About Hugo Jacquet
Hugo Jacquet is a jazz- fusion guitar player, composer and teacher from Belgium. As a youngster he was mesmerised by the playing and sound of Jeff Beck, David Gilmour, Richie Blackmore…But is was primarily Jeff Beck (Wired! Goobye Pork Pie Hat…) that made him think “that’s what I want to do”!
When he was about 20 he became totally jazzy-fied by attending a jazz summer camp and decided to take formal lessons at the “Jazz Studio” (Antwerp). After the Jazz Studio (and many summer camps) he got his master degree at the Royal Conservatory of Brussels.
Hugo currently teaches electric guitar at the Conservatory of the City of Mechelen (Belgium) and keeps himself busy composing for (and performing with) his Jazz-Fusion project “Alien Groove Machine”.
Hugo is also the author of the guitar lesson site pego.be.
Also a work in progress: video lessons (soon, stay tuned).
