Hi there! My name is Stuart and I’m a professional jazz guitarist based in Australia. I’ve been playing for over 20 years and teaching guitar for more than 10 years.
I started out playing rock, pop and country and I was more or less self taught for the first 5 or more years.
I went on to study classical guitar and composition whilst at school and then continued on to study music at the Australian National University in Canberra, where I studied classical guitar, composition, and finally jazz guitar and improvisation, which became my passion.
After 5 years at music school I finished my studies and have been teaching and playing professionally ever since. I’ve played in many jazz groups, musical theater productions, symphony orchestras and even the odd rock band. I’ve also done session work, performed with some of the greatest jazz musicians in Australia and played countless other gigs!
My main focus is the creative aspect of guitar playing and I often develop that through studying improvisation and writing music. I’ve worked hard at learning to play jazz over the last 10 years and I feel I have become a competent improviser and have much knowledge and experiences to pass on.
I’m excited to share with you my debut album of original jazz compositions (just released) called Qualia – click the Listen page for more details.
So come join me, have some fun and play some cool music. I’m still learning everyday and every musical experience or moment spent playing guitar opens up even more possibilities and provides a never ending source of inspiration.
