What Fret Dojo Academy Members
Are Saying:

Don’t just take it from me – let my students do the talking!

“About 2 and half years ago I got interested in jazz guitar, a totally new experience. For those 2 years I downloaded a mountain of stuff from the internet (free and purchased)… and I struggled away without any clear direction, until I discovered Greg and Fret Dojo. The difference has been amazing!
Greg has the ability to keep everyone motivated, he’s caring, clear thinking, very talented and most importantly – he’s completely dedicated to getting the best out of all the members – whether newbies like myself or guys that have been in jazz bands for years.

I can highly recommend Greg and the Fret Dojo Jazz Guitar Academy. It’s outstanding – go for it!”

– Alan Voss, Queensland, Australia

“The main thing I have gotten out of the Fret Dojo Academy, is that it has given me the confidence to go out and find a piano player, and a bass player who plays jazz. And now, we’ve worked up a set list of 11 songs, including bebop and standards, and are about to start gigging… which I don’t think I would have done that without the help of this Academy.”

– Mike Bryant, UK

“I had a lot of questions and issues with my jazz guitar improvisation. I was losing my place where I shouldn’t have been, and I was looking for something to close that gap. Greg does a wonderful job of teaching, he is very patient and very clear minded and clear with his lessons, they are very easy to follow. I think you’ll enjoy it!”

~ Mark Bauer, USA

“I’m becoming a better jazz guitar player and that’s the bottom line.” 

“Greg is a true instructor. Yes, you get harmony, theory, a transcription of a solo chorus by Greg, but Greg also keeps things moving and provides incentives to post recordings of what you have learned. I have found this great for focus and actually completing a piece of music instead of just “parts of the puzzle” out of context. This is different than providing the music material and leaving the jazz student alone to figure it out. I’m becoming a better jazz guitar player and that’s the bottom line.”
– Ken Niehoff, USA
