Tired of low paying gigs?
Robert Conti maintained a top level gig in a luxurious Southern California hotel for 10 solid years, performing five nights per week. How did he do it? Learn to play pro level, elegant sounding chord melody arrangements and you'll rival any piano player.
Two weeks became 10 years
The Irvine Marriott, a luxurious Southern California hotel contracted Robert Conti to perform for two weeks. However, the overwhelming guest response caused hotel management to keep Robert performing his exquisite chord melody arrangements nightly, in their gorgeous lobby lounge for 10 straight years.
BUT, you don't have to be Robert Conti to play these lush melodies:
"I have started by learning Robert's Conti's chord melody arrangements which I have now performed a couple of times in front of an audience at a jazz open mic night. They really liked how the arrangements sound and congratulated me on how well I played them. Before I learned from Robert Conti I knew some chord melodies but I hadn't the guts to go perform them. I think as well as teaching you - Robert gives you inspiration and belief - and I have never even met him. He gives you the feeling that you can shoot for the stars!"
Adam Hinchliffe - Huddersfield, United Kingdom
"Today I, (again!), ordered some of your books. The ones I already have are of great inspiration. I'm not a pro, not even a gifted amateur, but.....one with a good ear for chords and embellishing melodies, mostly the famous standards of The Great American Songbook, which I perform with a female singer with a clear sensitive voice and a bass-player. As you take many of these songs as vehicles for showing beautiful chord melody playing, I'm in the right place with your books. so ...to say it in one word: THANKS!"
Louis Frederix - Nijmegen, Netherlands
"What I lacked, you provided in spades ! I love Jimmy Van Heusen's songs and you've exposed his fondness for chromatic movement and tomorrow, I shall be learning your great arrangement. I've learned many of yours via your Signature Chord Melody Arrangements series and cannot thank you enough for removing the mystique and often high-brow pompousness associated with the genre. May you long continue to inspire, teach and amaze!"
Dave Jones, Saint Petersburg, Florida
"Your way of presenting harmonic variations and chord substitutes are easy to read - and a true source of inspiration. Some parts are challenging, but not out of reach. That's the best way to learn new things without being frustrated. My chord melody playing is improving constantly every day. Your chord melody books are to me, the most helpful instruction since I started playing guitar 25 years ago. Thank you very much for your great work."
Gereon Hoffmann - Cchifferstadt, Germany
What makes the Conti Signature Chord Melodies different from everything out there?
Guitar Chord Grids
Almost every chord solo arrangement in the marketplace is written in notation and tablature, which is often discouraging and perhaps, the very reason why most guitarists steer clear of solo playing altogether.
An arrangement is useless if you can't read it due to complicated notation. Always raising the bar in jazz guitar instruction, Robert Conti provides the student with the correct chord grid for every melody note. The focus of every Conti product is to get you playing immediately. So even if you cannot read music, you can play the arrangements like a pro.
If you can play a simple chord grid, you can sound like a pro!
