I chose Matt because he does drum lessons via Skype. That way I can use my own drum kit in my own house, and I don't have to travel. It is great! Matt is an excellent teacher who doesn't make you feel like an idiot. He is very patient, and professional. He is also a WORKING drummer himself. I like the fact he plays out and is not some old guy with a beat up drum kit who hasn't been on stage in years.
I've tried other drum instructors and Matt is the best. Other instructors always want you to open the book and learn to read music right away. Matt is different, he actually listens to you, and asks you want you want to learn. Most of our lessons are spent learning cool fills and rudiments which help with speed and timing. I really like the fact Matt shows me things I can use at my next gig. Things I can apply right away which make me a better drummer.
Bottom line, Matt is really cool and I recommend him for any age, and any skill level.
