With more than 15 years experience, I focus on not just note reading and technique, but music interpretation and expression. Playing the Oboe, we are often forgotten in the print music world so I also work with students on how to find and transpose the music they want to play.

Great teacher! My 3 yo daughter loved her music lesson with Sarah.
Patricia G.
Sarah was energetic, positive, and kind with my daughter, age 11, who was really struggling to get a handle on a song for a play she has been trying to train for. This was her first voice lesson ever. My daughter was drawn in immediately by Sarah’s practical and happy approach and felt more capable and comfortable at the end of the session and is definitely looking forward to the next one. Hard to ask for more than that in a first lesson!

Practical, efficient, patient, supportive. Matthew is able to assess quickly and keep things progressing forward while still highlighting fundamentals. Great for adults. Gentle for those on the lower end of confidence with an instrument.
Kevin C.
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!
Tejas A.
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!

I can provide you with constructive critique as you progress in your work. This also helps motivate students to take a step back and objectively look at where they are now and how far they have come with their work. As a person who is constantly evolving as an artist myself, it is important to bounce ideas off of others to help you improve and get a better understanding on how to develop your own style with your art.

I enjoy the impact art of any kind has on society and others. Art can be used to communicate many things and in many different forms. Also art is subjective and beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Not everyone will love your art expression but it is important that you're passionate about your work.

I enjoy learning through interactions with others and the way they perceive their surroundings. My passion for art started when I was very young.

Currently I am the author and illustrator and designer behind a brand of children's products. My background ...

Legends of the stage were always surrounded by Guitarists who WOWED the crowd with their abilities. Les Paul, Chuck Berry, Hendrix, Van Halen all performed feets of amazement that left you smiling as you left their performance.

Playing guitar not only allows you to imagine you are one of the legends - but actually creates a sense of calmness and fulfillment when your able to surround yourself in your own created sound.

I travelled to Los Angeles at the end of the 1980's to become a "legend". I was fortunate to be in a number of bands. I'm a self taught guitarist that learned the instrument and stage attitude that was needed for the crowd. I never reached the legendary status but the love of guitar will always be there for me.

I hope the love of guitar will be there for you too.

About Neil

I have been playing guitar for 30 years and was in 10 bands from 1986-2000. From Funk-Rock, Punk, Acoustic, Country Rock, Hard Rock I learned not only the skills in playing guitar but the skills to entertain an audience. I'm self taught and understand the basics needed to teach you to entertain yo

Patternmaking for Beginners: How to Make Your Own Patterns

Patternmaking for most beginners seems mysterious and intimidating. It is a subject a lot of sewists try to avoid.

Chess Rules: a Step-by-Step Guide for Beginners

I will admit to you, the reader, that most of the articles I have written thus far assume that the reader is already a fairly avid chess player, who is aware of the basic rules of chess and thus is interested in learning more advanced strategies, traps, and tricks with the goal of decisively defeating the opponent. But, of course, not everybody is born knowing the rules of chess---there are, in fact, many out there who are unfamiliar with the game, and need an introduction. Especially now …
