Before you check out the rest of the site, I do want to caution you that THIS ISN'T FOR EVERYONE. And I'm really not 'just saying that' to make it sound cool. The advice I give on the blog on this site, the lesson masterclasses and videos are for a specific sub-set of guitarists who want to learn jazz. So, first of all, here's a quick checklist, so you can quickly find out if Jazz Workshop Online is a resource you want to spend time and energy learning from.

IF YOU'RE CONSERVATORY EDUCATED

THIS PROBABLY ISN'T FOR YOU.

Let me clarify this. I love conservatory educated musicians, many of my closest friends are conservatory-educated musicians. If you're conservatory-educated, you probably know all about half the lessons on this site anyway. You don't need this.

And remember that these lessons are only focused on the concepts you NEED TO KNOW to LEARN JAZZ QUICKLY, so I'm going to gloss over a lot of music theory concepts and practices that aren't immediately relevant to that end goal.

Because one thing I've realised from teaching jazz is THE EASIEST WAY TO CONFUSE A STUDENT IS TO GIVE THEM TOO MUCH INFORMATION. That's one reason why guys find it so hard to learn jazz, DESPITE the fact that there're so many amazing resources all over the internet.

TL;DR - if you're conservatory educated, feel free to check out the masterclasses, and if you feel you've found any theoretical omissions or simplifications (example - "Why don't you make lessons on figured bass?"), you can realize that I've done that to streamline the learning roadmap for the guys who will be using these lessons.

Learning Jazz Guitar QUICKLY, EASILY AND EFFICIENTLY is like BUILDING A RACECAR.
YOU STRIP AWAY ANYTHING YOU DON'T NEED.

IF YOU'RE DOGMATIC ABOUT ANY PARTICULAR "SYSTEM"

THIS ISN'T FOR YOU.

Theoretical Promiscuity Is The Easiest Way To STOP BEING STUPID About Learning Jazz. You have to begin to realize that, instead of always trying to "catch up" with theory, you can selectively use different theoretical systems, based on how useful they are to you, and how good they make you feel about learning jazz.

IF YOU'RE A THEORY JUNKIE

THIS DEFINITELY ISN'T FOR YOU.

THE DARK SIDE OF ONLINE JAZZ GUITAR LESSONS...

Free online Jazz Guitar Lessons are all the rage these days. The trend has caught on, and the relative ease of making webcam video lessons has lead to a literal mushrooming of Youtube channels teaching jazz guitar.

Unfortunately for you, there's ONE BIG PROBLEM that many of them have: They're Only Teaching surface level "Tips And Tricks" without actually conveying the foundational harmonic principles that make a jazz lick or jazz chord progressions actually WORK. Even worse: some of them try to pass off random atonal "shredding" as advanced jazz concepts.

This happens when a musician with an incomplete knowledge of Common Practice Harmony, Theory and Voice Leading decides to teach whatever they know. Instead of allowing you to understand the backbone of harmonic movement, they show you phrases and concepts that "sound jazz enough" without actually teaching you the fundamentals.

Basically they're trying to sell you a "veneer" of "sounding like a jazz guitarist" but they don't want to do the hard work of actually teaching (or perhaps even learning for themselves) how and WHY Jazz Harmony REALLY works the way it does.

Learning Jazz isn't just about playing fast random "outside" lines or pretending to sound complex. Don't settle for learning half-baked "tips and tricks".

Don't Settle For Mediocrity.
