Seeking New Guitar Instructor -- Jazz and Classical Studies


My name is Troy. I play guitar in the local jazz ensembles, "Free Time Jazz Trio" and "Driftless". I also enjoy playing guitar for our local community theater, New Minowa Players. I've been playing guitar for about 15 years. I would consider myself a late-intermediate to advanced level player. I am currently seeking a new guitar instructor. My ideal instructor would be available for 1-2 hours every week (preferably in the late afternoon, as I work overnights); would have experience performing jazz as a soloist, and in an ensemble; and would be able to balance lessons around classical and jazz repertoire, technique, phrasing and tone.

Here are a few examples of what I was working on with my last instructor to give you an idea of what I am looking for:

Walking basslines with chords and melody.
Ralph Towner and Joe Negri arrangement studies.
Combining music theory studies with technical etudes.

I am very interested in starting lessons again soon, as I have not studied with an instructor since quarantine for COVID-19 started. If you meet most or all of the criteria above, or if you you know anyone that could help me then please feel free to reach out to me by email or by responding to this ad.
