Personalized Online Jazz Guitar Lessons
Because of these reasons, and the fact that I love teaching jazz guitar, I have begun offering online jazz guitar lessons through Skype or Gmail Video Chat for beginner, intermediate and advanced level players.
Lessons can be done one-on-one, or you can team up with a friend for a duo lesson, which a lot of people enjoy if they are already practicing and performing with another bassist, pianist or guitarist.
Online jazz guitar lessons are taught using one of two free programs called Skype and Gmail Video Chat.
All you need is a computer, a guitar, a camera built in to your computer (99% of all computers have these nowadays) and an interest in becoming a better guitarist, improvisor and musician.
With Online Jazz Guitar Lessons You Get
- PDF of all musical examples covered in the lesson in both tab and notation
- Mp3’s of playalongs for any tunes covered in the lesson
- Midi files of any progressions or other improvisational templates to practice with between lessons
- Permission to record the video so that you can review it at anytime after the lesson

Online Jazz Guitar Lessons Have Been Taught In
Matt Warnock Short Bio
Over the years I have taught jazz guitar lessons and jazz courses at the Leeds College of Music, University of Illinois, Interlochen Arts Camp, Western Michigan University, Western Illinois University and given jazz workshops throughout the U.S., Canada and Brazil.
During my 18 years as a professional jazz guitar teacher, I’ve found that everybody learns in different ways.
Because of this, I don’t have a standard “method” that I use to teach, each lesson is geared towards the students wants, needs and particular way of learning.
You can read more about my background by visiting the Matt Warnock About Page on my site.
Lessons can cover any jazz related topic that you have questions about or that you feel you need help understanding or getting under your fingers and into your ears.
