Bass-Time Beginners is a set of six short and easy pieces for the progressing beginner bassist. They offer simple musical and technical challenges, using a limited number of keys and positions to encourage confidence in the early years of study, also introducing simple harmonics and pizzicato effects to create a greater awareness of the possibilities of the double bass.

The piano accompaniments are independent and supportive, written for the double bass teacher with some pianistic skills, creating music which is useful for both educational and concert use.

Written in a popular and accessible style, Bass-Time Beginners is aimed at about Grade 2-4 level and the six pieces were composed in 2010 for Recital Music's BassLines Project to create new repertoire for beginners.
