Many aspiring bass players who are looking for bass lessons in Orange County almost always inevitably come across Hamrock Music Instruction by searching on the internet, or even a lot of times by word of mouth. Mark Hamrock has become a staple of the Orange County music scene by first performing in various bands at such venues as The House of Blues, The Coach House, and The Observatory, and then becoming the go-to music instructor for guitar and bass. With over 20 years of performing and teaching experience, it’s easy to understand why.
“I started off playing bass guitar in (the band) Solomon Grundy in a lot of the clubs in Orange County when I was 19 years old. I was actually not old enough to get into the clubs because of drinking laws but somehow I got away with it,” says Mark. “I always taught bass guitar on the side… even when I was in High School, and over the years developed a method that has really helped a lot of bass players get to the next level.”
Mark has more recently been getting into more music producing and composing for film, dance, and video games. He still keeps a consistent student base and enjoys every minute of it.
“It is very rewarding for me to see students that started off hardly knowing anything get to the point where they are playing in bands and really enjoying themselves. I remember that feeling myself, although nowadays I think it’s probably harder to play in clubs if you are under age” Mark laughs.
