About Matt

I have been teaching guitar to students on the East and West Coasts of the United States for over 20 years. I was always interested in music and made my first “recording” at the age of 2 and a half. I got serious about playing the guitar when I was 10 years old after hearing the legendary Randy Rho

Private Guitar Teacher

I graduated from Musicians Institute in Hollywood (originally called GIT), a renowned music school especially for the guitar. I have had taken guitar lessons and also taught students of different ages for nearly 5 years before I attended MI.

I received an honors degree of Guitar Performance and Audio Engineering and have been on the Dean's List every quarter.

I will combine my teaching experience and what I have learned and summarized from my learning, in order to give you comprehensive, in-depth, straightforward, and easily applicable lessons from beginner to advanced.

When I was teaching back then, I sometimes focused on one thing at a time and didn't realized how important to combine all things together it is until I went to MI. I will cover all the following sections throughout my lessons, so that you will become more of a musician, instead of a, for lack of a better word, guitarist:

Technique
Music Theory
Performance
Improvisation

Melissa is patient, explains the concepts very well, she is hands on and makes the lessons very entertaining and dynamic. The way she selects the material for her students she finds the right balance between effective learning, fun and interesting. We are very fortunate to have her as a piano teacher.

She was so kind and helpful toward my kids for the fist day.

My daughter struggled to stay focused for the whole one hour. It would be better to have video conference option so she can see the teacher.

Jonathan did a great job. I’m starting from scratch! Patient and very understanding. Loved it.
Hope
John is a very effective teacher. I took bass lessons and I have improved so much. John is an amazing teacher and I would recommend him to anyone looking to learn the bass guitar or upright bass.
Steve
Jonathan taught me when I was around middle school age and has left a lasting impression on how I approach the bass and music 10-ish years later. Under his tutelage I learned music theory, techniques, and all sorts of different genres and styles.

His lessons were always very professional. I always felt challenged, but not overwhelmed, by the material being taught. He also made it easy to be interested in the lessons; he would always ask if there's any song or genre that I wanted to learn and that sort of thing.

Overall, definitely a 5/5 top shelf educator and musician.

I have been teaching classical and electric guitar for about 9 years and I structure my lessons according to a student's goals, and objectives on the instrument. My students have been able to learn tunes by ear, and understand chord progressions and structures, and play with a pick or finger style!
I specialize in rock, metal, classical and jazz, and I can also teach extended range guitars and alternate tunings. Learn to shred, sweep, alternate pick and hybrid pick like no one's business!

Poh Hock is a well-rounded and versatile teacher. He is capable in many styles of playing and has a powerful understanding of music theory to reinforce his teaching. He is very patient and relaxed; I never feel stressed preparing for or during lessons. He is able to tailor his lessons more around exercises or learning songs depending on the wants and needs of the students. I've been taking music lessons in different instruments for 10+ years; learning with Poh Hock has singularly been the most positive and productive experience in that time.
Phillip Wrenbeck W.
Poh is awesome. He's super talented and educated in music. He has a great personality and challenges me in a positive way. I'm always looking forward to the next lesson!
Julian
Poh Hock is a great teacher that really has a passion for playing and teaching guitar. His style of teaching is very precise and methodical. I learned a lot of songs taking lessons with him but more importantly Poh Hock taught me how to practice material that I was working on. The lessons were really more like guided practice sessions. While some teachers that I've had might just use the lesson to teach material and have me practice over the week, Poh Hock used lesson time to really drill sections and get them to sound good. I absolutely recommend Poh Hock as a teacher for anyone who seriously wants to improve their playing and their approach to music in general.

"Surreal! A gift for life! Thanks Dave

I am 56 years of age and have always loved music. As a freshman in college in 1974, I enrolled in some music theory classes and began playing guitar. Not one to discipline myself, I learned only some basic chords and a few little things throughout the years. One day I finally said to myself that it was time to "finally learn how to play the guitar." The good thing with respect to my disposition was that not once did I ever think I was too old to learn. It was a year ago on Christmas morning when my wife presented me with a card containing a number of lessons with Take Lessons. I was elated, anxious and excited to begin to learn what I had put off for half of my life. When I first called my instructor, Dave Murray, I knew this was going to be very edifying and very special for me. As a fellow instructor, I've come to realize that it takes a special person to really understand the needs of students and to appropriate a lesson plan that meets both the individual's elementary and progressive needs. Dave has done this marvelously. I can't measure the joy of success I've experienced learning to play with Dave, whom I'm here to tell you, is a tremendous asset to your organization. I was embarrassed somewhat when we began my lessons as I was all thumbs and very clumsy. Dave was incredible as he always applied the correct method that not only instilled my confidence, but allowed me to make sounds I never thought possible. I'm playing things on the guitar today that again, I never, ever thought were possible. Dave has a meticulous method to his instruction where he introduces things, simple or complex, during the tenure of lessons that are a future puzzle piece that logically fits somewhere down the road. I find his method of instruction intriguing and challenging. Again, at 56 years of age, I can honestly say, this is the greatest gift I could ever have bestowed upon myself. I'm never going to be on the cover of Guitar Player Magazine, but thanks to Dave, I'll always have one of the greatest gifts anyone can give themselves - the gift of playing music."

"I took lessons from William for approximately three years before work-life squelched my personal guitar playing aspirations. William was a wonderful teacher with whom I still stay in touch. He was willing to share with me as much theory as I could handle, in addition to a diverse exposure to blues, jazz, rock, and from time to time, seduced my ear and stretched my playing aspirations by having me dabble in some classical (fingering techniques). He also exposed me to various musical genres through listening sessions to keep me motivated and present to me endless aural possibilities to which to aspire. I believe I could take a life time of lessons from William and never get bored. He is also a subject matter expert in all types of gear: guitars, strings, and equipment. He, during my tutelage under him, had numerous guitars of all types, makes and models (which he would occasionally allow me to play). I miss my lessons and hope he will be active teaching, when I am able to retire, so as to resume my learning adventure."
