Jazz guitar lessons in east London

Do you want jazz guitar lessons? My name is Tony Rath. I have over 50 years experience as a player, performer and teacher. I can help you realise your dream of playing jazz guitar.

Whilst the internet has a lot of great content I believe that face-to-face lessons are the best way to learn and develop your technique. You will learn about and develop knowledge of music by studying rhythm, harmony, melody and finger style techniques.

You will make fast progress. I will teach you the essential chords, scales and arpeggios – we will learn some classic jazz standards and look at some advanced techniques like comping. First of all I will teach you the most common chord progressions used in popular jazz standards. Furthermore we will look at some of the techniques of the great jazz guitarists like Wes Montgomery, Joe Pass, Grant Green, George Benson and many others.

So if you want some jazz guitar lessons in the east London area please call me today.
