    Hi, I'm an adult novice looking for a teacher in central London (Camden/Hampstead area) to help me define a learning roadmap and get me started on some jazz standards. Please get in touch, thanks.

    Hi Gnashville,

    THE guy to go to in London is Mike Outram. I had a couple of lessons from him when I was starting out a few years ago. He's the guy that his fellow pros go to for lessons!

    You should sign up at the London Jazz Guitar Society (which I happen to be the chair of) at London Jazz Guitar Society (London, England) - Meetup - we had a workshop with Mike just a couple of weeks ago. Our next workshop is with the great Sheryl Bailey on the 25th.

    Well, tell him to move fer chrissakes. Are there as many jazz clubs in Sheffield? Guy's too smart and too good not to share all his got. Also, he is a down to earth kinda bloke. I'd study with him, if I were over there

    Hey, don't be stealing our New York City players from us! Grrr. Now we gotta fight. Cue the Rocky music

    That's awesome that you guys have a jazz guitar society out there. Over here, we got the "I can play faster than you and my ____ is longer than yours" society in most of our jam sessions. Not all. I love the one in Flushin Town Hall

    +1 to that.

    Dave Cliff is also teaching in London. He is based in Dulwich. If you don't know him, you should check him out. I have studied a bit with with Dave, he's a legend, very experienced jazz educator as well as a acknowledged master.

    Loads of jazz guitar teachers in London, I mean where do you start? You could PM me, I certainly know some jazz guitar teachers close to where you are.
