Rory Stuart

New York-based jazz guitarist and composer Rory Stuart has led critically acclaimed groups and played as a sideman with a number of major figures in the history of jazz. Described as “perhaps THE most innovative straight-ahead jazz guitarist to emerge in years,” by Jazz Times, Rory has led the rhythm curriculum since 1992 at the world-renowned New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music; a list of his former students reads like a “Who’s Who” of rising young jazz stars.

The recipient of awards from the National Endowment for the Arts, Meet the Composer, and the Fulbright Commission, he has directed jazz workshops in Italy, Singapore, and Korea and performed and taught around the world, including in Argentina, Austria, the Bahamas, Brazil, Canada, Chile, Columbia, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Germany, Greece, Iceland, India, Israel, Italy, Kazakhstan, Korea, Poland, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, and the USA.
