Views on Gypsy Jazz School with Yaakov Hoter?

Rob MacKillopRob MacKillop Edinburgh, Scotland✭✭✭✭
I downloaded one lesson, number 6, and am impressed enough to go to lesson 1 now ;-) The boy can play.

However, I'm new to this style of guitar, so thoughts from more experienced players would be helpful.

  • I find Yakov's lessons to be very focused, which is very good if you are the type of person who can apply a learned idea to multiple songs. they are very good for the value, as well. I've purchased four lessons, some better than others. Along with Denis's series, these are excellent for the value.

    There is something here for everyone. I look forward to each series Denis produces. The setup is pretty similar for most of the series: The artist talks a bit about their views on music and the style, give some advice as to how they learn, practice, approach rhythm, etc. The second portion are etudes for common songs in the repertoire in each individual artist's style. For less than a cost of a lesson, you get a lot of material to work on.

    I know it's not easy to find other players to jam with but jamming is a great way to learn and consolidate the theory.

    I've purchased a couple of lessons and packages myself. I bought the Minor Swing series and the Ballad series. Both are excellent and packed with material. The Minor Swing package, in particular, is light years beyond Robin Nolan's version for the same price. The material is very well explained, and he includes printable materials for reference. Absolutely no complaints.

    I made a mistake with the Minor Swing lesson: I didn't realise it was in four parts, with a big discount if you buy the complete package - I just bought the first part. Looks like the important stuff comes later.
    I also bought the lesson on La Pompe, which seems very good.

    He does seem somewhat old-fashioned in his style, but that suits me.

    Yakov's laying it out there. I checked a couple of his youtube clips. He's logical , not obsessed by minutia , has a good sound , enough talent to have broken down what he's heard and the intelligence to present it. I like his voicings . The DC Hono lessons are also dope. Its great that theres so much good information out there !

    I hear you. Give me a couple of months...

    Actually, I'm a guitar teacher in Edinburgh, though obviously I don't teach this style. But I might get one or two of my students exploring it with me. If they click with it, I'll find them a teacher who specialises in it.

    I agree, Al, with your appraisal of Yaakov's teaching, and that there is a lot of stuff out there.
