Study Bass Online With The IIB
The International Institute of Bassists (IIB) is an online resource dedicated to the advancement of contemporary bass performance and the study of the bass tradition. Since its founding in 1997, the IIB has established a long-time presence on the internet and grown into one of the largest and most popular bass-related web sites found online. Today, the IIB is recognized as one of the leading online publications for bass players and the promotion of all things bass. The IIB keeps both electric and acoustic upright bassists of all levels of playing experience, from novice to professionals alike, returning every day for the latest updates and information in the bass community.

If you live in a remote area and are unable to attend one-on-one lessons with a private instructor on a regular basis or you maintain a hectic schedule due to work or family commitments, the courses offered at the IIB will take your knowledge to the next level and stimulate your pursuit of playing the bass with greater depth and new insight. By studying bass online through the IIB, you can learn at your own pace, on your own time, in the comfort of your own home, at a cost that is much cheaper than the price of most one-on-one private bass lessons from a local instructor, and you can easily archive the lesson material for future reference.

The IIB offers an expanding catalog of courses and live lessons in all areas of traditional and contemporary bass playing including technique, theory, sight reading, bass line construction, and soloing. These courses will enhance your understanding of techniques and theories that are crucial to your success as an independent musician. Through enrolling in the IIB's online bass courses, you can increase your performance opportunities, enhance your skills, and communicate with a network of like-minded bassists. Please review our course catalog to explore the different ways the IIB can assist in achieving your goals.
