ABOUT BASS COALITION

Experience Community

The Bass Coalition’s mission is to foster bass education and “bass up front” performances and inspire bassists of all ages.

For over a decade, the Bass Coalition Summer Workshop has brought bassists of all ages and backgrounds together to learn, share, and hone their craft. From classical to jazz and avant-garde to alternative, we grow together to help you make better music.
