Arnie Berle

July 1st, 2015

Arnie Berle is a seasoned jazz educator with numerous books to his credit. He toured for years as a reed and flute player with many of the leading big bands in the country. Later, upon settling in his home town of New York, he became very active as a freelance musician and teacher. In 1964, with the arrival of the Beatles, Arnie decided to study the guitar.

His experience with other instruments, including accordion and vibraphone, gave him a much broader musical perspective of the guitar. In 1975, he began writing interviews and articles for Guitar Player Magazine, culminating in his very popular column “Fretboard Basics.” He is currently a full-time professor at Mercy College in Dobbs Ferry, New York, and writes a regular column for Just Jazz Guitar Magazine. His name is cited in the International Who’s Who in Music.
