About Matthew
Hi.. My name is Matt. I'm a very energetic, friendly, understanding & passionate music coach who has worked with students & clientele throughout the US. Possessing more than 25 years of music training & music industry experience, I've been able to take people's Playing to amazing levels.

In my musical travels I've networked or shared the stage with many famous NW music legends:
1.) Roger Fisher- Heart-2013 Rock-n-Roll Hall of Fame Inductee
2.) 2019 - I'm the Pacific NW Guitarist for Rudy Parris from NBC TV's "The Voice!" - Go Team Blake!
3.) Lynn Sorensen- Paul Rogers/Bad Co/KZOK's Spike & Impalers
4.) Donny Evola - Geoff Tate/Former Queensryche/Foghat
5.) Jeff Kathan- Paul Rogers/Bad Company/Montrose
6.) Doug Mcgrew- Geoff Tate/Former Queensryche Singer/Operation Mindcrime

In fact everyone I've mentioned above are pro all
the way and great guys as well. I"m honored to have played with them.

I challenge my students to view music more than just as a "skill", but also a tool to communicate effectively and to combat life's obstacles.

I have had many guitar teachers myself including one true Famous Rock Star legend here in Pacific NW. Congrats Rog. U Earned It, & inspire myself, & others everyday.

You got to know the rules 1st, before you can then break the rules. This is how you develop your own unique style. And it's what separates the Pro Players from the rest of the pack.

But even if you don't want to play professionally, maybe you just want to learn a few chords, licks, songs, for yourself, or to impress friends. That's okay too!

I welcome every level and style. I always learn something from my students.
That's what music is all about. Learning & trading tips and licks from other musicians.

Let me be the Music Coach to get you there!

Matt has a great background in music anchored in rock n roll with over thirty years of experience. He shows his knowledge with patience and step by step instruction. He has a firm knowledge base and an easy style for teaching. I would recomend Matt for any level of instruction from novice to experienced guitar playing.

San Diego, CA

View Full Profile

Learn your favorite tunes! Single notes, bends, fun riffs and melodies. My love of the blues and Stevie Wonder is what drew me to the harmonica, and I really enjoy sharing that.

In the first several music lessons we establish overall music fundamentals. Good ears (notes), and good time feel (rhythm). We also get the basics of harmonica playing technique, and a song or two. After that, we expand into whatever music inspires you.

My hope is that I'll help you become a well round musician and harmonica player :-)

About Jordan
*Experienced teacher and professional musician specializing in beginner music lessons.
*Performed with:
The Brian Setzer Orchestra, Great Good Fine Ok, Gilbert Castellanos, 10,000 Maniacs, Tori Roze & The Hot Mess, Gaslamp Quarter Jazz Orchestra.
*Recorded on national tv ads including Dreyer's, KFC, Coca-Cola.
*Over 6,000 private lessons taught to over 300 students.
*More than five years of classroom teaching experience in San Diego and Miami-Dade public schools: K-5 general music, middle and high school band, under graduate music history, directing college jazz ensembles
*Students have included: ages 4-96, beginners with no experience, undergraduate music majors, scholarship award winners, members of the San Diego Youth Symphony program, many locals in San Diego, and online students from around the world.

My mission is to p
rovide a positive musical experience for all students. For some this includes rigorous preparation for an audition of some kind, for others it may be an introduction to music fundamentals to foster better listening skills and greater artistic appreciation. All students will be challenged to improve their listening, timing, and technique. All students will learn to play songs that they love.

Recommendations for best results:
1. Make a three-month commitment to weekly lessons.
2. Practice at least three times a week, for a minimum of 15 minutes each time.
This formula virtually guarantees results. Bring your instrument, music books, and a binder with sheet protectors ☺

*Scheduling policy: No Cancellations. If the student is unable to attend a lesson as scheduled I will use the time to email a video lesson to the student. Other alternatives: online lesson, reschedule, add time to next lesson (based on availability). Students may put lessons on hold up to once per quarter with at least one week notice.

*Due to limited availability I am no longer able offer lessons every other week.

To continue weekly lessons, students must maintain at least 90% attendance or the time slot may be forfeited.

Good Luck!

