Picture this....you get home after a long day of work or school, you feel a little stressed out by the world, wishing you had more time to get the endless list of things done and more energy to do them.....

Instead of turning on Netflix and zoning out, you pick up your guitar and play your favorite song.

Feels pretty great right?!

Learning to play an instrument is one of life's most rewarding endeavors, that just keeps getting better the longer you pursue it.

With playing an instrument, you will have something you love to do and look forward to doing every single day, enriching your life and those around you.

If you'd like to chat or have any questions just shoot me a message and I'll get back asap :)

My first lesson with Mat and he was very professional, friendly, informative, and patient. I'm looking forward to our next lesson

Mathew is wonderful! My son loved his first lesson!
Shawn
Mathew has made learning fun and stress free for my son. Without Mat's patience and support I do not believe my son would be taking lessons for more than a couple of months much less a year later. My son looks forward to lessons, he trusts Mat, and considers Mat a friend. I can not praise Mat enough for all his contributions to my son's new skill and his part in the building of my son's self esteem!

I can play any number of styles from blues and country to hard rock and heavy metal. I've been playing guitar for about 15 years now. I know music theory very well and I'm great with making the theory part fun to learn while teaching to play a style that the student prefers. I'm an easy going guy and really patient. I make the promise to every student that I will give them every bit of effort and support I can to propel them in their music career. I'm one of those people who gets along with everybody and I like to make my lessons fun for each student.

About Garrett

I've been playing guitar for about 15 years now and I've played in just about every type of band. After playing in a metal band for about 5 years I switched over to a classic rock group for a couple years. In both of those groups I was lead guitar/lead vocals. Now for the last few years I've bee

Great lesson, loads to learn!!!
Brad
I tried learning guitar a number of years ago. Garrett was great getting me started back into guitar. He quickly got me going with some simple chords and techniques. He has a strong understanding of guitar and makes it easy to understand. + he can play anything!
Derrick
What can I say about Garrett. I have never met a better guitarist in my 20 years of playing. Taking lessons with him was one of the best decisions I ever made. I would pay him double. No matter the guitar style, Garrett seems to have played it for years and has real insight on any of the different styles from Blues, to Country, to Rock, to Classic Rock, to Metal. He helped me not just learn riffs or songs but scales and has bug in teaching me more advanced music theory as well. He truly is the perfect mix of good person and amazing guitarist. Don’t miss the chance to learn from one of the best no matter your skill level!

Online Acoustic Guitar Teacher

I've been teaching Acoustic Guitar for 30 years. My students have gone on to play professionally, have their songs on iTunes and teach at the college level. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to identify notes on the neck, start working with open position chords and using those chords to play simple songs. As time goes on you'll be able to play up the neck using movable position chords. (I love teaching this stage. Once the students learns how these chords work and how it saves them time learning, they are always very happy.) I specialize in fingerstyle playing but enjoy pickstyle as well. I typically use Hal Leonard series or Jerry Synder's Guitar Instructor book 1 and 2 to get started. They cover open position chords, moveable chords, pickstyle, fingerstyle,staff notation reading, bass runs, etc. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

Eric is very easy to work with and has a lot of patience. His depth of knowledge will suit a number of playing styles. He's been accommodating with schedule as things have come up on both sides requiring some flexibility. Overall, great experience through the first couple of lessons so don't hesitate to reach out to him.

But, in 3 short months she has me picking, strumming (several different types) and thumb plucking. I really appreciate her professionalism, upbeat attitude and most of all her patience. Highly reccommended!!!!!"

Hit it off with Jeff immediately. He really knows the music I want - which in my case is classic rock - but he can do pretty much anything you need. Still give him 5 stars!"

"My 7-year-old daughter started guitar lessons in March 2014 with Calvin as a beginner. He immediately engaged her by finding out her favorite songs and using those songs as very effective teaching tools, with such patience and enthusiasm. She has been learning to read music and play, and she's come so far already due to his incredible talent and his way of being able to break things down to teach them in a way that really reaches her! He's also very reliable, always on time. I couldn't be happier with Calvin's teaching, and I highly recommend him!"
