Roy Vogt on Teaching and Teachers

“I WAS TRYING TO FIND A GOOD bass teacher in the Dallas-Ft. Worth area, and one of the top studio players said he was too busy to teach me!” says Roy Vogt. “I’ve since made it my business to never be too busy to teach anyone who wants to learn.” Now a wise professor of 53, Vogt chairs the Bass Department at Nashville’s prestigious Belmont University, where he’s taught for 26 years. But his educational commitment started when he left jazz-oriented North Texas State for the University of Miami (“North Texas State in the 1970s didn’t believe the electric bass was a real instrument, but Miami did”) and became the first electric player to achieve a Bass Performance Masters Degree in the U.S. He’s culled his ideas into a stunningly comprehensive 10-DVD/20- lesson course called Teach Me Bass Guitar [www.teachmebassguitar.com], a program he designed to take someone from newbie to groovemeister at his or her own pace.
