If you are a beginner jazz guitarist, your journey to learn more starts in London with a master teacher

From its origins in blues and ragtime, jazz has become one of the more popular expressions of music today. Its influence is seen in every form. Learning it can be a tough job for any beginner jazz guitarist.

But it can also be enjoyable if taught in the right way and by the right teacher.

Learning the guitar is personal. It’s a lifelong journey. You want someone to teach you who has taken that journey and succeeded.

You want a teacher who knows the fundamentals and the advanced techniques you can grow into. You want someone who can guide your journey and let you advance at your own pace.

The London Guitar Institute has been working with beginners just like you in providing high-quality jazz guitar lessons in central London (Mayfair and the City), and it allows its students to progress at their own individual rates.

As a student there, you won’t be rushed, and you will enjoy the journey of learning to play the music you love.

Starting at your current level of performance, a master teacher will guide you to advance to higher levels, culminating in some events and concerts that build your confidence and bring you real joy and fulfilment.

Stefan Joubert is the founder of the London Guitar Institute and is a master teacher. He has studied under some of the great jazz guitarists. He knows that learning jazz guitar is both challenging and exciting and he shares his music appreciation with you.

As a beginner jazz guitarist, you learn from one of London’s best guitarists and one of its best teachers. It’s important to have both credentials because most students fail because of the wrong teacher.

A growing list of students continues to recognize Stefan Joubert as the reason for their success and their enjoyment of music. They like the way he answers their questions, organizes their lessons, shows patience, and explains everything so clearly.

That’s what a master teacher does.

Learn jazz guitar with the best in London

The truth is, learning jazz is arduous.

It requires a tremendous perseverance and the ability to keep on going when the going gets tough!

The wonderful thing is, that the London Guitar Institute provides the highest quality jazz guitar lessons in central London (Mayfair and the City) and knows exactly how to help you as a beginner jazz guitar student to make outstanding progress.

Stefan Joubert, founder of the London Guitar Institute had the rare privilege to study jazz guitar DIRECTLY under the late master jazz guitarist Johnny Fourie!

To give you a perspective, if Stefan Joubert studied martial arts, then Johnny Fourie would be equal to Bruce Lee! Yes, Johnny Fourie was simply one of the BEST jazz guitarists that ever walked on this planet! (He was up there with Barney Kessel, Jim Hall, John McLaughlin,

Stefan studied for hours at the master’s feet and learned rare secrets of jazz guitar and the inner workings of jazz!

As a beginner guitarist looking to learn, you simply cannot find a better instructor to kindly guide you into the wonderful BUT initially-difficult-to-understand world of playing jazz guitar!

A beginner jazz guitarist needs a good learning structure

If you want to learn to play jazz guitar, you need a good foundation and a good start.
The London Guitar Institute provides lessons that take you from where you are now to where you want to be.

And the path to improvement is carefully planned with the right techniques and practice methodologies.

Great musicians and performers, some of whom were thought to be “overnight successes,” had spent many years practicing and playing in unknown venues before being discovered.

Many hard working jazz guitarists have found fame. Among them, Kurt Rosenwinkel is a renowned modern jazz guitarist. He is known for his improvisations and hornlike phrasing.

Rosenwinkel has performed with other legends like Gary Burton and Joe Henderson.

Julian Lage has been called a “post-jazz” guitarist and has excelled in genres like be-bop, classical, and bluegrass. Lage began his career at age 15 with vibraphonist legend Gary Burton’s band.

These top performing jazz guitarists have one thing in common. Their apparent “luck” is due to hard work.

The same is true in virtually every walk of life. Mozart worked for 10 years before he produced any popular music.

Joe Pass is considered by many to be the best jazz guitarist ever. He got his first guitar at age nine and joined his first band at age fourteen. His father pushed him to keep practicing scales and playing pieces by ear, “filling in the gaps” with his own sounds.

Kobe Bryant, who won 5 NBA championships and 2 Olympic Gold Medals, amassed $200 million in his playing career. Part of his “deliberate practice” routine was making 800 shots every day.

Learning involves making mistakes and working hard to overcome them. Failure can be the foundation of success. Frustration can be a sign of skill development and growth.

At the London Guitar Institute you will find the foundation for developing the habits and structure you need to learn the jazz guitar. You will also find teachers with patience.

And through “deliberate practice” you will find the key to steady progress and enjoyment of the jazz you create.
