Well I've been looking into going to College for Jazz, I'm going to start learning through my guitar teacher, well I don't see him for another couple days, so what could I start with? Is there any theory tutorials? Or any good jazz songs I should learn in my free time?

Thanks,
Derek

jazz aint a thing u can learn ina day. Check out some george benson probs best jazz musician of all time, maybe some chic corea, and return to forever. Also check out sing it back by moloko (suprisingly) although its a dance track, it is effectively a jazz song, with some nice modal jazz solos.

scales aren't a brilliant way to get into jazz.

I would reccomend learning your theory in relation to chords first. Not just differerent fingerings for each chord but how to construct most chords. Then move onto learning some standards. However as said it takes a while to become comfortable with jazz.

Also make sure to listen to other jazz musicians so as to get a feel for the genre in general.
