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 is an awesome guitar teacher. As a 30-something guitar/singing dabbler of 20 years, finally wanting to take it to the next level, I was in search of someone with solid guitar teaching and performing experience. Stevie is just that. His knowledge of music theory, practical application and performance is superior. He’s also quite fun and makes learning feel low stress and approachable. Our lessons are virtual and he’s great with tech, which also helps immensely. I always look forward to my lesson each week and have been having a blast be learning so much! I highly recommend this wonderful pro of pros!

Stevie Matthews has help me tremendously on my guitar journey. He is extremely knowledgeable and is able to explain how the guitar notes and chords work in a way that is very easy to understand. I was able to play a guitar solo to a backing track after my second lesson. The diagrams he sent me were also very helpful. He has been able to answer all of my questions. In fact, he has always said, “Questions are my favorite thing.” I highly recommend him as a guitar teacher.

Stevie is fantastic. Ive had experience with a few other guitar teachers in the past, and never really made much progress. In the couple lessons I’ve had with Stevie so far I’ve had some “lightbulb” moments and have learned and retained so much, I’m surprising myself. Stevie, unlike my past experiences, challenges me, asks me questions and patiently waits for me to answer. He’s a knowledgeable and skillful player and teacher, willing and able to share that magic.

Stevie is a really good teacher. For my first lesson he made sure he understood my expectations, what is my current skill level (beginner) and made sure that my expectations are met. I’ve taken many and regular guitar lessons with him since and I’ve always had a great experience. He always takes time to review what you’ve learnt and practiced and provides feedback on what works and what needs improvement. I should add that since the classes are remote over Zoom, the quality of the classes are very good and works well despite the remote classes setting.

FAQs

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    My continuing education is not only ongoing but will continue for the rest of my life. I am always reading books, watching videos and working out theory on different instruments. This is truly my favorite part about music is that there will always be something to work on. Also I love the fact that there is rarely regression in musical ability. As long as you keep playing and learning you will always get better and never go backwards.
