Barry Greene

Jazz Guitarist and Educator

"I've been enjoying the guitar as an instrument and its amazing artists all of my life. To me Barry Greene is just about one of the best; not only as a player, but also as a writer and a teacher. I agree with others who regard him as a world class musician."

 -Pat Martino

Hey, I'm Barry Greene. I create online lessons for musicians who are looking to improve their jazz guitar playing. I show them how to get much more out of the onerous jazz theory they’ve been learning while greatly improving the artistic side of their playing.

When I’m not performing or teaching, I can be found listening to a lot of R&B and Soul music. I try to stay fit by biking at least 40 miles a week, and have been trying to learn French for quite a while. Très Difficile:) 

If you’re dying to know more, here are a couple of things you probably don’t know about me…

I like country music.

I’ve always wished I had a voice like Brian McKnight, or anyone good for that matter.
