In a small coastal town, just outside of the Western Cape, I began playing the drums. At the tender age of 16, my now mentor, had spotted a young struggling boy with what he described as, ‘a feel for rhythm’.
That was 6 years ago.
So grateful for that opportunity, I can now gladly say that I am a skilled drummer, having had mastered my instrument. My passion for music continues to grow with my next mission being learning to master the bass guitar.
Unfortunately the cost of guitar lessons, an amp, a tuner and needed accessories extend beyond what I can afford. I have recently gotten married and so my responsibilities primarily lie with in providing for my young family. A second hand bass guitar was gifted me by a friend for which I am eternally grateful. A step towards fulfilment. I am 23 years old and my dream to master the bass burns so strongly in my heart that I turn to you for help.
Scottsbasslessons.com has proven to be an excellent platform for learning. A Cort GE15B Bass Combo Amplifier makes performances possible. The BOSS TU-3 Chromatic Tuner for the essential task of keeping your instrument accurately tuned. Accessories like a guitar strap, bass pedals, guitar jacks etc. are all of the tools necessary to bring life to this dream.
$525 will see this mission fulfilled and any help will go a very long way.
As a young South African musician there is much to still be accomplished. Your contributions will grow my community and touch the lives of many as I give my gifts freely and continue to empower those who began humbly, as I did. Thank you.
