Matthew is a great teacher. He uses songs you want to learn as the starting point for lessons, which makes learning both easier and more fun. I already played guitar before starting lessons with him, but I wanted to improve my playing, learn new styles, get better technique, and understand the music theory behind great songs. Matthew has a wealth of knowledge in all of these areas and more, and his lessons have made me a far better guitarist.Feb 26, 2019Matthew Chenoweth Music's reply
Thanks Nick! It fun to hang and play guitar! Glad we’re pushing ahead so well! You’re doing a great job!
Matt has taught guitar and drums to our two boys for 9 years. He is passionate, brilliant, and inspiring. He works extraordinarily hard to give his students an authentic, rigorous, and rewarding music life, complete with lessons and shows. He has become a cherished pillar of our family’s life and our kids’ childhood.Mar 31, 2019Matthew Chenoweth Music's reply
Thanks Matt! I live wirking with the boys and it is a privaledge to get to be part of the magic for so long! They are amazing young men!
Matthew has been an excellent teacher for our son. We are continually impressed by his level of skill and knowledge and have seen our son make great improvements in his ability to play the guitar as well as understand music theory. We also really appreciate Matthew’s connections in the local music community and his encouragement of our son to play in public spaces. We highly recommend Matthew!Feb 15, 2019Matthew Chenoweth Music's reply
Thank you so much, Kristen! Matt is a great student and an excellent musician! I think the sky is the limit for him!
Matthew goes beyond just where to place your fingers on the guitar - he puts the technique in context and teaches about the music as well as the instrument.Feb 14, 2019Matthew Chenoweth Music's reply
Thanks Jill! Jeb has a natural feel for the guitar and takes to it easily!
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I am pretty flexible on scheduling. I am always willing to work out rescheduling lessons if there is a conflict so that each student gets every lessons they pay for. Rescheduling usually happens on a different day the same week of the original lessons.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I like to listen to the student play a song or two of their choice, if possible, and see what directions they want to try to take their playing. At that point we can discuss the scope of what it will take to get there and work out the most efficient way to achieve their goals.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?Berklee College of Music, New England Conservatory, Boston University Conservatory, and an AB from Harvard. I have had 2 record contracts and toured extensively for 10 years playing upwards of 250 shows a year. I manage, develop artists, engineer recordings, produce recordings, teach performance and currently still plays 100s of shows a year.
