Bass player Ian King has worked with The Temptations, The Supremes, Sister Sledge, Ronan Keating, Huey Lewis, Paul Young, Rick Astley and Albert Lee, amongst many others. Ian has toured arenas with Andrew Lloyd Webber’s ‘Jesus Christ Superstar’, ‘Dr.Who Live!’ and ‘Symphonic Rock with The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra’. He has held the bass chair in the West End for Dreamgirls, The Book of Mormon, Shrek the Musical, Sister Act, Hairspray, Fame & Daddy Cool and is currently playing in Hamilton: An American Musical at The Victoria Palace Theatre, London.
Ian has taught bass for over 20 years now and feels that learning classic basslines is the best way to increase your vocabulary and feel on the instrument. Also, breaking down lines and learning the theory behind them will give you the grounding you need to create your own killer lines!
Ian is currently giving bass lessons over Skype & Zoom. These platforms work well for ‘Screen Sharing’ when looking at transcriptions and working on your reading.
Feel free to get in contact if you’re looking to start lessons with Ian. He can be contacted through Instagram or Facebook under the name ‘iankingbass’.
