Music is a language, your guitar a typewriter... you have to come up with the stories. The process involves understanding concepts, then applying them to your instrument and from there taking them back to your ears in a way they become tools you don't have to analyze or even "think of" anymore...

30-60 minute lessons (English or Spanish) via video-conference, all materials provided. You just need your guitar and a good DSL Internet connection.
FIRST LESSON FREE.

Jordi Torrens is one of the best Jazz guitarists Spain has produced.

In 1984 he started world touring with Latin Music Stars such as Moncho, Dyango, Armando Manzanero, Olga Guillot (with Israel López Cachao on Bass) among many others.

In 2004 he started a solo career performing the European circuit in support of his albums “Boleros de Ida y Vuelta” and “Vivir el Momento”.

In 2006 he’s endorsed by German Guitar Manufactures Framus and gets to perform at Music Tradeshows (MusikMesse 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010) and plays with legends such as John B. Williams, Reggie Worthy, Mordy Ferber, TM Stevens…

Other endorsements include Sommer Cables, JazzKat amps and Garrison acoustic guitars.

He’s just completed an album together with legendary bass player Hansford Rowe (Gong, Allan Holdsworth, Mike Oldfield…) that was recorded in Paris (with percussionist François Causse and Benoit Moerlen) and Montreal (with Joanna Peters and Max Sansalone). The album has been produced by Denis Savage (Celine Dion).


Jordi's taught guitar, theory and composition in Spain’s most popular music schools.

He’s published a music theory book (“Armonía Moderna y Otros Cuentos”) and has done clinics all around Spain and in Buenos Aires.

Holger Hansch: mi amigo

The ONLINE GUITAR SCHOOL would only be another of the ideas that never leave my head if my friend Holger Hansch hadn't done all the hard work to bring it to life. This includes all the website design and programming plus most of the really helpful tips and ideas to get me started.

And, as if all this was not far enough, he's also been inviting me to coffee day after day during the     web creation process...

Holger's taken the word "friend" to a whole new level.

Here's to send him all my gratitude.


La ONLINE GUITAR SCHOOL no sería más que otra de mis ideas que nunca pasan de darme vueltas en la cabeza si mi amigo Holger Hansch no se hubiera encargado de todo el trabajo duro para darle vida. Esto incluye todo el diseño y programación de la página web más la mayoría de ideas y consejos realmente útiles para empezar con este proyecto.

Y, por si todo esto fuera poco, ha estado también invitándome a café todos los días durante el proceso de creación de la web...

Holger ha llevado la palabra "amigo" a una nueva dimensión.

Esto es para expresarle toda mi gratitud.
