I teach Gypsy Jazz guitar in the style of Django Reinhardt either one-to-one or online.

Covering all aspects of this amazing acoustic guitar genre made famous initially in the 30's, 40's and early 50's by Django Reinhardt and later by modern day exponents such as Bireli Lagrene, Dorado Schmitt, Stocholo Rosenberg and Angelo Debarre

Whether you're a beginner, intermediate or advanced, I can help you advance your playing to the next level.

I offer one-to-one sessions either hourly or 4.5 hour day sessions at my home in Kent, England and also via Zoom, FaceTime or Skype online anywhere in the U.K and worldwide.

I have over twenty five years professional performance and teaching experience in Gypsy Jazz guitar alone, with many ex-students going on to become full-time pro players.

If you're looking for rhythm tips and advice, I have some great methods to help you achieve a better understanding of how rhythm works in Gypsy Jazz and how it will also benefit improvising over chord sequences in a Gypsy Jazz style.

With improvisation and melodies, I have lots of cool tips and devices that will help you push your picking technique to new levels.

All my tuition/coaching sessions are geared towards your own individual requirements. I'm always keen to find out about your playing level and what your goals are before any session gets booked in.

Here's a FREE taster video tutorial over one chorus of 'Minor Swing'. This has a 'classical' style feel to it, the concept of which is very good to throw in on a 'jam' when everyone else has maybe used a different soloing approach.

It's great for switching from 2 note interval lines to arpeggios in a short space of time. I play each section at a couple of slower tempos and you can even use the 'slow down' feature on YouTube to reduce it to a snail's pace!

There's a written explanation/breakdown on the notes below the video.
