KEYS TO UNLOCKING THE FRETBOARD
When I was hired to create a jazz studies department
here at Ottawa University, Brian was my first choice
to fill the Adjunct Guitar position. As a faculty member
he teaches the jazz guitar studio, coaches jazz combo
rehearsals, instructs jazz master-classes, and performs
in the faculty jazz septet. His teaching is both demanding
and flexible. He adapts well to the idiosyncrasies of
individual students, and they are consistently inspire
as well as challenged by him.

I have known Brian Baggett for many years.
His method book, “Keys To Unlocking The Fretboard
provides guitarists with a step-by-step pedagogical approach to jazz improvisation and technique. This book is for all aspiring jazz guitarists young and old.
I can personally say that his teaching methods are
truly effective as by witnessing my own son’s
development. It is a truly amazing book and
a must have for all music educators.
