I have been learning tenor banjo (Irish tuning) from Matt. Although I'm a complete beginner, Matt has been a very patient teacher. He balances lessons between learning songs and music theory. His wit and humor make every lesson enjoyable.

I've been taking lessons from Matt for more than 8 years now since I was young and he's super friendly and encouraging! Highly recommend as he has experience with many different areas of guitar and that offers freedom to learn whatever you want.

"I had a wonderful experience studying flamenco guitar with Edward and would highly recommend him to anyone. I came to Edward with a very specific problem of trying to learn the rasgueado technique in Flamenco. After spending the better part of a year attempting to learn via Youtube videos, etc., but to no real avail, I knew it was time to find a one-on-one teacher. Edward was experienced, patient, a great communicator, and made me feel comfortable during the lessons. He very thoroughly taught the technique and chose songs for me to practice that would help me to slowly build this ability. When I mentioned a particular song that I was interested in learning, he spent hours in his off time doing a transcription of it for me. A great guy and a great teacher!"
