Super nice and patient guitar teacher! He spent time getting to know my goal and my background, and then provides personalized content for the lessons. Would recommend to my friends!

My son has really enjoyed learning to play the guitar with Steve. Steve adapts his lessons to each individual student and uses songs they enjoy to teach skills and various playing styles. Highly recommended!

I had a wonderful experience with Matt. I am an intermediate level, self-taught guitar player and started the lessons with some random knowledge of music theory. Matt listened to me and helped me organize the music theory ideas into a solid foundation. After the 6 lessons, I am positioned to improve at a much faster rate. It is exciting. By my suggestion, our lessons typically involved discussing musical concepts (modes, scales, keys) and then doing quick jams to practice the concepts and "hear the differences". He plays guitar very well. This was apparent when he played rhythm guitar for me to try scales or when he took lead to showcase a musical idea. Overall, I highly recommend Matt. If you are interested in music theory, he was extremely knowledgable. Usefully, he was careful with vocabulary and was quick to recognize when I was misunderstanding a concept. Good luck Matt!

Charlie is an excellent teacher and right from the beginning was able to answer every question I had regarding jazz guitar. He is very kind, patient, and obviously has a lot of experience and expertise. I look forward to future lessons with him!

Matt is an awesome guitarist that really knows every aspect about music. His teaching style is very helpful, for he is patient, kind and corrective. He is also very flexible with lessons. I feel like I am a better guitarist already just from a few lessons from him. I highly recommend Matt to anyone that wants to start playing guitar or advance their skills!

Steve is great! Not only is he a genuinely nice guy, he also genuinely wants to help improve your guitar skills! His teaching approach includes a nice mix of theory and technique, while helping you learn songs that are both fun to play and expand your abilities. He’s also great about providing easy access to lessons, songs, and other information via the web. Beyond teaching me some new songs and chords, Steve really helped me understand what I was playing and how I might play it better.

In my experience, Matt is unparalleled in the professionalism and expertise he displays with every lesson. The following are reasons why Matt should be hired over any other tutor: Knowledge and Expertise - With his degree, he is able to cover a broad variety of topics and play styles. For example, I expressed my desire for more intermediate to advanced lessons, so we have been covering topics of Music Theory such as Modes, musical composition, and Arpeggio. He always knows how to pace the class well, as well as provides various study materials to help with solo practice. Broad Range - While he specializes in Jazz, he is also very well versed in many other genres such as but not limited to Blues, Rock, Metal, Alternative, Classical, etc. He also knows how to uniquely blend one style into another, so he would be a great choice for anyone looking for help in their own unique sound. Punctuality and Flexibility - Matt has never been late. Ever. He is also very understanding and accommodating to schedule changes. Wow Factor - He plays the guitar so well that my cat just sits and watches him during our lessons. I highly recommend Matt as your next tutor, as I am certain he is not capable of disappointing anyone. He is the perfect choice for both novices looking to learn from scratch, or professionals looking to develop their knowledge of music theory.
