***LESSONS ARE TAUGHT IN PERSON AT MY STUDIO OR ONLINE USING ZOOM*** Whether you are starting from square one, or you've reached a point where you can't go further on your own, or you would like to sharpen skills you already possess and want to take them to a higher level, I'm your guy. I've helped thousands of students reach their goals and I've shown every single one of them how to have the level of success with their instrument that they've always desired. I have 20+ years and 20,000 hours of guitar/string instrument teaching experience and a total of 30 years of guitar playing experience with a bachelor of arts degree in music. I focus my lessons strictly on the needs and skills required to ensure my students can perform ANY genre of music in front of ANY audience. I have taught various forms and techniques in basically ALL genres of music both past and present. I embrace ALL forms of music and I will always encourage my students to pick out songs that they enjoy to make the lesson rewarding and engaging! I will also provide the student with exercises and drills that will strengthen their core, empowering the student to learn newer songs quicker and easier. I firmly believe I'm the teacher for you for one reason: you will see instant results, not only on the first lesson, but also in every lesson moving forward!

Matt is a fantastic teacher. There are plenty of people out there that are experts on the guitar, but very few that are truly good teachers. He's experienced, easy to talk to, and patient! If you're nervous about an online class, don't be, his setup is great and I feel like I've made great improvement in a short time thanks to Matt's teaching method and encouragement. Thanks Matt, I look forward to continuing to work with you!
Matt is awesome! I received a tenor banjo as a gift and struggled to find a teacher in my area. Luckily Matt was available online and his teaching style is very relaxed but informative, which helps me a lot! I attended his class every 2 weeks. His feedback is very helpful and the tips he sends me to work on between classes gives me something to improve upon. I highly recommend Matt for any tenor banjo player looking to start learning like me or improve there skills.
I have been learning tenor banjo (Irish tuning) from Matt. Although I'm a complete beginner, Matt has been a very patient teacher. He balances lessons between learning songs and music theory. His wit and humor make every lesson enjoyable.
