in Havana
Unlike the rigid instruction of musical conservatories, of which Cuba prides itself on its excellence and quality, our system allows you to design your course adapting it completely to your needs. Whether you are a dedicated instrumentalist or a beginner, Havana Music School offers you the opportunity to get in touch with internationally renowned teachers and expert musicians in the execution of this instrument at the time and during the time you need to complete your training.
Depending on your level, the time you have to learn and the objectives you want to achieve we will prepare a curriculum specially designed to meet your needs. The advantage of this customisation is that, during your private classes, the teacher will be 100% focused on you, because you will be his only student.
