I've been teaching guitar since 2006, and it's my dream job! I studied guitar at the Ivy League of music schools, Belmont University, and tested out my teaching methods in Music City, Nashville, TN. Now I live in NYC where i teach and perform on guitar.

He’s performed with notable musicians including Grammy award winning Conrad Herwig, and was a founding member of rock band The Delta Saints. Matt now lives in New York City where he teaches, performs on the guitar, and writes music with his wife Laura.
"I've been playing guitar for 10 years but just never could figure out how to make things flow and how to come up with cool licks. Matt (who is amazing) taught me some techniques that have improved my skills tremendously. Thanks Matt! – Jim D., former band mate of Guns-N-Roses drummer Matt Sorum and The Way Guitar graduate.
