Introduction: Hi! I have been playing guitar for the last 20 years and for the last 8 years it has been my sole profession. I am a singer, songwriter, performer, and most importantly a teacher. I feel so lucky to have the opportunity to do what I love for a living and getting a chance to help fellow guitar players achieve their own personal goals in their playing. Originally I was skepitcal of the online teaching format, but now I have realized the experience is so much better! I have all of my equipment, piano, and visual aids are so easy with screen sharing. After each lesson I send notes via email on what we talked about that day including any necessary diagrams or charts. If you have any questions, feel free to reach out! Stevie

Stevie Matthews is a phenomenal guitar teacher, particularly for those passionate about blues music. Under his guidance, I've not only learned the intricacies of blues guitar but also gained confidence in my playing abilities. His teaching style is both engaging and insightful, allowing me to grasp complex concepts with ease. Stevie's dedication to his students' progress is evident in every lesson, making each session an enriching experience. I highly recommend Stevie to anyone looking dive deep into the world of blues or any other genre of music.

Stevie is a terrific guitar teacher who has a unique ability to zoom in and simplify your journey. He has an easy-going style, is super knowledgeable and accessible even when you aren't taking a lesson. I was a bit skeptical about doing online lessons. Stevie has made me a believer. My guitar playing improved more in two months than it did over two years, all because of Stevie.

Stevie is a super great teacher! He's very knowledgeable on all topics, has a ton of experience, and is an all round nice guy. I was looking to dive into music theory, which is usually a nuanced topic, but Stevie was able to break it down to an understandable level. I'd recommend Stevie for anyone looking to get lessons!

I've played guitar for about 5 years now, so I hope this review can help beginners and intermediate players. I found Stevie online after leaving my first guitar teacher of almost 2 years. I wanted more professional, higher quality lessons, and Stevie delivered on those two wishes in just the first lesson. Stevie was able to identify my specific problem - not a generic, vague one - and provide me concrete ways to improve. The problem had to do with my picking and rhythm playing, as I had focused on fretboard theory, solos and simple Blues rhythms prior, so while I was playing the correct notes, Stevie could tell my music just didn't have the feel it should within the first half of my first lesson. The practices Stevie suggested to me included jamming on triads and diads over a looped chord progression. This is a very doable practice. Compare that to picking out blues solos weekly only for my previous teacher to forget what he had even asked me to do and you can see why this was refreshing. Stevie always remembers where we left off and he always builds off of it. I never had taken seriously the analogy that your picking hand is your own drum, that is until Stevie had me jam while entirely muting my left hand. After creating music with just strumming, he helped me realize how quickly the music can follow by just fretting notes. It completely shifted my focus from one side of the guitar to the other. Stevie himself is an excellent guitarist. He can play just about anything you mention and you can seriously expect him to pick out any guitar part he doesn't already know. More importantly, Stevie is so knowledgeable and succinct that you will always walk away with an understanding of the why behind the piece. Finding a good teacher can be hard. I know from the experience of thinking a mediocre one could somehow get better. Stevie is the real deal. I highly recommend Stevie to be your guitar teacher. You won't be disappointed. Happy jamming!

I have been so impressed with how much I’ve been able to improve and grow musically with Stevie’s guidance! It has truly been one of my best investments. Stevie takes the time to listen to what you are wanting to achieve and caters lessons to reach that goal. He is personable, patient, and effective. I can’t sing his praises enough. He is a phenomenal guitar player; incredibly knowledgeable in all things music. His passion really shines through when he is sharing techniques and advice on what he knows best! Stevie is your guy, whatever level!
