 Jim Sutton Institute of Guitar Will help you acheive your guitar playing goals

 

Offering a Structured Approach to Guitar Study

 

Jim Sutton

 

 

 

I am the founder of the guitar school Jim Sutton Institute of Guitar. It was started it in 1984. JSIG is an international guitar correspondence school. We have students in Australia, India, Mexico, Canada, the United States, and elsewhere. 

 

 

 

The school features a structured form of study for beginning guitar students, intermediate guitar students, and advanced level guitar students. 

 

 

 

There are three core studies. The Moving Toward Great Guitar Playing Course, The Music Theory Course for Guitar Players, and The Modal and Solo Composition Course for Guitar Players. The Music Theory Course for Guitar Players, and The Modal and Solo Composition Course for Guitar Players, involves assignments which are turned in and graded. Having assignments graded is optional, but necessary if you are working toward a certificate. Corrections and suggestions are made where necessary. Certificates are issued on completion of either The Theory Course or The Modal Course. 

 

 

 

There are over 90 topic specific Supplementary Studies which work in conjunction with the core studies. These include Reading Notation for Guitar, Playing Rhythm Guitar, Timing,  Ear Training for Guitar, Blues Guitar, Lead Guitar Studies and so forth. All of the studies are designed to work together and formulate a clear picture of how everything fits and makes sense. There is something of value, and available for everybody from beginners to professionals.

 

 

 

The studies are all in hard copy. Students can ask questions through email. You can contact us anytime to update us on your progress and discuss what the next best move to help you reach your goals.

 

 

 

I am looking forward to hearing from you!