Jordan was born and raised in the El Centro, California where he began playing the alto sax in the elementary band program. At the age of 12, he began his study of guitar and drums, performing in several rock and ska bands around his home town and San Diego. At age 14, is where he found his love for brass instruments when he took up the trombone. While in high school he became a soloist with the Imperial Valley College Jazz Orchestra, under the direction of former Basie trumpeter Jimmy Cannon. That lead Jordan to accept the Constance Weldon Music Scholarship to attend the University of Miami in Coral Gables, FL.

While performing in South Florida Jordan appeared with major acts including 10,000 Maniacs, and appeared on the Spanish television show "Calle Ocho." He also gained invaluable experience teaching in Miami public schools. His first teaching assignment was at Hialeah-Miami Lakes Senior High School where he directed 3 beginning bands, Concert Band, Wind Ensemble, and their highly decorated Jazz Band. Later Jordan moved into the elementary setting, teaching vocal and instrumental music for grades K-5 at Cypress Elementary.

In 2007, Jordan returned to California to pursue a music career in San Diego. He can be seen performing all over San Diego, Orange, and LA Counties in styles ranging from rock, jazz, funk, blues, hip-hop, Latin, and more. He performs primarily on trombone, piano, and guitar, but is known to pick up percussion, harmonica, and other wind instruments as well. In 2011, Tori Roze & The Hot Mess were nominated for a San Diego Music Award in the category of "Best Blues Artist" after the release of their first album "From The Hip." They released their second album "Turbulence" last December, and are heard regularly on local San Diego radio. This album has also been nominated for Best Pop album for the 2013 San Diego Music Awards. In 2013, Jordan completed his Master of Music degree in Jazz Studies from San Diego State University.

On stage, Jordan is a talented and versatile performer. He is known for his trombone sound and improvisational ability, as well as his positive relationship with his fellow musicians. In lessons, Jordan is energetic and creative.

You can expect a laid back, yet focused environment. Most of all, you can look forward to progress! Hope to see you soon.

Absent for an extended period. Became unreliable and communication deteriorated. Scheduling became spotty.

A sad update to my earlier 5 star review. My son began learning guitar from Jordan when he was eight, he’s now nine. Jordan taught my son to play from the foundation up and did amazing at it. However, he took a month off to go on tour and told us he would continue lessons on skype. The lessons however were once every other week if that, Jordan wasn’t consistent in the schedule. On Skype, Jordan didn’t have a guitar, he held clapping sessions with my son on camera. My sons skills began to fall and his confusion mounted so I asked that Skype lessons discontinue and asked that we pick up the in home lessons once Jordan was back home. I don’t think think this pleased Jordan.

After the tour, Jordan took more time off for vacation (which he’s entitled to) but upon returning home he didn’t call us. I eventually inquired and the next day we had the first face to face lesson in a month or more. Jordan’s demeanor changed, I asked to schedule the rest of the months lessons and was told Jordan would contact me but days went by with no response. We were forced to seek another music studio at that point. I wrote Jordan to notify him of the switch and to thank him for his past teaching but four days later, still no reply.

Jordan is a great teacher but I do not recommend him for young children who are just beginning. Inconsistentsy is hard for kids and having a teacher who is adored just sort of, vanish...was difficult for my son who held him in high esteem.

I’m sorry to have this as my update.

He offers all the right instructions to give you peace of mind and trust in yourself in order to really understand the guitar. He exemplifies the kind of qualities that I find most admirable in a person, and I really can't speak highly enough about him. He is incredibly experienced, and he is always learning and passing that on. He is so reliable, and I always look forward to my lessons! I highly recommend him as a teacher!

feedback on lessons and teacher

Any time one takes up something new in later life it is a challenge to stay with it and not sink back into comfy life. i have enjoyed my singing lessons with William though it took me a couple to get past my self-conscousness. It helped that he moved the lessons to a church--from his home. Better setting for singing practice. And william has done a great job of matching our lessons to how i want to develop my voice.

I walked into the first lesson having absolutely no knowledge of guitar. It was nice to have a teacher that not only taught me how to play chords but also gave me a little bit of history of the guitar. Now, only three months later, I can proudly say that I know enough to play whatever song I want! He's very patient and encouraging. I would recommend him to anyone.

