Pat Terry

Guitar and 5 String Banjo Instruction

My name is Pat Terry and I have been providing professional, high quality private guitar and 5 string banjo instruction in Salt Lake since 1984.  In 2001 I became an Associate Professor of Jazz Studies in the school of music at the University of Utah, teaching private lessons to jazz guitar performance students.  I teach and play all styles but my forte is jazz and gypsy jazz, theory and improvisation.  My lessons are given with genuine enthusiasm, gentle humor and generous patience.  Beginning, intermediate or advanced, I can confidently offer the best instruction available!

I  have performed and recorded with several artists including rock, jazz, blues, fusion, latin, reggae, ska, funk, country, bluegrass, folk and progressive bands, not to mention musical theater and sessions in many top studios.
