Bassology Around the World Cuba 2023 Includes
In group and private lessons, Anthony Wellington teaches 21 hours of his world-renowned, results-oriented Bassology curriculum to get you out of a rut and moving towards your goals.
Anthony explains music theory and its application so that anyone can understand and use it to improve their playing immediately.
Because music theory is applied the same to every instrument, dedicated and disciplined students on any instrument benefit tremendously from Bassology curriculum.
Topics include soloing, improvising, melody, harmony, rhythmic subdivisions, time signatures, dexterity, and ear training.
Our small class size of 15 students gives you personal access to one of the most in-demand yet approachable music educators in the world who welcomes, motivates, and challenges players of all levels at the same time. We love giving a couple of scholarships to Cuban musicians because they add a richness to the experience that is hard to put in words.
Students always leave BATW classes with two invaluable assets: Bassology methodology that continues to develop your musicianship for a lifetime; and friendships and memories that last a lifetime, too!
You, and a guest if you like, spend nine days and eight nights in Havana & Trinidad in hand-picked B&B-type accommodations that Cubans call Casa Particular.
We love Casa Particulars that are preserved and decorated in a traditional Cuban style. In Havana, that’s Art Deco; in Trinidad, that’s a more traditional Caribbean style. We find both styles equally beautiful!
Students and their guests enjoy a private bedroom and bathroom and can socialize in common areas. All bedrooms have air conditioning. Each room is serviced with fresh linens and basic personal items by the Casa Particular host as needed.
Our Casa Particular choices will accommodate up to four students and guests, and only Bassology Around the World students and guests will be in your house.
All Casa Particulars are in the same safe and historically rich neighborhood as the classroom, so you can enjoy a walk to class if you want to.
As a “thank you for joining us”, we are including a traditional Cuban breakfast for every student and guest.
Travel Within Cuba
All students and guests enjoy transportation we provide, as needed, for the BATW itinerary: round trip to and from the airport, round trip to and from Trinidad, and round trip to and from class if you want it.
Sometimes we travel together in an air conditioned Mercedes van. And sometimes we travel in those restored cars that Havana is famous for!
Shows by top artists
We are treating you to a show by top-tier Havana musicians! Students and guests can choose between a traditional Las Vegas-style show or a contemporary artist.
This is another Bassology Around the World gift to say “thank you for joining us”!
exclusively for BATW
Our travel partner, Shabi, doesn’t just have over ten years of experience taking groups to Cuba. She also has a home, friends, family, and business partnerships that she knows she can count on in Cuba. She knows the cool hangs, the music hotspots, the good eats, and the great musicians.
Shabi will make dinner recommendations and reservations for you. She will arrange transportation whenever you need it outside of the BATW itinerary. She will make recommendations and arrange excursions for you for a fee.
Welcome Dinners & Daily Breakfast
traditional cuban food
Traveling can work up an appetite! So we are treating you to a traditional Cuban meal at Anthony Wellington’s Casa Particular on Saturday evening when you arrive in Havana, and on Tuesday evening when you arrive in Trinidad.
And every morning, you are treated to a traditional Cuban breakfast at your Casa Particular– eggs, fruit, fresh juice, bread, and plantains typically make the menu. And, of course, delicious Cuban coffee! I’m ready to book a flight right now just for a cup of that coffee!
As if the trip and group classes alone aren’t amazing enough…, Anthony Wellington is giving you three private lessons! Two lessons are before the trip and one lesson is during the trip.
These private lessons are so valuable to making sure you get the most out of the group classes that we are making them mandatory! We are so committed to your success that completing your two pre-trip lessons within 60 days of making your deposit is necessary to complete your enrollment.
Your first lesson is within 30 days of your deposit, and the second lesson is not more than 60 days after your deposit. That’s how we help Anthony manage his very busy schedule and ensure that every student is prepared intellectually for the trip.
Even if you are already a private Bassology student, you get two pre-trip lessons as part of BATW Cuba 2023. So you will deduct two lessons from your regular payment. Good deal, right?
2 Moderated Bassology Virtual Clinic Replays
Once enrollment is closed, and before we travel to Cuba, Tamatha will moderate two Bassology virtual clinic replays.
She’s picked two topics that apply to any musician at any skill level and any instrument. These two topics will help get you prepared to get the most out of Bassology classes while you are in Cuba.
Anthony taught these clinics virtually in 2021 and they are vital to your success as a musician!
