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!

She asked me what I wanted to learn and assisted me in a very patient way, and showed me the correct way of strumming and whatever else that was needed. A very good start.
Alyson
Felicia is a great teacher! We work well together, she asks how I want to learn and she helps me to understand what I’m learning! As an adult learner, it helps that she can modify my lesson to suit my specific needs. I think this will be a great partnership!!
Autumn
Felicia has truly helped me improve on the viola. From spotting my wrong bow hold to making sure that I am absolutely positive on where the fingerings are for the key, she has most definetly improved my playing over all and is helping me advance past most of my peers in my school orchestra.

I like to craft a lesson plan that revolves around the interest of the student. If you like country but not funk, we'll focus heavy on country and not do any funk. If you want to focus on theory, we will. If you don't want to learn "hot crossed buns" we won't. Let me know the music you like and what you want to accomplish and we can go from there!

Having experience for 40 years of playing guitar, I am playing the instrument by merging different style techniques like flamenco, classical, Indian and jazz. As a result, I had developed unique teaching system and study guide.

About David

As of today, I am playing acoustic guitar with musicians of local churches and congregations. In addition, I played Indian classical string instrument Veena. During the years of my exploration in styles of music, I had chance to travel with the Indian music band in Baltic States with concerts.

I have taken lessons from matt for over 5 years and have progressed immensely as a guitarist and a musician. He is versatile in all sorts of playing and can help no matter what style of music interests you. 10/10
Kyle Melles
Matt was my guitar teacher from 5th grade to 10th grade, teaching me electric guitar for over five years. Now as a Junior in college, I am still thankful for the lessons Matt taught me to have a great foundation in playing guitar. Matt is one of the most knowledgeable people a student could learn from. He pays special detail to the habits that many guitar players fall into when beginning, and made sure these habits were eliminated quickly. I had both parents, grandparents, and friends sit in on our lessons and all were impressed with the careful and thorough approach of Matt’s teaching. Thank you Matt!
Donny Mcneel
Matt has taught me electric guitar through High School and I had learned techniques beyond I thought I could ever conquer. He is a exceptional teacher and is very inspiring to my guitar playing and music capabilities.

"My two boys were shy and inexperienced guitar wanna-be players. Michael opened up his home and his heart and slowly but surely built confidence within them. He has the patience and kindness that were necessary for my boys. However, he knew when and how to push them to become better and more confident with each class. His methods were unique and effective. They looked forward to Wednesday afternoons with Michael. Although we have moved away, my children speak highly of the kind and experienced player that Michael was with them when they needed it most. I recommend Michael!"
