Nice Testimonial from Student Kirby Green

I am very grateful for the sessions I have had with Steve. I have left each session excited and motivated to work even harder on my skills as a bassist. He is patient and gladly willing to answer any questions I have, all while still guiding the lessons in a very methodical and clear manner. Steve is undoubtedly one of the best at what he does, and it is a true blessing that he enjoys sharing his gift through mentoring students. Thank you Steve for your encouragement, kindness, and wisdom.
fellow Bass Clef friend,

Bass guitar lessons comments from two students

Posted by on Mar 17, 2014 in Bass Stuff... | 0 comments

Received a very kind email from a student…Thanks Matt!

“I moved to Nashville one year ago and was lucky enough to get in touch with Steve. His instruction is not your run of the mill variety. He cuts out the nonsense and shares with you real world knowledge, techniques, and methods that he himself uses on a daily basis as one of Nashville’s most sought after session players. Studying with Steve is one light bulb going off after another. No matter what level of experience you have or what style(s) you play, you will be a better musician after studying with Steve.” – Matt Cantin

also a wonderful comment from another student:

” As a former student of Steve, I could not agree more. If you want to improve your musicianship, marketability, applied learning, go see Steve Bryant–in person or on Skype.”  –  David Galante

Bass Lessons from a Nashville Studio Musician
Lessons from a Nashville Bassist with 34 years experience with all types of music — Real Deal, Real World….As a bassist, knowing the chords and the how/why of their movement in a song is vastly more important than running scales as your practice content…Over the years, I’ve had to ”deprogram” some students from this method …once they see that music exists and is expressed in chords, the musicianships grows and their abilities expand..( and fulfill the requirements of the gig) for those interested, contact me via private message here or at

” Learn a skill that will last a lifetime”

It’s time to make that resolution for 2014 with your bass playing a reality. You will become a better musician who can function in the world of music. I’ve taught many working pros over the years. My students learn the skills and information that I’ve used in the recording business and on stage for many years as a working bassist. Real World, Real Deal…I’m teaching in person in my home studio in Nashville and also Worldwide via Skype..

Here’s a quote from student Tyrone Coughlin:

” I was just thinking about how grateful I am for the musical leaps and bounds I’ve made over the past year under your mentoring guidance! I’ve been revisiting a lot of the chordal stuff we’ve covered and it just keeps getting better”
