Who we are . . . .

JazzGuitarLessons.com is the online instruction site of guitarist/educator Rick Stone20th Century Guitar Magazine calls Rick "one of the finest straight-ahead guitarists on the current NYC jazz scene."  With over 30 years experience as a performer and teacher and an M.A. in Jazz Performance, Rick cuts through the B.S. to show you what you really need to know to play great jazz guitar.

Our teaching philosophy

Rick has studied, performed and recorded with some of the top players on the jazz scene and synthesized this knowledge into a cohesive but adaptable system.  Rick's master classes cover reading, technique, ear-training, theory, and repertoire.  This isn't dry academic learning, but rather an holistic approach to learning the language of jazz.  You'll discover how real jazz players think about chords, scales, substitutions, rhythm and phrasing, all while learning great tunes!
