If you're already working on your tenth Bach etude, I may not be the classical teacher for you since I play more contemporary styles. But if you're a beginner on classical guitar and want to improve, I can help you learn good technique and some fun repertoire!

About Matthew B.

Hi, I'm Matt and I teach guitar for all ages and abilities. I know what it's like, trying to learn on your own with Youtube videos and online lessons, and it can be not only tough, but boring. My goal is to make music lessons as fun and engaging as possible while designing each lesson specifically to each student's musical tastes and needs.

The best part of our lessons is always the coffee shop jam we hold twice a year to let students play out in public.

Prices below are for lessons at my Bushwick music studio. I teach out of my home studio in Bushwick and in the West Village area.

I have been teaching music for twelve years. I earned my B.A. in Music from Belmont University and I'm currently working towards a M.M. in Songwriting at NYU. I co-founded Nashville Rock band The Delta Saints, have performed guitar in the musical Wicked on broadway, and have written and performed with artists like Steuart Smith of The Eagles and Tony-nominated Jeremy Pope. I produce, perform, teach, and write music based out of my home studio with my wife in Brooklyn, NY.

Ali showing an interest to practicing. He says he had fun with you. We tried that before but never worked out well. I’m happy he liked it. Thank you so much

Matt was the first guitar instructor I've had that has actually taught me enough to perform! I came into his instruction learning only a couple songs by heart, and in a few months I was able to pick up on common chord progressions in popular songs and learn them so quickly. My goal was to be able to play open mic nights at my local college bar, and Matt showed me the tricks to sing and play guitar at the same time. His studio is so welcoming, lots of natural light, and easy to play a guitar in. It was nice that his wife was around sometimes during the class (made me feel more comfortable). Awesome teacher!

Matt is such a great teacher! I went into guitar lessons just hoping to be able to learn to play a few songs, but I've been taking lessons for months now. His studio is super cool and it's fun to jam out and learn songs, plus Matt is helping me work on my own songwriting.
