I am most happy to write a review for Dustin who I have found very professional, thorough, patient and fun to work with. His creativity to find ways to work with my learning methods, explain things so I can understand, and his wealth of knowledge and experience makes him a perfect teacher/coach/agent or a number of other skills in his portfolio. A high recommendation from this very satisfied customer. Thanks Dustin.

Matthew D. Nashville, TN

About Matthew

An Ohio native, I began playing guitar when I was 6 and came from a musical family. I am an active performer, producer, and composer. My goal as a teacher is to foster a lifelong interest in music and give my students the tools they need to develop their art. If you want to get the most out of your practice time and build a solid foundation on which you can continually develop, a great teacher can accelerate your development and get you where you want to be. If you are a beginner or even a seasoned player looking to advance your playing, knowing which direction to go and how to continue developing can be a challenge. Methods are many, principals are few. Understanding how music works will allow you to become your own teacher in the long run and that is my goal with all of my students.

So far I've had a few lessons with Matt and not only is he a great instructor, but also a great guy who is eager to engage with his students beyond just learning to play guitar. I came into the lessons with absolutely no knowledge of how to actually play – I was a fan and that was it – but I feel comfortable playing chords and scales after a few lessons. I look forward to my future lessons with Matt and definitely recommend him as a teacher.

Georgia E. Nashville, TN

About Georgia

Hi! My name is Georgia E. I have been teaching private lessons for the past five years in Boston, and have recently relocated to Nashville. I went to Berklee College of Music with a degree in Songwriting and teach voice, guitar, bass, music theory, and songwriting. I have enjoyed watching my young students go from beginners to advanced musicians in their age groups, write songs, and thrive in performances. I believe in exploration as a road to mastery, and as such, much of my lessons revolve around age and skill appropriate projects that I coach the students through. These have included all-original albums, recordings of covers, recitals, and student-planned concerts. My approach is to empower young students, and show them the joy and focus that goes into making music.

Georgia is passionate about music and her enthusiasm and energy are displayed at every lesson. She entices the children to explore a variety of music styles and encourages them to be creative. What I mostly love about Georgia is her natural ability to connect with the children. She not only teaches the fundamental techniques required, but encourages them to explore their own interest and style while developing their knowledge base of music theory.

I witnessed my children mature as little musicians and thrive under her direction. I have seen them flourish and become confident with every piece they play. I can’t thank Georgia enough for the great work she has done. I have seen my youngest daughter go from never having picked up a guitar to now singing and playing everything from Katie Perry to Elvis Presley, and Gypsy Jazz is her new found passion!
