Reinier Voet is teaching jazz guitar with the specialisation gypsy jazz guitar (left hand: arpeggio’s, ‘lick-idiom’, understanding of the fretboard etc.) and the right hand (how to use a plectrum, especially in the gypsy-style).
He uses ‘the guitar as your teacher’ as a central point, how to use the fretboard as a visual self-explanatory system, which Reinier considers so necessary for the improvising guitarist: understand the language you talk!
For an important part Django’s guitar style, nowadays called Gypsy Jazz Guitar is a starting point. But also more modern jazz guitar, standards and general (jazz) improvisation are taught. And don’t forget: Django Reinhardt was a jazz guitar player!
He also does group workshops / coaching in ‘Gypsy Jazz’ line ups.
He teaches (gypsy-) jazz amators as well as serious students preparing for conservatory or professional practice. But the thing that counts is and will be making music!