Lebanon, TN

View Full Profile

All aspects of using the Blues Harp, Harmonica and How to use a Guitar and Harmonica together for full musical fun. Integrated approach so you can sing, play, and strum with ease.

About James
New 6 Month and One Year Courses Taught: 1. Radio Introduction Personality Broadcasting. 2. Guitar Studies Advanced 3. Music Industry 4. Advanced Composition 5. Sound Design 6. Abelton LIVE 7. Premix Setup and Post Production
8. PR and Promotions Business
Background:
I worked for Eddie Van Halen for five years in the 1990's in the Beverly Hills area of Los Angeles and was instrumental in providing help with development of the Peavey Wolfgang and Wolfgang Special Guitar by providing feedback on the prototypes Eddie was designing at the time. I learned a lot from Eddie and his brother Alex about music and the music industry. (All you have to do is pay attention! ) I have played in bands from Hollywood to Toronto and back both as a singer songwriter and guitarist. I bring the Musicians Institute way to the table and get things up and ru
nning quickly. I help students get it under their fingers fast and get it right the first time.

I believe in sharing the happiness of making music with anyone who loves music and the guitar in particular. I do my very best to get you playing the songs you love in Pop, Rock, Jazz and Folk Music of your choice. Today's modern new guitars are easy to play and you will enjoy learning Guitar right away. That is how it should be.
When you study there is a basic understanding of Guitar to be learned that allows an ease of use for anyone for years to come. This will help you reach your goal and improve each week. My students learn to practice in a way that feels comfortable and makes sense. This takes all the stress out of learning and gives everyone something to smile about and look forward to each week.

The good feeling of playing along with friends and taking a solo is within every students grasp. I will show you the way there. And with a solid and straightforward approach to the theory as it applies directly to the guitar you will feel confident and unafraid of any music endeavor. We'll cover harmony and fingerboard theory and give you a road map of the guitar neck that makes it a pleasure to play. You learn the basics and much more than you thought possible retaining 90 percent of what you learn!

Having been a student myself I was deeply involved in music since age 12 and played in bands and duos for over 15 years . I can help you to be a well rounded player and performer with a smile, a laugh and a joy for music whether your in a band or a budding solo artist.

*** Lesson Details ***
Most students want to play the Guitar to play their favorite songs and I'm the same way. Music is something we carry with us in our hearts and minds. Students will learn what they wish to learn and work at a pace that is comfortable to them. Whether you are a student, “weekend warrior” or a parent whose child has expressed an interest in Guitar anyone can learn all there is to know about Harmony and Theory for the Guitar and how to play their favorite songs.

We cover theory in an easy and straightforward no nonsense way in the first half of each lesson and then apply it to the song you wish to learn. This creates an atmosphere where you understand and feel at home with the Guitar. You get an understanding right away and because it is immediately fun it allows you to feel comfortable at any level. Music is fun, and songs are the creative expression of what we feel. Combining theory and the freedom to play and sing songs allows us to express ourselves through music. 
After 6 months students will have a solid foundation in theory, and a road map of the guitar fretboard enabling them to advance to an intermediate level if they are ready to do so. Students will know enough that music as it relates to the Guitar, which is the world’s most popular instrument in contemporary music, is not a mystery but is a welcome friend. And they will be able to play songs by popular artists and advance at a pace that is satisfying and enjoyable.

"James is my husband for over 10 years now. Over the years, I have seen James give guidance and counsel to many hopeful musicians of all ages, and inspire others about how music influences and benefits our lives. I would highly recommend James to anyone who wants to learn guitar, voice, music theory, and acting. James is a great talent, and study with him would benefit anyone with the sincere desire to grow as an artist. When we married, I had fallen in love with James’ conversational style, and his vast knowledge of music. When I heard him play guitar, I knew that I wanted to write songs with him, and we released our first album, in 2012 on iTunes."

I have an earned Masters degree in music and enjoy teaching students of all ages. I am happily married with 5 children at home--4 of them are musicians as well (the youngest is 4).. Students will quickly learn not only the basics of music theory, but will be playing songs as early as their first lesson. It is extremely rewarding watching students have fun, excel, and fall in love with making music. I presently teach music at 3 schools (1 college) and only have a few lessons slots available. I look forward to working with you.

