Hey everyone, I'm about to move to Seattle for college, and as the title suggests, I figure that this is great opportunity to take some gypsy jazz lessons, since if I inferred correctly, this city has a lot of gypsy jazz activities going on.
In short, are there any recommendations for a gj, or even hot american swing jazz instructor in the Seattle area? I'm currently looking around and I thought this place will be the best place to ask. I'd reached out to Ryan Hoffman who previously played with Pearl Django, and he says his schedule is a bit tight right now. I'm not ruling him out, but also still keeping on the search.
I'm your standard classic rock player who knows pretty much only the pentatonic scale but loves gypsy jazz and American swing and hot jazz deeply, but when it comes to playing those styles, I'll be an absolute beginner, so I am very enthusiastic to dive into those new areas.
All inputs welcome and greatly appreciated.
Cheers, and thank you very much
