Herb Moore

Guitarist/Author /Instructor from South Jersey. I teach all levels and most styles but specialize in Jazz improvisation. My approach is unique to each student.
Driven by my desire to one day play like Chet Atkins I began serious studies on the guitar with local legends Frank Marone and Jim Zaleski; delving into a myriad of styles ranging from Classical to Blues, Rock and Jazz.
At age 17, I was hired to teach at M&M Music in Vineland, NJ, where I met Steve Girardi who became a tremendous friend and colleague. It was Steve who suggested I study with Bill Walton and eventually Dennis Sandole in Philadelphia. Dennis was my River Guide, setting me on a course that I’m still following 30 years later.
