Meet Your “Real” Teacher

Marc-Andre Seguin, Canadian thirty-something jazzer, teacher and composer at times. I graduated twice with music degrees from renowned music schools (classical and Jazz) and have over 15 years of music teaching experience (including the last 7 years on Skype, through this website).

Most of all, I’m dedicated to the music, to this website and I have a passion for teaching and explaining stuff to others. This is probably why this online jazz guitar school is one of the most genuine and honest you’ll find on the internet.

If you ever have a question, comment or if you simply want to say “Hi,” please drop me a line! I truly exist “for real” and it’s always a pleasure to hear from you. Seriously.

Practice well, enjoy your stay and keep in touch.

Your Teacher,

« First, as always, I must thank you for your TRULY EXTRAORDINARY generosity in providing such organized, helpful, clear content for FREE! Surely you have a place in guitar heaven for this. But secondly, I must point out again that you are as advertised – a REAL TEACHER. »

« Aside from being a great (and VERY patient) teacher, he’s become a GREAT friend.  No matter what level of player you are, there’s simply no reason to overlook Marc and what he has to offer.  I could gush on for hours about this guy! »

« I’ve been a member of your site for only a month but I’ve learned more about chord melody in that month than in the previous five years of trying to figure chord melody out. i wasted so much money with other material. Thanks »
