Introduction: I use a very student centric approach to teaching. Instead of laying out a preset curriculum, I allow my students to choose songs, genres or artists for their own learning material. My instruction will include the fundamentals that are necessary in any style/genre of playing, but I feel that by learning songs my students enjoy they can enjoy the process of learning and feel much more satisfied after they've mastered a concept or tune. As an independent instructor, I offer more personalized instruction that caters to each student's individual learning style. For both my online and in-person students, my instruction comes with additional practice materials that include custom PDF documents with tab and/or staff notation, YouTube links and even custom made videos that summarize the concepts covered in our sessions. I love being able to connect with my students and share my passion for music. As a professional musician, I take pride in seeing my students grow and develop their own artistic voices on their instruments. I offer discounts for my online services, college students who are enrolled in a music program and for students who want to take multiple lessons per week.

Guitar Lessons

Matt ahs been giving my son guitar lessons for about 4 weeks now. He's always professional and can tailor the sessions based on where my son is at and his interests in music. He gave us great advice from teh beginning on the guitar and strings that would best suit my son's playing style.

Guitar Lessons

Phenomenal teacher. Matt is very knowledgeable musician and doesn’t waste your time. I am currently a music student at Berklee so I’d consider myself the above average player with the fair amount of knowledge I already posses. With my experience with teachers, when I come out of a lesson, I only learn a few things that I don’t think are worth the price I pay for the hour since I already know most of what they were teaching me in the lesson. With the few lessons I’ve had with Matt I have already learned a lot in terms of theory, and how to navigate the guitar in a thoughtful, efficient way. He has given me different perspectives as well. Another thing I really like is that he sends me emails with content such as videos or print outs regarding what we discussed during our lesson so I always have something new to practice I can’t recommend this guy enough and he is phenomenal at the price he charges.

Guitar Lessons

I would highly recommend Matt to anyone looking to take guitar lessons! He’s very helpful and patient with everything we go through and is always super encouraging and motivating as well! He also provides notes and videos after each lesson which are so useful to study and have personally helped me so much that I’ve incorporated the videos he’s sent into my own daily practice routine. I’ve learned so much more than I knew before about playing guitar in just the short amount of time I’ve been taking lessons with Matt so I’m already very satisfied and grateful and can’t wait for the improvements yet to come! :)

I approached Matt for guitar lessons for my husband. My husband really enjoys the lessons. We think he is a great teacher. The pricing is very reasonable and the value is amazing.

Bass Guitar Lessons

Bass guitar lessons - Matt has a deep understanding of music theory and how to apply music theory in a practical way to cover songs or composing original work. ***** STARS = HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! He comes up with lesson plans specifically-tailored to the student's goals.
