About the In The Style series:

The In The Style series focus strictly on the playing style of the artist. These are not general "how to" lessons. The goal of these lessons is to give insight on a wide range of topics relevant to the musical style of the artist. Advanced students will be able to immediately absorb and work on many of the concepts covered in the lessons. Beginner and intermediate level students will benefit greatly from the transcriptions of the numerous video performances with close ups when relevant. Music is like a language, and it is best learnt by surrounding yourself with better musicians. The goal of the "In The Style Series" is to give you this access, as much as possible, in the comfort of your own home!

About Tchavolo Schmitt:

In the world of Gypsy Jazz, Tchavolo Schmitt needs no introduction; he is one of the legends of the style. Born in Paris into a family of musicians, he picked up the guitar at an early age and was soon playing in all the popular spots in Paris. Today, he is one of the most influential players following in the footsteps of Django Reinhardt. He can be seen in leading roles in the films "Latcho Drom" and "Swing". He has also been featured in many Gypsy Jazz documentaries.
