Matt M. Wakefield, RI

About Me

Matt M's. musical affiliations include some of music's top artists - from Trans-Siberian Orchestra, Steve Vai Band and Van Halen to Extreme, Aerosmith's Joe Perry Project, Journey's Steve Perry and worked with many well-known record producers.

Beginner to advanced students are equally welcome, as are professionals desiring a fresh perspective. Guitar is my primary instrument, but am quite adept at ukulele, bass, mandolin, tenor and 5-string banjo. Preferred venue for lessons is at my home in Wakefield RI, but will consider travel to your home or business within a 20-mile radius if schedule permits.

I also offer multiple-session courses and single-session micro-courses in other practical areas of interest - music marketing, promoting on the web and social media, merchandising, music theory, music business basics, home studio recording, copyright law, songwriting, music licensing, instrument maintenance, basic field repair, music performance tips and other topics. Drop me a line with your request.

A condensed history of experience is provided below if you're interested, but first I'd like to touch upon music instruction - which is why you are here after all. Lessons are administered in a comfortable, patient and enjoyable manner but also provide proven skills and traditional knowledge necessary for a fulfilling and worthwhile result. Individual lesson plans are created to suit your specific needs, goals and ability, but always include emphasis on the correct application of knowledge to help you learn and master your instrument in the most efficient manner possible.

Thanks for your time and attention thus far and I'll be happy to answer any questions!

Now the condensed history in third-person writing style:
Playing guitar since age 10 and not able to afford music lessons, Matt was determined to learn music in the formal manner. A regular at the local library - borrowing every music instruction book and haunting accomplished musicians throughout Boston for advice - spending every available minute applying this knowledge to his playing.

Forming his first 'real' original rock band at age 15, the band known as "Adrenalin" (with Paul Geary on drums, Gary Cherone on vocals and pre-Steve Vai bassist Philip Bynoe) toured extensively throughout New England in the late 70s and early 80s, opening for many regional and national acts of that period.

Adrenalin eventually morphed into the funk-metal band "Extreme", achieving a number of Gold Records - notably for the hits "More Than Words". "Mutha" and "Whole Hearted" based on original Adrenalin tunes penned by Matt . Extreme originally featured two guitarists - Matt and Nuno Bettencourt. Matt was living out of state at the time and pursuing other endeavors, and left the band several years before their major label signing.

Backtracking to the Adrenalin years, Matt gained a reputation and strong local following as an advanced player, songwriter and singer belying his age. A mid-sized Boston-area music school offered a teaching position which he worked after school hours and and weekends. Matt befriended and sought mentoring by other instructors at the school - particularly several very accomplished jazz musicians well-known in the Boston and New England jazz, blues and rock circuit - and further improved his playing style, technique and knowledge-base.

After leaving Extreme, Matt continued teaching music as time allowed, worked with many well-known and not-so-well-known artists through the 80s, 90s and early 2000s - serving as a session player, performer and contracted songwriter - and pursued non-musical interests in the business world as an entrepreneur.

Although semi-retired from the "big" music business in favor of slowing down a bit and staying close to his New England roots, Matt remains a full-time music and creative professional. Teaching, songwriting, recording and performing 3-6 shows each week, Matt is also a documentary filmmaker and author of books and articles on music, marketing and general business topics.
