My name is Philipp Rehm. I’m a bass player, producer and composer. But I don’t only love to make music myself – I also love teaching and sharing all the fascinating aspects of the bass! I coach students to expand their minds and assist them in their creative process. After 20 years of teaching experience, I know not only how to expand your playing skills, but also boost your creativity and musicality as well. I have taught master students and talented beginners, young and old – there is an individual path for everyone to achieve the desired goal. And as a touring solo-artist and sideman, I have a lot of practical experience to share.

A big repertoire, good sound and timing, solid technique and, if you like, crazy chops … let’s get your playing onto the next level!

"I studied bass with Philipp at the Mannheim University of Music in the preparation phase for my final bachelor's concert. With his many technical exercises and the practise plan that he made for me, he took my game to a new level and enabled me to get a great grade at my graduation concert. Philipps know-how is broad across all genres. With his tips and song examples he not only brought me closer to funk and fusion but also other genres such as samba. He has a very positive character and always seems to be in a good mood My study at the University is now finished, but the lessons with Philipp are far from over. "


“After I have been on the road as a professional musician for a long time, Philipp’s lessons have managed to raise my awareness and my playing to a completely new level within just half a year. With well-thought-out exercises that are adapted to my needs, we have effectively worked on the technical and creative aspects of bass playing and developed them further together. In addition, there was well thought-out repertoire work. Philipp’s input on my own projects in the fields of funk, fusion and rock was always very helpful – You could hear the difference on my recordings! In addition, his remarks on recording and production were very well tailored to my professional practice, so that I just got the urge to actually try out everything myself immediately. Thank you for the hours we spent together and the positive vibes! “


"After 20 years as bass autodidact finally lessons with Germany's super bassist No1 Philipp Rehm. Technique, theory, solo improvisation, slapping, jazz, funk, rock, double bass, electric bass ...... This opens up new worlds and approaches and catapults you on some bass levels. Highly Recommended !"


“Philipps lessons always come straight to the point. I went to him as a thoroughly experienced jazz guitarist, who now wanted to learn bass. Philipp has listened to my wishes and ideas, analyzed where I stand, and over the course of a half-year has gone through a considerable amount of exercises in various styles, each of which brought me further immediately. He always had plenty of tips immediately available, even if I came to him unannounced with new topic requests (which happened quite often). And personally Philipp is always extremely positive and motivating. A teacher can hardly be much better. Thank you, Philipp!“
