I have been a student with Matthew for over 11 years. He has been an invaluable resource in my musical education/career. The thing i like most about his lessons is that he gives you the information needed to hone you craft (like techniwue and music theory), while also keeping you inspired to create your own art. Matthew's lessons are a must have for anyone wanting to elevate their understanding and enjoyment of guitar. Can't recommend/thank him enough!Dec 19, 2018
Matthew is the most affirming teacher of guitar. He tailors lessons based on what he sees in you naturally regarding music comprehension and ability. He reminds you to keep the joy of why you wanted to learn to play guitar in the first place so it doesn’t turn into a daunting task. The live lesson sprinkled in with the online 99 Decisions lessons is perfect. Also being able to take the lesson in the comfort of my own home is key.Jan 14, 2019Verified
We had a good first lesson. We worked a lot on basics like finger positioning and I got a lot of info to work on in my own time. Very flexible!Mar 14, 2019Verified
Matthew is a great teacher. He took the time to talk with me over the phone and get a good idea of my personal goals and current skill level with the guitar. From there it's a personal lesson each visit designed to fit my current ability and goals. It’s really nice that I can just book an appointment when I want or have time. I have a busy schedule that’s always changing so the ability to set my guitar practice around my ever changing obligations is nice. His online program is a great way to continue practicing in between lessons. I would highly recommend Matthew.Oct 2, 2018Verified