Ronnie is a very good instructor. He’s taken me from a complete musical novice and in a very short time given me a good foundation to grow upon. He’s methodical in his approach, he notices and cares about my progression as a student. My goal was to gain some degree of control while using my voice and we have achieved the goal much earlier than I anticipated. It doesn’t sound good (yet?), but I at least have an idea of what is going to come out now when I attempt to sing. All thanks to Ronnie’s patient and thoughtful approach to instruction.

I've had a lifetime of experience teaching private lessons on the harmonica and have the skills it takes to help you through the process of learning to play in a fun, relaxed atmosphere. I've been a full time musician my entire adult life teaching and performing on stage, the studio and the classroom.

About Clint
"The Harmonica is my specialty as a professional performer and teacher. It's not my 2nd or 3rd instrument, but my primary one that I've spent a lifetime mastering. I've been teaching, performing and recording on the harmonica for over 30 years and I'm an expert on both the chromatic harmonica and the ten hole diatonic "Blues Harp". I work with absolute beginners to the most advanced professional level in a wide variety of styles. My lessons are tailored to suit your individual needs."
Clint Hoover originally hails from Minneapolis, MN and began playing the “harp” after seeing Muddy Waters perform. A rare breed of musician, Clint has mastered both the chromatic harmonica and diatonic blues harp. From modern jazz to pre-war blues, Clint has delved deep into the musical possibilities of the harmonica. A professional for decades, he's lent h
is talents to movies, commercials, TV, radio, theater, instruction books and countless CD projects. His own albums have received rave reviews nationally and internationally. He’s worked with diverse artists ranging from jazz guitar wizard and composer Reynold Philipsek, to folk blues legend Papa John Kolstad to Nashville songwriter Tom Mason. With a reputation of musical flexibility, he became a sought after studio session player. As a respected music educator, he was on staff at Mpls Community and Technical College, McNally Smith College of Music, The West Bank School of Music and The Homestead School of Folk Music. In New York City, he attended Parsons/New School Jazz and Contemporary Music Program and studied with classical harmonica virtuoso Robert Bonfiglio. Clint’s work has earned him a place in the Encyclopedia of the Harmonica.

Just finished my first lesson with Clint. I really enjoyed his enthusiasm and ability to teach via Skype. I was a little hesitant about learning via Skype, but I’m glad that we connected and looking forward to getting better with the harp!

I provide a clear, concise, proven path to success at playing the harmonica. I focus on the most important aspects at mastering the instrument. We also have fun as well!

About Tim
Unlike other teachers that teach multiple instruments and add harmonica to their list, Tim sole focus and expertise is the harmonica!

Tim began playing harmonica at the age of thirteen. In addition to the guidance and nurturing he received from his musical family, Tim studied with harmonica greats Cary Bell and Jerry Portnoy. He also completed courses in music while earning his bachelor’s degree with honors from Kent State University in Ohio. In addition to harmonica, Tim is a fine singer, songwriter and guitarist. An expert blues player, he is also accomplished in the folk, rock and country genres. Before moving to Nashville in 2015, Tim was regarded as one of the finest harmonica players in New England.

I've been playing for a while without any instruction and Tim helped me clean up some bad habits in the very first lesson.

Tim's method for teaching harmonica is enjoyable and logical. I can honestly say that my tone, technique and overall facility on the harp have improved so much in just a few weeks of working with him (after a year or so of trying to figure things out on my own via the internet). He knows just how to convey in words -- in a way that you can understand and implement -- exactly what you need to be doing with your mouth, lungs, etc. to help you improve your sound. As such his instruction can provide a great foundation for playing in any genre (blues, pop, country etc.). Also he's super laid back so that's another plus.

I always look forward to my lessons with Tim. He's a great guy and a tremendous instructor. His sense of humor keeps the hour fun and engaging.
That is not to say that he is not constantly challenging you. But he does it in a way all great teachers do; he communicates efficiently and effectively. Hence, it's pretty easy, if you put in the time, to make incredible strides with your harp playing. Highly recommend signing up!
