Double Bass

The largest member of the string family and a vital foundation for the whole orchestra, the double bass is frequently used in jazz music.

This is the perfect instrument for a student who wishes to stand out, play something different and make a contribution to the Music department at Auckland Grammar in the process. Someone who has a background in piano and can read music will make very fast progress.

Instrument hire can be arranged through the Music department, subject to availability – please contact Mrs Mackenzie, the Music department administrator, for further information.

The double bass is taught by Mrs Relphclick here to enrol for lessons on the double bass.
