Make your guitar dreams become reality!
We will learn how to play with proper technique so you can play as long as you want with no pain! We'll start by strengthening the fingers by doing various exercises and learning some notes. Whatever kind of music you are interested in is what we will be playing. It is important that you are having fun while learning. No need to sit through a boring book when there is tons of material to dig into out there!
About Matt L.

I attended West Chester University from 2011-2015 and graduated with my bachleor's in music education. I performed in the marching band, symphonic band, wind ensemble, jazz ensembles, various trumpet ensembles, and a brass quintet. One of my trumpet ensembles made it to the semifinals in the National Trumpet Competition. I backed up various world famous trumpet artists during the International Trumpet Guild Conference at Valley Forge in 2014 such as Bobby Shew, Randy Brecker, Tine Thing Helseth, Canadian Brass, and many others. I took lessons from Robert Skoniczin and Jean Christophe Dobrzelewski during my time at WCU. I can teach any style that you are interested in and can take students of all ages. I believe it is important to have a good musical foundation so we will go over music theory as well in lessons. I have extensive experience teaching trumpet, guitar, piano, bass, ukulele, and saxophone. We will play whichever style of music you prefer. Lessons will be fun!

He explains everything to you. If you need help or if you don't get it he makes sure you know it before you move on.

Matt is a fantastic instructor. Polite, knowledgeable and very encouraging. He was very patient with me and that fact that I am challenged breathing as a result of an accident. I hope I am able to continue. No reservation in recommending.
