Advanced Jazz Guitar course

JazzGuitarFive two-hour sessions September – November 2017* (Tuesdays 5-7pm) at the Globe. The next course starts on Tuesday 26 September 2017. 

(* This coming term it is not every fortnight. The dates are 26 September, 10 & 24 October, 7 & 28 November)

The tutor is James Birkett, a very experienced jazz educator who has taught and inspired many fine Tyneside guitarists.

These sessions are aimed at guitarists who have established a reasonable level of facility. Topics covered will include:

  • Technique
  • How to practice
  • The structure concept
  • The interpretation of chord symbols
  • Harmonic analysis and substitution
  • Comping
  • Improvisation

Participants will be expected to attend all five sessions and to undertake follow-up work between each session (hence the fortnightly date schedule).

Electric guitarists will need to bring an amp.
