This guy is just out of this world. His skills are excellent and he's extremely dedicated to his craft. Imagine what it could feel like if you'd just stop - - and start thinking about how you'd master playing jazz while working with him, now. I promise you, you won't be disappointed.

After a couple of years of constantly struggling to learn to play jazz guitar, I found Jishnus online jazz guitar lessons. I had worked with other jazz guitar teachers before, but never seemed to make any progress. Jishnu helps me to focus and find myself as a jazz guitarist. I have learned and progressed more in the past few months of working with Jishnu than I have at any other time. He places a focus on how and WHY jazz music is written and improvised the way it is, beyond the tabs and sheet music. Most importantly, Jishnu stresses the importance of execution and correct principles of jazz guitar practice, and teaches these principles at a level of detail that I didn't know existed. Thanks a lot, Jishnu!

JISHNU DASGUPTA

Jishnu Dasgupta
Jazz Guitarist
Bangalore India

One of the most promising young guitar players in jazz in India, Jishnu Dasgupta brings a contemporary, adventurous sound to compositions jazz musicians have been playing for more than 60 years.
A jazz guitarist based in Bangalore, India, Jishnu Dasgupta is part of a younger breed of jazz musicians in India, making music that is forward-looking whilst being grounded in the jazz guitar tradition of classic jazz standards.

His accessible yet intense style of jazz guitar improvisation, fluid lyricism and ability to expand the given harmonic structure of how to play a jazz standard results in a jazz guitar style that takes hard-bop chromatic phrasing and turns it on its head.

He has played within the many different jazz guitar styles such as bebop jazz, jazz rock fusion guitar and smooth jazz guitar, and is well-known for his use of an 8 string guitar for jazz and in-depth exploration of advanced jazz chord harmony and jazz music theory in jazz standards.

Jishnu got his start as a young jazz guitarist in Bangalore, cutting his teeth playing bebop jazz with Indian music scene veteran Tony Das. Since then he has performed with a number of jazz musicians in India.

An experienced instructor of jazz guitar lessons with a dedicated following, Jishnu is also known for his vocal opposition to the popular belief that “learning jazz guitar seems tough on a good day, and impossible on a bad day”.

To dispel this persistent misconception, he has consistently worked at making learning jazz pedagogy more easily accessible, fun, easy to get started and more enjoyable through his free online jazz guitar lessons, master-classes and online workshops on how to start learning jazz guitar.

A self-confessed autodidact, Jishnu’s jazz guitar youtube lessons and articles on jazz guitar theory hint at an advanced understanding of music theory. His online guitar lessons often make references to the research of Dmitri Tymoczko, the musical analyses of Heinrich Schenker, and tonal frameworks of Neo-Riemannian music theory concepts.

As a jazz guitar teacher, one of Jishnu’s significant recent contributions to the online community of jazz guitarists has been his adaptation of classical Hanon etudes into an improvisational language and format suitable for jazz guitar improvisation.
