WOODBRIDGE – Jazz Guitarist Andy Rothstein will share his knowledge of improvisational jazz-fusion for the guitar by conducting a workshop – “Hands-on Jazz Guitar Workshop” in February  at the Barron Arts Center, located at 582 Rahway Avenue, Woodbridge.

This workshop will teach the art of jazz guitar improvisation by providing participants with a foundation in theory, technique, and hands-on application using jazz standards.


The workshop will be held on Saturday afternoons, Feb. 5-26, from 1:30-2:30 p.m. and will consist of four one-hour sessions, broken down into approximately 50% lecture and 50% hands-on guided practice.  The cost for the workshop is $130, with a $10 discount offered if you sign up before January 21, 2010. Class space is limited to 10 enrollments and will be accepted on a first-come basis. Checks can be made payable and sent to: Andy Rothstein, P.O. Box 343, Woodbridge, NJ, 07095.

This workshop is intended for musicians of high school age and beyond who know the basics of how to play the guitar, and would like to expand their knowledge by studying the idiom of Jazz. It is not an introduction to the guitar, so a pre-requisite is that participants will need to know the basics of how to play the guitar.

For more information or to reserve your spot in this dynamic workshop, call Andy Rothstein at 1-908-565-1022 or email him at
