Sid Jacobs
JGS Teacher

Sid Jacobs is simply the consummate "jazz guitarist's jazz guitarist", being equal virtuosic with a pick or finger style. He possesses a pianistic modern harmonic gift second to none that calls to mind Lenny Breau, and was a devotee and close associate of the legendary Jimmy Wyble, whom he also compares to. Born In Miami, FL, Jacobs created the Advanced Bebop and Jazz Guitar course at the Dick Grove School and the Jazz Guitar class at the Musicians Institute (MI and GIT), where he continues to teach. Sid has performed with such jazz luminaries as Harold Land, Eddie Harris, Buddy Montgomery, Joe Diorio, Brad Mehldau, Larry Goldings and Javon Jackson.
