You'll love Yaakov Hoter's unique and ingenious blend of clear, concise, in-depth explanations, demonstrations that let you see exactly what he's doing with both hands and specially designed practice sessions that give you a chance to play along with him. You gain the knowledge, confidence and skill you need to play what you want and how you want it, whether you're a strict adherent to the Gypsy Swing genre or you like to dip into other kinds of jazz.
Yaakov Hoter took up the guitar at the age of thirteen and when his older brother, Azriel, bought him a Django Reinhardt cassette he was hooked. He majored in music in high school and college, and then his passion for Django's music led him to study with the Gypsies in Europe and then to establish his trio, Swing de Gitanes, pioneering the genre in Israel, recording and performing.
Then his zeal led him further, compelling him to bring his unparalleled method to students all over the world by establishing an online school.
