About

Alex Jazz Live

Hi, I'm Alexander! Welcome to fretboardknowledge.com.

As a jazz guitarist and teacher from the Netherlands, I'm continually studying and teaching music and the guitar.

I enjoy posting stuff I find useful on this website, so here you will find a growing collection of scales, chords, and arpeggios, as well as patterns and exercises that will have you practicing and growing your knowledge and skill-set on a daily basis.

As I work from the perspective of an improvising musician, my main objective is that everything we learn has an immediate, practical application in a musical context.

You can visit the website of my local guitar school, which has been my main full-time teaching gig since 2007 (I teach  guitar since 1998). 

Currently I also offer specialised online lessons.

For more information you can contact me directly to set up online lessons.
