For about 10 eur you get a class from one of the best guitar players of all times. I hate using levels, but let's say it is for the intermediate student. She is a good teacher and gives clear explanations about feeling the beat, using guide tones and blues progressions with extended chords. The original tape recording is enhanced with extra features such as looping exercises in slow motion without lowering the pitch. Of course you can get the same thing with the appropriate software, but it's nice to have it prepared for you. Included is also a booklet with the music (chord layout, notes and tab). Highly recommended if you are serious about learning jazz guitar.
If there was an air flight to heaven, I would definitely visit her to take a few lessons.
Emily is one of my favourite guitarist. I have a great admiration for her. One some points I have another opinion than what she explains in this DVD, but that is mainly a matter of taste.
One minor detail: in the booklet there is a small deviation from what she plays in the first part of Summertime (i.e. ex3): she plays a Bm7b5, not a Bm11.

Les leçons ressemblent en tous points à la musique d'Emily Remler:
pas de fioritures, présentation sobre et efficace, tempo d'enfer, exercices d'application plus qu’agréable, et un brin d'humour en sus.
