Just to let everyone know I will have spaces for jazz and classical guitar students looking for lessons this Autumn term in Brighton and Hove. I have met many promising young guitarists at the Brunswick jazz jam who are local or staying Brighton whilst studying at Brighton institute of modern music. Many of my jazz guitar students have gone onto University to study jazz and it’s great seeing the improvement when they return for holidays. I have taught many jazz guitarists for preparation for auditions on Jazz courses in London and also for preparation for the final performance at Chichester college on the Jazz course. Many of my guitar students now have the ability and confidence to go out and play professionally themselves in jazz duos, trios and full on jazz bands and I have seen some brilliant performances in Brighton and Hove lately. Other students, going down the more classical guitar route have passed their graded exams.
Jazz Guitar lessons cover many aspects from jazz theory, harmony, improvisation, chord/melody playing, single line improvisation, analysing complex jazz progressions and all time jazz standards. I also encourage my students to play at the jazz jam session I run at the Brunswick, Hove to get used to playing as part of a jazz band and in public.
With the classical guitar lessons I teach technique, theory and how to memorize classical guitar pieces which will stand you in good stead if you are looking to play guitar professionally at weddings, events and functions.
If you are interested please email, call or visit me any Tuesday at the Jazz jam at the Brunswick, Holland Rd!
