Renowned bass educator Anthony Wellington has announced Bassology At Sea, a six-day cruise that will be both a vacation and an education. The cruise will depart from Ft. Lauderdale, Florida on November 10th and return November 15th.
“This camp will be open to all electric bassists. It’ll also be open to other musicians who want to learn more about music theory,” Wellington stated on Facebook. “This camp will be open to all levels! Beginner to advanced. All that I require is that you be serious, dedicated and disciplined! I’d rather work with a beginner who is serious about learning than work with an advanced player who isn’t serious and has a terrible work ethic.”
Participants will receive two Skype or in-person lessons before the cruise, which will include two days at sea for bass and music theory master classes as well as excursions to Cozumel, Mexico and Key West, Florida. There will be optional evening Q&A sessions and a raffle to win a high-end custom bass.
Besides being an astounding teacher, Wellington plays bass in the Victor Wooten Band. For a taste of his teaching style, check out this clip from the DVD Groove Workshop:
