I have some experience with WordPress but Matthew helped fill in some of the gaps for me. He is an easy going person with a friendly no pressure approach to teaching. His recommendations for me to consider for my site were on point and very helpful. His knowledge of using the proper keywords plus adding call to action buttons on my site were extremely helpful, I now feel I have the right tools in making my site stand out.
He event spent some time researching my issues before we had our first meeting. I look forward to working more with Matthew.

Harmonica is a great instrument but demands good breathing and a understanding of rhythm. I'll teach you some great breathing exercises and you'll learn music theory, which will help you tremendously when it comes to knowing what harmonica to use based off of the key the song your playing is in. All while having fun because that's what make the learning process enjoyable.

I have an earned Masters degree in music and enjoy teaching students of all ages. I am happily married with 5 children at home--4 of them are musicians as well (the youngest is 4).. Students will quickly learn not only the basics of music theory, but will be playing songs as early as their first lesson. It is extremely rewarding watching students have fun, excel, and fall in love with making music. I presently teach music at 3 schools (1 college) and only have a few lessons slots available. I look forward to working with you.

Ronnie has been working with my dad who has dementia for the past couple of months and it's been great! He's very good at encouraging my dad to engage and motivating him to continue his guitar practice throughout the week. I can tell he is very knowledgeable/talented in his craft. Ronnie has been very kind, patient and professional, I would recommend him to friends and family~

The chromatic harmonica was my first instrument which I taught myself by ear at the age of 5. It's perfect for playing melodies. I can play "blues harp" as well which is also a lot of fun and has a different kind of expressive feel with the bending. Whichever one you're interested in learning, I can help you hit the ground running with one of the most portable and enjoyable instruments out there! It's all about the feeling and the fun of it!
