How much does a beginner bass guitar cost?

A brand new bass guitar of good quality, can be purchased from a store for as little as $300. Many excellent instruments can be bought in the $400 -$700 price range. Used prices will be roughly 70% of new prices. Yamaha, Fender and Ibanez are well known brands of bass guitars.

How much does a beginner upright bass cost?

Well, no shortcuts. A beginner acoustic upright bass of good quality, made of plywood, setup well, with needed accessories will be about $3000 new from a store. Used upright basses might be about 60% of that. Buying a used upright bass, with the assistance of an upright bass teacher, is a great way to start. Stay away from those $600 upright basses found on eBay and similar! They are not good instruments for beginner players to learn on.

Which part of the city can I have my lessons?

All across the island of Montreal. Classes are also available in the West Island, Longueuil, Brossard and the south shore.
