New to swing and trad jazz? Old to swing and trad jazz? Greg Ruby offers online workshops to take you to your next level! Greg is a superb musician and performer, an excellent teacher/coach, and a great person filled with enthusiasm, patience, and humor.
I’ve played music for decades and turned my attention to jazz/swing guitar about 10 years ago. It just didn’t stick so I let it go. I love the music but couldn’t get it out of my head, into my fingers, and onto my guitar. Greg has changed that over the past year.
Last fall, I started with the Foundations of Swing online course. It was a challenge. I loved it. I was learning, and bits and pieces of each lesson were sticking. The lessons are song/tune-based with a focus on one or more skills (rhythm, chord progressions, passing chords, etc.). I took full advantage of revisiting the videos and handouts between lessons and continue to use them months later. There was a wide range of experience among participants in our class and Greg had something to offer every person at every lesson. He genuinely welcomes all questions and does a fabulous job addressing them.
I moved on to a repertoire course, some one-shot workshops, and an in-person week-long Swing Ensemble class. I’m hooked and looking forward to Rhythm Guitar Deep Dive!
