Guitar, Music Theory
Whether you're looking for beginner lessons for you or your child, or are an intermediate or advanced player who would like to take their playing to the next level, I can help. In addition to teaching, I play guitar professionally with a variety of groups throughout Texas. I also teach weekly classes to students ages 6-10 at a public charter school here in Austin, so I am experienced and skilled with teaching young players.
Learning a new instrument can be frustrating, but I can make it a fun, enjoyable and deeply rewarding experience for you. I'm passionate about helping you or your child become passionate about the guitar.

Matt M. was born in Lowell, Massachusetts and found an interest in music as soon as his mom started playing songs through her belly with headphones and a record player. He moved down to Austin, Texas at the age of three where he continued to experiment with toy pianos and banging pots and pans.
At ten years old he discovered an enthusiasm for guitar and saxophone. Picking up those instruments for a couple of years brought him to playing drum set, jamming with his brother and friends, and listening to all sorts of music. His experience advanced in High School as he enjoyed playing in the jazz band, performing at different venues, and catching concerts.
When he graduated from High School, Matt decided to pursue his devotion towards music and enrolled in The University of North Texas. While attending he developed his craft on saxophone, drums, guitar, and worked on his technique with clarinet, flute, and piano. He also played in various ensembles and lab bands under the direction of Jim Riggs, Stefan Karlsson, and John Murphy.
Receiving a Bachelor's in Music in 2009, he stuck around Denton for a few years where he played in a variety of projects such as Bubba Hernandez y Los Super Vatos, Warren Jackson Hearne and Le Leek Electrique (nominated for best group in The Dallas Observer), and gained more experience in teaching. He currently is living back in Austin where he teaches, works as a freelance musician, and is developing other projects.

I am a two-time GRAMMY nominated Music Educator (2014, 2015), Schecter Guitar Research endorsee, and I play/teach 6, 7, 8, and 9 string guitars. I have an Austin Music Award for Best Teen Band of 2007, and was the youngest person to be inducted into the Progressive Rock Hall of Fame at the age of 17. I have performed with notable acts like Three 6 Mafia, Oran "Juice" Jones, Kreator, Anthrax. I have been featured in Relics Magazine, as well as News 8 and Fox 7. I have performed at NAMM while endorsing Dan'l Guitars and I have performed at SXSW since I was 16. I am a Berklee College of Music alumni, and I am a signed Warner Bros. Records recording artist.
I am an honest and focused instructor who strives to create successful learning opportunities for my students at every turn. No matter the genre or context, I aim to foster a deeper love of music and performance.
After one year as a computer science major at UT, I had a sudden realization that maybe computer programming wasn't for me, so I decided to find a new field to pursue. Without any formal musical background, I decided to try my hand(s) at music at Laredo Community College where I earned my Associate's Degree in guitar performance. Since then, I successfully transferred to The University of Texas at Austin where I was one of only a handful of music education students to take lessons with the world-renowned and critically acclaimed recording guitarist and teacher, Adam Holzman.
Now the holder of a Bachelor of Music degree in Music Studies with an emphasis on classical guitar, I view at all my chances to teach as opportunities to share the joy of music. I think it's incredibly important for my students and myself to feel comfortable, yet concentrated in order be truly open and curious. I provide my students with great tips from which they can monitor their own progress and spend time reflecting on how much they're learning. I also can help with music theory and history to create deeper musical learning about our art's structure and context. I've gained incredible experience and insight as a theory instructor, ensemble conductor, and private teacher for guitar students during my time at UT Austin, and I'm excited to share my evident passion with my students so that they may discover an untapped love for art themselves.
Let's make music together!
Blues Guitar, Guitar, Classical Guitar, Music Performance, Music Theory
Hello everyone, my name is Josh. I have been playing guitar for over twelve years now. I have a music degree with a focus on blues, jazz and classical guitar. I also play rock, folk, pop, and just about anything you want to learn. I sing and play, improvise, and write my own music. Music is my life and I love being able to share every bit of knowledge I have with my students. It is a blast to watch my students progress and get excited about guitar.
As a player, I learned what to avoid and what to utilize in order to accelerate my playing as quickly as possible and you will save time and limit frustration with my methods. I will teach you how to practice, which is the single most important part of learning. Effective practice yields great results for everyone. Often teachers will only explain the "how"; I teach the "how" and the "why" so you will have ample knowledge to grow and explore on your own.
I teach children and adults and build great rapport with my students. I was originally an engineering professional but quickly steered my focus to music education because it is my true passion. Being involved with music in any way is such a thrill and I bring that excitement into my lessons, keeping my students motivated to learn as much as possible about the guitar.
"Steven is very professional and extremely helpful. He always has a smile on and is serious about helping you phrase the music. I would highly recommend him to anyone."
"It's been really exciting so far! Jordan has been so helpful, so knowledgeable. I could not have found a better instructor and I'm getting better and better every day."
"My daughter's wedding was weeks away and I had never been able to dance a step. With Jenny's help, I came further than ever before in such short time in any subject."
