Course details below:
"Vic Juris has been a total monster ever since we both hit the scene at around the same time in the 70's, playing great no matter what the setting. But he has taken the knowledge gained from a long stay in Dave Liebman's band to form a really new way of thinking about melody and harmony on the guitar. His playing is always musical and his pure mastery of the instrument is something to behold." - Pat Metheny
"Premier Welsh jazz guitarist. Among the UK’s finest jazz educators.
Trefor believes in demystifying jazz guitar, teaching his students what is important, and demonstrating that simplicity often wins the day."
