As a performing jazz guitarist for nearly five decades, Robert Conti is ranked in the top handful of the world's greatest players by knowledgeable musicians and fans. His skill and a vast repertoire keeps him in demand to perform at numerous venues from Jazz Clubs and festivals to First Class Hotels including The Bellagio and Paris Las Vegas and ongoing Corporate Events in California and Las Vegas.
Please enjoy numerous performance videos and five decades of photo galleries that document a very successful career. There are also volumes of press notices and rave reviews since the mid sixties that continuously cite the mind-boggling skills of Robert Conti.
In addition to his live performances, other career highlights in the last decade include: the 2009 introduction of Conti Archtop Jazz Guitars - a high quality instrument with emphasis on affordability for the majority of guitarists: multiple performances at the NAMM All Star Guitar Night and Guitar Player Magazine's 40th Anniversary VIP Party: the CD release of "To The Brink!" recorded in Las Vegas: a major cover story in the prestigious Just Jazz Guitar Magazine, of which he is also a regularly featured columnist.
While there are many excellent jazz players, as you probably discovered, there are very few who can effectively teach their acquired skills to others. As self-evident, Conti's playing skills will dazzle any audience. However, in his role as an educator, it is his ability to place his skills under your fingers that places him in the forefront of highly successful jazz educators.
A reliable indication of any educator's ability is the verifiable student demand for his/her learning skills. As the result of worldwide student satisfaction, Robert Conti recently released his Thirtieth DVD to meet the intense demand for his teaching ability. 30 DVDs from one educator is unprecedented in the history of jazz guitar and more importantly, it is a bona fide testimonial to the superb teaching skill of Robert Conti, who is clearly the most prolific jazz guitar educator on the international scene today,
Since 1966, the success of the Conti's No Modes No Scales® approach is the result of one very simple principle: Conti teaches students to play jazz, by playing jazz - not modes and scales. If a photo is worth a thousand words, then our "Student Success Stories On Video" will surely evidence beyond any doubt, that any blues or rock player with some technical ability can start playing jazz lines over the chord progression to standards in a few hours. Robert Conti has clearly debunked the ridiculous myth that modes are necessary to play jazz. To summarize, Robert Conti places skill under your fingers that will have you playing at jam sessions, not talking about useless modes, scales etc.
Why Learn From Robert Conti?
Every player/educator should be the end result of his teaching method - Conti practices what he teaches and teaches you everything he knows.
He has taught since 1966, with an unwavering No Modes No Scales® approach to jazz guitar.
30 successful DVD releases (When was the last time you made a 2nd or 3rd purchase of a product that didn't work?)
He maintained a 10 year solid gig in a luxurious Southern California business hotel.
Unlike other educators, he has the firepower to back up everything he says (see our students' comments)
Consider that every doctor, lawyer, engineer etc, must obtain educational and regulatory approval to legally practice medicine, design buildings and bridges. However, boatloads of products are usually presented by an army of amateurs whose credentials amount to nothing more than ownership of a guitar. Those amateurs flagrantly present themselves as professionals in the belief that they have some inherent "right" to make some quick bucks on the internet.
I am really buzzing with jazz guitar now!
'Chord Melodies' edge me forward to playing solo gigs in the next couple of years, 'The Assembly Line' pushes me quickly towards making my own arrangements, and 'Ticket To Improv' is honing my soloing skills.

A month with this material has done more for my technique than the countless hours spent with the cardboard box full of technique books now exiled to my closet. This material synchronizes the right and left hands. The Wohlfahrt pieces run from 20-40 measures, so it isn't simply repeating one short f...
Hello again Bob and Co! I have finally decided what I want to do musically, and turned my focus back to jazz chord melodies. My serious aim is to be able to play a good (and large enough) set of them at weddings, etc. Of course, the 'Chord Melody Assembly Line' book and DVD were my first port of cal...
