As a professional musician and university-level educator in NYC, I offer a unique online learning experience in guitar instruction. My lessons are an alternative to a music conservatory, providing an exceptional learning experience that allows me to give more attention to each student. With online resources such as videos, articles, slowed down solo loops & jam tracks, I strive to help each student reach their dream of becoming a great guitarist.

Even in the most remote corners of the world, such as on a ship during my overseas journeys, Ed Levy's guitar lessons continue to be accessible and invaluable. The flexibility of his online platform, coupled with the convenience of Zoom lessons, means I can continue my musical education no matter where my travels take me.

About the
Bebop Scale Boot Camp Webinars

Brian Hussey, Guitarist/Audio Engineer

Ed's Boot Camp for Bebop is a grand tour of melodic devices all utilizing the dominant Bebop scale. He's good at pointing out the motivation behind why this scale is useful. A ton of material here to start integrating into your playing and practicing!

Jeff Weisz, NYC Guitarist

Ed’s Bebop class is a textbook in jazz phraseology and idiom. If there is such a thing as a true ‘secret sauce’ for jazz, this is the closest thing to it I’ve seen.

With a methodical and well-organized approach that makes the material fun, accessible, and far less intimidating than it often seems, Ed’s Bootcamp workshops get you 99% of the way there to start truly sounding like a jazz player. 

If you’ve been wondering why your lines don’t sound like your favorite players and trying to figure out what’s missing: This is it.
