Teacher Info

Hi! I’m Georgia, an electric and double bassist playing and teaching up in the north of England, my beloved home since moving from down south to study music at The University of York.

I have been playing bass for over 15 years across the UK, and since graduating, have loved working in the pit with some of York’s biggest Musical Theatre companies, performing with big bands & function bands & jazz bands, and serving in church worship teams.

I am an educator and an encourager. I have been teaching bass for over 5 years and love seeing new students come and try the bass alongside the pros who want to learn something new! It’s a real joy to see people develop their musicianship and creativity. I draw on my own experience of being self-taught, and also having one-to-one lessons, to work with students on a bass playing path that will help them to achieve their goals and enjoy making music.

I’m here for students taking grade exams (Rockschool/Trinity/ABRSM), as well as those who want a more relaxed course of study. Please get in touch if you’d like to know more!

I’ve had lessons with Georgia for a few years now, because of her I’ve gone from knowing almost nothing about music theory to being offered a place at the Royal Academy of Music. She makes every lesson enjoyable and engaging and has a breath of knowledge that stretches from renaissance polyphony to pop, I could not recommend her more highly to anyone looking to gain more knowledge in music at any level.

I had a mixture of online and in person lessons with Georgia. From the start she grasped where I was at and looked at what I wanted to achieve. Her lessons were great fun and enabled me to make the progress I wanted quickly. Follow up emails to the lesson were helpful as well as sending bass transcriptions. Her teaching style is great and I would fully recommend her!

I bought a bass guitar a few years ago with very limited musical knowledge and zero guitar experience and Georgia was reccomended to me. Georgia not only made lessons engaging by bringing in music that I enjoyed, but also managed to incorporate musical theory into lessons in such a way that made learning theory fun and memorable (and I hate learning theory). I went from not knowing anything to playing in a band and I highly reccomend her as a teacher.

I started learning upright bass with Georgia a couple of years ago , I find her to be an excellent teacher she is reliable , flexible, and always gears the lesson to my ability level , she is happy to push you on but just as happy to wind things back if need be , you won’t be disappointed with Georgia as your teacher

Georgia has been teaching music theory to my 15 year old for several months. She is reliable, communicative, with amazing musical knowledge of so many instruments & genres. She is thoughtful and kind and definitely puts her students at the heart of her lessons. I was lucky enough to find Georgia from recommendations from other musicians in York – all of whom vouched for her fabulous experience and lovely engaging personality. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Georgia as a music teacher – you’d be lucky to get her!
