Private lessons with Lars Lehmann –
either face-to-face or via Skype or Facetime

I have been teaching bass for no less than three decades and have a great wealth of experience in passing on my knowledge to students regardless of their age and playing level. You can either book individual face-to-face lessons with me at my studio in Hannover, Germany, or, if I happen to be around during a tour, any other city. Online lessons via videotelephony have proven to work out great if we can’t meet in person. The length of your lesson with me is entirely up to you.
