Lars is an awesome instructor. Very knowledgeable and also very articulate with his instructions. I highly recommend him. I am an absolute beginner and yet he was able to share so much in the very first lesson itself! He also makes learning fun.

I appreciate Marc’s knowledge, professionalism, and teaching methods. I also appreciate his practice of social distancing and mask wearing. He was thorough, good-humored, and patient during my lesson.
Roger H.
He is very good with me. I'm not a very good student. I have bad habits and I'm overly sensitive to criticism, yet he has not made me feel bad at all about my playing if you want to call it that. I also have a short attention span and can't read music fluently. But his patience is much appreciated, and each week get a little better at it all. I recommend him to those trying their best to sound a little better.

Matt is great! He is very patient and explains things step-by-step in a very comprehensive and easy to understand manner. And best of all, he never makes you feel like any questions you ask, is irrelevant or repetitious. I highly recommend Matt, and plan on continuing to take lessons from him in the future!!
Amber
I really enjoyed lessons with Matt! I showed him a song that I created in Ableton, and he was able to bring the song to the next level. He helped me tighten up my drum grooves, and showed me how to change my drum sounds to get a much higher quality sound from my drum tracks...... I play a little guitar, and he was able to teach me some cool chords that fit into my song wonderfully. He also showed me how to record my guitar into Ableton and get the right kind of sound for my song. It was a really great experience and I would absolutely recommend Matt to anyone looking for Ableton , music production, or guitar instruction!
Fiona M.
Absolute joy to be taught by Matt, knowledgeable, encouraging and enthusiastic. (Timely as well if that's important to you!), i learnt an awful lot from Matt and felt fortunate to have chosen him as my teacher.

As a guitar teacher I hope to simplify the learning experience as much as possible. I hope to provide a sound foundation of musical knowledge to my students so that they can develop as players and become free to create their own music. I enjoy teaching the art of improvisation, and am knowledgeable in both reading and theory. I hope to always make the learning process enjoyable and rewarding.

"Russell is an amazing guitar teacher! He continuously makes the guitar lessons with my son fun and exciting which is extremely important for an active 9 year old. Russell is a patient and dedicated teacher. My son took a couple of lessons with another teacher prior to Russell and was not inspired to continue with his lessons. With Russell, my son is motivated and excited to demonstrate his progress. He has started to venture into drafting his own lyrics and matching them to guitar chords. As a parent, it is very rewarding to see your child take such interest in an instrument, in part due to his great guitar teacher."

"Tony has been teaching me for nine years and he truly believes in teaching his students not only the basics of learning the guitar but why the instrument is such a privilege to play and teaches based on the students ability. He also teaches the history and evolution of the guitar and also facts that i never knew that made me very proud to play such an instrument. He sees the potential in the student and encourages them to go beyond where they think they can go and makes it happen. Tony slowly built up motivation in me to keep exploring on my own and he planted the seed of wanting to practice to the point where playing guitar became one of the most important things in my life and i do not think another teacher could have done the same thing. I started to explore YouTube and teach myself a lot of the songs i wanted to learn starting with chords, then finger picking, then adding percussion, and finally putting all three together in many arrangements. I would never have been able to figure that out or have the motivation to if it was not for the things he taught and showed me. Now he teaches me many new techniques involving flamenco and you really cannot get all of this with someone else. Some other people I know have different teachers and i can tell by the way they talk about them and what they are learning that they do not compare to mine. I am really lucky to have ended up with someone who has such commitment and I am always super excited to keep learning what he has to teach. His knowledge is endless and it blows me away what he shows me. Tony never tries to make any of his lessons boring and he definitely has a talent not many people have. I recommend Tony, 100%."

"I have been a student for Mathew for past few months and I enjoy his classes. In his classes, I've been learning songs, guitar techniques, music theory, and even a little about the music business from his experiences. He has a great in-home studio which is perfect for guitar lessons and I've have learned a lot from him and I look forward to his classes each week. In my opinion, he is the the best type of person to learn from because of his dedication and his ability to teach anybody at any level."
