You Could Learn A Lot From A Player
(so why are you still wasting time with hacks who can't pick anything but their nose?)
Conti Produces Players, Not Talkers.
Had enough modes and scales? Ever notice how many teachers can't actually play jazz guitar? Then it should be no surprise why none of their students can play either.
The only reliable benchmark of any teacher is the playing success of the student.
We're proud to present videos of our students demonstrating their new skills - from entry level to highly advanced. Visit the Players Gallery to see numerous students playing what they learned. Talking about playing isn't the same as playing - remember this as you navigate the internet where anyone who owns a guitar is suddenly a teacher.
Entry Level Improv
Witness Dr. Kathy Durante's short term progress as she performs a full entry level solo. She is learning the language of jazz and having a ball doing it.
If you've already got chops and don't know what to play, Conti has you covered. Watch Lucas Costner execute a pro level solo without any modes or scales.
Lace Walker utilizes professional chord melody arrangements by Robert Conti and performs regularly on cruise ships. That doesn't sound too bad, does it?
The internet has been great for many things. However, we can tell you with certainty that the academization of jazz guitar has been a detriment to the art form. As stated above, it takes a player to make a player. Robert Conti has over 50 years of documented teaching and performing experience. You wouldn't seek heart surgery from a butcher just because he owns sharp knives. So why waste years of your life on amateurs without any evidence they can play or teach?
My Robert Conti Jazz Guitar Learning Experience
Star Student, Will Kriski
Will Kriski in stands proud with his new first generation Conti Guitar outside his home in beautiful Canada.
After nearly giving up due to years of college and frustration, Will Kriski discovered the Conti approach to teaching and playing jazz guitar. Having advanced more than he ever thought possible in a short 5-6 month period, he created a group on Facebook where others could share their learning experiences too.
