Matt taught me for a 3 month period and helped me drastically with learning how to improvise guitar solos. I can't thank Matt enough for his help in helping me with a rather unorthodox time to start getting lessons. Each week he told me to bring 3 songs with a guitar solo I would like to learn in different genres and each week we broke down the solos for me to practice and gather their techniques. Thank you so much Matt!

My 9 year old son had his first session yesterday, and he loved it. Matthew is great, responsive and especially patient! My son is looking forward to having more sessions!

About Michael

Thank you for considering me as a music teacher! I work with all ages, and design lesson plans based upon the student's proficiency and age. Drawing materials from standard teaching methods such as Leopard Mozart, Dalcroze Eurythmics (especially useful for younger students), and the Suziki Method,

Michael is such a great instructor! I was worried about re-starting violin lessons as an adult but after speaking with him those worries went out the window. He is very kind, patient, and gives very helpful and constructive feedback during lessons. He seems to tailor lessons and music style to each student and gives lots of great exercises and homework/practice!

He's also very on top of scheduling and understanding when things come up (like an injured wrist). Very enthusiastic and passionate about music - I would highly recommend him as an instructor for any age!
Abel G.
Great instructor! Michael has a great attitude and is clearly very talented. He is willing to adjust the curriculum in order to accommodate my specific needs/ weaknesses. Balances core exercises, scales (including note reading homework), and music playing. We've already started playing songs together which really helps me hear the notes better!

My boys both love Michael!

The art of mic placement and room sound is essential in getting a solid recording. That combined with a solid understanding of how certain frequencies are expressed by different instruments and how to capture the space of the music will expand your abilities in recording.

About ryan

Hi, my name is Ryan and I would love to teach you how to play guitar. I've been playing for over 10 years and have been gigging for a little less than that in my band. Over the years I have gained a lot of experience performing on stage and teaching to people of all ages. If you want to shred, jam,

Mark Herr
Ryan was great! He's obviously a talented guitarist and he is very laid back and makes you feel comfortable. He shows you in detail what you need to do to become a better guitar player. My ONLY advice, and the reason he doesn't get 5 stars, is I think he should have more visual aids with his lessons. For example, write down the different scales or transcribe the first several measures of a song. Then, one has something to refer back to when you are practicing and invariably get stuck. Other than that, I would highly recommend Ryan as a guitar teacher!

You'll learn the basics- bow control, intonation, vibrato, shifting positions. What you play with those skills is up to you- that's what makes music enjoyable!

Heather’s goal is to provide a safe, fun environment for adults and children alike to grow in their love for and ability to play classical music. Along with classical music, she also encourages pursuing individual interests, such as learning how to compose, learning how to play music from guitar chords, and learning pieces the student picks out.

Growth in musical abilities does require consistent practice. Heather helps the students set clear, doable goals to make practice easier. If the student is a child, she will also work with the parents to set appropriate goals. These goals will often include performing in a recital, audition, or other competition. Performing helps push the student to the next level, allows them to share their love of music with others, and teaches them confidence in front of people.

About Heather

Heather has taught piano for 8+ years. Her main focus is classical piano, but she has also helped students learn how to compose and play by ear. Her students have won college scholarships and participated in the National Auditions hosted by the American College of Musicians, National Guild of Piano

I love teaching people how to play songs they enjoy! I'm not too focused on music theory, but am more interested on giving you the tools to play your favorite songs! Playing guitar doesn't have to be difficult or boring. Whether you want to play the Beatles on an acoustic guitar, learn your favorite Metallica riffs or even learn the basics to play at church...I'm your teacher!

"Both of my sons have been taking lessons with Ricardo for about a month. Ricardo first asked them what they wanted to play and has built their lessons around their interests. This has resulted in more spontaneous practice and enthusiasm. My youngest son asked if he could play a Beatles tune for us that he was working on. Ricardo had adapted it so that he could be successful immediately. He was so excited and he sounded great!"

"As a teacher myself, the amount of educators that not only have a gift but have the passion to bestow knowledge upon others are few and far between. Salvador is one of those teachers.

Not sure where to start when it comes to writing songs? Check out these songwriting tips from Austin, TX teacher Gfire M...   I started writing songs fairly early on at age 11, but I never thought about songwriting technique until later, when I studied with teachers from Berklee College, and in Los Angeles and Nashville.
